Default God of War Storyline

In trying to figure out which God of War I should play first, I was wondering where in the God of War storyline Chains of Olympus (and Ghost of Sparta for that matter) fall.

I would like to say I did try and google this, but every result that came up appeared to be a full explanation spoiling the story which I'm avoiding reading because I [sadly] never played any of the God of War games before and thus am still experiencing them for the first time.

Cheers, and thanks for your help

The chronological order is:

- Chains of Olympus
- God of War 1
- Ghost of Sparta
- God of War 2
- God of War 3

However I wouldn't recommend you to start in that order because if you really have the choice I'd always say play the first one first.

The order ive played them in would be

GOW1
GOW2
GOW3
Chains of Olympus
Ghost of Sparta (Not yet started)

And i would have to say that it ranks up there with the best series ive ever played

I would not recommend playing them "chronologically". It would be like viewing the Star Wars Saga for the first time by watching Episode I first... Just not how it's meant to be and would ruin plot points. Play them in the order they came out on PS3. GoW I, then II, then III, then CoO, then GoS. Playing CoO and GoS before would ruin some plot points...

Are the Origins games full game experiences or would you say it's more akin to a PSN title? I have no doubt I'll end up playing and fully enjoying both titles as I've greatly enjoyed the series thus far, but I ask more as a time question.

Yeah, the origins games are both full games. They're HD remakes because both originally came out on PSP.

The correct release order is as follows:

God of War (2005)
God of War II (2007)
God of War: Chains of Olympus (2008)
God of War III (2010)
God of War: Ghost of Sparta (2010)

This is the order they should be played in.
