I finished the first God of War up yet again (but this time with trophies) on the PS3. I'm still amazed at how great it is, even after 3 times of playing all the way through it. I had more trouble beating Ares this time than either of the two previous times. I guess just chalk it up to getting old and the reflexes just not being as good as they used to be. Now it's on to play God of War II a second time to refresh on the story and be ready to play God of War III after finishing it up. As I've said countless times, best series in gaming bar none.
