    Didn't make a big impression on me but it was really well written. Bit of a strange direction to go in. People who aren't morons already know that kratos' character journey was natural. Trying to explain it to morons is futile. Plus I feel he already came to terms with being a god of war in the main story.

      No. What happened is that Kratos was hijacked and turned into a "le stoic" father figure replacement for Black folk (being stoic means standing by while a defenceless old man gets abused by a YAS KWEEN SLAY character and ssething at a version of yourself that had balls and wasn't a cuck)
      Also, saying "UR JUST DUMB!!!" twice will not make you seem inteligent. Verification not required.

        Exactly. The only way people can justify nuKratos is by ignoring the pile of injustices heaped upon Kratos, Kratos' family, and the people of Greece by the Olympians. It's easy to make Kratos look like a monster when you ignore what Ares, Zeus, and Athena did well before Pandora's box was even opened.

      It was incredibly lazy. Ragnarok is legitimately one of the lowest effort games I've ever played. They didn't fix a damn thing from GoW 4's combat, somehow the scale feels even smaller and the setpieces are completely unimpressive. I genuinely believe Barlog got ousted from the project because he wanted to actually fix GoW 4's mediocrity but Sony just wanted a safe sequel.

      Kratos was a mass murdering psychopath with no human qualities, the only natural journey for him was to the grave or killing everybody he meets.

      I disagree.
      That scene and all of the other Tyr fight dialogues preceding it were all terrible because they're all just basically infantilizing modern therapy speak.
      It's such a product of woke modern writers.
      You might say "well, this is basically just Kratos exorcising his demons, which is something that's been done in fiction for ages", but the dialogue writing is what's key here. A character exorcising his own demons from like the 1980s is written very differently from a character exorcising his own demons through therapy speak in the 2020s.

    Would probably have a bigger emotional impact if nu-GoW felt even remotely like a continuation of the old games instead of like a straight up reboot.

    Everyone defends nu-GoW by saying "NOOOO KRATOS IS A DIFFERENT PERSON NOW" but there's a reason for why there's a huge timeskip where they convienently don't have to show him becoming this different person. It also doesn't explain why the tone and every other character feels totally different as well. It's like the MachineGames Wolfenstein games where the old games *technically* happened but fricking c'mon, it's obviously a reboot

      This is why we needed a fourth Olympus game where one of the main antagonists was Nemesis. (With the ultimate enemy being Eris who told Olympus the prophecy of “the marked warrior”)

      How is he wiser? I don’t get where people get this idea from, he just occasionally spews advice but so far all he’s done is just repeat the same mistakes. He is tricked into killing a god (which he made a huge deal about to Atreus) and then when he finds out he barely even registers it, as if that’s something that you would just brush off. His character is all bluster with no substance or actual depth to it.

      Okay, yes, this is pretty fair critique and I can’t argue that.

      The issue is that old kratos is a cowardly homosexual and young kratos is based

      I am not sure I understand how Young Kratos is necessarily based though when even in the old games he was largely depicted as basically throwing a super destructive temper tantrum?

      Thats the funny thing about it all, old and new Kratos are completely separate characters with no real connection to eachother, everything that happened post gow3 isnt explained, no hints, no random dialogue no nothing
      You cant expect people to take that shit seriously, oh wow, a 1000 year timeskip, and Kratos finds a woman that magically fixes all of his problems. Even I could make a story like that LOL. How are you suppose to take valhalla seriously when all of his major character development is literally off screen??

      Speaking of magical women, Faye is such a shitty character its kinda crazy. She is so wise she fixes Kratos's problems, so strong she fought both Kratos and Thor and lived (lol), so smart she predicts the future or whatever bullshit... Where tf is the character in that? I literally do not remember any flaws about her at all, literally a complete Mary Sue, she is so important she is practically the entire plot of 2018 but shes not even a real character herself

        What secondary homosexuals don't realise is that Kratos is just not that kind of character. He is an american version of a greek tragic hero. And that's good. Hell, it's fricking refreshing. His whole design was meant to portray him as ruthless and menacing. And despite all the gore and violence and carnage of the original games, he was still human, he had his moments and he was allowed to display his emotions without beating the audience over the head with "I was bad, now I try to be good" in the form of literally fricking scolding his past self. He had his moment in the spotlight as a father in Chains of Olympus and most importantly, GoW3 with Pandora. It was a great juxtaposition. The third game is where Kratos is meant to be at his cruelest and most vengeful yet he repeatedly tries to stop Pandora from sacrificing herself. And of course the ending of 3. It was great, Kratos's character arc had come full circle in the best possible way. And then 2018 happened and Kratos has to be "le grizzled old veteran trying to cope with his past while on an escort mission with a child" (again) because that's all we are fricking allowed to have post TLOU. Want an actually good and original story with this theme? Read the Wolf and the Cub. Excuse my fricking rant

        It would be cool if we could have Kratos who travels through pantheons and kills their gods. Getting better at it, thinking he is doing the world a favor by ruining it. Becoming Death.

    I thought he was actually going to have a discussion with his younger self, maybe have a fight scene but it was just nu-kratos chastising the first games in the series for being too violent or some shit

      Frick you, homosexual. Nu kratos sucks. He's a moral coward who fails to recognize that his only mistake in Greece was being to hasty and indescriminate, not that he killed the gods at all. They deserved to die, and not just for what they did to him.

        Nah, Punished Sindri was way more compelling considering his character in the previous game. Stopped caring about his home, his friends, his cleanliness. Single handedly took down the weapons and gates of Asgard, and btfo Odin. Also he stands up to Kratos, and unironically actually probably would pose a huge threat to him.

          Yeah it was so good that a single dwarf could do this in a minute, really showed how amazing he was juxtaposed to us looking for fruit for 2 hours. Also loved how we didn't kill Odin, that was so good man.

          Frick you you dumb Black person.

    I liked it myself. It kind of reminds me of how I WANTED Kenshin’s character arc in the Kyoto arc to go with him recognizing that the Battousai wasn’t some evil alter ego: it was just him desperately trying to help others though still lacking the wisdom and temperance of how. Though I also recognize this is one of those Wachoski dilemmas of what makes a hood game and what makes a good story, storywise it was cool to do the camera pan and young Kratos to disappear. Gameplaywise, I think people would have preferred to pit the older, wiser Kratos against his younger self, and as anything that involves you interacting with it mostly through a controller, they probably should have taken boss fight route.

      How is he wiser? I don’t get where people get this idea from, he just occasionally spews advice but so far all he’s done is just repeat the same mistakes. He is tricked into killing a god (which he made a huge deal about to Atreus) and then when he finds out he barely even registers it, as if that’s something that you would just brush off. His character is all bluster with no substance or actual depth to it.

        Well said. Notice how Freya is a writer's shallow puppet too. She wants to kill Kratos for years and it has come to basically a routine they perform often given Ragnarok's opening sequence. I'll ignore the fact that Kratos would not tolerate anyone risking his child's life. Isn't it ridiculous how Freya just stops trying to kill Kratos and in 30 minutes their relationship is so good she starts quipping around him? Or how Kratos tells her his greatest sorrow while climbing a fricking wall?

    It could've been if Young Kratos was the final boss.
    His theme could be a mix of The Vengeful Spartan from GoW 1/2 and Rage of Sparta from 3.

    >you were always more than that
    okay you can go home, everyone agree's that kratos wasn't a rage baby and has matured, please for the love of god stop bringing up this god awful storyline
    at least 2018 was a decent and enjoyable journey, the ragnarok one was alright during some parts but there are many moments of 'bro just shut the frick up, please shut the frick up and let me run'
    the newer game has so much conversation happening to justify and 'build character' but it honestly feels like none of it ever mattered
    kratos goes and kills gods, no one can really insult him because he's his own worst critic, etc, the entire ragnarok story is all just one big shitpost so kratos can go 'omg hope'
    he's done, he's fine, that's it, he's literally the god of hope

    also because of the shit camera they never zoom out and let you understand the full scale of certain landmarks and stuff, there's still a few moments of awesome but otherwise it's fricking lackluster
    this is the series where 'press x to awesome' was a feature

    No it was dogshit, at the very least let him have an argument with his past self and let him learn something, or have a cool fight or something, greek Kratos just chills there doing nothing (still more intimidating than nu kratos was in both games btw) then nu kratos just starts jerking himself off in that scene with stupidly funny marvel-tier dialogue writing. Frick me this was horrible

    It's cringe because you can sense the writers' seething insecurity.

    GoW4 (just titled 'God of War' because of the modern dev's obsession with pretending that they are creating classics rather than sequels to classics) already spent plenty of time on establishing that Kratos has changed. Considering where we left him in 3, that seems like a story that would be worth telling. How did he survive? Where did he go? How did he meet Faye? How did he bury his past and start anew? We don't get any of those answers. We are simply told that Kratos is now New Kratos. Which is honestly fine. They want to skip the backstory and get right to the new plot and the action within. Except that they don't get on with things. We have a flashback with Athena where she says nothing and it's totally meaningless but New Kratos looks sad. We have a flashback of Zeus that doesn't matter but New Kratos is sad. Rather than showing us who New Kratos is, he just watches the old games with a sad expression. What led him there? What motivated him to continue on? We don't really know.

    This continues throughout Ragnarok, which unceremoniously ends everything set up in the previous game, and then it delivers this worthless DLC, where once again the role of New Kratos is to be judgmental towards Kratos' past actions. This culminates in that scene where the writers finally give up and resort to screaming at the audience "NEW KRATOS IS BETTER HE JUST IS OK LOOK THIS ONE IS MEAN AND BAD AND THIS ONE IS GOOD". Which is just an unmasked version of what they've been doing this whole time.

    It's pathetic to watch because GoW4 started development in 2014, which makes it ten years that they've worked on this new series, and this is still literally the only idea they've had, and they still haven't done anything interesting with it.
