My Top Antiheroes of all Time

Occasionally gamers are given the chance to control a protagonist that doesn’t care about anything and walks the gray line between good and evil. They fight because they’re either forced to do so or for selfish reasons and don’t care who they have to hurt to get want they want. (Darksiders 2, DmC: Vergil's Downfall, God of War, Infamous, Mass Effect, PC, Prototype, PS2, PS3, PSP, Shadow of the Colossus, Sonic, Wii, Xbox 360)

Kratos is the stand-out ultimate anti-hero for me.

It's not even subtle, NOTHING he does is good, literally every single thing you do in those games are for your own benefit, your own gratification and in some cases just outrages violence when one quick chop would have sufficed.

Can't beat a bit of GOW goodness to vent some steam, well, except maybe Mortal Kombat =P

We need more anit-heroes in gaming. I love playing as Kratos, how he is so direct and lets nothing in his way stop him. Good guys always take the long way round to avoid confrontation or to save 'innocents', meh, I'd rather kick the door down and kill everyone inside in a spectacular and brutal fashion, no other lead character does this as well as Kratos. He is so fun to play as and GoW is one of the games to play to relieve stress, or to vent steam as some say.

Should at the very least have called it "of this generation"
