"You think your life sucks? These folks have had it worse."
I really hate articles that you have to go between pages instead of grouping content together. I actually read the list, and I'm surprised Solid Snake isn't on there.
I hate the exact same thing, it makes me feel as if they just want views which is why they force us to keep going through it, rather than scrolling down for content. Furthermore, Solid Snake has probably one of the shittiest lives ever in gaming history. He could easily replace Sam Fisher.
Solid Snake should definately take one of the top spots. And to save others the time, this is their list: #10 Isaac Clarke #9 Max Payne #8 Adam Jensen #7 Alex Mercer #6 Lee Everett #5 Tiny Tina #4 Jim Raynor #3 Captain Price #2 Illidan #1 Sam Fisher I'm also missing Kratos, this list is kinda strange.
Seems like the author plays Dudebro games almost exclusively.
No Ethan Mars? His life was completely destroyed and if you get the bad ending for his story arc it's just tragic.
My thought aswell, the worst ending you can have for him is the most tragical ending I've ever seen.
^agree. When I saw this icon I thought 'if ethan mars isn't on there then ill be amazed. SPOILER ALERT FOR HEAVY RAIN His kid died He split up with his wife He obviously lost his job and now lives in a sh*tpit His other kid gets kidnapped He is being accused of the person who kidnapped his son. Sorry but good ol' cap'n Soap didn't have it no where near as bad as Ethan.
What, no Kratos? No Big Boss? No Solid Snake? No Raiden? Extend the list.
Let's not forget Wander (Shadow of the Colossus) and Gabriel (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow).
About 80% of the mgs characters hard a life you would think is hell.
Thanks for the share. Here's my own list: 1) John Marston (Red Dead Redemption) - His past crime, his effort to redeem himself, and his ultimate fate. 2) Isaac Clarke (Dead Space series) - Being involved in multiple Necromorph outbreaks. 3) Kaine (Nier) - Being mistreated by numerous people due to certain issues. 4) Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid series)- Condemned to fight and being manipulated despite his lifespan issues 5) Max Payne (Max Payne series) - Many, many deaths happened to his life. 6) Jill Valentine (Resident Evil series) - Involved in several zombie outbreaks and other outbreaks as well. 7) Main Character (Persona 3) - His ultimate fate in the True Ending. 8) Any characters with the Atma Virus (Digital Devil Saga series) - Have to devour other humans to survive. 9) Raiden (Metal Gear Solid series)- Rough childhood, torture, and the loss of his human body. 10) Lee Everett (The Walking Dead) - His survival against zombies, his past crime, and his ultimate fate.
P3 ending (Thr true ending, i think its that) Was a mix of happiness and sorrow. I really never got attached to a game like that before.
Kratos should definitely be on this list.
what about Luigi?
Joel from The Last of Us definitely should be there
the guy you play from far cry 3 didn't exactly have it easy
Max Payne he had it the worst in my opinion.
Kaim from lost odyssey should be on the list. He was an immortal that experienced lots of suffering if you read all of the thousand year dreams. One of them he was imprisoned and he used to purposely get himself taken to be tortured for a change of scenery because he was going stir crazy.
Princess Peach /s
what about Roman Bellic?
Max PAYNE should have beed much higher like 4 or 5 at least... and yeah this should have been top 100 Game Characters Who've Had It Real Bad.
InFamous spoilers below Some good examples from the comment section. I think Cole MacGrath also got it quite bad, from accidently killing thousands with the ray-sphere to seeing his girl-friend die and his best friend betray him. Not to mention the fact that his mortal nemesis was an older version of himself from the future and the fact that he was going to battle an unstoppable monster set on destroying everything. That was all from the first game. In inFamous 2 he goes through just as much crap particularly when the Beast destroys his hometown and when he has to make a decision whether to sacrifice himself in order to save the humans or sacrifice the humans to save the conduits.
