Sorry that you friendship with Kurse of Kings seems to have waned. You two had interesting discussions, or I thought you found them interesting. He certainly liked talking with you.

Don't worry about it. Instead of the usual chapter I did review what I had about Amicitia's journey when I had to leave at the last weekend.

Maud Pie, "Get what's coming to Me? You really think this is Alicorn Of War? . . .  Yes I erased my first born child, erased my eldest son. My Husband has never forgiven Me for that, nor would I ever expect Him to. Was my child evil? If evil is defined as 'selfish', then anything but. If there could be such a thing as 'too good' (which is a contradiction since once something becomes 'too much' good, it ceases to BE good), then it would be my son. He wanted everything you do. All of you. 'Give them what they deserve.' And he would have torn creation to shreds to accomplish it. Yes he was good, 'too good' if such a thing could be. He and Morning Star were truly opposite ends of the spectrum, his  burning desert of salt to the frozen wasteland of Morning Star. All the universe would have been reduced to ruin, in the name of his justice. And can never return. Regret? Concepts cannot regret.Even we can't change that law. He was a different hero, in the wrong kind of story."

I agree with this statement. If a person with the power to ruin the entire universe makes it very clear that he WANTS to ruin the entire universe and leave it struck in eternal stagnation (even if he is following his ideal and is just unable to see what it will TRULY bring for the mortals) then it is very reasonable to take him down. After all gods are supposed to make the choices nobody else should be forced to make to ensure the stability of the entire universe. This is simply bigger then personal feelings.

By the way I thought through most of God of War II that Zeus was MORE likeable then Kratos who was basically acting like a dictator with godly powers in the beginning when he and the Spartans drowned the entire world in war. When Zeus was revealed to have killed all Spartans afterwards it almost felt like the writers had realized that Zeus wasn't quite evil enough compared to Kratos so he had to go Godzilla on their civilisation. Even then it was nothing that Kratos himself wouldn't had done himself as he has just done the same in the intro...

I think the only way Kratos could have gained any sympathy from me (besides ending the story after part one which had a decent if tragic ending nicely mirroring Greek Tragedy) would have been if the twist to the final boss was that Kratos does NOT want to kill Zeus any longer because he has realized that the god only got corrupted because of Kratos' actions and both have more in common then they want to admit. Then the good ending could revolve around removing this taint. Maybe with the twist that Zeus actually becomes a better person and god afterwards and actually becomes known as the god of more modern religions.

Thanks.

God of War is one of these frustrating example where you can see the potential for really great storytelling when the death of a god actually causes major damage to the world. Gods actually matter for the existence of the world.

There was the potential to tell a good redemption story when Kratos could come to the realisation what his revenge has costed the entire world. Instead the ending imidiated shots its own cliche message about hope in the foot by following it up with brutal murder done in first person.
