The player controls the protagonist Kratos, the new God of War who killed the former, Ares. Kratos is betrayed by Zeus, the King of the Olympian Gods, who strips him of his godhood and kills him. Slowly dragged to the Underworld, he is saved by the Titan Gaia, who instructs him to find the Sisters of Fate, as they can allow him to travel back in time, avert his betrayal, and take revenge on Zeus. Unsuccessful at killing Zeus, Kratos uses the power of the Fates to retrieve the Titans from the past, and leads them in an assault on Mount Olympus.



# Halo
Halo is the best-selling xbox game of all-time. Halo is a multi-billion dollar military science fiction video
game franchise created by Bungie and now managed by 343 Industries and owned by Microsoft Studios. The series centers on an interstellar war between humanity and a theocratic alliance of aliens known as the Covenant. The Covenant, led by their religious leaders The Prophets, worship an ancient civilization known as the Forerunners, who perished in combat with the parasitic Flood. Many of the games center on the experiences of Master Chief John-117, one of a group of soldiers codenamed Spartans, and his artificial intelligence (AI) companion, Cortana. The only other single Spartan focused on in the series is Noble Six, the main protagonist of Halo Reach. The term "Halo" refers to the Halo rings: large, habitable structures that were created by the Forerunners to destroy the Flood. They are similar to the Orbitals in Iain M Banks' Culture novels, and author Larry Niven's Ringworld concept.
