Hero's Journey goes hi-tech with "God of War II"

Official description:

God of War® saw Kratos, a mortal warrior, set upon an epic quest to dethrone a God. But his journey did not end there. In God of War II, Kratos sits atop his Olympus throne, as the new God of War – far more ruthless than Ares ever was. To end his continued torment, Kratos must journey to the far reaches of the earth and defeat untold horrors and alter that which no mortal, or god has ever changed, his fate. God of War II sets an epic stage for a devastating mythological war to end all wars.

From the Paste Magazine review:

. . . But the game’s foundation is based on something stronger than soil and rock: the idea that one man can defy the gods. www.pastemagazine.com/action/article/4316/god_of_war_ii

Petros asks: Can video games become new modalities for consciousness expansion? Will we one day have sophisticated simulations of the process of enlightenment to replace or supplement traditional meditational practices? Only time will tell.
