God of War served as the other half of the inspiration sphere for Darksiders, and as such, it's only appropriate that it gets a place on this list.
The original Darksiders has some pretty epic moments. But God of War was built from the ground up to not only provide epic moments but to also let you live through them with against huge set pieces.
Each of the GoW games starts out on a high note, whether it be fighting the multi-headed hydra in God of War or battling the gods as you ascend Mount Olympus in God of War 3. Alongside DMC, GoW helped define hack and slash combat for more than a generation of consoles to come.
If you're interested in playing the rest of the series, then you will have to go back to the PS3. There you will find two HD collections, one being for the PS2 games and the other being for the PSP games, as well as Ascension, which served as a prequel to the series.
