I hope I am not the only one who is sick of Kratos. There won't be spoilers. Here's a list of reasons:
- His story has ended. Move on to a new protagonist! It has already been established that the God of War series does not follow Greek Mythology at all, a new protagonist, even an original character, is acceptable.
- His backstory has become boring. I don't expect him to get over what happened, but by now it has stopped being a motivation, and just an annoyance to hear him whine about. Which brings me to my next point:
- Kratos in general. He was a good character to play as for a while, but after many games of whining and destroying everything in his path because that is the only solution he can ever think of, he just comes across as stupid. Sure, he's a stereotypical Spartan, and that is what they do. In that case, every stereotypical Spartan comes across as a moron.
- Prequels are great, but not when they keep doing the same thing. I like prequels because they give more insight into the world and the characters in them. By now, God of War Prequels just send Kratos on missions that desperately try, and fail, to make him seem like an interesting character. Throughout Kratos's run, there was only one story that intrigued me, and in the end, that was handled so badly I gave up whatever hope I had left for Kratos to become an interesting character.
And those are my personal reasons for why Kratos should be replaced.
