How does Vaas even make these lists? He was in the game for a total of 5 minutes.

@iamnsuperman *spoilers* he pops up in maybe 4 or 5 cutscenes total and each one lasts less than 2 minutes and each time he lets you escape. His character does absolutely nothing but act angry and scream at you. Then you kill him in what is basically a dream.

I don't understand people's praise of Vaas at all. Sam was a much better character in that game.

O come on he was in it from at least half to 3/4 of the game and he was by far the best of the bad guys in it and it was criminal what happened to him

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

He was a great character and expertly acted.

OT: Good list

@edit: fair enough but I disagree with you assumption that is character is absolutely nothing. His ending was a bit weak which I felt sorry for because he was a good character

I must have missed him..was he standing behind me for 3/4 of the game? Making sure I could never see him?

Because when he was in the game, he made such a deep and profound impact and the "acting" was flat out incredible? The fact that he was not in the game longer is nothing more than one of the few missteps Ubisoft made in the game, especially considering they clearly knew they had something with him as a character to the point they put him on the cover.

He's one of the best bad guys I have ever seen in a video game. And Far Cry barely made my top 10 games of the year this year. He's the biggest reason it did.

I think the game was filled with great characters. Personally, I liked Buck the most. But Vaas was the most ORIGINAL, and the insanity factor made him funny, but scary at the same time. Sam was almost... Stereotypical.

I have not beaten the game yet, am mainly exploring. But Vaas is criminally underused and if they properly used him it seems it would have helped the end game which mostly everyone says fizzles out
