Quote: God of War

 

“There’s nowhere you can hide, Spartan.

God-of-War-Kratos-1

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

Pretend to be everything you are not:

teacher,

god-of-war-hands-on-preview-19016-800x450-c

husband,

gow kratos murdered wife

father.

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.
