I like Dante better, but I think Kratos has the upper hand.
Posted by Romination

Kratos wins just because 1) he's a god and 2) he's a dick. Even if he died, he'd come back from hell with bigger weapons and kill Dante eventually.

Kratos is actually fairly smart... he was the captain of the Spartan army... His anger is also sort of justified. What gives Dante the balls to travel down to hell and suddenly start ripping fools up. I never understood how a regular human could rape death.

@Frohman: I feel ya, but it was all about the setting.
 
I'm torn between my understanding of people who were upset about the bastardization of a classic piece of literature and my understanding of a developer thinking "holy shit this would make a sweet videogame world". :)
 
(...and like I said, I haven't even played it)

When I read the title I thought you meant the actual poet. 
 
I am now both disappointed because this is not that case, but also because you made me remember that Dante's Inferno is a game.

The point? Videogame playing :)  As for the topic, I don't really know or care who wins. Kratos is kinda lame and I haven't even played DI (tho I almost bought it on the weekend for 20 bucks) "
I mean, of the stories and characters. It's hard to take such a well thought-out and deep book and get rid of everything other than the names of things and having it set in this general idea of hell, bu they managed to do it.

I agree wholeheartedly.
 
I still can't get over the fact THAT is what they made of the Divine Comedy. Such a powerful book containing most of Dante's philosophies, and they make it into some crappy hack and slash. What was the point of any of the game?

Using the part of my brain marked "Sensemakery" and not "Red hot fanboy rage", it still very clear that Kratos would win and it wouldn't even be a fight.

Kratos easily.

I say Kratos. If you played the God of War trilogy you will know why. Every time he died he comes back. He dies near the end of GOW 1, at the beginning of GOW 2 and also in the beginning of 3.

Dante's a poet and has another dead poet on his side as well as the power of god.
Kratos has two swords and a whole lotta rage.

The pen is mightier than the sword.

Dante would get destroyed by Kratos.

Dante probably has some logical thought processes unlike Kratos who is just very, very angry. Kratos' meatheaded brain wouldn't be able to handle it.

In a contest of who has the worst anger management issues, maybe.
Posted by jonnyboy

Dante would get a flaming sword planted firmly between his dyed black side-parting.
