Clash of the entertainment

Now that we have the spring over us, it seems that a greek fanbase has grown motivated by both the film 'Clash of the Titans' and the game 'God of War III'. Having seen the first (which is a remake btw), and finished the 11 hour play of the second, I have realized that maybe greek mythology is still dismissed at some point, or maybe the written track or popular knowledge can be interpreted in several ways because each one tells a similar story in a different manner... or Kratos' story is the most original of the two.

About the technical part, I'm afraid that God of War gives a higher entertainment factor (even better visuals!) than the one provided by the movie. But about the emotional appealing: are games surpassing traditional linear-media productions? Which semigod works best, Kratos or Sam Worthington?
