Most unlikeable, unpleasant arsehole of a protagonist I've ever had the displeasure of playing as.
Yeah, yeah, I know, he was tricked into killing his wife and child yada yada yada but his constant "I'm super angry and hate everyone and I'm gonna kill you all and yell every line in an enraged shout ahhhhhhh" thing got old really fast and the way he blithely murders innocent characters made him extra reprehensible. It's possible, if difficult, to make playing a douchebag enjoyable if he/she has at least some charisma, but Kratos has none whatsoever, he's just a repugnant bore.
Your only saying that because the Ship's Captain was an ancestor of yours. still David Jaffe knew what he wanted a character who sees the world through anger. I imagine David Jaffe looking at his own image in the mirror, while pondering how did I the Bruce Banner of video game creators create such an angry bastard where chalk and cheese.Last edited by mjk45 - on 08 January 2019
