Fatherhood in games
Never would’ve ever thought Kratos could become a role-model for fatherhood… but here we are. Playing God of War for the PS4 definitely has its fatherhood moments, and it’s refreshing to see the character evolve over the years. Maybe it’s because people that have grown up with Kratos over the years and now are in that phase of getting married, owning a house and having kids.
The stakes are quite different when you have a responsibility like that, and this particular person’s story has taken elements from the game and applied it to raising his nephews. Games as art. Games as parenting inspiration.
