    Beards are just obvious makeup for chinlets and weak jaws

      Stigma. homosexuals think a big beard makes them inherently cool these days and said homosexuals are all over the games industry now which means their homosexualry is being poured into vidya.

      It used to be cool until these creatures appropriated it

        I don't have a moustache, I just have a regular beard. I was simply saying that the stigma of homosexuals pretending to be cool by growing a beard has affected how some people see bearded videogame characters like OP has said. I wasn't saying beards are bad. I was saying that gays think they're naturally, inherently cool because of the beard they have, which is dumb.

    It's not the beard. If you cover the lower halves of their faces Kratos (the real one) is still more intimidating.

        No, it's also the sharper brow ridge and the more aggressive eyebrow position, and a larger skull dome.

        The right's brows are more furrowed than the left's, that's why. But besides that, hairy dad Kratos is supposed to look less ferocious because he's trying to be a better role model.

      I think beardless Kratos looks ridiculous, not necessarily because of his lack of beard but because of his facial expression. He doesn't look angry, he looks disgusted, like he's making a funny face
      No wonder you autists with 0 facial recognition can't tell the difference and think more frowned eyebrows make him more intimidating

      Kratos has matured, that's all. He's better than he used to be.

        matured in what way? Aside from like two instances in the first trilogy Kratos was completely justified and right to do what he did

          they specifically point that out in the latest DLC. part of his character growth is coming to terms with his past and admit that it was not all bad and justified from his limited point of view at the time.

      Old Kratos still had exaggerated proportions (cartoonish) even if he looked like a real person. Modern games insist on their characters looking like real humans with no styling so they can't convey anything visually

    It's weird how when I first grew a beard 20 years ago I started getting more respect from men but soon after hipsters started growing them. Now it's a mixed bag. I know everyone here thinks beards ate for soicucks only now but it's not really true

    Because being bald and having a completely untrimmed beard doesn't work for Kratos who has strong facial features and is supposed to be a disciplined Spartan.

    also, beards are a sign of relaxed grooming habits and, if coupled with weight gain, are a sign that an adult male is past their prime and no longer has the fire in them to keep in shape and clean.

    In the 2010s beards started becoming popular with the leftist, reddit using, starbucks drinking, hybrid driving type.
    So beards went from being exclusively associated with rugged manly men to mostly being associated with that type of crowd.

      And conservatives call leftists ""fragile"". They fricking abandoned beards being a sign of virility for centuries because a few people they don't like started having them.

    A short or trimmed beard exhumes a confidence and professionalism, or alternatively a strictness to oneself. To let their beard hang free is to create a homely feel, someone that is less about upkeep and more letting the days pass by.

    Because the one on the left has a chiseled jawline and neatly groomed facial hair that makes him look intimidating. The beard on the right is exclusively worn by coping baldlets and homosexuals.

    because the last 15+ years your narrow perception of beards have been with balding onions boys.

    in reality beards are manly, a chad with a beard will never not be manlier than one without a beard.

    shaving is for boys.

    I'd need to see an actual 1:1 comparison, kratos pic on the right has a much less tense expression, his scars are faded or almost non existent & his overall complexion is softer. I think those things are far more influential than the beard, slap a beard on the left side kratos & he'd still look way more intimidating than the other one.

    Grown beard was either a sign of a well educated upstanding individual, or a filthy washed up hobbo wreck, there was no in-between.
    Fast forward to present and it's most common association is a latte sipping neckbeard hipster redditor.

    The nu-GoW Kratos looks like a badass but in 2024 beards are associated with redditors who are into polyamory and collect funko pops so it makes him look less "cool and intimidating".
