WC writes: Videos games work at their best when the player is presented with a clear protagonist for them to root for and get emotionally invested in. We, as gamers, love a good hero.
On the other hand, a great video game villain can fuel the gamers desire to triumph just by simply being good at being bad.
This list, however, goes beyond that. This list looks at the video game characters that perhaps aren’t great villains but are, in fact, just jerks. The characters that are there just to annoy you, just to make your blood boil, just to make you rage quit. Characters who may not necessarily have a fantastically diabolical plan, if any plan at all. Some of the characters found on this list may not even be bad guys within the game itself but trust me, they are all most definitely douches.
