Can anyone be mad at the poor guy after watching this live action vid (remove the m. If on comp)
And kratos ain't a god as a last remember
I like the GoW games, but the more I played them, the less I liked him. His 'I'm the Almighty Kratos' attitude just bugs me, and I hate how it followed him into this game.
"Man Raiden that's cold. Even for you."- Kev
"I gave Ares my free will in return for victory over this war, nothing could possibly go wrong from this, why did I decide to start a war in the first place? Oh yeah I'm a **bleep**. What's this? Ares orders me to murder people including my family? ARES THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT even though I was the one who started the war in the first place then proceeded to give the GOD OF WAR my free will and logically he would've made me do something I would regret."
Now when the first game ended I was fine with it because he seemed to have developed out of that to where he knows what he did was wrong.
But how does the second game begin? Kratos doing the exact same thing he put himself down for, that's just spectacular he learned absolutely nothing from that experience.
Also I've gotten this on Youtube before so I'll bring it up now, yeah there were people like that in the past in the real world but that doesn't mean it's right, those guys were **bleep** too.
It's his character that's totally unlikable. He's a flat character. His only personality is an equivalent of someone PMS-ing to an extreme level = p*ssed off and annoying. It doesn't help that he looks hideous with no redeeming qualities. On the list of "top 10 characters that annoy me" in any form of media, Kratos gets the number 1 spot above Jar Jar Binks.
It doesn't matter the origins of his personality since it doesn't change the fact that he's not likable one bit. People who created the game gave him the personality of sand paper rubbing on skin.
The best part of the latest Mortal Kombat game is you can use fatalities on Kratos. Kung Lao's Razor's Edge, Noob's Make-a-Wish, and Jade's Half-Mast are my favorites.
