Quote: God of War


“There’s nowhere you can hide, Spartan.


Put as much distance between you and the truth as you want, it changes nothing.maxresdefault

Pretend to be everything you are not:




gow kratos murdered wife



But there is one unavoidable truth you will never escape: You cannot change.


You will always be a monster.”


“I know. But I am your monster no longer.”



This moment made me shiver. God of War 4 has easily some of the most hard-hitting moments in a game that I have played in a long time. And with his outstanding character development across the series, specifically in the most recent game, he stands to be one of my favourite heroes/anti-heroes of all time. Because he has changed. And while he recognizes that he cannot alter himself fully, the change from mindless killing machine to a father is so beautifully shown, especially within the exchange between him and Athena.
