Top 100 Videogame Villains- IGN

IGN writes, "According to Batman, criminals are a superstitious and cowardly lot. Apparently he's never played a videogame. The bad guys in games are usually the last thing stopping the hero from getting the girl or saving the world.

They typically don't run away, and they are often the ones setting nearly insurmountable obstacles for heroes to, well, surmount. Even after the heroes run their gauntlet, the villains are ready for a throwdown."

The story is too old to be commented.

Zeus, I`ve never wanted to kill a character model so bad and he definitely got what he deserved.

HolyOrangeCows4643d ago (Edited 4643d ago )

Honestly, he didn't seem like a villain at all by the end of GOW3. Zeus was talking about cleaning up the mess that Kratos was making, and Kratos was killing everyone to kill someone who was trying to restore order.

I didn't really care for GOW3's ending (or story in general) at all.

MariaHelFutura4642d ago (Edited 4642d ago )

I`m not just talking about GOW3, from GOW2 he deserves his @ss kicked hard and he got that in GOW3.


And no Zeus and Aries screwed Kratos over hard and the symbolism of everything getting destroyed in GOW3 is to portray how much he wants to kill him, regardless of the consequences. BTW, Have you played GOW:COO? the end is amazing, if you`ve played it you know what I`m talking about.

"and Kratos was killing everyone to kill someone who was trying to restore order"

No GOW1/2 for you obviously, you should play them. Great games.

Uh, yeah I have played GOW1/2 (Via the collection). He may have been villainous in those, but he didn't seem as evil in the 3rd one. Not compared to Kratos. Kratos killed pretty much everything, even those who were trying to help him. And after 8-10 hours of GOW3, I wasn't thinking about what happened in the first two as much as in the 3rd.

"the symbolism of everything getting destroyed in GOW3 is to portray how much he wants to kill him"
....well it should have portrayed the issues of revenge. But the story decided not to touch on that and took a turn to a message about the "hope" being inside him. Then he returned the "hope" to the people....but what people? The earth was flooded, full of disease...

And what part are you talking about that was "amazing" at the end of Chains of Olympus?

I agree HolyOrangeCows

I didn't like the part about the Hope. The world was already in chaos, so you couldn't even imagine there was people alive. They should have just gone for the revenge of Kratos, and having rise to a most powerful being on earth who killed the gods.

They didn't even use the Titans correctly IMO, they aren't even there. Kratos ask for their help to kill the gods, but he ends up killing them himself, so why were the titans for?. then kills them too!, and some titans are killed in the first 5 mins! with ONE hit! LAME!

By the end of GOW 2 I was imaging that the 3rd game would be an epic war between the titans and the gods, and that the gods would give kratos a hard time to be beat them, (hence the help of the titans), but after all, some gods fell in 2 mins, even without Kratos doing anything!

Nevertheless, the game was awesome, and epic, but definitely not the game the ending of GOW2 makes you to believe it would be.

I have to agree, beating Zues' face in at the end was imensly satisfying.

and there are some memorable villains. It brings back some memories of classic games.

I just couldn't believe no 1. Bowser deserved that spot imo.

seij5554643d ago

Bowser is a fucking joke, all he does is kidnap Peach. THATS IT. Maybe if he raped her on a consistent basis and did shrooms or something, I would consider it but he is a lame ass villain.

Solidus187-SCMilk4642d ago

maybe it made you think he would get it. Hahahha.

Acquiescence4642d ago

Where the hell is Lan Di?! Everyone hates him, especially since he essentially got away with all his evil deeds. And he's nowhere to be seen on that list. Inconceivable.
