10 Greatest Talkative Gaming Villains

WC writes: Things were much easier for heroes back in the day. Video game villains of years gone by would show up fleetingly in the introduction, normally to kidnap the nearest damsel, and then swagger back to their Secret Lair until the final showdown. Today’s evil-doers, on the other hand, just can’t help themselves — they provide a constant commentary on the protagonist’s progress, dispensing taunts and insults like your earpiece is their personal Twitter feed.

Sometimes this can be downright annoying, but there are villains whose barbs are so biting, their put-downs so perfectly delivered, that it’s an absolute pleasure to be goaded by them.

Just looking at that Shodan picture makes me want to play System Shock 2 again. For the twentieth time.

Do it! It's not like it's getting old, I mean it feels fresher than most crap we get today.

Still dreaming of a System Shock 3 reveal, just a black screen with Shodans voice and a title reveal, aah, that would be enough.

'Still dreaming of a System Shock 3 reveal'

Oh if only. I know Bioshock was the spiritual successor to the System Shock games, and it's been a great franchise, but like you I'm wishing for a sequel to the SS games.

With the tech they have now they could make it absolutely amazing.

Let's keep those fingers crossed aye.

Personally i would've had Saren/Sovereign from ME 1 on the list, but still a cool read.

Saren definitely deserves a spot on the list. He had an element of humanity to him. You could understand why he was doing the things he was, and even sympathize with him. And his voice acting was top notch with some really great lines.

This list could be better...

No Elder god or Kain from soul reaver? the dialog is the best ever put in videogames!
