Top 10 Greatest Backstabbers in Video Games

GameDynamo - "The problem with being a villain is that you have to associate with other villains in order to achieve your goals. Evil is not known for its loyalty to anyone or anything else, and any evil minions hired will usually end up betraying their masters. Of course, any backstab creates dramatic consequences. Here are some of the very best of the very worst in loyalty."

Flynn.... I was so heartbroken when the first Aussie I've ever seen in a video game, expecting him to go on a big grand adventure with me...... and he betrays me, shoots me then blows himself up

F***ing Flynn

English and British are interchangeable.

Harry Flynn was a British treasure hunter and the secondary antagonist in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. He is voiced and mo-capped by Steve Valentine.

- uncharted wiki

Noooooo! Everything I believe is a lie :(

Allso Chloe is the Australian... I though they both were, my interpritation of accents is still terrible

I thought Flynn was kinda obvious. You could just tell he was a traitor.

The list needs Wheatley... I really wasn't expecting that one. He's a Brit actually a RoBrit (sorry, that's my bad joke of the day).

QED: no, they're not. All English are British, but not all British people are English. Logic fail, which is unfortunate for someone with a username such as yours.

justpassinggas1419d ago

@LightofDarkness: Bubbles. You took the words right out my mouth. I'm pretty sure the Scots, the Welsh, and the IRA like being called "English".

Irishguy951418d ago (Edited 1418d ago )

The Ira don't like being called British either though haha. But eh...British and England are interchangeable when you are ignorant.

Edit--Also, Kain's betrayal. I cried

Also, if you think Britain and England are interchangeable, then Germany/France/England etc and Europe are Interchangeable, Florida and America and interchangeable etc

@guitarded: rofl yeah i completely agree. I knew it was gonna happen on my first play through.

Actually, when my friend was playing Uncharted at my house he was like "OH MY GOD A NEW CHARACTER WITH AN ENGLISH ACCENT HES GONNA BETRAY DRAKE IN LIKE 20 MINUTES". I just lolled xD

I do not believe the writer understands Ocelot or the Metal Gear story. Ocelot wasn't a backstabber. If you look at his entire purpose it was to support Big Boss. Even before he knew Big Boss, Ocelot was the individual codenamed "Adam" who was assigned to arrive with Eva to support Naked Snake.

Once he encountered Naked Snake, before Jack (John) was awarded the name Big Boss, Ocelot's loyalty shifted from his mission to support Big Boss to a loyalty for the man himself. On that front Ocelot never wavered. Everything he did after that, from the rise of the Patriots (which was already in effect before MGS3) was for Big Boss. He lived and he died to insure the vision Big Boss inherited from The Boss, onward to the moment they would bring down Zero and the Patriots.

If you look carefully in MGS3 when Big Boss meets the President, Ocelot is just outside the office (in the window) watching the ceremony and saluting Big Boss.

Ocelot wasn't someone that was incredibly loyal to Big Boss and then betrayed him. Not at all. He stuck with him to the end.

Ocelot gave it in spades to a lot of people in his life, from the Russians to the Patriots, but in his mission, in his real allegiance he never wavered once he realized Big Boss was a leader he would follow to hell.

Ocelot sacrificed his career, his mind, and his life. If anything Ocelot should be on the list of most loyal game characters.

yojimbo_slice1418d ago

Well put morganfell. Besides Solid Snake and Big Boss, Ocelot has to be one of the most badass characters in the Metal Gear universe.

God I love that series...

They did that WAY too early, when that happened I though wtf really? Its been like an hour? It was kind of stupid but the setup was decent.

Capt-FuzzyPants1419d ago

Axel and Kain are my favorite characters there. The amount of times Kain switched was a litle ridiculous though.(Spoiler kinda?) Axel was a good guy and it's good to know is human form will be back.

belac091419d ago

how about patches the hyena?

Blastoise1419d ago

Or anyone from Dark souls PVP, if you get me :P

dragonknight41419d ago

I was gonna say the same thing. Dark Souls is the ultimate backstabbing game.

A-Glorious-Dawn1418d ago

yeah how about most players in DayZ

I hate you all!

Great pick with Ocelot at #1. The guy swindled people, governments, supercomputers, himself and even the fans by redeeming himself in the end. Genius.
