Who Is The Best Villain?
It’s a simple enough question: which videogame villain is the best? Who is the baddest, the most evil, the most sinister and menacing? Every game has at least one because at the end of the day that’s what every game boils down to – the protagonist triumphing over the villain.
There’s certainly no shortage of villains as a result just a shortage of decent ones that are worth remembering. It doesn’t even have to the big baddie at the end of the game, it could just as well be a lesser-villain. Scarecrow may not have been the biggest villain in Batman: Arkham Asylum but he certainly gave us a more than memorable experience.
We’re not talking about villain’s purely from a story point of view either, it could just as easily eb a villain that was rather bland but gave you a fight for your money in a tight boss fight. Not that you’d find many of those instances cropping up nowadays with memorable boss fights being a thing of the past it would seem. I certainly had good fun beating the crap out of Pope Rodrigo Borgia and using the Apple of Eden against him.
Of course, no debate about the best villain is complete without mentioning GlaDOS, perhaps the greatest villain to ever exist. Even has a potato she was menacing.
So who’s the best (or is it worst?) villain in your opinion?
