I have to start this post of with a confession, I haven’t really played video games since I was in college. On random Thursday nights my roommates and I would get a few bottles of wine from Costco, meet back at our place and then we’d play Tetris Attack until our eyes were strained (yeah, we partied). It was a good time, sure, but that game was already 10 years old at that point. I guess what I’m saying is when it comes to video games I’m in more of a “you kids stay off my lawn phase.”
But even with my lack of video game savvy, this commercial for God of War Ascension totally appeals to me. I really like Ellie Goulding’s ethereal vocals. And the cool visual of that girl turning to ashes intrigued me so much that I texted my little brother to find out the deal on this game. Jason reported back “It is the story of Kratos becoming a god, I believe. I haven’t played it yet but it looks good.” Brothers: so smart.
What do you think? Do you play video games? Will you play this one? Did you find seeing a disclaimer about nudity, gore, and sexual situations followed by a commercial of a kid running around as weird as I did?
You know we can get away
Because I’m calling your name
Every day I feel this pain
But you just turn and walk away
I just can’t keep hanging on to you and me
You and me
With you and…
With you and…
