But its not, he's not portrayed very different at all, he looks like a classic picture you'd see of Zeus in a school text book, regardless of what version he's based on. If it was people I know wouldn't see him, and go oh okay read about him in school.. not everybody has played god of war..

What's sad is we've had this conversation before. It was explained to you then, and it was explained to you now.

It doesn't matter if Zeus originated from Greek Mythology. We're not using Greek Mythos Zeus, we're using God of War Zeus. It's literally that simple.

It's not that simple. There's no significant difference in the Zeus. You could say they used the my little pony version of Zeus, it doesn't matter because he looks like the original version Zeus, and he acts like the original version of Zeus. There is nothing in PSABR that can clearly draw the line between what version of Zeus this is, unless you play his arcade mode where he talks about kratos, but even then. Hes still the god of lightning. My point is, if I never played god of war, how the hell am I supposed to know this is the god of war version of Zeus? His name is just Zeus and hes still the same exact character that he has been in so many stories...
This game does the same thing with the final.boss, how is somebody who doesn't know who the polygon man is, supposed to just know that's who he is? It doesn't say anywhere Polygon Man fight, just like it doesn't say God of War's Zeus, it just days Zeus.

No it really is that simple. If someone didn't know that was the GoW Zeus, someone would explain to them that it was the GoW Zeus.

Case closed.

They'd say, well the GoW Zeus played an integral part in the GoW series.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Why would anime characters be in this game??? it doesn't make any sense. This game is for "Playstation" characters, as in the title.

It's not happening.

That is all

It is literally the same Zeus from GoW. If you didn't know he was from GoW, then you would have researched why he was in the game and immediately found out. I'm sure it explains in his profile. Your excuse that some people havent played GoW is flawed. That's like saying that I didn't know what game Sir Dan was from so I don't think he should be in. Your analogy that Zeus is from greek mythology is wrong. There is no Greek mythology in the PS universe. There's only the games. Zeus comes from GoW which happens to be based on our greek mythology. Stop trolling.

So the people that are saying "we are not using Greek Mytho Zeus, We are using Gow Zeus." Same applys to we are not using ANIME (goku naruto luffy) We are using Video game (goku Naruto Luffy). People STILLLLLLLL dont get that Anime has had such a HUGE success in Playstation sales especiallly in japan where it is sold the most.  With over 300 anime titles in exisitence i think that we deserve 1 anime character. Take away all the anime games since start of PS1 and give them all to microsoft and you will see that playstation wouldnt be as popular as it is now. So basically stop being ignorant to the idea of an anime character.
