How the Hell long did you search for-
You know what
Listen, the assumption concerning Kratos being pro-town comes off of his .... [spoiler] in God of War 3, which makes him into a tragic hero rather than a villain. He's even sympathetic, in the end. You can't use a post from eighteen months ago to try to frame my current mindset, especially with the advent of an entire game's worth of development and catharsis between the two times.
Actually, I'd like you to explain why you thought it reasonable to assume that my opinion of him wouldn't change in the interim-
And why that would have anything to do with the default perspective of Kratos as the protagonist regardless. He is the protagonist, even if he is an enormous villain.
Google; it really is everything it's cracked up to be.
As for the rest of your post, perhaps you're right: I haven't played the final game (Kratos turned me off to the series after the first game), which is partly why I'm turning to others to fill in the gaps for me. If they say I'm barking up the wrong tree, so be it.
But this has everything to do with whether Kratos would be pro-or-anti-town, especially after what you said your method for approaching these games is. If Kratos is the villain of the series, then under your system he would logically be anti-town: being the PC amounts to diddly-squat in that analysis. If this was a Macbeth-themed game no one, for example, would reasonably believe that Macbeth would be the pro-town figure, even if he is the titular and main character. Unless GodOfWar has completely flipped the rules on us, the town is made up of the good guys and the scum are made up of the villains: if Kratos is the villain of the series, under your system of thinking he could not be pro-town. And lo and behold, he appears to be our serial killer after all.
