10 Cringeworthy Video Game Scenes That Made You Feel Dirty
6. Aphrodite's Chamber - God Of War 3
The God Of War series is the first place you go if you want to experience the best in mindless, OTT violence with little or no emotional consequence. Kratos' personal goal of eviscerating every ancient Greek god and goddess plays out as a series of huge set piece moments, ranging from the muder of the ACTUAL god of war, Ares, all the way up to the top of Mount Olympus as you pummel Zeus into a puddle of blood, bone and bits of brain. However, one deity that Kratos never rained a stabby death upon was the goddess of love, Aphrodite, imagined in this series as an insatiable nymphomaniac. As you approach her chamber late on in GoW3, you happen upon her in the throes of passion with two other women but what she really wants is Kratos. Cue bare-breasted innuendo (to call the dialogue flirting would be misleading, there's no ambiguity there), heavy breathing and should you choose to hop into bed with her, an off screen romp while her previous bedfellows watch on in a lustful glee. For all it's cartoony, over the top and completely ridiculous, it's still the most cringeworthy thing in the whole game by a country mile. And for reference, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, not making love, but that's just splitting hairs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t5-1_bIobo
