Top 10 Action Games Of All Time

4. God of War III

Kratos is no stranger to action. The God of War himself probably can’t brush his teeth in the morning without decapitating a minotaur or two. This PS3 sequel has no shortage of Chaos Blade-flailing and gratuitous evisceration. The silky smooth combat feels great on the PS3, with extra help coming from Sony’s powerful hardware.

This bloody romp hit all the series’ key pillars, with awesome battles, platforming sequences, and environmental puzzles. God of War III even outdid the grand scale of its impressive PS2 predecessors by placing Kratos on the back of a tremendous living Titan right out of the gate. Kratos’ final chapter in his revenge against the nefarious Zeus remains one of the best in the genre.
