One of the antagonists anticipated and awaited for more than 4 years finally makes his appearance in God of War: Ragnarök. And it is unanimous with the fans. The reason ? Way too badass!

God of War: Ragnarök has finally arrived to let you off steam all weekend! The 9 kingdoms to explore, the arrival of Ragnarök... We knew a lot of things about what awaited us since the end of the last opus. Including our meeting with a certain... Thor .

SPOILERS

Beware of minor spoilers in this article! If you want to know nothing of the story and enjoy a 100% fresh experience, stop now.

And he's clearly not happy

At the same time he has his reasons. Since the murder of his two sons Modi and Magni in God of War, Thor, son of Odin and God of lightning, has returned to take revenge on Kratos. Then follows a very long and epic fight from which comes the extract below .

We can see Thor violently hitting Kratos with his famous hammer, Mjölnir, until a QTE where the player must press a key quickly. And there, boom, Thor finishes Kratos, and game over.. Except that it was planned in the scenario! Thor then resurrects Kratos like a doctor with a defibrillator and decides he won't be done with him until he sees "the real Kratos" .

An extremely badass and pleasant scene the first time you see it, which can remind you of some other mythical games that had fun playing with the death of the main character.

A concept that always hits the mark

Fake game over in video games, done so well, always brings a smile. We can think of other games that in the past had fun playing with the death of the protagonist.

In Metal Gear Solid 3 for example, you could play with the game over screen with the Fake Death Pill , feigning death but still having access to the item menu during this time.

Kojima being a big fan of the concept, it can also be found in Metal Gear Solid 4 , where during combat, if you die, the game over screen will prompt you to click the "Exist" button, having replaced "Exit".

Last example, the extremely underrated Eternal Darkness on GameCube, where the game played perpetually with our sanity, until feigning fake blue screens and console crashes at the heart of the scenario...

Otherwise we can also mention the whole Dark Souls saga in which the developers have fun with our death throughout the game!

God of War: Ragnarök seems to be appealing to many gamers at the moment, and is fighting its way to a new Game of the Year 2022 title after already winning it 4 years ago for God of War (2018).
