Top 10 Video Game Villains
10. Mr. Scratch (Alan Wake)
He’s truly a charming psychopath. Although enjoyable to watch, he doesn’t get much screen time so he’s only number ten.
9. Albert Wesker (Resident Evil 5)
He’s a very stylish villain and the boss fight against him is enjoyably challenging. Sadly me and my brother’s personal experience with the fight wasn’t great. The game glitched and we were unable to defeat him during the final part of the battle. So thanks to the bad memories, he only gets a nine.
8. Miraak (Skyrim)
A cool and intimidating villain, the fights against him is the best boss fight in Skyrim. Dragonborn’s disappointingly short story kept him from living up to his potential, however.
7. Paul Serene (Quantum Break)
He gets on the list for being a surprisingly sympathetic villain. He’s not really evil, he’s only trying to do what he thinks is right. It’s a shame the boss fight with him is so annoying.
6. Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)
A true classic, every gamer has at least heard of him. The reason he isn’t higher on the list is because I’ve never actually played FF7. I’ve only met him though spin offs like Crisis Core and Advent Children. I’m looking forward to fighting him in the remake, however.
5. David (The Last of Us)
A cannibal and possible rapist, David is terrifying because he’s just a normal human but seems like more of a monster than the infected.
4. Vaas (Far Cry 3)
He’s far more likeable than the protagonist, Jason Brody. He’s always fun to watch but sadly gets very little screen time. The QTE boss fight is lame, too.
3. Vergil (Devil May Cry 3)
He’s just as stylish as his brother Dante, just in a different way. I would gladly play a prequel game staring him.
2. Gravemind (Halo 2 & 3)
It’s a terrifying and grotesque monster, but oddly well spoken. As the leader of the flood, it’s minions can infect and destroy entire species. Shame you never get to fight it.
1. Pagan Min (Far Cry 4)
My personal favorite video game villain. He’s both hilarious and tragic. I only wish we could have sided with him from the beginning and helped him take down the Golden Path.
