There's so much to talk about with God of War, but we wanted to give everyone a chance to play the game. Austin and I beat it a few weeks ago, and finally have enough distance to start processing what the game has to say about toxic masculinity, fatherhood, the voice and agency of women in God of War games (and distinct lack therof), why so many men were able to find themselves in a person like Kratos, and more. This spoils everything in the game, so if you haven't beaten God of War, be warned.
