When Videogame Characters (Stupidly) Believe Bad Guys

Videogame characters aren't always the sharpest tools in the shed. In fact they can be quite gullible. If an evil-looking guy with a jagged facial scar and prosthetic leg limped over to us and maniacally cackled "Drink this!" and produced a bottle of liquid from his black duster, we'd be out of there fast. But when the same thing happens in a videogame, the hero dumbly agrees. Something has to get the plot moving, right?

Here are some of the most head-scratching instances of poorly placed trust in videogames.

is the character/s of GTA series. simply they just get ordered around and do stuff for other people then they get betrayed.

That doesn't mean they believe them, business it business and the truth means nothing.

EDIT: Ummm no, there is a difference in being forced to do something for someone to get what you want, and doing something for someone because you believe they will help you in return. In most GTA games, your forced to work with other people by other people. Where GoW games your on your own making your own decisions.

then it could apply to any character take for example kratos.. he knows he can't take zeus alone so he has to make deals with others to take him down. so business is business? and if we apply your logic then the article fails because the idea of business is business.

seriously i always believed that being crook themselves , they wouldnt be surprised at all when betrayed in a GTA .

And yet here they are acting as if there was some supposed honor code involved

HolyOrangeCows3079d ago

In the second Crash, you collect the crystals for Cortex.

I think that at least deserves honorable mention.

Nickster8003079d ago

is because they just wanna make some money, like in gta 4, and in some of the gtas there just trying to help their friends or family, like gta san andreas.

Kratos doesn't trust anyone. He just uses them, I'm sure he's fully aware that they can betray him at any time.

In GOW2, he had no choice but to accept Zues' assistance, Athena doesn't actually betray him. She just has an ulterior motive he wasn't aware of, he doesn't give her opportunity to betray him.

I don't believe he put any real trust in the Titans, either. They served there purpose and did a good job helping take Olympus.

in GOW 1, he believed that if he killed Aries because he would be abolished of the memories of his past, in addition to his own vengeance on the God of War. After the deed was done, Athena pretty much said...

"Aaaactually....I never said that you'd forget, just that we'd just forgive you. And we have. Geez, I don't understand why you're so mad...."

The mgs 2 bit is a bit silly to pick upon . he is given false memories and everything screamed genuine , especially to you the player , till a certain point .

And Kratos stopped trusting anyone after the ordeal with Ares and his family . he is just strung along constantly escaping somewhere , or having to follow a path in order to kill someone , or forgeing unholy alliances , knowing full well trust is out of the equation .
