Great villains often have a textured, conflicted and almost likeable quality to them.

Father Comstock is a great example of such a villain as is Handsome Jack and Illusive Man.

The other type is someone who is really hate-able but these guys often come across as one dimensional. Vas from Far Cry 3 for example.

How in the flying hell did they not have Vaas??! One of the best Villains in gaming.

Yeah, I agree Vaas was one twisted bastard! But I tried staying away from using characters that are featured on almost every villains list, like Vaas. In my experience with Far Cry 4, I found Pagan Min to be severely demented and highly entertaining. I think he definitely deserves a spot on a villains list
