10 Video Game Heroes Who Are Actually Terrible At Their Jobs

WC: Heroes are often mired in unfortunate circumstances. Specifically, the particular set of protagonists featured in this article have lackluster job performances – they might be heroes, but they suck at their supposed every day jobs. Imagine employing an Italian plumbing firm only to discover they are frequently unavailable to complete contracted work thanks to swanning off on adventures to save princesses from giant lizard kings while under the influence of power-inducing mushrooms. You wouldn’t recommend them to friends in a hurry.

But instead of making us disregard these characters as slackers or bumbling fools, their ineptitude has made each of them a little more intriguing, and even the unsavory characters listed here are rendered somewhat appealing by tragic circumstances or fatal flaws related to their careers.

So here they are, the 10 video game heroes who are actually quite awful at their jobs.

Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead for several popular franchises. Proceed... (Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dishonored, Max Payne, PC, PS3, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360)

Sly Cooper would definitely fit into this category.

I mean, he's supposed to be the world's greatest thief, implying subtlety and finesse. However, a lot of missions in his games have him carelessly ransacking areas or outright assaulting enemies. That doesn't sound like an expert thief to me.

The games are still loads of fun, though.
