    Well I don't entirely agree that this article is trite, I do think JamesTQuest does bring up a decent point. Kratos' world is that of the greek gods, basically one of the original stories ever told, its told because its good. So right off the bat anything that has somehting to do with gods and their names etc has something in common with God of War. From there it goes into the story aspect of it, a good story needs a tragedy and having your wife and child (in these cases, daughter) killed are pretty tragic, Kratos did it himslef in a very "Murder in the First" kind of way in the fact that he was the weapon of the murder, but not the murderer himself. Ares filled the role of the warden from "Murder in the First" in Kratos' story. Anyways I haven't even played Max Payne, but I'm sure its a good game from the sound of all of the posters here, but I guess wampastompa Im just saying that before you burn James at the stake, think about what hes saying...it is a pretty common story element. That being said I would still say that those scenes from the two games are similar enough to cross the coincedence line and bring it into the realm of one paying homage to the other, but its not like that hasnt been done before either right?
