Oh the irony.

To label Joel as a villain is to miss the forest past the tree.

Humanity is very deserving of a slow death, and Joel is 100% hero.

That's the whole point.

Joel is no hero nor a villain. He just found his reason to keep fighting in that post apocalyptic world. Why should he give his reason to live to a group of delusional people to take Ellie's brain out and study the mutated virus? I really doubt the doctors could have done something in those conditions they were working on

And lets say they do manage to create a cure. Now how do you stop humanity from being cannivals and monsters? Something I realize while playing the game is that humanity is the real thread here. It's a welcome change in the survived genre as opposed to other games were the virus are the center of everything.

Any way you slice it, Joel handling over Ellie to the fireflies would have been a waste of life

Joel saved Ellie from getting her head chopped open. He's a hero in my book.

I consider Solid Snake the major villain of the Metal Gear Saga.

Liquid, Solidus, but especially Big Boss were the true real heroes.

Solid Snake is no villain but a puppet, while the other snakes fought for freedom.
