"With Breaking Bad‘s finale over and done with, we’d like to look back on all our favorite morally ambiguous heros and heroines from gaming. Like Walter White, many characters begin with noble intentions but slowly find themselves unveiling their darker side.
Videogames are no stranger to this downward character arc. Nearly all mature titles now showcase antiheroes in grim settings, struggling with their surroundings and themselves. Grand Theft Auto V is a recent, good example. Actually, any Rockstar game is a good example.
Gone are the days of wholesome, Superman-like heroes. Fiction is now full of flawed cowboys, lovable hitmen and paternal meth cooks. And we couldn’t be happier.
Here is a short list of some of our favorite antiheroes from gaming’s past and present. Feel free to comment and mention your own favorites. And if you disagree with us, all we ask is that you tread lightly." - Pixelitis Staff
