Top 5 Pointless Video Game Characters

One of the most enduring questions men have asked relates to the purpose of existence. Why do I exist? Why am I here? One of the most enduring niggles of every gamer is the pointless character. The character who gets in the way of your headshot. The character who bogs down the story with excessive drivel. The character who just won’t shut up. The characters who force us, as gamers, to ask: ‘Why are you here? What purpose do you serve?’ Before we risk a game over screen just so we can watch them die. Over and over again. We’ve turned the question of existentialism on the video game industry and compiled a list of the 5 most pointless video game characters. (Culture, Final Fantasy II, Resident Evil 5, Retro)
