Best Villian In Gaming?

60 posts in this topic

Who is the best villian ever when it comes to games?

My personal picks are:

Vaas: Facry 3

Handsome Jack: Borderlands 2

Joker: Arkham Series

I could have wrote a proper reply but I'll just quote you given how your list is the same as mine. :P I especially loved Vaas and was so dissapointed he gets swapped out for that nobody Hoyt halfway in.

Yes. Vaas had way to small amount of screen time but compared to how little he had he killed it as a villian.

Kefka, Glados, Bowser, Sephiroth, and Shodan :)

Albert Wesker from the Resident Evil series. By far one of the most intellectual, devious, powerful and has the balls to say he has obtained the right to be a God.

All of the worthy of the title. I really loved Kefka from Final Fantasy. He kinda feels like the joker just with his own twist.

I have to agree that Vaas was beyond memorable, and a great villain. They definitely needed way more of him. (Though to be fair, Hoyt wasn't that bad himself.)

I think I have to put Dahlia Hawthorne from the Ace Attorney series. She wasn't really just a normal evil, she did /terrible/ things, and was able to make you think she was nothing but sweet underneath. (Not really a typical villain, but she was pretty dang evil.)

Dahlia was pure evil... kill it with fire.

Ganondorf from Zelda along with Ghirahim. Vaas was fantastic. I suppose I should put Bowser in there just because he was the original evil video game king, for me at least. Solomon from Battlefield 3 was completely evil during one scene. A lot of great villians. Too many to name.

Hmm. Haven't played all of the Resident Evil games yet. Which would you recomend? I've only played the Fourth.

I immediattely thought of Vaas. His intro was just epic :D That was 1 bad mofo :D

Handsome Jack is without a doubt the funniest villain ever :D 

Last but not least effing Kefka of Final Fantasy 6. Man I hated that guy. He really was evil :D Even during the final epic boss fight he was a pain in the ass :P  I thought the battle would never end :D The accompanying music made it quiet epic aswell.

Yes. There is alot of good villians. But i think that now if you want to make a good villian it needs to be different. For example the villian in Spec ops: The Line. Great villian but it was very vanilla and unusual. Still a great villian with a good plot twist. No spoilers.

I agree with all of your statements. Kefka was a bitch to kill :P But very,very rewarding. That's what's wrong with all boss battles now. They are all easy. Either it's quick time events or easy. Why not improve the boss battles. It feels really unsatisfying when the boss or villian is very easy to kill.

I loved Nikita Dragovich in Black Ops. He was truly evil and the way you killed him was so satisfying.

Yes he was an awesome villian. The way he confused Mason into thinking Reznow was still real.

Yeah one of mine aswell. I think the Troy Baker's Joker is the best.

Of course there's the classic villains like Dr Eggman/Robotnik and Bowser, but they seem to have the whole "If at first you don't succeed...try and try....." approach hammered into their heads.

My favourite on the other hand would have to be glaDOS from Portal. There's just something about her; the way she taunts you throughout both games.

The parents phone call moment was especially cold.

Runners up include; Vass, Joker, Albert Wesker and Zeus (God of War)

Yes. I know right. The classics did it first so they have a special place in my heart. But like i said i think of you want to make a good villian now. She/he needs to be orginal and creative and cruel and evil in a special way that hasn't been done before.

Xehanort - Kingdom Hearts

Makarov - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Series

Glados - Portal

 

there are a lot of them out there but these 3 stood out a lot in my opinion.
