Sex was part of the minigames, right? For me, nung bata ako eh what separated GOW from other games eh yung sex scenes. It was something new and a bit scandalous at the time. Of course ngayon eh normal na mga ganun but I'd like to think that GoW pushed sex as as normal part of gaming, as it is a normal part of life.

I'd have to go with the adult minigames, too.
Prior to this game, the Fear Effect series na ata yung pinaka adult game na nalaro ko. And those games presented innuendos lang. GOW had frontal nudity kaya talagang intrigued ako.

Tapos ginamit pa si Aphrodite sa GOWIII.

Edit: Bago lumabas yung God of War, mayroong game dati BMX XXX. Customizable bikers and all that. Pwedeng topless kahit female riders. Censored yung sa PS2 version. Sa GameCube at Xbox, hindi. Kaya surprising na may topless characters sa God of War.

Nung una ko na-encounter yun part na ito. Nagulat at na-ingit ako kay Kratos dahil naka-score sya kay Aphrodite. hehe

Such power!

Kaya yata si Aphrodite na ang ginamit kasi naisip siguro ng mga developers na pang-finale na.
