Weekend Debate: Your favourite gaming villain (update)
UPDATE: Wow, a really busy debate this week. Thanks to everyone for taking part – it was a fun discussion. The following five posters walk away with a 12 month PlayStation Plus sub for their efforts: Telik, came1w, ryannumber3gamer, GothPunk and Chrome-Hazard. Congratulations – your prize will be delivered as a PM to your ID on the official PlayStation forums.
ORIGINAL: I think I might have mentioned last week that I was struggling with the final boss encounter in Hotline Miami. I finally cracked it, and I’m sure the game will sit in my end of year top 10. One thing that really stood out was the pervasive nastiness of its villains (and its hero, for that matter ;)). It truly features some of the least pleasant folk I’ve ever encountered in a video game.
So, your topic for this week: Tell me your pick for the most villainous villain you’ve ever come across in a game, and qualify his/her/its awfulness.
The top five most entertaining responses, as picked by our panel of judges, walk away with a 12 month PlayStation Plus subscription. Bear in mind existing PS Plus members can stack this on top of their existing subscription. Best of luck!
One more thing. I’m taking advantage of the pre-Gamescom lull to take my summer holiday from mid-next week, so Weekend Debate will likely be on hiatus for the next two Fridays. We’ll pick things up again in early August. Fear not, all other PS Blog activity will continue as normal!
