I've been playing since the NES and nothing has ever been more epic than the first half hour of God of War 3. When I finished God of War 2 and saw the ending I was so hyped up to see what would happen. The beginning exceeded my hype and my god was it glorious.
You are correct. That whole opening section (fighting on a titan, the flips, dips, twists, turns & jumps, fighting those "sea horses" only to find that they're just parts of the actual boss, and finally the camera work in murdering Poseidon) is indeed one of the greatest - if not THE greatest - in the history of video games.

w/e that means. MGR is amazing and better then most games endings --- "I think outside the box, to put you inside of a box, like a crossword puzzle" who said this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6svFbckq5s
