Okay first, I don't think what you are saying is what makes a god a god in God of War is. It isn't simply having "godly powers". The gods are a race of people, the product of Titans reproducing. Stripped of his powers, Zeus would still be a god, Just like the Titans are always Titans. Kratos and Hercules are always demigods, the results of the gods reproducing with mankind. When Kratos becomes the God of War, he doesn't have "godly" powers. He has the powers given to him from Pandora's Box. Powers that I believe belong to the war between the Titans and the gods. When Kratos becomes, "the God of War". Its a title. Nothing more. But in every semblance of the phrase as used for the title of the series, Kratos is the "God of War". He is a master of war, the best of warriors. He is the God of War. He is still the God of War. He is still Kratos, Ghost of Sparta, God of War, the God Killer, etc. And that is what he will always be. Kratos problem is his guilt. But his guilt isn't about killing the gods. It is an overall guilt of being a really good warrior, a really good killer. He is going to have to accept his past to move past it. Accept that he is, "the God of War". But here is a question for you. Why do you assume they want to change the name? Why do you assume they need to? What if the title fits perfectly for all those involved? Balrog say he didn't want it to be called, "God of War"? You sure there is no underlying reason for the title?
