JohnTunoku • I"m mostly on Abby's side here, even if I don't fully understand the Valkyrie point. Freya's turn, even if it was rooted in mythology to some extent, felt very weird and hamfisted and undermined the character in a big way. I didn't really feel the lack of women characters as much, but that's because, to me, it felt like a game with a purposefully sparse cast. Most characters outside Kratos and Boy (the overwhelming focus of the game) were very tertiary, I could see more female characters in the sequel. Felt like more a consequence of the part of mythology they wanted to engage with at the time then anything else.
