God of War (2005 Video Game)
Kratos: [opening lines] The Gods of Olympus have abandoned me, now there is no hope!
Narrator: And Kratos cast himself from the highest mountain in all of Greece. After ten years of suffering, ten years of endless nightmares, it would finally come to an end, death, would be his escape from madness. But it had not always been this way, Kratos had once been a champion of the Gods...
Kratos: [strides out of his ship] Ten years, Athena! I have faithfully served the gods for ten years! When will you leave me of these nightmares?
Athena: We have one final task of you, Kratos. Your greatest challenge awaits in Athens; where even now, my brother: Ares, lays siege, as we speak. Athens is on the verge of destruction. It is the will of Ares my great city fall. Zues has forbidden the gods from waging war on each other. That is why it must be you, Kratos. Only a mortal trained by a god has a chance at defeating Ares.
Kratos: And if I am able to do this; to kill a god, then the visions: they will end?
Athena: Complete this final task, and the past that consumes you will be forgiven. Have faith, Kratos, the gods do not forget those who come to their aid.
Narrator: Leaving the rotting carcass of the hydra behind, Kratos set sail once more. His greatest challenge, and freedom from his growing madness lay before him, in the ancient city, of Athens.
[Kratos saves the boat captain from falling down into the dead Hydra's stomach]
Boat Captain: Thank the gods you came back for me!
Kratos: I didn't come back for you!
[Kratos takes the key from the captain's necklace and throws him down Hydra's throat]
Kratos: God of war. I haven't forgotten you. For what you did that night, this city will be your grave...
Kratos: [to Ares] The monster you created has returned... to kill you!
Narrator: For Kratos, victory was worth everything. Even his soul.
