About Video Game Sophistry:
Video Game Sophistry is an opportunity to celebrate the creators and the artistry found in Video Games. I believe that Games are the most effective medium from experiencing another world, and another way to live. Expect to see a series of videos showcasing the narratives hidden in every game, interviews with game developers, along with our bench mark weekly podcast, Dialogue Wheel.

Andy Borkowski started this program nearly 10 years ago and, in that time, it has changed from a simple YouTube show, to a radio show, a tv show and now once again a YouTube destination. Welcome to VGS.

God of War - Kratos Fighting "The Stranger"

    Who do you think "The Stranger" really is?


    Damn kratos hit him so hard it went into an ad

  • IFT77

    Kratos might be bald, but “the stranger” is Baldur.

  • #FF0000AnubisFace

    even Baldur is a man of politeness, knocking the door first before started fighting

  • Nomad

    2:15 SPOILER:Its later revealed that Faye is a giant and that Baldur was looking for her and not Kratos. I just realized that when Baldur said those things to Kratos it's because he thought Kratos was a giant that was long ways away from home (Jötunheimr the home of the giants). Fucking excellent game and dialog.

  • sarttee

    this is like watching a DBZ episode.

  • em negrido

    nobody: baldur : I FEEL NOTHING

  • The Unholy Messiah

    Hard to believe it's been over a year since this amazing game was released.

  • Wyatt Beightel

    A visual representation of me dealing with the Mormons that come to my house

  • xmy254

    This is how you show 2 characters with superhuman strength fighting


    3:38 Kratos: I warned youRight when Kratos hits himIndeed advertisement playsMe: LoL daaaaaaamn

  • Chris

    Teacher: alright class, what's the answer to question one?Kratos: I do not know

  • AoKAY00

    The entire Baldur intro was just perfect, especially when you realize in context who Baldur was looking for. It wasn't Kratos, it was Laufey*

  • Flavio

    kratos using his jedi mind tricks to persuade the stranger...Kratos: "You do not want this fight." *stares intensivelly.Stranger: "Listen here you lil shit."Me: "I do not want this fight." *turns back and goes home... XD

  • Sammy Wammy

    Wow, i didnt expect connor mcgregor to fight kratos

  • Đạt

    Baldur: I FEEL NOTHINGKratos: break his neckBaldur: FEEL NOTHING

  • Thibaaan Thibaaan

    This stranger is so respectable, he knock the door before fighting

  • Jared Cross

    "Leave. My. Home." You'll notice not only does Kratos take slightly longer to say home, but his expression turns away from anger for a brief moment. He had been on the move for years, going on a constant killing spree in his quest for revenge, and since meeting his new wife and the birth of his son, he finally found a place to call home where he can rest.

  • Jampolo

    Thene's nothing scarier than the thought of someone being able to match Kratos blow for blow

  • Ranadeep Majumdar

    Kratos getting flung around by a guy that looks like a celtic hobo. Ive really seen everything

  • Klorgmak The Smasher

    Dude's been watching way too many Athlean-X videos.


    Am I the only one that fought this guy for 45 mins?

  • Ghost

    Kratos just dabbed on them haters 4:00 😂🤣

  • That’s Fine

    Am I the only one who actually forgot to use the axe and just punched him the whole way?

  • Kys

    10:37: how I feel like I’m going to do my exams 10:42: Exams

  • Elmin Legend

    The first fight with Baldur reminded me so much of Man of Steel, the fight between Clark and Zod. And both ended with a necksnap which is a cool coincidence. Truly, a fight between gods

  • Petrichor screen

    Summary of this sceneViking-looking mofo shows up at the door, and starts talking smack.Kratos: Be gone whelp.Viking turns out to be an empowered Entity named, Baldur.Anime fight scene ensues.

  • Shane G

    seven foot tall Kratos comes walking out Baldur - "I thought that you'd be bigger"

  • Matthias Kelly

    I want a before and after photo of that forest.

  • Acid Hoff

    "I feel nothing" ...Dude have you seen the design of Sonic? ...Now tell me you feel nothing.

  • Eulides Gonzalez

    I hope in the next game kratos some how becomes younger again and gets back his ultimate weapon back THE DOUBLE JUMP

  • truthfilter

    why is kratos Godlike and beastly but his son is like a whiny american kid ?

  • Christopher Adams

    The graphics in this game and the seamless transition from game play to cinema is top notch. Just imagine what the next generation console would do.

  • Nannam Sriploy

    Kratos vs Conor McGregor

  • LunkovichTromofski

    Stranger: "You can't hurt me!"Kratos: "Observe.."

  • Keon Fernandes

    Best way to play this fight is no Axe.

  • UltraGamerHere

    Kratos: You do not want this fight.Guy who plays the game: Am I a joke to you?

  • Reviathan

    15:00 Kratos Khabib vs Connor McGreggor XD

  • The NegroNinja

    I like how this scene illustrates how Kratos is a better man. He even helped The Stranger up after he knocked him down. He even felt bad after doing it.

  • Joshua Osorio


  • Maciej Tomaszewicz

    I haven't played the game but this is just pure awesomeness 😀

  • Black Rose Productions

    In norse mythology none of the gods are "evil" at all. They were protectors of mankind and nice to humanity(and most giants too). Baldur is suppose to be the god of all that's good...kind of sad to see him this way

  • WarriorBoltz

    7:58 jesus christ you went ham on him

  • Darshaun Ridgeway

    Kratos: You don’t want no smoke....Baldur: Oh. I believe I do....

  • sarttee

    God of War: Dragon Ball Z

  • TheKing Gamer

    This Is the game that you play again and again you Will Never Get Bored!

  • khm8910

    You know, through that whole debacle, the stranger never actually mentioned what he wanted to know.

  • PapiDarko

    BEST super hero fight in a non super hero game lol

  • AcmeBox

    Who would win:The mortal who traded his soul and murdered every god in his culture so hard that he became a god himself while cheating death multiple times in doing soor one cold boi

  • Donquixote Doflamingo

    Damn after watching this fight. I realized Superman fighting kryptonian looks cute.

  • Amiris sheep

    This game has such a good way of showing the character's strength. I love it.

  • Waris Shah Baba

    Balder is a flipping an amazing voice actor. Doing this without prior knowledge was on the most memorable gaming experiences I've ever had.


    I’m not gonna lie, this scene is what really reminded me of how Kratos was still a god of power, the end fight doesn’t seem just as mythical as this where two heavy weights are just going at it with no success on either side.

  • Mohd mohd

    14:50 conor struggle to escape from khabib choke

  • Kaden Goldman

    The stranger: “Out of all of my opponents I have faced I hoped you would make me feel something, but no you can....”His neck: Does like the Titanic and snaps in half

  • fadzil adha

    Baldur actual name is Connor McGregor

  • king zayd

    Kratos hit him into a shaving ad to show him he is the only baldy


    that moment when you dont know that you are facing a man who has killed every god from another mythology and would do so again to yours if he felt like it

  • Tom Swift

    I see Conor McGregor’ got some more tattoos...

  • Mateo David Gutierrez Gonzalez

    Nobody:Baldur:GERMAN SUPLEX*

  • Adrian Bosquez

    Kratos is the chuck Norris of games

  • Gregory Charlestin

    8:40 to 8:50 is the greatest combo I've ever seen him do.

  • Wingman 7th

    beating someone for 18 minutes but ending it by breaking his neck is like trying to build a successful business for 5 years but ending up winning the lottery

  • Moth Nigga

    11:21 After a 1 Night stand

  • Supreem Court

    9:57 the part where every player knew this game was gonna be good

  • Malik Roman

    You should've listened to Kratos the first time

  • Saif B.

    “Tell me what I want to know”“If you’d have given me what I wanted...”At no point tells him what he wants to know

  • Super Star Luigi

    Well to be fair to Kratos Baldur didn't say what he wanted to know.So really Kratos didn't jack shit what Baldur wanted.This whole fight started because Baldur wasn't clear and just assumed Kratos had the answers to something he didn't know about.

  • Aaron Schmidt

    can we please just get a god of war movie already !

  • Corbjira TheKing

    Baldur: “Pointless”Kratos Smacks him into his house with a tree
