10 Devastating Video Game Betrayals You Never Saw Coming

WC: Betrayal and emotion isn’t something you’d expect to see in today’s video games; players are more after targets to spray with bullets and explosions in the background. Thankfully there are still quite a few developers out there producing games that are masterpieces with stories that will have you shaking your head in wonder. It was rather difficult compiling this list, as when I look at the vast majority of betrayal in games, it’s all rather clichéd.

Writers tend to use betrayal in games as a sort of plot twist in the hope you’ll stand up with your mouth hanging open and say “Like oh my gawd, I can’t believe you just did that” in your best L.A. accent. The problem is though, the vast majority of these twists and betrayals can be seen from a mile away and when they do finally occur, it’s terrible to watch them. In this article I’ll be exploring some of the better betrayals in video games, where I have actually been shocked when it occurs.

SPOILERS AHEAD! (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
