Top villainous characters in video games

There have already been countless lists of the best villains in video games in the past, and chances are there are no two that are alike. The characters cannot be evil by any sort of outside forces influencing them. If they had a rough childhood, if they are out for revenge, if they’re being forced by a more powerful villain.

Given is the list of the best villains from gaming universe.

Gannondorf from Legend of Zelda

He is most likely, if he was allowed to be more than a Teen rated villain and get a mature or unrated game, the greatest evil and closest depiction to Satan in behavior and methods as we can imagine. He would likely try to eat little children if he thought it’d afford him more power. He makes no distinction between young, old, civilian, soldier, or even those who are his own people, the Gerudo, who time and time again he has led into disaster simply to further the suffering in the world and destroy any who would dare raise a finger to stop him.

Bowser from Super Mario

Bowser is pure evil. His goal to repeatedly kidnap Princess Peach is only fueled by the hate and envy he harbors towards Mario. His army is a group of henchmen that he doesn’t give a damn about and he does not even flinch as he places them near the greatest pits of danger, lava, deep holes and is basically using them as a shield. He doesn’t care for any other life other than his own and Princess Peach’s. And he is only desperate to keep Princess Peach alive for the sake of seeing the anguish in Mario as he himself saves the ability to feast over her.

Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII

Sephiroth is the baddest villian of all time. He has been in two different game franchises and is always hardest to beat. And his sword is longer than any katana in gaming history. I mean the man has his own theme music when the chorus is an orchestra singing his name. Fight sephiroth in kingdom hearts 1 & 2 and tell me he isn’t the baddest ever.

GLaDOS from Portal

She starts off as a voice. You are absolutely clueless as to who or what she is. She makes you complete test after test. She makes you befriend an inanimate Object. And then makes you incinerate it. And you are probably sick of hearing it, but the cake was a big lie. She tries to incinerate you in a big incinerator.

Best men characters in video games

Who are the toughest, and greatest, lead video game characters ever? Not all videogame player characters are necessarily heroic, but we take their side anyway, because our fates are intertwined. The best video game characters immerse us in the story, and eventually gain our sympathy, even if they are anti-heroes or villains and the more badass they are, the more inclined we are to take their side no matter what, and the more powerful we come to feel in controlling them.

These are some of the top male characters in the video game world.

Master Chief

John-117 Master Chie is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Halo fictional universe, created by Bungie. Master Chief is a playable character in the series of science fiction first-person shooter video games: Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4. Outside of video games, the character appears in novels – Halo: The Fall of Reach, Halo: The Flood, Halo: First Strike, and Halo: Uprising.

Solid Snake

Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of Konami’s Metal Gear series created by Hideo Kojima. The Metal Gear Solid games has Japanese voice actor Akio Ōtsuka providing the character’s Japanese voice while actor and screenwriter David Hayter provides the character’s English voice. Snake is a combination of a spy, mercenary and special operations agent.

Batman

Batman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, as well as its associated media. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27. Originally named “the Bat-Man,” the character is also referred to by such epithets as the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, and the World’s Greatest Detective.

Kratos

Kratos, the Ghost of Sparta, is a fictional video game character from Sony Santa Monica’s God of War series, which is loosely based on Greek mythology. Kratos first appeared in the 2005 video game God of War, which led to the development of six additional games featuring the character as the protagonist. Kratos also appears as the protagonist of the God of War comic series and novels.

Top women characters in video games

Many of the best games of the year just so happened to feature some awesome women characters. It not just talking about the prototypical strong woman character although we love them and you will find a few of them are on this list as well, but an assortment of leading ladies who were interesting, fun to inhabit and ultimately human.

Given is the list of the best girl characters potrayed in video games.

Lara Croft from Rise of the Tomb Raider

Lara Croft. Yes, Lara is every bit the action hero that Nathan Drake is in his own adventures as a strong, badass woman who can climb sheer ice cliffs, hunt big game and mow down rooms of bad guys without breaking a sweat. The Rise of the Tomb Raider is a fine showpiece for Croft, with a perfect mix of action, platforming and heady puzzle-solving.

Ciri from The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 certainly is not bulletproof in its representation of women. Ciri has Witcher training, despite that particular profession only being open to men. She is treated as a young but capable person with her own agency and reasons for doing things instead of merely a motivating factor for dear old dad.

Evie Frye from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Evie Frye was significant not just for her in-game contributions, but as a testament to the industry’s overall push toward diversification. This veritable badass serves as a complement to Jacob, her twin brother and fellow playable lead. Evie is logical; while Jacob favors brawn, Evie is more stealth-oriented.

Undyne from Undertale

Undyne has an interesting trajectory over the course of the story. She starts out as one of your antagonizers, a fish-like monster that comes outfitted with armor and a bloodlust for humans. She is frightening and merciless, and she would not stop pursuing you until you defeat her in battle.

Best antivirus for gamers to use

Any gamer knows that bad anti-virus software is the bane of online play. It can create lag, freeze screens and crash systems. The repercussions are so bad that some hardcore gamers simply go without any security protection, opening their computers up to more attacks than those from the digital characters served up by their games. The best security software can run smoothly and quietly without disturbing game play using these tools.

Autopilot Mode

When you are in the middle of a nail-biting battle, a cliff-hanger cut scene or a critical junction in you digital puzzle, the last thing you want to do is minimize the screen and clean out an infected file. That’s why an Autopilot Mode is so important to a gamer.

Autopilot will run computer scans and clean up any infected items automatically, meaning you won’t be bothered with doing it manually. This service makes your computer safer too because threats are taken care of right away, not just whenever you get around to it.

All that Autopilot requires you to do is pick a day and time for the software to install updates and run scans. Then, you select the Autopilot feature and you’re good to go. Your security software will keep a vigilant watch while you play your favorite games.

Self-Defense Mode

Gamers are well aquatinted with the idea of self-defense, so the need for a Self-Defense Mode probably won’t come as a surprise. Self-Defense Mode gives security software the ability to protect itself from outside forces like hackers. Hackers won’t be able to turn off or destroy your protection software to leave your computer vulnerable.

CPU Lag

Lag is possibly the most hated word in a gamer’s vocabulary. One of the biggest culprits of lag is CPU-draining security software. Fortunately, not every anti-virus application creates lag. In fact, the best software uses very little PC processing power. This is good news for those who like to play games that need as much processing power as possible, like MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games).

Gamer Mode

Gamer Mode is like the Holy Grail of security-software tools. Switching on this mode before opening your favorite game will keep your security software running quietly in the background. You won’t be interrupted by downloads, scans, alerts or updates. Quiet usage means less lag and fewer crashes too.
