In honor of Father’s Day, we decided to list the ten worst dads in video games. Perhaps this list will make you a bit more appreciative of your own father.
Forget a single episode on Maury, with all Zeus has done you could build a reality based network around him.
jayson jayson jayson jayson jason (press X) omg i hated that game ..[SPIOLER].....i think i helped him save the kid from the puddle...[SPIOLER END] but jesus wept one play through was more than enough. Ethan wasn't a bad dad really, but it was an annoying boring game with a LOT of plot holes, so i hated him anyway.
Lol at Ethan ;P
exactly, that's all we can do at him
Ethan went through hell and back to find his son. Ethan Mars is 1 HELL of a father, IMO! His 1st son's death wasn't really his fault and his second son's mishap was due to a blackout which was also, hardly his fault. In the end, he was a kickass father!
His son ran away because he wasn't paying attention, and he started having blackouts because of his neglectfulness towards his son that died, which caused his second son to be kidnapped. It's his fault.
He was a kickass father, depending on how you finish the game of course. If you for example decided not to go through those brutal trials, then you sucked as a dad. But some of those trials were pretty brutal to watch, like the one where you make him cut off his finger.
Yeah I agree with you. But Black Hulk just put him on the list for lulz. I just replayed Heavy Rain for the trophies and Ethan was a great father. Just very unfortunate.
@Arnon That's a sadly tragic situation where no one should be at fault. If you're going to blame someone blame Jason for running in front of the car like a moron.
His son was the retard, what the hell was he doing?
Ethan was? He takes his son to a park and blacks out till night time? That doesn't sound like a kick ass father to me.
Lol @ Arnon blaming the father. Ethan was an excellent father IMO. He went through hell and back to get his son back. Thinking about Heavy Rain now, I should play it again.
Yeah, Ethan was a hell of a dad the way I played him. Scott's dad, on the other hand, was a POS.
Scott Shelby's dad in Heavy Rain was terrible too lol. Too drunk to save his own son!
Yep I would have definitely chose him instead of Ethan. At least Ethan tried to save his sons.
Spoilers, dude. I've beaten the game as well but still, some haven't and my experience was ruined by a villain list that didn't say spoilers and spilled the beans as to the identity of the Origami Killer.
It's been a really long while since Heavy Rain came out. If someone has managed to avoid finding out who the killer is for this long, I'm sure they're actively avoiding any possible spoilers, which would mean any article that has a hint of Heavy Rain and its comment sections.
Mi bad. That was pretty douchebag of me
Yeah, if you haven't played Heavy Rain by now, you kinda deserve to have it spoiled. The game came out more than a year ago. After 6 months, I stop caring about possible spoilers.
I always worked under the assumption that when budding pokemon trainers were young, an evil organisation ordered hits on their fathers, hence why they were never around.
I think all fathers were either gym leaders or part of an evil organization
Glad the writer remembered Brock's dad in the anime. As soon as I hear 'Pokemon dads' I just think about that guy selling rocks for no damn reason 40 foot from his abandoned family. Just....what.
Thats the conversation we had while writing the article. And I said the SAME THING. Rocks? What?!
''By the way,thats a $2 charge for resting on my rocks!'' He was a mean bastard too.
You see your dad in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire
And thus why I said screw you Norman. Why did he help wally catch a pokemon not not help me out. I would have glady taken a vigiroth as a gift.
"Not to mention that in the Anime, didn’t Brock have a father who left them to sell rocks?!?" Brock's Dad was a dope man xD
Lol i thought i was the only one who thought that.
look how retarded he caused Tidus to be.
LOL! Now, I love Final Fantasy 10. But that's pretty funny. :)
to Tidus defense, his balls dropped around 75% in the main game or so. He stopped laughing like his balls were tied around his neck and finally let his vocal chords throw out a hint of post-pubescent sound.
Mao's dad from Disgaea 3.He breaks Mao's Slaystation Portible(It was really called that!) causing him to lose a 4 million hour save.
I think Ethan Mars was a good father. He went through the Saw movies just to get that whiny twerp back.
As much as Kratos was neglecting his family, he still loved them. In Chains of Olympus he even gave his powers to be with his daughter, even though it was a trap.
List doesn't include Andrew Ryan -> List fails. Would you kindly just remove this list from existence?
"Also forming the core of Sin, and almost destroying the world of Spira is a little douchey too" He didn't know exactly though, but yeah what a flat character that was.
Lol this is an epic article XD
I laughed pretty hard at them calling Mario a hitman.
What about the dad in Earthbound? Talk about a dead beat... Never there except to give his kid insane amounts of money for killing troubled hippies?
LOL Zeus XD And don’t even get me started on Kratos. Zeus messed him up so bad he decided to go out and murder him
JAAAAAAAASSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOON! JASON! JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSOOOOOOOOOO OOOOON!
HEY ADD MY DAD TO THAT LIST, HES EXTREMELY BAD A VIDEOGAMES....
