What's the better Action Adventure game?

Why are we even comparing the two? Totally different games.
I just got into God of war and really loving it but Link is probably the reason i'm a gamer.

GoW3 vs. LoZ:SS, then GoW

Though honestly I find the games way too short and easy (no I'm not doing the artificially difficult challenges)

Asking this on a Nintendo based board is like asking on a Playstation based board if LittleBigPlanet Karting is better than Mario Kart. The answer is obvious based on where you ask. Yes there's some logical people who'd consider both series' pros and cons, but you also get infested with the fanboys/fangirls who love their company to death and will outright deny any positives of the other.

I perfer zelda to God of War. I liked GOW until the latest game's trailers. The violence level is getting out of hand.
IOS Fanboy. Cant afford a 16 dollar app but can afford a 499$ device.

You can't compare them.

God of War and Legend of Zelda have almost nothing in common. GoW is basically an evolution of the old side-scrolling brawlers from the 16-bit days, with a dash of RPG progression and unlockable weapons and skills to help add some depth. It's much more comparable to games like Devil May Cry or Bayonetta.

LoZ is much more of an adventure title; in fact, the series comes off almost as an attempt to bridge the gap between action games and RPGs, with its open world, sidequests and collectible items. Really nothing like a pure action title like God of War.

GoW passes for Action Adventure all of a sudden?
Wow, standards have dropped. Next thing you know, CoD will be called a role playing game.

I love Zelda but have never played God of War. I looked it up on Metacritic, and comparing the games along gen I get:

PS2: God of War (94), God of War 2 (93)
GC: Wind Waker (96), Twilight Princess (96)

PS3: God of War 3 (92), God of War Collection (91)
Wii: Skyward Sword (93), Twilight Princess (95)

The handheld comparisons look similar, and I don't feel like typing it out. Zelda wins.
