Where did this title come from? I've seen it called War God everywhere else.

This page is quite old, so I'm really not sure. God of War and War God are minor translation differences though, so its understandable. If its more accurate as War God, go ahead and change it.

This is the original and the PlayStation games are ripoffs.

Uh, I highly doubt that the people who made God of War were aware of the existence of an obscure Japanese movie from 1976 with the same name as their game series.
