04 -- God of War: Chains of Olympus -- Ready at Dawn / Sony Computer Entertainment
The second sex scene from the God of War franchise that uses the threesome-based QTE, this time around in place of the Cherub we have a large burning candle for the phallic symbolism -- and the hot wax from it representing... The flow of the water?
The symbolism for this sex scene is like a brick thrown through a plate glass window -- wicked obvious and hard to miss -- and that combined with the use of the QTE to play this mini-game easily explains why it is one of the most memorable scenes from the PSP game that took the God of War franchise on the road for gamers.
While the game is loosely based upon Greek mythology -- among which there is no shortage of pretty much every sort of sexual theme you can imagine -- violence and vengeance are really the central theme of the game, and to be fair about it, the developers of the game actually showed remarkable restraint in not including aspects of the traditional nudity and sexual-focus that Greek mythology is universally known for.
Other than the much-covered threesome-based QTE mini-game that is the subject of this entry in the Top Ten Video Game Sex Scenes of All Time, the game included a number of sexually-charged images but no other blatantly sexual game play elements. Still the two-minutes of sex-based QTE that uses that candle so effectively as its phallic symbol easily secured it a prominent place in the memory of gamers and the number 4 slot in our Top Ten.
