Best Villain
« on: February 17, 2012, 07:02 AM »
Never quite sure where you want us to answer the weekly question from the cast vid magicman?

Anyway seems like a good topic for here. The question for those who haven't listened to this week's cast (shame on you  ;)) was who is the best video game villain of all time? (any format/type/genre/platform).

I can't recall (probably due to terrible memory) a lot of great villains and there is somewhat of a terrible sameyness about the villains in many of the games I have played (take over the world/galaxy blah, blah). I will therefore  go for a Ratchet and Clank villain because they have the great virtue (sorry to harp on this) of making me laugh - and I will choose Dr Nefarious (the name alone is stunning  :D) - although of course he wants to take over the world too!

Kefka Palazzo (Final Fantasy VI), Walter Sullivan (Silent Hill 4), Claudia Wolf (Silent Hill 3) and Umbrella Corp. (Rseident Evil) <WHY THE HELL DO YOU MAKE THOSE ABOMINATIONS UMBRELLA [other then for us to entertain ourselves~]
Those were the only ones that come to mind at the moment for me.

Im starting too think no one knows who Ocelot is...Cruel man who unleashed nuclear weapons upon innocents...Unleashed biological warfare upon people, and even worst...took control of the worlds weapons..and forced nations too fight. 

Resident Evil does not even compare. Your talkin about making stealth soldiers who are insane and kill anything in sight. Biological warfare too wipe out entire cities, on a scale the Umbrella looks like a kids game.

Kefka is not really a villain more of a mad man.. So he is not all there too begin with.

Walter Sullivan is up there however up there but..Ocelot...is just the top of it all.

MAY CONTAIN MAJOR SPOILERSFirst thing, I only know of Ocelot Revolver/Adam from MGS3.

Ok let's see... Soldiers that kill anything on sight or a Virus that will pretty much destroy humanity?
Then again they're two very different games.

Kefka in my opinion is one of the best FF Villains, they all talk big about getting powerful and destroying worlds, Kefka actually poisoned an entire Castle and actually becomes a God.

Walter can't top Ocelot in a million years.. but Walter's Otherworld manifesting itself is a pretty big thing at least on the eyes of the victim, he's set out to make your life a living Hell, locking you in your room, making your only escape through hell while he tries to kill you for a sacrifice which seems... useless (Revive the apartment.. aka Mother..?

And adding to MGS (This is from my personal Experience with the game) Volgin, he nukes a harmless Village, sure that's not pretty big to what Ocelot might have done... but with that little Nuke he pretty much sentenced my favorite character.. that's why he's a Villain in my eyes.

Then again this is just my Point of View.

Seawog busting out the Doctor Wiley! lol

Usually I gather feedback for the show from both the YouTube comments and the comments under the actual video on the MMOBomb site...however, seeing this I will have to poke my nose around more and gather from the forums as well! :)
Thanks!

Arcturus Mengsk, he saved the rest of the human race by giving in the 1 planet, so i would say he is a hero/Villain at the same time, therefore, making him the best Villain
