PSLS investigates what Kratos needs to achieve throughout his time in Norse Mythology to rise up to a character as fleshed out as Nathan Drake.
kratos needs to be more like himself as he discovers himself, not anyone else. Nathan and kratos are world wide icons in big part due to their differences.
i think it is the other way around. Nathan should learn from the big boy Kratos and change the recipe. Uncharted is a great series, needs change more than ever and the U4 DLC really showed this need. Exact same movements as Nathan no matter if it's Chloe or the other girl (forgot her name). They climb same way at the same speed it just felt like a skin for Nathan.
idk about world wide icons....
They are, sales speak for themselves....
World wide icon is like Mario. Kratos and Nathan are not WORLD WIDE icons.
"Nathan and kratos are world wide icons" Western Icons. God of War and Uncharted isn't big in Japan nor are those two characters are icons in Japan. So saying Western Icon is more fitting. If you disagree this then you don't understand what popular, or a icon is in Japan.
Well, what about Europe?
@b163o1 When I say Western I am also talking about Europe.
well, what about the middle east?
If you were to go outside and ask a random person who Kratos or Nathan Drake were they probably would have no idea. Ask a random person who super mario is and 100% of the time they would know
Show people a picture of nathan drake and see how many can guess who it is.
I reckon almost all gamers.
Yeah I don’t know about world wide icons... like, they’re known in the gaming community, but show a picture of either Nathan Drake or Kratos to random non-gamers and they’ll have no idea who they are.
IMO Nathan Drake is below Kratos, if anything they are equal.. I cant personally pick a favorite from the 2. Another thing i wanna add is... Are Kratos and Nathan Drake in the same bloodline? GOW makes me feel so much like the universes are in the same space, and maybe even TLOU. GOW the past, Uncharted the present, TLOU the future......Horizon the far future?
Are you high? Because that's some Trump level reaching.
He saying you probably fell on your head a couple of times
That is a huge NO.
Just a thought.. People take stuff too seriously lol.
Ummm...say what? That's like saying....WAIT. You might be onto something. Albus Dumbledore, Darth Vader, and Alice (from the ResidentEvil films are all from the same bloodline. Now how can I work in those blue people from James Cameron's movie "Avatar"? The Na'vi? They're all from the same bloodline as Albus Darth, and Alice. I just know it. Joking aside, no hate towards you, bud. But how did you come up with the idea of Kratos & Drake being of the same bloodline & the whole universes God of War, Uncharted, TLoU & HZD being in the same space? Lol.
Play GOW and tell me Atreus doesnt seem a bit like Drake.. Tell me the games arent becoming too similar. It was just a thought, but PS4 fanboys do get a bit too defensive during these times.
I’d say he’s closer to Damian Wayne than Drake. Drake was never the “sir yes sir” type
I have no idea where the ending of this trilogy with Kratos will lead us....but my guess is Kratos will be saving the realm from Ragnorok... He'll be more of the hero than the anti-hero.
No, he is not hero. And he will never be. But he will stick anti hero. Even Cory Barlog said that Kratos will never be hero, but he will find small fraction of his humanity.
Kratos IS Ragnarok ;)
That's interesting... but I'm sure Kratos doesn't want to be...
actually kratos dying gonna be what starts the ragnarok, his son gonna kill all the norse gods
More like he will bring about Ragnarök. As one world dies, another is born.
Nothing, he's good, we're good. And one must wonder, is it a worthy comparison? Yes, they are both juggernauts for Sony but that's where it ends. I don't want to play god of war like I want to play Uncharted , otherwise it'd be the same damn game with different skin. I'm all for studios comparing notes on how to push the hardware and refine performance and that's where the collaboration should flourish. It is healthy competition between these 1st party studios who do nothing but congratulate one another when their games are released and find financial success. We are blessed to have diversity in game genres in this gen, let's keep it that way.
Kratos are already is a well developed character. The character started off as a murderous anti-hero,then villain, and now seems to be a changed man in GoW 4. I personally like Kratos more than Nathan Drake. Kratos already is a fleshed out character.
In my opinion Kratos doesn’t need to learn a damn thing from Nathan Drake
Grow hair? Seriously.....this is stupid.
My favorite headline for a article can’t wait for the sequel What master chief have to to to be more like Marcus Fenix /S
we already have a Nathan Drake. let Kratos be himself...
Hair on his head, a shaved beard, and a tan. But good grief, what a retardicle.
Im about 3 hour in. And if anything artreus seems out place more than anyone. He comes off as a modern suburban kid. Its like they didn't even try to make him culturally fit in
Nathan Drake is a tranny boi compared to Kratos.
Jeol, Kratos, Nathan, Cole, Kat, Abnormal Students (Persona) all fits to be icon of PS as exactly how Pikachu, Mario, Link, Fox, Charizard, Donkey....... fits to be icons of Nintendo.
So he's going to start stealing sh!t?!
Kratos doesn’t need to be Nathan Drake; he just needs to keep being Kratos.
What a dumb article. I'm sorry but it is.
Nothing. Kratos is Kratos and Nate is Nate.
Kratos would have his son beat the earth outta nate drake
Kratos actually has a future past his fourth main game unlike Nathan Drake. He don’t gotta learn shit from anybody
They are joking, are they? Why would you want Kratos to become ND? Haha Kratos is not ND SSM is not ND CB is not ND.
First of all they shouldn't be the same. Kratos might not even need to be explored fully since having something in mystery helps the game progress.
Nathan Drake well fleshed out? Barely. This character does not have a lot of depth. Sure in 5 games they have given players more but in no way before 3-4 they gave him a childhood, a backstory with a missing brother
but Kratos isnt Nathan Drake....
Stupid article. They're different characters!
