Norse mythology is so ritch and interesting in it's own right, that I think they would really do themselves a disservice trying to fit Kratos in there.
It make it come off much more like a pallette swap, rather than an actual interesting game in it's own right.
It would be a much better idea to make this a legacy series imo.

That's a terrible idea, God Of War is one of the best franchise in all of gaming. IMO I think those who don't play GOW games should not talk about whether the series should continue or not, just like I never tell others that Mario and Zelda games should be discontinued.

 

Palette swap? You know that each game has its own distinctly different levels, puzzles, boss fights and secondary weapons? I wish people would play games in a series before commenting on them, Kratos is just one aspect of these games. He is the God Of War, but he isn't the game.

If Kratos is in, I won't buy it.

His role as a tragic Greek hero was fulfilled in the first game, but by now it's gotten ridiculous. He's not interesting and bringing him in with his paper thin but stagnant characterization will only limit the writing in a new setting. I don't need a likable protagonist; just an interesting one whose story I want to see through. Kratos hasn't been that since the first game.

The first game had a fine plot, I'll give you that, but its not even close to being the best in the series. GOW II and Ghost Of Sparta are much better in the story department, as well as otherwise, as the first one was fairly predictable. GOW II had incredible amount of plot twists such that you couldn't guess what would happen next, and Ghost Of Sparta is a touching story about his lost brother.

Which is exactly why he could be replaced by someone who fits better in the Norse mythology.



Signature goes here!

I am neutral on this, I'll be fine with or without Kratos, as long as they keep intact all the things that make this series so special.

That said I don't get the hatred people here have towards Kratos here, the games characterize him really well and he has plenty of reason to be angry, but they wouldn't know that if they only hate him due to his character portrayal on the internet.



No Kratos, still Buy.
Would get GoW 4 anyway, but I'm really ok with Kratos, I really like him and he is a great character, I really don't know why some people dislike him.
But I don't think he'll be bad as he was before, he had vengeance to fulfill his anger, but he got rid of it on GoW 3, and he got Hope, now he should fight for Hope, to protect, he'll most likely still be brutal with the ones he consider bad or tyranes, killing with pure violence and really gore, but not against anything anymore, just the bad guys, if you mess up with him you're screwed, as always.

Really excited for GoW 4.

Sorry but Kraots needs to be retired. I never liked him personally, pls get a new character in God of War, someone that is actually likeable would be nice too.

Why does every franchise need a "nice" protagonist? Kratos is fun to play as, his story explains his reason to be angry pretty well and the gameplay is solid, so I don't get why are people up in arms over his presence? Besides the fact he is an iconic character, something PlayStation as a brand is lacking :P



If we're JUMPING mythologies here, it doesn't make ANY sense to me to bring Kratos back. Just pick a similar character. Kratos was, essentially, made up anyway.



I had some sort of compassion for the selfdestructing/badass character that was Kratos,so much that i wanted the story to end for him. :p



Kratos sucks, and I honestly have no idea how they plan to properly explain him moving from one mythology to another.
