Kratos Was Almost Cut from God Of War for Not Being Soy Enough



what if I told you that Kratos was almost cut from God of War for not being soy enough so that is kind of where we're at right now that is where we're at right now in the video game industry where they are wanting to cut characters like Kratos because they are basically – I don't know manly I guess I don't know so we're going to go ahead and get into this article thank you – Cory bar log by the way because he actually is the one that pretty much saved Kratos so huge round of applause – Cory can you imagine can you imagine I got a board game without Kratos it wouldn't be a god war game without Krios anyway let's go ahead and get into the article here Kratos almost didn't return as a protagonist and new God of War when Sony Santa Monica first started working on the God of War reboot members of the team suggested getting rid of series protagonists Kratos yes this is an actual thing Kratos has been God Ward's only main hero at this point and what's wrong with that he's a great hero there's a reason why he's so popular but many of the studio didn't think he should come back for the new game game director Cory Cory Balrog Balrog bar log revealed this tidbit at game lab Barcelona this week in an on-stage talk bar log recalled the process of making of going through every defining characteristic for God of War as a game and as fiction in that stage nothing was off the table we lifted out and we went through point by point and started talking about each one trying to determine like if you removed this doesn't make it not God of War said bar log a major point of contention surprisingly was Kratos himself a major point of contention was Kratos the the the heartbeats the lifeblood of God war some members of the team believed his angry antihero persona just didn't belong in today's world and today's SOI infused world pretty much is what they're saying here and even early discussions people were saying we had to get of Kratos which is just insane this is actually insane so because of kratos's you know angry antihero person out persona they almost cut him out because he was just I don't know – aggressive – whatever like can you imagine like how are people this there there is way too much soy in the gaming industry right now if this is where we're at I mean it's not necessarily just the gamer in the game developers fault because obviously they're saying in today's world which in today's world unfortunately we have a lot of soy boys and stuff so you know it's not necessarily just the developers fault but I'm glad that they took the stand to actually keep Kratos in the game because nobody and I'm sorry nobody not not the actual real gamers out there the normal thinking human beings the common sense people nobody would want to play a god war game with a soy boy I don't even know what you what kind of a they probably would've made like a they probably would have made the main character like a female woman of color disabled person or something or something along those lines so is so let me see here so there was a bunch of people who were in the camp of no more Kratos he's annoying he's done really really he's annoying he's done all right I'm sorry those people who were thinking like that shouldn't be working on a God of War game and I already decided right from the beginning I was like I want to use him because I want to see if we could make a turn around the character see if we can take somebody that people hate you know or they'd like to hate which is good I think you know the thing I love about god of war is that it does tell a really awesome it does give a really awesome character arc to Kratos you know it takes his character in a completely new direction he has a son now he has new responsibilities all that type of stuff and the diamond the dynamic of the relationship between Kratos and at Rao's is just one of the best in videogames it really is just so so good and seeing Kratos is you know his character being developed because of his son now is just like phenomenal they did a fantastic job with that they made an incredible story out of Kratos and they still kept him you know one of the mohit Kratos is one of the most masculine video game characters we've ever seen and I love it nothing else is more awesome than getting to feel that testosterone on screen as you're playing us as Kratos you know so interestingly interestingly throughout this process barolong discovered that God who or means different things to different people for some Greek mythology was integral to the games this was particularly shocking for the director because they thought it would limit where the team can take the game new game as far as setting and fiction which personally for me I loved where they took them to a game because I am obsessed with Norse mythology mythology so I really did appreciate where they took the game Kratos was in bar logs eyes god of wars defining characteristic which I completely agree with this conversation also extended to major gameplay feel elements such as the floating camera jumping platforming and even the blades of creative chaos which I actually personally prefer the new style gameplay than the old just because I don't know I just prefer it more than the old style but much of that has obviously been changed for the new game but the journey to pick and choose what to fight for wasn't easy and I think it was just they really did not like the character they wanted to see a new character and I think really was they wanted to see him change and so that took a lot of convincing to say no no no I really think this is a good idea we need to stick with this so you know and that's fine like I I do agree that Kratos isn't necessarily the the most you know the most positive of characters in the original series but that's kind of the point the point is that he is so filled with rage over what happened to his family and all of that stuff and you know that is what drives him that's the whole point of God war you know and I don't think that anybody can really argue that's actually what the whole point of got war is and obviously obviously it's been successful for them because it's a very popular series and them being able to take his character arc in this new direction because of a son and all that type of stuff I think just works so well for Kratos but but yeah in this current environment apparently Kratos is not not going to do well apparently to these people so you know I don't know it's just crazy this is what happens when you allow SOI to be the beverage of choice in the workplace that's good that's good some members of the team believed his angry antihero persona just didn't belong in today's world well of course he does and now we have angry butterflies who get offended by the very air they breathe because there's richness homophobic against women etc so of course he doesn't belong seriously wanted the cut Kratos out finished god of war first and move on exactly exactly like I don't understand why these developers want to pander to this like 1% of their audience maybe like 2% but uh of their audience that are like these SOI infused butterflies pretty much and stuff so it doesn't make any sense to me and I love how there's kind of a line being drawn now in the sand between these different developers some developers like no we are going to continue to make games for the massive majority of our gamers and stuff same thing with a bottle warfare the new call of duty modern warfare game you know there's we've already seen so many so many SOI boys that are so just upset with the game and stuff because it's too realistic or gritty or too intense or whatever and I you know I I wanted to support those games I want to support the games that make the SOI boys upset that's that's what I want to do so 11 the comments below what do you think about this news what do you think about the whole god war situation I'm looking forward to seeing where they go with the series and with Cory Barra log involved I think that I think that is good he should stay involved with the series he is doing a great job and God of War was a smash success so don't don't change that don't change Kratos too to whatever you know give him character development for sure I totally agree with that but don't just cut him because he's too masculine or whatever you know with that being said let me know in the comments below what do you think I hope you guys enjoyed this video and I'll talk to you all very soon in another video talk

    if you remove kratos, or turn him soy and untrue to who he was, God of War falls apart. They ever do it, the series flops.

    Sounds like alot of people there are doing it for the wrong reason & should be fired.
    Instead of jammin soy based agendas down gamers throats how about further his story & concentrate on gameplay…thankfully those feminine men in name only didn’t get their way & we got a pretty epic game.

    Dude it's no secret that he can be a very unrelateble and unlikable guy, this doesn't seem to be a soy issue it's just an issue of that the character wasn't likeable. In fact he was the reason I never could get into those games I never liked kratos, hes just a bit too much of an asshole.

    Any cunty little boy who actually says "soy boy" unironically is a prime candidate for eugenics. I mean it, the only time I hear that stupid shit is when someone is making fun of "men" like geeks + gamers or the quartering. "oh no the mean old SJWs are making my video games soy boy libtard propaganda waaahhhhh waaaahhh." Goddamn if sitting around bitching about things like how "soy" a god of war game could have been makes you a man then slap a vagina on me, because I have better things to do. See you morons later. I leave you BOYS with a quote from a real man "go and fuck yourself "- Orcon welles

    I'm somehow not surprised given the crap we see these days in our entertainment. I can understand Kratos being too one dimensional in the old games, but he is still the face of GoW. You can't remove the god of war himself from his own series. I'm glad Cory Barlog insisted on keeping him in the game. Also happy Kratos for the first time developed as a character while still ripping monsters in half and flipping temples with brute strength.

    It concerns me that people who actually thought Kratos was annoying or too angry are in charge of making our games. What sad, pathetic people they must be.
