I ask, without malice towards Kratos or his fans, but couldn’t this game have gotten a new goddamned hero? Before you snipe, I saw that it’s his grandkid or w/e, but that’s just Kratos Jr by any other name. I’m really tired of Kratos; just retire him and his reskins and give us a new hero, maybe a Norseman, maybe a Norsewoman?

I would shit a brick in glee if I got to play a Valkyrie-esque Norsewoman God of War game.
