Weekend Debate: Your favourite gaming villain (update)

The Weekend Debate

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!

It’s clearly GLadOS

It’s clearly GLaDOS.

Wakes you up in an abandoned facility, makes you complete tests throughout the facility including dodging lasers, turrets, etc…. then when she is done with you tricks you with cake and tries to burn you to death.

My vote goes to Dr. Nefarious from the Ratchet & Clank games. Especialy in Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack In Time. The robot is evil as hell, and wants to turn back time. No matter what happens to the universe. He’s also very funny and has a lot of anger, a lot. Because of this he always shouts, at everyone.

Has to be Lazarevic from Uncharted 2, one of the toughest bosses to fight when on hard and crushing, him spamming them grenades and running after you was just horrible! beat him in the end! and hes badass in the game shows no mercy!

Kefka from FF VI

The guy seems like any old maniac you get in games. The typical villain. Except he actually goes ahead and manages to destroy the world. Most games have you stop the guy before he actually manages to do it but this psycho did it. He’s a creepy psychotic clown and is definitely my number one villain

Liquid Snake (Metal Gear Solid)

He possesses a diabolical accent (British of course) and not only does he relentlessly attack you in a Hind-D gunship, but he lures you throughout the game being disguised as an ally on your codec/radio – only to do his bidding and activate a walking battle tank! (oh, spoilers lol)

The best villain ever has to be Doctor Neo Cortex from Crash Bandicoot. I hated that guy!

9

Most awful villain for me was Vaas (Far Cry 3), and also it featured on e of the best opening scene in the gaming industry. He was so crazy awful I wanted to get strangle him from my TV.
“Did I ever tell you the meaning of insanity?” soon became a hit and the rest is history.

Final Fantasy 7 – sephiroth all great evil characters have been based on him :).

11

Aww man, my favourite villain is really easy! When I come against a villain I want him to be ruthless, look impressive – maybe be a steroid freak, or strange mutation, and I want his vocabulary to be loaded with cheesy one liners.

You’d be forgiven for thinking I was describing any one of 20+ Bond villains.

My favourite is Jack Krauser, from Resident Evil 4. (who also made an appearance as a good guy in the vastly under-rated Resident Evil Chronicles set).

He is incredibly strong, fast, and witty. His final battle is tense, and all his mini-battles before that are quite difficult too. He also has a very indepth back story that continues to confuse as we see how/why he turned to “the dark side”.

Oh… And he has a super cool mutation!

Mike Tyson from Punchout! Damn, he was hard to kill….

Wheatley (Portal 2)

At the start of the game you love him, he’s funny and has great character and even when he becomes evil you love him, the sheer amount of stupid ways he tries to kill you, you even feel bad for defeating him in the end. Although glados is a great villain i think Wheatley is even better.

14

FF7 is the first Final Fantasy I’ve ever played…. I’m going with Sephiroth as my alltime fav/hated villian.

Sephiroth, a character you chase after so long, Your actions being manipulated by him, killing a precious friend of yours, pretty much wanting to destroy everything in his warped ways of thinking. A tru;y epic and unfogettable boss in every sense of the word.

Albert Wesker.

He is got to be one of the beloved villains in video games ( from what I saw )
This guy almost appeared in all RE games and movies.

I bet we will see him in the next RE game :)

So Albert Wesker is my choice.

I have to go all the way back to the good old psone days, when Shepiroth killed Aries and thus my childhood. That man is the villian to beat, and in one swift move let you know he meant business.

And he didn’t stop by tearing our hearts out, he went on to attempt to destroy the world, attempted to kill Cloud many a time. I will hate that man till my dieing breathe.
Sepiroth the villian of my childhood.

17

This is easy,

Without any doubt it’s MGS3’s The Boss, I cried uglier than my lil bro when I fought her. The Boss battle is more of an emotional fight than it is a physical, that’s why it was memorable and different. That fight it the reason why I bought MGS: Peace Walker on PSP, as soon as I smelled the possibility of her not being dead, I immediately went and grabbed the game.

The guilt still haunts me… I’m sorry, but you left me no choice.

Sincerely,

Big Boss

This may seem like a strange one but let me explain.
Sly 2 Spoiler Alert*
For me I would have to say Neyla from Sly 2: Band of Thieves. She had no real motives, she wasn’t working for anybody in the end, it was all for her own evil purposes. It is even more shocking as she seemed like she was the more down to earth character and laid back compared to Carmelita. But then she turns on you and you see her true side. Then its just backstabbing throughout the rest of the game for her until she gets what she wants.

The bit at the very end when she blended with Clockwerk and became Clock-La, this is the part I still can’t get over today. Even before she dies she screams something about always hunting Sly no matter where he is or something around those lines. Still can’t get over how unexpectedly evil she was.

19

David, the leader of the cannibals from “The Last of Us”.

Allthough he seems friendly when u first meet him, he eats people for breakfast literaly and doesn’t mind killing a child.

Visari from Killzone. His chilling speeches are enough to cement him as a pretty terrifying video game villain. Radec would be a close second, just for how difficult he is to beat at the end of Killzone 2…

Has to be Sorceress Ultimecia from FFVIII. I mean come on – she breaks down time, compresses it to make the world uninhabitable, and that’s not even brushing the surface. She possesses good sorceresses’ bodies and forces them to her will -she turns Edea Kramer into the most hated woman in the world and uses Rinoa’s body before hurling her into space! She is a NASTY piece of work. Also her theme is ‘Liberi Fatali’ which is some of the most epic music in all Final Fantasy :)

22

Easy…That “dude” on screen with “no face” in Xcom…Always bi*ching about my progress, sending my men on suicide missions from his safehouse and the worst part was, that almost my every game he got mindhacked and basically told me i am a moron… I think he was working with the alines all along anyway…

Heihachi Mishima from the Tekken series. Why? Well, he is a power hungry terrorist who threw his son into a volcano and then used his son and grandson to create an “ultimate life form”.

24

My (un)favourite gaming villain is “corrupted save data”. Whenever he said “game over”, it really was over ;)

we have seen plenty of anti-heroes in games who do horrible things for good reasons, but I felt Joel in the Last of Us was the first time I have played as one in a game.

SPOILERS FOR THE LAST OF US ENDING ! ! !
You have been warned.

First off Joel saves Ellie in the end of the game which may seem like the aforementioned anti-hero situation. but the reality is Ellie would have probably chose to sacrifice herself to save humanity. So not only did he stop humanity from getting a potential cure. He also killed a ton of (relatively) innocent fireflies to get to her and killed the woman that she has known her whole life. And to top it all off he lied to her about it when she obviously had it all figured out.

26

SHODAN, from System Shock 2. So many people keep praising GLaDOS, but SHODAN is basically what she’s based on. An omnipresent, diabolical villain. And scary as well. The first time I played through the game, the reveal made me stop for a day.

Besides, SHODAN taunted you, challenged you… by the end, you really wanted that thing DEAD.

So yeah: SHODAN. No contest.

Not a classic villain in the sense of the word but I’m going for Big Daddy. It’s the instant transformation from a creature just plodding about slowly after his young companion to raging beast who suddenly finds a surprising speed burst and is intent on killing me as quickly as possible that does it for me. There is no tactical thinking going on in his head, you can almost hear him shout DESTROY as he turns on you and attacks with all he has.

They don’t even need to do anything, just their presence is enough to make me nervous.

28

Warning right off the bat, this post has Last of Us spoilers. You have been warned.

I am going against the grain and going to say Joel is my favourite villain in gaming. It is very clever how Naughty Dog technically make you play the bad guy. Think about it in Pittsburgh we find out Joel has been on both sides of a Hunter attack showing he has, like the Hunter groups, killed to obtain other people’s supplies. Don’t get me wrong he would of had his reasons as he was understandably not the same since his daughter died, even more so that she was killed by the Military that Hunter groups later rose against.

Then at the end of the game the Fireflies are going to remove the brain of Ellie to develop a cure from her mutated cordyceps cells. However due to the very fatherly bond Joel has developed with her during their journey he decides to basically forsake the future of humanity to save one life.

Part 2 next

Liquid Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 4 has to be my favourite gaming villian for multiple reasons. His motives are justified being that he wants to destroy the patriots for a free world. His boss fights are pure epic, with the fight on top of Outer Heaven has to be my favourite boss fight in gaming. And let’s not forget the best part of Ocelot, his voice actor. His Voice actor’s skills rivals that of David Hayter. That is why Liquid Ocelot is my favourite gaming villian.

Again WARNING The Last of Us spoilers.

Part 2

The final deceitful act Joel then commits is when he lies to Ellie saying that the Fireflies have stopped looking for a cure. The entire portrayal of Joel during this masterpiece of a game is astounding as to some like me he can easily be seen as villainous while to others he can be seen as a hero. This in turn shows that everyone’s perception to details can differ. Definitely an enjoyable experience from start to finish.

I am going to go with the Joker form the recent Batman games. He appears completely crazy on the outside but is secretly always in complete control of the situation. He is manipulative and his character and insanity really comes across with every movement and little speech that he makes, while weaving comedy into everything he does ( as his name implies )

His motives are not easy to understand and he is unpredictable. His shear deadliness which comes out unexpectedly combined with the way he looks makes him extremely unsettling.

On top of that even when he loses he wins, *SPOILERS* his death at the end of Arkham city clearly really gets to batman. He is one of the best villains i have come across in a game.

33

Sephirot of course! Bad till the end (and come back too).

34

I wish I could edit posts, but ah well:

More SHODAN goodness: “You move like an insect. You think like an insect. You are an insect. There is another… who can serve my purpose. Take care not to fall too far out of my favor. Patience is not characteristic of a Goddess.”

And the ever famous reveal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOFZ5fv_pb8

This as addition to my previous post.

35

Dormin in Shadow of the colossus

The sneaky son of a biscuit has you running a massive (ha ha get it ;D) errand for him and manipulates you to killing the Colossi with the promise of bringing your love back to life. Not only does he break this promise, he turn you into a baby! If that’s not evil I don’t know what is.

Man, who do I pick? Talbot and Marlow from U3 stand out for me, mainly because they’re British and therefore somewhat relatable (everyone knows we Brits are evil). But Dr Nefarious was awesome in his over-the-top silliness and Firelurker from Demon’s Souls was a amazing boss fight.

The one boss that stuck with me though was Sephiroth from FF7. A classic in every sense of the word.

Surely it’s Albert Wesker?!

A man so uncompromisingly evil, he barely has any motivation behind his actions other than for evil’s sake. A tentacle sprouting, always furious, world domineering psychopath, who’s never too rushed to sport a pair of 30-year old aviators. And let’s face it, gaming has never seen a more evil act than his hideous leather jacket/sunglasses combo from Resident Evil 4. Fashion hell.

A man truly evil to the core; it’s got to be Wesker.

Marco Bartoli from Tomb Raider: 2.
I love this guy so much because I have fond memories of him from when I was younger, this is because everything about him “got” to me, leaving me feeling uneasy. For example, his Venitian accent makes him seem mysterious and full of secrets, this is further supported trough his menacing smile, implying only the worst for poor Lara. Moreover, his pseudo-esque garments were fully black apart from the shockingly blatant symbol of his gang – further adding to the mystery, suspenseful nature and terror of this character.

I guess that is just the small part of why I like him so much, the part in which he became a dragon topped off this crazed madman of a villain. Not only did it show how fearless he was, but it also revealed his psychopathic persona, further bringing feelings of unease to the mix. Having to fight that deranged maniac was memorable, but oh so tense!

Not sure if he’s classed as an actual villain but I’m going with “The guy on the radio” from Telltale’s The Walking Dead.

What seemed like a minor choice from the end of episode 2 comes back to bite you in the ass in episode, when you realise that the man who took clementine is the same guy who was the owner of the car full of supplies. Most villains are evil for the sake of being evil, but this guy is different. Through talking to him you learn that talking those supplies shattered his relationship with his family and left him a broken man. This almost makes you sympathise with him. However it gets more interesting.

You realise that when he was talking to clementine on the radio, he has learnt of all the difficult choices you’ve made throughout your travels, for better or worse, and uses these to judge your ability to look after clementine. This comes as a shock as you don’t expect to be judged on your choices in this way. We also find that before the zombie outbreak, he was ju...

We also find that before the zombie outbreak, he was just a normal dad, whose morals turned darker once the apocalypse started. This makes him more “real” and allows us to more easily see his point of view, which is why he’s one of my favourite villains

40

Mine has to be comstock from bioshock infinite, he tries to kill you all the way through the entire game just to find it’s your future self in a twisted little waymade the entire game great then ended with a shocker ending.

41

It’s been a while but if my memory serves me right, it would be Kuja from Final Fantasy IX. This nice guy wants to destroy the world so heroes must prevent that from happening. I remember Kuja being a likable and most sympathetic evil final boss I have encountered so far. It’s an exception to pity the bad guy.

42

My favourite villian is Kefka Palazzo from Final Fantasy 6 BY FAR! It’s ’cause he is as villianous as villians can get!

He posioned Doma’s water just to hear the screams of the dying!
He disturbed the balance of the world and brought it to absolute ruin!
He became a god and proceeded to torment the survivors of the world!
He kills millions and just laughs! And that laugh.. man.. it’s been embedded in my mind since I first heard it.

It’s just a darn shame he’s always in the shadow of Sephiroth from FF7 when it comes to popularity. Sephiroth is nothing but a edgy mama’s boy who only came close to bringing the world to ruin!

My most horrible boss fight in a video game must have been the boss fight in Hitman 2 against Sergei Zavorotko. It took me about 2 hours to kill all of his bodyguards and there must have been about 20 of them. Finally when I had killed them all I didn’t know what to do and I ended up strangling Sergei trough the door of the confessional booth he had hid in which was not the right way to kill him as I was about to notice. When I finally figured out shoot him trough the glass of the confessional booth I was surprised to see a body sliding out of the booth and ready to kill me. I still get goosebumps just thinking about the time I had to fight a dead body in a church!

part 1

MASSIVE dark souls spoiler alert!

my favorite villain is kingseeker frampt! or wait, maybe its darkstalker kaathe? who is the villain in dark souls?

when digging a little into dark souls lore, it becomes clear that there is no ‘good’ guy. bad things in the future are inevitable, no matter which path you choose. frampt tells you that kindling the final fire is the ‘good’ thing to do.
later on you meet kaathe, who tells you that frampt is only trying to trick you and you should become the dark lord yourself and not kindle that fire.

part 2
MASSIVE dark souls spoiler alert!

now, if you kindle the fire, you sacrifice yourself to sustain order. that sounds like the good ending. but is the world really in order? it is ruled by 3 gods, and not in a good way. by kindling the fire, you give these gods power. are they suppressors and just playing you through frampt?
on the other hand, not kindling the fire makes you the dark lord, freeing humanity from the gods, but humanity lives in darkness. and this turns humans into monsters (as seen in the DLC). so is this a good ending?

so who is the villain here? maybe both frampt and kaathe. maybe just one. i cant decide! but whoever of the two it is, he is playing a hell of a game! maybe the villain here is the darkness itself.

46

It has to be Radec, he was so cheap on Elite level…

lost count on how many times I tried to beat him on Elite.

I’ve thought hard about this, and have come up with who I believe is the most evil, villainous villain in all of gamedom. I’ve considered several dozen worthy candidates, but none came close to being as awful as who I believe is the true King of Villains. The Joker? No. Gnasty Gnorc? Not even close. No, the true villain of gaming is…

The player. Yes, it’s true. The player takes control of a character, treating them like nothing more than a puppet, strips away that characters free will, and then forces them to do his or her bidding! This often involves killing hundreds and thousands of people in cold blood, destroying whole nations, stealing, lying and goodness knows how many other shady acts! Often, he or she lets those characters that they control die, or at least go through vast amounts of pain and agony, all for his or her amusement.

No sicker or more disturbed mind exists than the evil puppetmaster named… The Player

And let me tell you that was awful!

Despite being the main char of the game, Kratos ( God of War series) is the most villainous villain I’ve ever come across. Not only does his appearance make an awful impression but also his behaviors turn him into a disgusting person. In order to get revenge against Zeus, he lead a slaughter killing every person he encountered, most of whom were innocent. He also didn’t care about what would happen to the entire world if his revenge was accomplished; he did it at any cost. The reason that I hate the controlled character more than the final boss makes this game unique, though.

Part 1

Dr.Nefarious by far. Not only is he a funny villain but he is shown to be very very evil. Now as we all know Ratchet & Clank is a funny game series. For all its serious moments like the ending of R&C A Crack in Time, it has its funny moments and Dr.Nefarious is no exception. It funny seeing other characters like Lawrence and Courtney Gears work off of Dr.Nefarious. But let’s face it. Just because Dr.Nefarious is funny does not mean it takes away from how evil he is. In order of what he did (spoilers btw) He almost turned the galaxy into robots,kidnapped Clank,Nearly killed Captain Qwark, Almost destroyed the starship phoenix,tricked Ratchet during the final boss battle in R&C 3,kidnapped Clank once again,tried to go back in time to erase Ratchet’s victories,stranded the Zoni when he took over the great clock,killed Clank’s father,tried to kill Ratchet,Clank, and Qwark at once only his ship broke down forcing him to help, and finally he stranded Ratchet,Clank, and Qwark in All...

Thats why i think Nefarious works so much. He is funny, very funny but the comedy of the series does not stop how evil Nefarious is.

ryannumber3gamer 19 July, 2013 @ 17:39
52

Part 2

The thing about it is Nefarious can even be considered a victim. He’s evil because of Qwark who bullied him in high school and caused Nefarious to be turned into a robot. Nefarious in my opinion is the best Playstation villain and one of the best villains of all time due to his comedy,backstory, and how evil he can be despite the comedy of the series.

53

Vaas for sure. His first lines in the game look at me when im talking to you showed he didn’t want any respect or anything. Just to look feel im your eyes and mess you up. Turn you into him. He was incepting you the entire time. His ultimate aim wad to fill up the world with insanity like joker did with chaos. He wanted people to do whatever they wanted. Set their mind free. And everytime he asked you the definition of insanity, he was that much closer to achieving what he really wanted. To turn you inside out. To turn you into him
he was ultimately successful in turning you from a nice city kid into a blood thirsty maniac. After all, you do kill your friends at the end. Cut the throat right off. Vaas lived.

I think my most villainous villain has all the key attributes; a cold, almost robotic persona, relentless aggression, unerring determination and an ominous presence all set to a monotonous soundtrack…

This insidious being is of course a Space Invader!

Rudolf Von Sturmgeist from Medal of Honor: Frontline currently holds the place of “best gaming villain” in my eyes.

I don’t know whether it was his ‘slippery’ tendency (ie: he always narrowly escaped from Jimmy Patterson’s extensive arsenal of lethal weaponry), the way in which he was portrayed (eg: he always had an ‘epic’ musical score accompanying his presence ridden with powerful moments, sad moments and ‘get up and go’ moments), his legion of loyal followers (the half-dozen troop of Nazi guards who stood by his side all the time), his inspiring bravery (when Jimmy confronts him at the end he stays positive until the end; this is a trait I’d fully expect from a villain as he seems hell-bent on bringing down Jimmy Patterson) or his explosive personality (whenever he speaks in the game he does it with a great deal of power, he is the type of guy who could control people with ease – this is commonly seen in great leaders); but whatever it was he comes across to me as one of gaming’...

When these abilities come together a super-villain is formed. Sturmgeist is such a powerful character that I firmly believe he tops infamous villains such as Albert Wesker and David from TLOU. Sturmgeist is pure evil.

It has to be Lechuck from the Monkey Island series. He probably had the dirtiest underpants in gaming history. Besides, you are force to tear them off him to make a cute little voodoo doll.

Officer Tenpenny – GTA San Adreas

A corrupt cop whose hobbies include racketeering, corruption, possession (and use) of narcotics, and sexual assaults, the foul-mouthed officer is a perpetual thorn in CJ’s side throughout the game.
He oozed malevolence and stole every scene he appeared in. For me few villains have ever stirred such strong feelings of contempt and to a lesser extent respect. What’s more he’s not just pure evil – he genuinely believes he is right, and that 50 more of him would have saved Los Santos.

That’s a bit difficult but also easy. There’s a lot of villains (some are just over the top *cough*Senator Armstrong*gough*) but… Doctor Neo Cortex hands down.

Why? Because he’s a complete genius and at the same time a complete failure. He’s able to invent Evolvo-Rays, the Cortex Vortex, a Space Station, an army of mutated animals, lasers, machines, clone glasses guys, he even frees the powerful Uka-Uka… yet he keeps losing to Crash Bandicoot.

Who is his own invention. And classified a failure by himself. Oh, the irony.

At the end of the day I really feel sorry for the guy :P

Polygon Man from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, It was great to see him back also a very underated game i play it al the time on the PS3 and the Vita.
Its also got one of the best line ups of video game characters in one place.

62

Zeus in God of War 3!!!

He is the reason we have God of War 2 and 3. He is the most villainous villain because he keeps regain health and we traveled from Hell to change history and beat him.

Finally you beat him, and there’s a O button button smashing final battle… I keep hit the O button for almost 10 mins… then I checked online discovered we should stop… Orz

63

Oddjob from GoldenEye 007 Multiplayer! He was a character we all hated, someone who brainwashed us into picking him, a ruthless man with no morals or respect who exploited his height killing anyone in sight and earning his evil title.

Eventually we discovered Oddjob’s evil plan, it was too late for some of us but all hope was not lost when a universal rule swept across the planet which was ‘No picking Oddjob’. It was tough at first, near impossible for some but we made it and may Oddjob never rise again!

64

Definitely the Joker from Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City !

He is a true psychopath that is obsessed with trying to kill Batman. He is a crazy clown with a very dark sense of humor that is sometimes a little bit funny, but at the same time also extremely scary and disturbing.

The only thing he wants in his life is managing to capture the Bat, and he doesn’t care how he reaches his goal. If he needs to kill a couple of his henchman in order to hurt Batman, then he will definitely do that.

And if you combine all of the above with the fact that Joker is voiced by the amazing Mark Hamill, well then you have the most intersting and most awesome villain in the history of videogames !

**HEAVY RAIN SPOILERS***

Mine would have to be Scott Shelby from Heavy Rain, the fact that the whole game you are working to find this villain who kills children, and then right at the end you find out that you WERE him – the detective trying to ‘solve’ the case was actually killing off everyone who had found a lead in order to keep himself from being caught.

He is an awful person, and yet at the end you still feel sorry for him because he’s just trying to make sure that these children’s fathers don’t fail them like his did. It’s sad yet disgusting, but one of the best portrayals of a villain (if not the most realistic) that I have seen in a video game to date.

Zoran Lazarevic from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Everything about this character was so dark and negative. From his physical apperance (which was expertly modelled by the creators) – the piercing look, beady eyes, scarred face – right to his prejudicial views and actions toward the world for his own selfish needs, every facet of the character fit the bad guy bill almost perfectly.

Not to mention absolutely fitting voice-overs were provided for the character. His iconic dialogue with Nathan Drake towards the game’s finale where he says “You are no different from me Drake, how many men have you killed today?” and how arrogantly he utters the words “No Compassion, No Mercy!!” even knowing full well that death is staring at him right in the face, laid the final kerbstone in establishing the pitch dark personality of this ultimate villian.

67

The Joker just because the concept for that character is so absurd, the only villain to try to make u laugh/cry before killing u.

Kuja from Final Fantasy IX. That flamboyant, theatrical style adds so much to the atmosphere of the game.. Being threatened by a man wearing a thong is not something one would foresee, but it does happen in Final Fantasy IX! It’s also a very well constructed villain who evolves along the story of the game, seasoned by a ginormous ego and world destroyer power level. Such a good villain could only be complete by one of the best theme song ever, and, in my opinion, the best boss fight theme out of all Final Fantasy games.

72

It would have to be Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII. The guy goes on a rampage and slaughters an entire village just because he thinks their race betrayed his (which, by the way, isn’t even true). After that he tries to become a God by destroying a planet with a meteor and absorbing it’s energy. And after all that, in the final battle with him he destroys the whole freakin’ solar system (without killing the main characters) like it’s nothing.

Oh, and also, the battle with him in Kingdom Hearts II. My God, it has to be the hardest thing I’ve ever done in a video game.

carlaverock8 19 July, 2013 @ 17:58
73

Ares from the God of War series
He tricks you into killing your family, kidnaps your brother and makes you relive these events. Also after you unintentionally fulfil he’s plan after his death. His memory stays with you.

74

its got to be Liquid Ocelot from MGS4, not only is he a man who is technically 2 people in one (already a little creepy) but he then takes over the system controlling everyone, messes with their emotions, and makes them all start firing at eachother with the power of thought. oh, and he kisses you whilst snake is beating the life out of him, FREAK!!

75

I remember playing tomb raider legend when I was younger, and there was this level with Amanda as boss. It took me so much time to finally get through that level, I almost gave up

77

It has to be Molluck the Glukkon from Abe’s Oddysee.
Head off the meat-packing factory, RuptureFarms. He is the pinnacle of evil! Molluck is obsessed with success, even going as far as to nearly wipe out whole species just to see his company thrive and and achieve more wealth.
Molluck decides to use Abe and his Mudokon friends (who work in his factory) in his food products to offset the declining profits.
You feel a real need to save everyone and to put a stop to Molluck. One of my all time favorite games :)

78

For me it definitely has to be Nemesis from well Resident Evil 3 Nemesis. The guy/thing chases you the whole game and every time you see it you will feel so scared and surprised that you will be frightened of it for the rest of the game. And at times when you are forced to fight it well just be prepared or else you will just die.
But at the end when you are finally able to defeat it with the railgun and you feel so relieved that you wont have to see that thing anymore.
Seriously the games subtitle is named after the villain of the game he is just that great.

79

I have to say the most evil villain is Clockwerk from Sly 1&2. He lived for centuries because of his hate for the Cooper family..

80

Hands down, its got to be the Joker from the Batman: Arkham games :-)

WWChesseration 19 July, 2013 @ 18:09
81

The Joker – Arkham series.

This man is pure evil. Not only does he keep terrorising poor Batman, SPOILER ALERT: kills Talia Al Ghül, Batman’s only true love…….until the next time. But most of all, the most unforgivable thing, is how badly he treats Harley Quinn. When you’re mean and rude to a hot chick that fancies the hell out of you, then you sir are a douche!

its got 2 b xemnas from kh2 hate that guy

“Do you feel like a hero yet ?”

Definitely my favorite ”villian” is Martin Walker from Spec Ops: The Line :O

I love the clever twist(s) that took me completely by surprise !
Spec Ops:The Line is also the first game that made me feel so guilty about the things I’ve done….

And then there’s that:

“To kill for yourself is murder. To kill for your government is heroic. To kill for entertainment is harmless.”

84

Without a doubt it has to be Psycho Mantis from Metal Gear Solid. When it comes to the boss battles, the Metal Gear series is in a league of its own. Psycho Mantis is one of the most creative boss battles. As soon as the battle starts he is flinging furniture across the room at you with his mind. Not only that but he was able to make your television look like it lost signal, read your memory card and comment on previous games that you’ve played, and was able to take control of your controller. And this was all on PS1! Remarkably innovative and captivating. Psycho Mantis is the best boss/villain to ever grace my screen and without a doubt the best boss battle I’ve played in any game. Ever. And again: PS1!!

And Spec Ops:the line is also coming next month as free ps+ title !!

So now there is no excuse for not playing this excellent game…
It was my personal GOTY from 2012.

86

Mine is Khan from Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars (PS1).
When he first appeared we didn’t know it was him but he was disguised as a scary clown. He killed some people with a car, a bomb and tried to kill the main character too (Georges Stobbart). Once Khan arrived and held George at gunpoint on a cliff. Later in the game he was disguised as an old woman too ! As a player I never knew when I would face it and what he could do, it was very stressful. Also I will never forget that scary clown costume and the game’s introduction…

Enjoy your summer holidays.

For me it’s an easy choice, Zeus in the God of War series. I think the great thing about Zeus, and I would apply this to many great villains in games, films and books, is that he starts out as a good god/man, particularly in the tale of Kratos, when he spares the newborn Kratos when Hera wanted Kratos to be killed. But like the best villains, Zeus is the architect of his own demise, by having Pandora’s Box made, which when opened begins to corrupt him. We also get to watch his fall from grace across the 3 main games.

When God of War II opens with your betrayal and murder by Zeus, that really began my love for Zeus as a villain. He then proceeds to massacre the people of Sparta, just because they worshiped Kratos… By the time I faced Zeus at the end of God of War III, I really REALLY wanted to take that guy out, due to all the evil things he had done by that point in the series. But I was playing on hard difficulty, so it took me ages to defeat him, which made me hate him even more! ...

I think that the central conflict between Kratos and Zeus is really the making of those games.

PS: Really glad to see so many people say Joel, he would be up there for me too.

Dr. Eggman/Robotnik from the Sonic franchise is one of my favourite villains of all time right next to Bowser. Not only he transforms Sonic’s inhabitants into robotic slaves and sics them Sonic, he also wants to control the entire universe by collecting the Chaos Emeralds. While some of his so called machines are easy to beat, some are just challenging (yes Egg Viper, I’m talking to you) and it so strange on why his boss machines are named Egg then a thing.

Not only that, he also designed a robot based off Sonic called Metal Sonic that tries to kill our blue hedgehog. In Generations (minor spoilers beware!), he even teamed up with his classic self to try and destroy both Sonic’s with the Time Eater. Yup, that’s Baldy McNosehair for you. XD

What about your mum? Mine used to turn the electric off at the fuse box if I didn’t come down for dinner. Back in the days of the mega drive there were no auto saves to fall back on neither. Bloody mums!

REAPER!!!

Oh my god! We have 70+ posts and nobody said a world about Reapers??

Obviously ME1 came to PS3 not so long, but anyway, who played the whole ME Saga will never forget Sovereign from Mass Effect 1.

“We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution. You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.”

Or if just one villain is not enough, what about a massive invasion of reapers in ME3! Awesome! Best game ever!

Vaas from Far Cry 3. Now that guy is insane. lol

The Last of Us: David

Some of the best voice acting I remember. Nolan really made this character come to alive as this creepy man, that instantly seemed off. And yet, I still was a little bit in doubt if he was gonna snap and try to kill Ellie or not. And the way his arc ended was just brilliant. I don’t want to spoil anything, but he was just an overall great character.
Vaas from Far Cry 3 is also a really insane and unreliable character, you never knew where you had him. And that he didn’t have much time in the game just gave him that “Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs” kinda vibe.

saishyam001 19 July, 2013 @ 18:27

There is no doubt in our minds that the enigmatic,psychophatic Clown Prince of Crime The Joker, is the best video game villian.
The Joker is the definition of the scene stealing wicked character who is more interesting than his superhero counterpart.The Joker is the smartest and sickest of all the villians.
A great villian is not one who is wicked,but the one who has depth and matter like The Joker..”Joker does not want Batman to be dead like other villains,But he wants Batman to LIVE in agony!”

ThomasakaDes 19 July, 2013 @ 18:28

Harbinger from Mass Effect.
He’s trying to “harvest” everyone in the whole universe.
Every race.
Also he and Soverign has an awesome voice :D
Harbinger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lj3vBxU8FmU (from 1:18)
Soverign: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVKKWeDCOZs (Soverign’s voice is cooler, but Harbinger is the boss Reaper)
Also, he’s massive.
Also, Mass Effect is my favorite game series.

96

I think, for me, it would have to be those 20+ Metal Gear RAYS on extreme mode. It’s nail bitingly, hair pullingly, head smashingly, eye pokingley, excruciatingly, impossibly arduous. Man, I nearly hurled my Vita to the other side of the house! And I DID smash my PS2 controller. Battling more than 20 humongigantimmensenormous world threateningly nuclear weopans that can, what, walk?! and throw laser beams?! and launch missiles?! and throw homing missiles?! and regenerate?! AND ALL OF THIS WITHOUT ANY HUMAN ASSISSTANCE?!?! Holy Guacamole!!!!!!!!!!! All of that with 2 rations and 1 bandage! ;)

Ares in the original God of War.

Not exactly due to his and Kratos’ interactions throughout the game, but mainly because of all one learns about their past. He is a true villain – bad, focused on his purpose and completely uncaring of the effects of his actions on others – and his only flaw as being a bad person (read Olympian God) was underestimating Kratos (which all villains tend to do).

98

While I do love GLadOS, and have done so from the very first time I played Portal 1 and almost from the first sentence, I still think I need to go for Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII.

I remember back when I was playing FF7, and he was one of the first villains that struck me as really evil and crazy. I imagined this voice in my head that was kinda creepy in the times he seemed crazy, and this milder version when he was being “normal”. I also, at that time, found his look to be awesome (and while it’s a cool look, I might not find it as awesome as back when the game was new).
The scene with Aerith (or Aeris if you prefer) is among one of the most memorable scenes of any video games at that time, and it was at that point that I shed some tears and felt that I needed to kill Sephiroth ASAP because he had gone insane.

It’s weird going back to Final Fantasy VII now, because I don’t have the same voice in my head as I read his lines, but back then it made all the differenece in the world...

Atlas/Frank Fontaine. An amazing twist midway turned a friendly voice over the radio into a great villain pulling your strings with three polite words…”would you kindly”.

100

The killzone 2 opening cutscene, used to give me goosebumps & brain chills back in the day.

The superbly voice acted Visari by Brian Cox was legendary. So wicked, twisted & sinister, you cannot help siding with him and the Helghast.

AaronSOLDIER 19 July, 2013 @ 18:46

Kefka (FFVI) – The Joker of the Final Fantasy series; completely insane and just wants to watch the world burn (and half achieves that).

Also;

Sephiroth (FFVII) – The Darth Vader of the Final Fantasy series; starts off as an awesome ally, then his mind gets twisted and destroys anyone who gets in his way, walking through a sea of flames, possibly one of the most badass cutscenes from any videogame.

I vote for Master Xehanort from the Kingdom Hearts series.

First, he cares for nothing but his own goals and is merciless and remourceless. Second, and this is the main point, he is super persistent. I mean, he dies once, only to posess the hero´s body and send one of his friends to a dark dimension while forcing another to sacrifice his own heart, then he kills off his master and all his underlings and even himself, just so he could create his heartless and nobody, which have almost destroyed all worlds twice and both died just to come back stringer, and which would go back in time to convince his younger self to cause a chain reaction that would bring forth thirteen sides of himself into the future so as to be able to obtain ultimate power. He is super inteligent and has menipulated the whole world to proceed according to his plans.

Only to reset and surprise you with a horribly devious new beginning. Evil smiling moons and babbling bats anyone? :).

Now I know Time Crisis is bare boned when it comes to story content, and you might wonder how/why I came to this conclusion for villainous villain of all time. However, the simplicity of his evil and the frustration with his many (unlikely) returns make him more than just a bog standard villain. It may be the fact I played this at a bowling ally with the GunCon when I was younger, and found myself screaming “Why don’t you die!!!” while waving the plastic gun at the screen frantically. All I do know is this, of all the villains ...

Although he looks like a cross-dressing jester, Zarok from the MediEvil series has to be one of the most evil villains on PlayStation. The stuff he does is pretty tame until you get a few levels into the first game, where he possesses an entire town of people who try to go into murder mode upon seeing Sir Daniel.

The worst part is these villagers can be killed. Doing so makes your job easier, but it also punishes you and so it’s really not ideal. And it’s not just grown men and women who he turns into bloodthirsty hooligans; he does it to the children too.

This was definitely one of my most memorable game levels from the PS1 era.

108

It has to be Big Smoke from GTA: San Andreas.

I seriously hated this guy with a burning passion ever since he told me, “All you had to do was follow the damn train, CJ.”, about 50 times over after failing that God-forsaken mission every time.

As if that was not enough, he then sold himself out and betrayed Grove Street. Not cool. Never have I enjoyed killed a video game boss as much as him.

Grove Street 4 Lyf Homies! Except for you, Big Smoke.

I think my favourite Villain of all time has to be Fontaine (Bioshock)*Spoilers if you haven’t finished Bioshock*. He is a very calculated intelligent antagonist and one you as the player are being stringed along by. The moment it is revealed that the “would you kindly” has been a catalyst for every action you’ve carried out in the game, you don’t just feel for the main character, you as a player feel like you have personally been tricked. It is one of the smartest twists in all of Videogames and one which creates a villain the player could never have foreseen. As a villain Fontaine (OR Atlas) is persuasive, intelligent and sly, he doesn’t carry out his own work, no instead he watches from a safe distance as you carry out his every desire.The fact that a villain could be so effecting on the player personally is a great accomplishment and one which ever since has left players looking for the next big twist.

So therefore personally I feel that Frank ‘Atlas’ Fontaine is my favourite villain of all time even if you don’t know he’s a villain to the last hour or so the shockwaves of this villain are felt and we as players feel deceived and cheated as Jack (the main character) felt.

The most villainous villain is the ennemy in Pong! It is what started it all in gaming and it led to where we are today. When you play Pong, you think “Hey, this is fun, I’m going to crush this little ennemy paddle”. Then, after several minutes of play, you realise that this “thing” will never back down, will always be there to beat you and will crush your hopes and your soul by coming on top everytime. The simplicity and perfection of this ennemy make it the most villainous ennemy of all time.

111

Of course the most beloved of super-villians in gaming has to be The Joker. He is perhaps the most menacing entity of all of Arkham City and is a personification of all that is evil. His face is very rarely ever seen yet his tricks and shenanigans are a an unexpected moments notice away. He is also perhaps the trendiest of villians, with his purple tux and green hair. His quotes are by far the most chilling and thought provoking:
“So how do you keep a secret from the World’s Greatest Detective? Well, do you know? You stick it right up under him. Right up under his long pointy nose, and wait.”

I’ve thought hard about this, and have come up with who I believe is the most evil, villainous villain in all of gamedom. I’ve considered several dozen worthy candidates, but none came close to being as awful as who I believe is the true King of Villains. The Joker? No. Gnasty Gnorc? Not even close. No, the true villain of gaming is…

The player. Yes, it’s true. The player takes control of a character, treating them like nothing more than a puppet, strips away that characters free will, and then forces them to do his or her bidding! This often involves killing hundreds and thousands of people in cold blood, destroying whole nations, stealing, lying and goodness knows how many other shady acts! Often, he or she lets those characters that they control die, or at least go through vast amounts of pain and agony, all for his or her amusement.

No sicker or more disturbed mind exists than the evil puppetmaster named… The Player

This is hard choice for me but if I have to choose a real nasty villain then it’s Talbot from Uncharted 3.

During the game you start to dislike him the more you play. He drugs your friend to turn against you and then uses it to drug Drake, and then it looks like he killed Sully. Not to mention he’s also a big jerk.

115

It has to be Dr Ivo Robotnik (Eggman as he is more commonly known as). Yes anyone that can trap Sonic’s friends and enslave them into his robot army must be really really bad. Maybe its his large bushy moustache, maybe its his egg shaped frame, balding head or his deep booming voice (these things make him a nasty and vile character in my mind) He wants world domination in every game and will go through great lengths to try and obtain it, there can be no one more villianess than Eggman.
Plain and simple Eggman = very bad man (ie not a nice man)

116

For me, the greatest (and my personal favourite) video game villain would have to be Sony.

Why? Simple. I spent a small fortune buying a Playstation 3, I emigrated. I dragged that Playstation 3 over 10,000km, spent a small fortune in shipping costs as well. I bought a number of games on the Playstation Network. I even managed a couple of achievements.

Why is Sony then a villain, you ask? Because after all that, I asked support for help, I contacted them through Twitter and repeatedly, they couldn’t be bothered to respond or to migrate my PSN account’s region. I can no longer buy games because I can’t use the credit card of my new home. I’m told I should just “create a new account.” Why? And lose my achievements? My username? The games I own digitally on PSN?

No. The greatest villain of video gaming is the one that has you fall in love with them, and then abandons you when you need their support. And that, to me, would be Sony.

Picking the worst villain in a video game is no easy feat. There’s a number of factors that spring to mind when I think back through all my gaming experience to try and decide.
There’s the one who seemingly wouldn’t die, Ripto from the Spyro games in the PS one days, though he didn’t seem particularly dastardly to me.
Then there’s the ones with the memorable battles for varying reasons. *TLOU SPOILER ALERT* The terror of David’s battle from the Last of Us where one wrong move can bring him straight at you. Or the epic scale of the leviathon on Resistance 2, bigger than most skyscrapers. All three Uncharted games also had memorable bosses in one way or another.
Ultimately though, the boss I will resent for the rest of my life, is Killzone 2’s Radec. Specifically on Elite. The hours and hours it took me to defeat him, not to mention the entire ISA army’s worth of lives I lost to finally defeat him. For this reason alone, he is easily to worst boss I’ve ever had to face in any game,...

vass from far cry 3 was the most believable and well acted psycho in any game. he was the star of the game. he made the game and was genuinely a delight to be afraid of

There’s so many great villains to pick, but one of the most memorable to me is Master D who looked exactly like Hitler (which he was called in the original Japanese version) from the NES-game Bionic Commando.

When you kill him you get a very gory close-up scene of Hitler’s head exploding. Needless to say when played at 90’s as a kid this was the coolest thing ever! I couldn’t believe Nintendo’s censorship department didn’t remove it.

PSN remake version Bionic Commando Rearmed also has this scene, check it out for laughs!

Dracula, from the Castlevania series, naturally.

Not only is ‘Dracula’ one of the greatest villains in general (within the realms of movies, tv and books), but he’s made a huge mark in the realm of video games too. Within the Castlevania games, he’s a villain that just DOESN’T die, not permanently anyway. Countless Belmonts have faught Dracs, but he just keeps comin’ back! Resurrected time and time again.

Not only that, but he commands a huge ever-changing magical castle filled hordes of demonic minions and gigantic monsters, all of whom serve the Count, gladly throwing away their own existence for him.

AND! The friggin’ grim reaper is his peon! He commands Death himself! Heck, in one game he even fuses/merges with Death to create a super demon form!

He’s iconic within the video game industry as one of the most memorable recurring villains of all time, up there with the likes of Dr. Robotnik, Bowser, Dr. Wily, Dr. Neo Cortex, etc.

An amazing villain from one of the best and longest running franchises out there!

Oh and I have to mention this! In the Lords of Shadow games *Spoiler Alert*…He’s also a Belmont! Which adds a whole new layer to his rivalry with his own Belmont clan!

121

The most villainous villain is every car I hit in the intersection during a race. They’re so evil and malicious, I just know they’re doing it on purpose and I can’t tell when and where they strike. Sometimes they even drive away after crash like nothing has happened so they can act the innocent again. Pure evil!

122

Dr Nefarious! Because well…amongst all other evil qualities, he just hates SQUISHIES!

Catherine Spoilers

I’m going to be weird and say Thomas Mutton, as Boss he just oozes cool you’re sitting chatting with him the whole game, he gives you one liners and gives you fancy drinks only to find out he’s the reason you’ve been climbing a tower of bizarre monsters and depressed sheep.

124

SHODAN from system shock, holds your hand throughout the game them BAM ultra cool AI enemy.
The twist was as good as the final fight but it ruined Bioshock for me as even though it was well executed,I kinda knew what to expect.

An hohonorable mention must go to Dracula from Symphony of the Night. Just because of the hoops you have to jump through to face him, and that you basically get the whole game over again to play through only with new enemies, an inverted map and awesome power ups!

125

So… Spoilers for inFamous

I can only think of Kessler. He went back in time, devastated a whole city, killed millions of people, created an army of monsters and killed the person he loved the most in the world so his past self, Cole wouldn’t be as weak as him and become the hero he wasn’t able to be. Man is his own worst enemy, and nothing expresses that better than a man who destroyed everything around him and nearly himself, thinking he was doing it for the right reasons.

Probably have to say M.Bison from Street Fighter, just a crude, sinister character. also the abilities make him a superior fighter compare to the human like Guile and Ryu, certainly a living breathing monster!!!!

M.Bison, you ~~~~!!! (excuse my french)

Definitly “Boss” from Catherine. Challenging innocent couples to the edge of their relationship. Creating the perfect girl for the guy so that they fall in love with her and leave their current girlfriend. He’s a broken soul and want other people to feel his suffer. You can understand him in a way but it’s just terrible to do. In human form he was scared of everybody but when he was in a dream, he was literally “The Boss” :-p.

Even Though He Was One of The Villains in Far Cry 3. I Really Love Vaas..

129

Mr.Scratch from Alan Wake American Nightmare. The guy can appear really charming but he is all evil.
He is greedy, self-centered, prideful, arrogant, power hungry maniac who has no empathy towards anything. Absolutely anything.
This clip shows exactly what I mean. http://www. youtube.com/watch?v=rWfjq1drLD8

Anthony Xue from Outcast is also pretty nice as villain because it shows how human attributes such arrogance can blind people from the truth and logic. The guy just won’t admit that he made a mistake which leads to his ultimate doom and even then he can’t see himself being the mistaken one. (Please help make a sequel for this game)

David from TLOU is ok as villain but as the game implies a bit that Joel was a Hunter as well for some time so I couldn’t say which is worse. The guy openly being bad guy (after revealing it) or the guy hiding his true face.

Dr.Nefarious is just comical villain but not that great in the end.

ME from Skyrim… I stole from everyone including poor drug addicts who lived in sewers, I befriended a knight who strove the protect her town from the tyranny of thieves and unbeknownst to her I actually helped raise the thieves guild to unparalleled power, I worked for a group of religiously blinded assassins, I killed innumerable soldiers who either were just doing their job or were rebelling for what they believed was right, I bribed guards, I escaped jail, I committed genocide upon the ancient race of dragons and I helped instigate war… Pretty evil I’d say.

131

I just got to say thanks to all of you for being kind enough to warn us about spoilers, specially for the last of us, really appreciate it guys ;)

132

Senator from Metal Gear Solid Rising.

Pretty much every second juvenile female character in japanese game is my worst villain, especially in JRPGs.
I can accept a certain level of cuteness … but good lord, I have my limits too! :P

I know that the Japanese in RL also have a different stance on cuteness than we do. Females wearing all-pink fluffy costumes and such (just a minority ofc, but still). Really fearsome are their characters and their life credos though. Oh, and that they are usually almost still kids ofc.

My favourite gaming villain hmm…
Well the villain that give me the most nostalgic feeling is Ripto from Spyro a gate way to glimmer.
The most funny villain i have encountered is Doctor Nefarious and the villain that was most satisfying to beat was master Xehanort from Kingdom Hearts birht by sleep, but somehow Doctor Neo Cortex is in my mind the most iconic villain in playstation history and most likely my favourite gaming villain.

Citra from Far Cry 3 (Vaas’ sister)

[SPOILER ALERT]
I like how she seemed like a friend but all she really wanted was your child and once she was done banging you she puts a knife through your chest.
One the most memorable villians in my opinion, although I feel like a villain for doing that ending.

Slender :D

137

Kefka – without a doubt. He’s completely evil. And least favorite villain – those two persons from Singstar. They always jump on me everytime i eject a disc from my PS3 and i can’t kill them. It’s really annoying.

138

There is more than one for me in that amazing Playstation history. For example the R-type games had great bosses on Plastation 1 already. And then there were the PS2 bosses that sometimes even kept us awake at night in our younger years and haunted us in our dreams.

Like The Hydra in God of War on Playstation 2, in a great game that does everything HUGE, you would expect some mighty bosses, but what you dont expect is one to show its amazingly gigantic face – actually three faces – five minutes into God of War’s opening gameplay. You are constantly reminded of the Hydra’s presence throughout the level and scarcity some, yet you’ll probably still stifle a nervous whimper when you clamber up the final shipwreck for the showdown ;)

But our friends from Electronic Arts has instead wisely skimmed through the worst enemy gallery of the comics until their eye was caught by Metallo in a skyscraper-high exoskeleton. One of the most memorable enemys in a videogame of all time that still brings shivers upon my neck.

139

(cont)And I have to stick to PS2 even more… Tidal Wave also had an Optimus Prime – like (or even bigger) semi-truck like Robot-thing that truly is memorable. The visual highlight in a games full of visual highlights – truly impressive. Back then and even still today.

Now for PS3.. In Fallout 3 was some truly impressive gigantic “things” that followed you gave memorable boss duels – the Super Mutant Behemoths confrontation with one of these inexorable beasts at the Galaxy News Radio establishment which I will never forget in my gaming history.

From Portal, truly memorable is GLaDOS.

Sorry for still not mentioning Hideo Kojima , truly the iconic clash between metal monstrosities Metal Gear Rex and Metal Gear Ray on Shadow Moses Island in Metal Gear Solid 4 wrote gaming history – not just because you faced the enemy with Snake in the pilot seat.

(cont)One of the best Boss Fights definately was Colonel Radec in Killzone 2. Hard as nails and ready to drive a rather sharp object through your eye socket if you let him, Radec isnt the most intelligent of boss battles – requiring you simply to run around dodging his attack – tho it still remains one tuff cookie to dispatch, especially on the higher difficulty settings, where that combat can last like half an hour (at least for me :) ).

Also memorable was in Resistance 2 the fight Nathan Hale Vs. Leviathan.. It was like…. what would you get when you cross Godzilla, Chimera and set the action in the City of Chicago? A truly gripping boss battle with enemys of epic size hopping on the Chicago skyline. One of the highlights of a truly great game.

Of course we cannot forget Shadow of the Colossus, fighting Avion.
Jack Krauser in RE4. Mr. freeze in Batman. The Dragon’s in Vagrant Story. Crying Wolf, Metal Gear Rex, The End in MGS. Crawmerax the Invincible in Borderlands. The Imperial S...

But if I would have to decide for one .. which is impossible .. I would just say that Spider from Limbo :)

141

Now you might not see this coming. But this guy was a very memorable character to me. While not the main character, he certainly beats the main character in all possible evil and vile stuff.

Gnarl, the Minion Master and Devoted Servant of Darkness – from the Overlord series.

So he is the first minion, older than all the Overlords, and I am pretty sure that he is the puppet master for all the vile things the Overlords are occupied with. You also got to love that smokey, hissy voice, and quoting his words would be preaching pure evil, and we would certainly want to do that – in his voice if possible.

“You can now control 15 Minions! 15! That’s double the number of brain cells in the average sheep!”
“Without their females the Elven race would be wiped from the face of this land! No more Elves? Ah, be still my beating heart!”
“One last thing, Sire… Killing innocents, and I use the term loosely, increases your Corruption level.”

And so on… Gotta love Gnarl, after all he helped us reesta...

————–SPOILER ALERT—————

Origami Killer: Heavy Rain (a.k.a Scott Shelby)

I think Killing young boys and then leaving an orchid and an origami in their hands is creepy. Seriously creepy. It’s disturbing and a little sad. He grows up and decides to re-enact the same scenario from the event with his brother with a few unlucky kids!. I know it was because of his childhood (his own father let his brother drown)Talk about some serious daddy issues, but Killing kids is just pure Evil. Scott sets up five brutal trials for Ethan, that test him in sick ways like cutting off his own finger. Uhhh.

In my opinion Scott Shelby is the most villainous villain I’ve ever come across in a game because he is a murderer as merciless and ruthless as Death itself. A sick minded child killer.

My favourite videogame villain is, without a doubt, VAMP from the Metal Gear Solid Series. In fact, I dare to say he is my favourite villain period, across all mediums. That character is a testament to the genius that is Hideo Kojima
You get to meet him in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (my favourite from the series). Before you even meet him you’re already scared of him. You end up in this corridor filled with dead bodies and gallons of blood.Then you see a soldier (the last man standing) shooting everywhere. And a misterious figure drops from above and slashes him into a fountain of blood, without a blink, no hesitation. He drinks his blood. And he cuts himself in the chest (“five today” he says in a menacing voice by the incredible Philip Lamarr). And who can forget the boss battle Raiden has with him.

There are a few awesome villains that I will always remember.

But my choice has to be the Cordiceps fungus and Infected in The Last Of Us. They may not be the games antagonist per say but the fungus infection itself could be described as the games ‘Villain’.
The way the fungus and the Infected have a complete biological cycle made each encounter with each infected person and their different stages of infection a real cause for thought.

You see these poor people being overcome by the disease when you see a Runner just stood there crying and whimpering as it takes over their body and mind and then seeing the next stage on being the Clickers that have lost all sight and rely on echo location with that BONE CHILLING clicking and when an infected dies it lies in a corner and the fungus then sprouts out of it in all directions to germinate and therefore try and be passed on to anyone unlucky enough to breath in its spores.

Naughty Dog didn’t just give us a generic zombie type shuffling walking dead that we’ve seen so many times before and the sheer weight, detail and believable complexity of the fungus/infected back story and biological cycle make it my favourite ‘villain’ by a long way.

145

Bobby Kotick.

146

The white witch for Ni no Kuni. I mean the game can look quite cutesy and kiddish at a first glance but she bring the game away form that and brings it to a darker place, and to make a game like Ni no kuni seem that way where you play as a little boy has to mean she is extremely evil.. and lets face it she is one B**** of a Witch!! Lucky i have my trusted familiar “Slick” to stop her.

147

The biggest video game villain of all time has to be Ganon from The Legend of Zelda. His creepy face and red hair used to scare me as a kid and there was no better feeling than defeating him and completing that epic game!

dark_angel69 19 July, 2013 @ 20:53

I noticed a few people already mentioned characters I wanted to say so will choose another.

My villain is Dante in Uncharted Golden Abyss.

***SPOILER WARNING FOR THOSE THAT HAVEN’T PLAYED, DO NOT READ***

Reason for picking him is because he was an old friend of Drake only to have turned against him and tried to kill him. When Dante arrived at the Golden Abyss, he reveals that he knew about the radiation and was still intending to sell the irradiated gold onto the black market. Drank was then forced to fight him while he tried to kill him with a knife. We can never know when an old friend turns against us for money and even willing to kill us to get their way

David from The Last Of Us…

****SPOILERS****
****SPOILERS****
****SPOILERS****

Well not my favourite, it is more that he terrified me. When you first meet him you do feel something is off, but then the next segment of the game not only makes Ellie feel a little comfortable with him, but yourself also.

Then that reveal, he just becomes terrifying… he at first comes across as pure evil, but you know he has been driven to the point he has, much in the same way Joel turns from non-interested, just a job, to will do anything for Ellie. David isn’t driven by greed, or any of the usual reasons for a villain in games. He has been destroyed by the world around him and doesn’t care for consequence any longer.

The moments in the restaurant followed by the panic playing back as Joel to save Ellie were driven by the knowledge that this man just didn’t have any sense of moral judgement left.

Sin from Final Fantasy X, he destroyed Kilika like it was nothing, and then the revelation that Sin is Jecht made me even angrier at him, and after all that he is immortal(unless you are Tidus).

154

I would have to go with Sephiroth from FFVII.
It took me ages to finally defeat him. I used to give up and leave it for months then when I came back to try again, I would restart the whole game. But I eventually did it. I think he is also a likeable villain even though he’s evil but he’s always the one that comes to mind when someone says villain.

WayfaringWalrus 19 July, 2013 @ 21:17
155

It still has to be Sephiroth (FF7) for me. I still remember quaking in my boots at the thought of having to fight him. The guy was the epitome of evil! Just thinking about him murdering Aeris, even all these years later, still makes me feel a little sad inside. Even though she was only a video game character, you still had an emotional attachment. It’s that kind of thing that is what truly makes game narratives on a par with cinematic narratives – when you genuinely hate someone so much that you feel the need to get your revenge on them. I can’t remember many others in any game since having such a profound effect on me.

Lazarivic from Uncharted 2. I never hated a character like that before.He had no mercy and no conscious at all. When he killed Jeff,the cameraman, I was so sad. The way he treated everyone even his own men was awful.

157

Mine is ganondorf from legend of Zelda ocarina of time when you confront him at the end and he is playing a organ! pure evil

158

Big Boss. Kojima built up such a special relationship with this character. He starts off as your father/mentor and it turns out he has his own plans regardless of Snake. It was such a betrayal in MG1 that it will stick with me for years to come.

Your feelings towards Big Boss really fluctuates. In MG1 and MG2 you just want to put a stop to his plans. In MGS1 and MGS2 his backstory gets more fleshed out, and you get more intrigued than upset at him for his actions.

Then MGS3 came along, and it’s to date my favorite game. It shed a completely new light on one of the most awesome characters within entertainment. You are with Naked Snake in the jungle. You suffer along side of him. By the end, you will have realized a lot of things. Big Boss wasn’t born, he was made.

Then came MGS4, and had one of the most awesome after credits scenes I’ve ever seen. The fatherly hug, and his explanation to Snake gives me goosebumps every time.

Its clearly Joker from the Batman games. You think he’s secure, think again. Feeling the effects of an overdosage of Titan ? Lets get my best buddie Batman on the case (BASEBALL BAT). Think you’ve got him ? No, look again, does Clayface look like Joker NOW ? And all the while you get to travel around Arkham while your most deadly nemesis bonds with you over the comms. The horror.

My mind went immediately to the Playstation 1 game Suikoden II, and the bad guy Luca Blight and this moment from early on in the game: he destroys a village and a civilian pleads for her life, he tells her to act like a pig and she starts oinking on all fours to which he just responds DIE PIG and slashes her with his sword.

Heihachi Mishima.

Tekken was my first Playstation game and he kicked my ass as the final boss. He threw his young son off a cliff just as a test, then later he threw him into a volcano. He also adopted another son just to make his real son jealous. After he’d killed his son (or so he thought at least), he found his grandson, and raised and trained him pretty nicely, but only so he would powerful enough to draw out the demon Ogre. Once that was done he threw his grandson out of a plane (although that ending wasn’t canon). Later on we found out he’d locked his father in a dungeon for decades.

He’s the ultimate villain because all of his evilness is directed at his own family. There’s no love, no care, not even any respect for anyone but himself. A lot of villains have a secret soft side, or one person they love, or a sob story to explain how they became a villain. Not Heihachi. He’s just straight up evil because he chooses to be.

That Little Boy in Mass Effect 3! He made you chose between 3 crappy endings to an awesome trilogy! Sure the extended cut made the endings a lot better, but that little brat made the internet turn into a warzone for crazy fans who were voicing their opinions of the ending in a disrespectful way! The little kid made many a few Mass Effect fan cry and was definitely the biggest troll of 2012!

~~~SPOILERS FOR BATMAN ARKHAM CITY~~~
For me the greatest villain of them all is Joker. This iconic and insane character is frightening not just because he can kill you (and others) or make you suffer but because he is psychotic and has total anarchic freedom. But still, being a great villain, he is a beloved character not just because everything to him is a joke but fundamentally because him and Batman are such fundamentally similar. They act as skewed mirror images of each other, giving the other a purpose he could never have without his counterpart, and that is what makes his death in Batman Arkham City even more disturbing and depressing. Even though he has a villain i am sure that no one whanted to see him gone, not even Batman.

GIGA DARKDEATH EVILMAN. Because sometimes, ‘Darkdeath Evilman’ just isn’t enough. And occasionally, ‘Giant Darkdeath Evilman’ won’t cut the mustard either.

And of course, everyone knows that you’re not a properly evil end-boss unless you’ve got at least three different forms.

(On a serious note, more people need to play Z.H.P. Definitely my favourite PSP game ever!)

Who to choose DR Nefarious from Ratchet and Clank, or Kefka from Final Fantasy IV.
They are both great villains as you never know whether to be scared of them, or laugh at their every line, and Kefka being the first character in a Final Fantasy game to be heard, even if it’s it’s just an evil laugh, makes him a little more special over other Final Fantasy villains. However, because of how good the voice actor and animation of Dr Nefarious is I would have to choose him. I may have to play Ratchet and Clank again just to hear his laugh. GOOD TIMES!

Lance Vance is easily the most villainous villain we’ve ever seen in games. This guy may not have been exactly a Vice City nightmare who drinks blood and steals nuttela, but his acts have been villanous on the most intimate level.
Srsly, he broke our hearts. He was supposed to be our criminal dr. Watson, but just had to go and ruin seemingly eternal friendship, because of money, power-hunger and envy. He had been one of the most likeable gaming side-kicks, so we loved Lance like we could love a brother made of 1’s and 0’s. But he stabbed us right in the back.
So, yeah, that guy is quite an evildoer.

My favorite villain of all time has to be,

Lavos from Chrono Trigger.
Truly one the greatest JRPG ever!
and one of my (many) favorite games of all time!!!

The real ingenus-ity of this horrifying looking alien beast,
is the fact that you can pretty much face him whenever you want throughout the game,

2/4’s of the way through the game you get to see the true power of Lavos as he destroys the entirety of the Earth’s surface.

the sheer fact of knowing just how evil and powerful this guy and the fact you can face him whenever you want to end the game,
even when not getting to the actual end,
and to get one of the many different endings,
is both unique and really scary.

Heck 3/4’s through the game, Lavos freaking beats the crap out of your team in his 1ST ATTACK!
and literally KILLS YOUR MAIN CHARACTER!!!

And than when you finally fight the monster in one of the many ways you can approach the fight

You have an extremely epic battle, with various forms and beautiful music!!!

That is what defines Lavos as one of my favorite villain’s of all time.

Sif the Great Grey Wolf. Not sure if I should call Sif a villain or not but he was the first character to come into my mind when I read the question. I remember how a lot of people hated Sif because he was strong and his fighting style was tricky, but then they understood the story, and after that the dlc came out and the tears followed it. I don’t wanna spoil anything but whoever played Dark Souls (and the dlc) would probably know what I’m talking about.

Whenever I think of any type of villains, the very first “long” game that I ever beat comes to mind. It was “Castle Excellent” for NES and I was 9 years old. That game is full of dead-ends and only 3 lives were given, if I remember correctly. The worst part of the cartridge was that if you pressed the “pause” button, the menu with the “save” option came up, but on my console it was impossible to save anything ( which may have to do with the fact that I grew up in the Soviet Union, and our version of NES console was called “Dandy” and was a totally pirated but nevertheless very widely commercialized clone of the original NES).

That game was based on a 10×10 rooms grid with varying challenges for each room. In order to progress, you had to collect keys of multiple colors, as each door would only open with the corresponding key. The layout of the rooms was non-linear, that is to say that in most of the rooms you had the option of choosing to use the colored key to enter a new room that may end up being a dead end if you did not have additional keys, while very often it was impossible to return to the room you came from (either a long drop, so u can’t jump back, or spikes, or elevators, or water, which was evil in its own right).
That game does contain villains in a traditional sense, and you had to both time and be pixel-perfect to kill anyone with a tiny sword you were equipped with. But the true villain was the inability to go back to the rooms which contained critical keys, even if u had an extra life. For example, if you had to go underwater, you had to use scuba gear-like item, which did not respawn, e...

I fondly remember getting up at around 8 or 9 am on hot summer days, and firing the game up. It will then take me until about 12 pm to reach a point where I was last stuck in, in order to have another trial by error (even though I was 9, I was already savvy enough to record on paper all of my movements and key locations, lol). If I chose a wrong room at this point, and get stuck again, would mean another 3 hours to get back to the same spot, trying not to get killed in the process.
The bloody Fairy, who you were supposed to save, was a greatest villain of them all, as you were able to enter the room she was in well before you had the correct keys to open her doors and were forced to travel for another few hours all over the castle before you had any chance of opening 3 brown (most rare type of key) and 2 green doors in a row, which would lead to her rescue and game completion.

There’s been some great video game villains recently mainly brought about by the more sinister details provided by improved graphics. The fantastic Joker and his surprisingly sexy sidekick Harley Quinn from Batman Atkham City, Vaas from Far Cry 3 who really should have stayed on into the second half of the game to be a true great even if he was a little camp.
But I like the sinister to be mellowed by a bit of humour and while Glados had those attributes I just can’t see past Wheatley as a superb character who whilst a bumbling super villain in the true sense of the words and a sandwich short of a picnic, he provided memorable gaming moments (although Glados the potato runs him close).
The villain doesn’t have to be the final boss level of a game lasting 15mins of button presses, you can get just as much joy out of of the strange and subtle bosses who just entertain you during the game rather than scaring the bejesus out of you at the end by turning into a three headed octopus.

Handsome Jack from Borderland 2.
He’s just so funny in his own way. ( Black humor, sarcasm, making fun of the vault hunters ) He is just the most fun Villain I have ever seen.

176

Oh, the most villainous villains of all villains is without a doubt the cars from Frogger. The poor, innocent little frog is constantly pursued by these cold, heartless drivers, when all he wants to do is get across the river to his frog-wife and frog-kids. The worst part about it, is they have no real motivation to want Frogger dead. They’re just too selfish to deviate even a little from their perfectly linear paths in order to avoid him. As Alfred once said ‘Some men just want to watch the world burn.’

177

What does it take for the villain to be the embodiment of malice and evil incarnated?

First of all, it takes immense physical power and the ability to harness mystical forces. Power to decimate the players in mere seconds. One needs a lot of dedication to defeat the good villain.
Secondly, he needs an unquenchable thirst for even more power. A thirst so great, that to satisfy it, he needs huge tornadoes of souls to serve as his meal.
Then, it takes disregard of all, who try to engage in seemingly hopeless struggle to stop the villain. Taunting them constantly is a perfect example of that. What is the purpose of taking them seriously if they are just another little bugs to squash?
It also takes perseverance. Simply having your heart ripped out of his chest is not going to stop the villain from coming back… even more determined to decimate everything in his path.

It’s Edgar Ross from Red Dead Redemption, if only because he’s the only villain who made me feel genuinely ticked off in real life.

*RDR SPOILERS*

I’ll paint the picture. I, John Marston, was a troubled man, a man who had done terrible things during the course of a lifestyle wrought with callousness and unspeakable skullduggery. But I wanted to change. I’d left that lifestyle behind, and now, the road to the titular redemption had revealed itself. I vowed to erase the ghosts of my past, engaging in such noble acts as saving innocent women from lynch mobs, reclaiming an old fellow’s stolen wagon and picking flowers. Actually, scratch that last one.

Anyway, along came Bureaucrat McPencilpusher to ruin my spritual rebirth. I spent several in-game hours enduring his tired witticisms and vanquished the toughest hoodlums in the Old West for him, and what does he do in return? Has me shot, the ungrateful sod.

My Villain come with a SPOILER ALERT.

The origami killer in Heavy Rain

I know he suffered problems when he was a kid, and had a big loss. But because of that, make moms, fathers suffer in the mind and body that type of punishment is too much. As a father i got me wondering how far i would go to safe my son, but even more that he had no exchses to destroying lives like he did. For me one of the most human and bad villain in games.

181

For me, the most villainous villain has to be Metal Gear Solid “PSYCHO MANTIS” for so many reasons, i’ll explain just some.
Once upon a time in the winter of 1999, i was just a kid that loved his PLAYSTATION more than anything, i would play the console during all the free moments of the day.
One day, while playing Metal gear solid, i get to a nice decorated room in the game along with Meryl, i think “wow this looks so nice”. I start looking around the room and the next thing i see is Meryl pointing the gun at me while saying some crazy things, all i could think of was “omg what did i do wrong for her to be shooting me?”.
After some time i knock her down and finally meet the true evil “PSYCHO MANTIS”, the character himself was weird enough to freak me out with that suit and mask and the flying and the voice and the creepy music…anyway, he just starts talking about all that psyckokinesis and telepathy and im like “what the hell is that???”…

Continues on 2 post…

…at that moment i was already overwhelmed by all that information and crazy names but thats just when he starts talking about reading my soul and says “You like Castlevania don’t you?”, being just a kid and Castlevania being one of my favourite games, i jump off my chair and start to freak out saying “NO WAY! IMPOSSIBLE”.
The battle begins and im still shaking, my mom enters the room and sees me freaking out “what are you doing? whats going on?” she asks while im in the battle but can’t hit a single shot on the damn thing, suddenly the TV screen goes black and starts doing a “BEEE” sound only saying “HIDEO”. I open my arms and say “What?” my mom looks at me and asks “Whats a Hideo?”, the TV goes back to normal and into the fight, but i still can’t hit anything, 10 seconds later the screen goes “BEEEE” again. My mom tells me “you have been playing these games too much, now you broke the TV” turns it off “No more PLAYSTATION for 3 days”. For 3 days i couldn’t sleep just thinking “Did ...

It has to be Zero Jr. From zero escape virtues last reward. Initially the game reminded me a bit of the film Saw 2. So I described him as Jigsaw, if he was a cute, evil, Japense anime bunny, with a great evil laugh that sounds so creepy with all the Japanese language! Thought he was so great I got the avatar!

187

I think my favourite villain in a game was probably Domino, in the amazing pc game that is Grim Fandango that game came out in the 90s and yet never gets old, ive finished it countless times. The thing is with this game is i guess you could say the main character (Manny Calavera) is also a villain too as he is technically the grim reaper! Domino comes across as the bigger man and thinks he can tell Manny what to do and controls his feelings and it also tries to make the player scared of him too and makes you think exactly what Manny is thinking, but in the end Domino finds out who the better person is and not in a pleasant way haha but why does it matter if hes already dead!

My favourite gaming villain has to be Andross from Starfox 64.

Not only is he my favourite villain, he was also the first villain I had ever encountered in a game. He has all the makings of a perfect villain: A scientist with pure intentions at first who then develops a lust for power which in turn brings him to the point of insanity. Not only that but how many other video game villains are portrayed as a giant head with two giant hands? Even to this day the character still creeps me out.

RETRO!!! The Pac-Man ghosts!!

Those bad boys never give up, as long as your grabbing little white pills, they are trying to stop. I have no idea why they have it in for Pac-Man so bad – maybe those little white dots are actually baby ghosts, who knows. In fact, no one will ever know as Pac-Man has eaten them all.

Even when eaten and sent to the middle zone, they will not sit still, desperate to stop Pac-Man. and that reason, their relentless pursuit is why they are my favorite baddies ever!!!

The most villainous villain – is Diablo, because it was killing me and my friends a lot of times.

In my opining the most evil character can became the PLAYER HIMSELF. I think most of you guys tried being evil in a game that allows it. Lets look at Elder Scrolls games for example. What can be more evil then acting good to people of a small village, helping them with their every day problems and making their lives easier … Just to mercilessly slaughter them later on. You can torture people as you want by using anything at your disposal, from fire through blades or even pure dark energy. With all this tools and possibilities, its just up to your twisted mind what you can do. And thats why I think YOU can become the most evil being in the world.
