    29:40 I remember watching the documentary "Raising Kratos" where Christopher Judge talked about how the Kratos parable felt so close to his situation, being a distant and absent father because of his work, and when they showed the mocap of this scene, where he shed a sincere tear while delivering the line "I know"
    That hit me very hard in the feelings
    For reference, that's the scene chclip.net/video/lJZWKBDXXFY/video.html

    One fun fact about Atreus being Loki, they went further with this and put some names in norse letters showing that Faye was actually Laufey and the giants gave Kratos the name Fárbauti, which in the original Norse myths are Loki's parents. Since not much is known about Fárbauti, they were able to write Kratos as him without any issue.

    • piyo!
      piyo! Před 23 dny +8

      Kratos's name being Fárbauti also makes sense with his character. "Fárbauti" roughly translates to "strikes suddenly," "strikes with anger," or "dangerous striker". It likely comes from the words "fár" (hostility, anger) and "bauta" (to strike).
      Alternatively, Fárbauti, Laufey, and Loki could be symbols for a lighting strike (Fárbauti) igniting (Loki) dry leaves (Laufey).

    26:12 Interesting thing here. Acording to Ragnarok stories, Magni and Modi are among the few gods who survive. So if Odin let them know that, I suppose that they would go into battle without fear of death, which is why it Modi is so shocked beyond the simple "my brother just died" explanation.

    A moment I appreciate: When Kratos sees Zeus, he sounds freaking TERRIFIED. Not even of Zeus, but of what that means, the memories of the past, who he was.
    There are many moments I love, but this is one I was thinking of

    43:11 I've never really seen someone else point it out, but when Atreus calls the the world serpent, you can see his iris change to a glowing white as he speaks the language. Personally I think it's to symbolize his godly ability of languages and I would assume we might see it again come Ragnarök.

    I honestly love how fast Jormungandr (I think that's what his name is) is when he gets summoned by Atreus, because realistically, many giants would most likely be much faster than most other beasts, as they have huge amounts of muscle in their bodies.

    • Atlas
      Atlas Před dnem

      not to mention that Jormungandr is a snake so he is naturally able to move/strike insanely fast

    • muhammad ajmal

      Remember the serpant is the child of Loki

    • Vibe King
      Vibe King Před měsícem +2

      @BigNick2K21 understandable, but even then, a creature as big as Jormungandr would most likely be pretty fast in comparison to it's size. And all of that is due to much of it's size coming from length as opposed to height, as it's long enough to wrap around the entire planet in Norse Mythology.

    • BigNick2K21
      BigNick2K21 Před měsícem +3

      Well realistically, a creature that size would be a bit slower, because since they are so big they deal with more wind resistance. Which is why in pop culture when we see giant things on screen, it almost looks like they are moving in slow motion. Watch Pacific Rim 1 for an example.

  • Sam Gordon
    Sam Gordon Před rokem +4522

    Atreus' shift isn't out of nowhere, it's showing that Kratos was partly right to keep it a secret. The power went to his head.

    • Logan Huntley
      Logan Huntley Před 6 dny

      No, he was completely wrong to keep it from him, what made Atreus go off the rails was that Kratos only told him part of the story, if he’d laid it all out from the start Atreus wouldn’t have done what he did.

    • Logan Bounds

      @Sean Baldwin especially the fact that it is Greek wine, and therefore would’ve been heavily undiluted

    • Veny Redun

      Atreus change in his behavior is too sudden even cory admited that. He said that after bring asked what were the largest weaknesses or something like that, things he wish they could have improved some more in the game. atreus's change is too sudden and too fast and that there is not enough variety of enemies, especially boss type enemies. Those, in his words, were the biggest flaws of the game, and i think he is right.

    • Jay Barry
      Jay Barry Před 29 dny

      Kratos didn’t develop enough of a connection to be a grounding, calming influence on Atreus so when the boy needs that the most he’s going to become arrogant. Kratos knowing the price of such an attitude makes it hurt even more for him to see.

      (Of course till someone points out the facts showing the bs)

      SUPERFUNK Před 5 měsíci +17

      not really a smart move since it was their last resort at the time and he didnt do it while having that in mind. however the result is beneficial

  • WakenerOne
    WakenerOne Před 11 měsíci +160

    42:30: One thing worthy of note in the final battle which ties into Freya being unable to cause harm: In the stage when Kratos is in the pit with Baldur and Baldur is constantly joined by creatures Freya summons, many players may attack them just because they are there and it's a video game. The fact is, these creatures are incapable of doing the slightest damage to Kratos, and when one is on his back "attacking" him, *_Baldur's_*_ attacks can't harm Kratos, either._ However, when Kratos flips one of them off of his own back, it usually knocks Baldur down, giving Kratos a chance to sneak in an attack. The whole situation plays so completely against video game reflexes and expectations, and it does it so subtly that players can finish the fight and never know that they were squandering their greatest advantage. That deserves a win.

  • El Gordo
    El Gordo Před 11 měsíci +271

    I think the advice: "close your heart to it" might be an interesting detail. Kratos grew up a Spartan and was likely told the same thing.

    • Axel771
      Axel771 Před 22 dny +4

      And because he was taught that on Sparta he realized In Ragnarok that it wasn't In Atreus' Nature to do that.

    • morgan russman
      morgan russman Před 3 měsíci +8

      What you mentioned about Kratos maybe being told to close his heart, while I do suppose that is true, either that or he learned not to grieve about the idea of people passing and Kratos is telling his son to do that.

  • Black Fox Gaming

    One thing I didn't hear you mention when talking about the Blades' reveal is they are in a state of disrepair with reddish-brown discoloured patches. Considering who he used them on last; Zeus' blood literally turned to rust on his blades.

  • John Eusebio
    John Eusebio Před rokem +2647

    Kratos not speaking in contractions might also be because he's speaking a second language. We hear it as English, but he's speaking Nordic in this game while his first tongue is Greek. He learned the formal ways of speaking and memorized the rules, but he isn't native and so casual speech and idioms aren't as comfortable for him.

    • Boo Bies
      Boo Bies Před 2 měsíci

      it was actually specifically mentioned, when atreus tries to teach kratos to read old norse, "i know how to read, just not this tongue"

    • GIO 123

      I think it's just because he's matured because sure he was alone most of the time but he had over 1000 years to learn Nordic and at least When my grand parents speak Spanish Wich is the only language they know the don't use contractions because they are more wise

      @Warrewall But, again, Atreus confirms **in the game** that Kratos can speak the language.

  • TheDoctorofFate
    TheDoctorofFate Před 10 měsíci +112

    One thing he didn't mention was that when Atreus starting speaking the old language, his eyes starting glowing, which I think was showing him unlocking his first of many powers, understanding any language.

    • ShroomieWoomie

    37:23 Kratos actually intentionally broke the bridge, so that Baulder doesn't find out about that way to jotunheim, i'd say that was such a smart move from Kratos

  • ZafiroDoesGames
    ZafiroDoesGames Před 5 měsíci +131

    38:59 I always read this as Atreus finally realising why Kratos doesn't talk about his past. I just thought of it as Atreus respecting his father and sparing him what he could tell was the guilt of things he'd done.

    POSTALMNDCLARITY Před 9 měsíci +117

    The moment that stood out the most for me is when Kratos looks up at Freya and asks "will you help him?" He looks so vulnerable for the first time. It literally made me feel something about Kratos that I've never felt before.

    One of my favorite things about this game is all the little glances and nods the characters do. When Freya asks Atreus to get herbs from her garden, he looks to Kratos for permission, and only leaves once he nods yes. Then, when Freya is about to put the protective rune on his neck, Kratos glances down to Atreus, reminding himself why he’s doing this.

  • superspider64
    superspider64 Před 11 měsíci +145

    30:18 I think the choice of enemy was even deeper than that. Prior to this you could only deal damage to those enemies with bare knuckle combat, and they were quite tough, but to the blades they are just fodder. It really shows the power of them

    • Ammar Jafri

    I could say 1000 great things about this game, but having just replayed it when it came to PC, one small thing I noticed was that after Brok asks if Sindri had been eating, one of Sindri's camps has some fish on spikes rotting with flies around them. He actually does forget to eat sometimes and they showed us subtly. I adore that kind of story telling.

  • ShroomieWoomie
    ShroomieWoomie Před 3 měsíci +21

    Something I find interesting about the Leviathan Axe is that it can be used by anyone but it doesn't mean anyone using it can recall it like Kratos can. In a novelization of the game (or somewhere else) Atreus tells Kratos something along the lines of "I wish you told me only you can recall the Axe."

  • Nerazmus
    Nerazmus Před 9 měsíci +25

    Another win at the start:
    Atreus's neck tattoo meaning "Fishnet mind" is actually a foreshadowing because Loki is responsible for inventing fishing net in norse mythology.

  • Misery Chode
    Misery Chode Před 10 měsíci +18

    At 22:09, I only realized this recently, but the reason Kratos may have actually yielded to the idea that the mountain in Midgard was not the destination Faye meant, despite saying seconds earlier "That could not be what she meant", is because immediately after that, Mimir shows the projection of Jotunheim. At that moment, Kratos remembers seeing it from the visions he saw in the light of Alfheim. If you aren't convinced, watch the full scene, and watch the way Kratos draws out Faye's ashes and casts a lingering gaze upon them. It makes me think this isn't just him weighing his options, but that he's recalling what he saw. And remember, the visions he experienced in the light weren't random to him--he was lead to each one by Faye's Ashes.

  • Grady Griffin
    Grady Griffin Před 2 měsíci +27

    What I love about the dragon scene is that kratos could have handled the finisher alone by throwing the axe, but decided to let his son help to make him feel included.

  • Rafael 2105
    Rafael 2105 Před 11 měsíci +24

    one of my fav production details is that when they were casting Kratos. They had several of the actors work with Sunny for a couple of scenes to see who he worked best with. Sunny ended up picking Chris over the others and I'm glad they managed to bounce so well off of each other. It's hard to capture these kinds of chemistries.

  • Red

    Interesting note. Loki being kratos' son in this canon is pretty cool because if you look into the lore of loki, people cant really decide where or when any of his story is from, where HE is from, etc. Point being, him being Kratos' son considering the story of loki makes alot of sense considering kratos isn't from this pantheons story.

    The biggest thing that you need to remember about the giants is that they have their gift of sight. They can literally see the future (or at least portions of it). A great example we see throughout the game is Atreus speaking about his visions.

    At 13:24 another win could’ve been when the prompt “Eitr imbued” appeared as Kratos picked up the axe after the serpent spit it out, foreshadowing the axe’s potential role in killing Thor during ragnarok, as the Eitr poison is consistent with what killed him in the traditional mythology

    one of my favorite things about the 1st Helheim section is that Kratos actually looks remorcfully about k!lling the ogre. Mostly everything that he has had to attacked so far has been creatures that were evil or started the fight. But the ogre was just doing it's job, and Kratos felt bad about k!lling an innocent ogre that didn't pose a threat.

    Surprised you didn't mention when Kratos and Baldur fight on top of the Dragon, and Kratos yells "STAY AWAY FROM MY SON!" Being the ACTUAL first time he refers to him as his son, albeit not to him directly. And also when Baldur says "Snow" right before dying, I'm pretty sure it refers more towards him acknowledging the FEELING of snow on his cheek, rather than Ragnarok.

    Another thing that would have been great for a win counter is at the end of the game, when Atreus and Kratos are going ham on Baldur, the quicktime event is only used when Atreus is attacking, showing us that the story is moving onto Atreus and growing as a character. This also is confirmed when Kratos and Atreus are in Jotunheim and they see the Prophecy laid out by Faye, Atreus says "This is our story." And Kratos says "No. This is your story." It all really ties well

I think anyone would be furious at the person who cursed you to that hell mentioning those particular words to you, they are also justifying their cruel actions, and they are lying to you by saying that their torment can't ever be reversed. She drove her son crazy, and refused to take responsibility for that.

You get into the game as soon as you press play, and every time you restart your game it's always like it's your first time playing it. Honestly in my opiniuon, one of the best openings to a game ever. The transition from the old, wreckless, rage-filled Kratos to the wise, expirienced Kratos that we have now. And the music too, I listen to this so much. 10/10 game.

    I came across this channel a couple days ago and this video popped up. Watched it all and I will admit I cried. This game came out in a very turbulent time with me and my father. Just as Atreus says, “I don’t know him and he doesn’t know me.” I spent 20 years like that. And looking back on it, GOW, while not everyone’s cup of tea, really resonated with me for the story aspects. My father and I grew distant after many years. It was a story I understood from a father and son standpoint. But my father loved watching me play video games growing up as it brought a smile to my face and watching him play games such as Crash Bandicoot or helping him by giving him further insight was something we bonded over. I remember my dad telling me a couple years ago about this game, “I’ve never seen you be so cheerful about a game. And coming into your room and seeing your smile, it brought me joy, even if it was for just a while.” This game was beautiful, beautiful, beautiful if only for a little while. I’ll never forget my time playing it. I would go through hell to hear that one more time.

  • Атлас {[1]}

    Tbf, for the Baldur part at the end...we can only really judge him from an objective standpoint, one not bound by "human" flaws. We can stand back and proclaim how he should have forgiven Freya cause she was just "parenting", but really? I don't know exactly how long he's been living with that protection/curse, but if it truly cut him off from the ability to feel (pain, emotions, anything, etc), that would be a life of torture. For potentially hundreds if not thousands of years, maybe even longer. And to have it all back? After that long of not feeling anything? And the exact moment he gets the ability to feel back, the target of his now felt built up rage in front of him? You really think he'd have the ability to control his first emotional outburst in who knows how long? I really don't think it'd even be possible for anyone to not do what he did. It's completely understandable, and almost justifiable too.
    I won't go too much into it, but saying "she made the choice every parent would make, completely protection of her child (paraphrasing, ofc)" is the same as saying "the ends justify the means". And, as it's become so common to say, the ends often do not justify the means. Protecting your child from the world via removing their ability to feel anything at all isn't even close to being justifiable. Parental reasoning or not. It's obvious she loves Baldur, yes, but that doesn't make it any better. Again, to say another popular line "some of the greatest atrocities have been committed over love (again, paraphrasing)".
    But, as I said at the start, from an objective standpoint (or close to one), yes, Baldur shouldn't have killed his mother, duh. From a more logical, and reasonable standpoint? He basically has every right to do so. Given, Kratos probably did right by stopping Baldur before he could do so (killing is debatable), but still. Point stands, can judge all you want, but you'll never understand or have to go through what he did.

    In regards to Atreus not asking about Kratos' past, I think he was respecting his father's privacy. Atreus is smart and sharp that there are some things Kratos is not comfortable talking about, so, he lies and says that he didn't see anything. I think it's a sweet gesture coming from him. And eventually, Kratos did open up once he was comfortable about his past.
    Edit: I was watching the final fight scene of Kratos, Atreus, and Baldur and noticed that when Atreus was calling out to Jorm, his eyes were glowing. A cool little detail I caught!

    9:42 there was a saying, one that i find most prevelent in my own life "the man that caused the most pain, knows best how to heal" Kratos has killed upwards of dozens of gods and demi-gods, and the millions of soldiers, he knows better than any man woman or child how it feels to deal with death
    his gentle demeanor is one that almost everyone with a history has, people that have killed in cold blood, or in self defense know best how to handle these emotions, and often have the most gentle touch with those close to them

I didn’t know Fey was short for Lainey though but when Baldr got the arrow in his hand I figured Atreus was either Loki or Hodr, and since he isn’t blind the answer was obvious.

    Atreus's sudden turn sounds like it came out of nowhere until you remember that he drank lemnos wine not too long ago. He's drunk which is dulling his usual sense of kindness. What drives this point further is when Atreus sees a vision of himself in Hel killing Modi and says "that isn't me", classic case of not remembering what you did while under the influence.
    There's also the fact he realized he's a god and is getting a power rush over it. Any preteen kid getting a sense of power will act on it.
