Worst game characters last gen (PS3/360/Wii)

Post by TripOpt55 on Sun Mar 09, 2014 6:32 pm

Hey guys. I am thinking of doing a small March Badness bracket like I did with TV characters last year but for game characters, specifically those from last gen (PS3/360/Wii) to kind of go alongside my Best of 7th Gen features. I was hoping to get some help from you guys picking the entries.

So if anyone feels like throwing out some of the worst characters from last gen that'd be cool. I was currently thinking of including these, but am going to delve into my catalog of games and look harder:

Nix (Infamous 2)
Zeke (Infamous 1)
Rico (Killzone 2)
Ellen Page (Beyond, was thinking of including 4 different ones in each region just to be a total dick)
Connor (Assassin's Creed 3)

If anyone is up for helping me out with this I'd appreciate and would credit you guys for helping me out in the blog. Plus there are obviously a lot of games I haven't played, so that would help. This thread can just be a spot for us to complain about terrible characters as well.

Dante from the DMC reboot seems like the most obvious. How to turn a lovable fun character into an edgy tryhard for 15 year olds - By Ninja Theory

Lamar from GTAV easily up there as one of my most hated characters in anything ever. He's such an insufferable twat and the way he spoke throughout all of his scenes made me take a brick to his face.

Lightning from FF13 pisses me off.

Lightning didn't bother me as much as Hope always bitching, or Vanille being so fucking stupid, or Snow always being so peppy. Fuck, what happened to Square making good characters?

Sazh and Fang were the only interesting characters. His name was Sazh right?

I totally agree with the people above: the cast of Final Fantasy XIII except for Fang...who was awesome.

The girl who rummages through the trash in Deus Ex...I mean, it's cool Deus Ex doesn't shy away from race but DAMN.

War from Darksiders.

Vega from Mass Effect 3 - He's not even an awful character but to introduce him in the final game when the stakes were so high was a huge mistake.

I liked the cast from the FFXIII games, its story though not so much.

NO character will ever compare to how bad Emil from Tales of Symphonia 2 is. God i hate that fucker so much. The opening battles are actually affected by how much he sucks. Slow movement, no Artes, slow awkward attacks that cant combo. He's also a whiny emo bitch. Ugh.

Hope definitely belongs on there. Here's a few of my picks

Udina (Mass Effect)- Even Vega's likable, but Udina? Fuck this guy, wanted to punch him so much more than that reporter.

Fi (Skyward Sword)- At least Navi didn't talk that often and told you in a helpful way. Fi interrupts all the time with "Master, I believe there is an 85% chance swinging your sword hurts enemies." Fuck that

Roman (Grand Theft Auto IV)- "Hey Nico, want to play darts?" Nuff said.

Desmond (Assassin's Creed series)- Shouldn't need to explain this one.

Someone from Tomb Raider- Didn't like too many people in this game, but Trip knows it better than me. Just here as a reminder.

If Pokemon can count, then I vote Garbodor to be on there. Fuck that thing.

Roman and Desmond are both worthy additions. Stupid Desmond...what a lame character.

Everybody in GTA4 except the Irish guys and that black guy who got out of jail. I'll give Brucie a pass, too, but only because he was hateable in a way that made it fun to kill him every time he wanted to hang out

I agree with Nix; inFamous 2 is the first game that I'll admit to not caring about the cut scenes.

I don't think I'd put Donte on here either. I get if you weren't interested in that interpretation of him, but having not played much of DMC before I thought he was a fine character. Nothing brilliant, but he kept me interested in the story and had a few cool moments, which is good enough

Same here. I never really paid attention to Devil May Cry and the new Dante was fine. I went in expecting him to be annoying, too

Yeah, I honestly expected the worst after that "Fuck you" cutscene in the demo, but even that wasn't really bad in the context of how cheesy everything was.

I was fine with Dante. Thought they did a worse job with Vergil to be honest.

I'd probably go with either the black chick or the nerd from the TR reboot over Lara, but if I do the bracket I'm wondering if going with bigger characters would be better for more recognizability or whatever.

I'd add Jihl Nabaat from FFXIII to this list. They wasted such a gorgeous character design (and amazing rack) on such a minor character who you barely twice see then dies.

Donte wasn't bad he's certainly not Dante, but he's certainly not awful either. They did some cool things with him and some dumb things with him i think it all evens itself out in the end. Much like the game itself.

I got another one: the princess from Sonic 06. Why would you have a human make out with Sonic?

This.

It's a joke that since she's Toriyama's waifu, he pushed for her and she ended up with that terrible dress-up simulator rather than something that is even remotely enjoyable.
It's even more of a joke that people actually bought it because "Muh stoic and tough beauty<3!".

Knowing he wants her in future FF games only makes it even worse. We already had to put up with an entire fucking gen of nothing but XIII shit, just let it die already.

No, I haven't. But it doesn't matter whether I have or have not because my point was that if you ignore that he's different from the past Dante, like we were able to completely, he's not a bad character at all.

Well, you should.



I don't think so, he seems like an intolerable piece of shit whatever way you look at him from the demo, trailers and gameplay sections I've seen, as do all of the characters. Either way it sold terribly and Ninja Theory had to resort to making iOS games while photoshopping Uncle Dante into images of brokeback mountain while still trying to convince themselves they didn't care what people thought about DmC so chances are we'll never see Donte every again.

I honestly don't care what you think about the game or whatever go ahead think it's shit.

The minute you start making generalizations about everyone who bought the game. Yes of course EVERYONE only bought Lightning Return's cause "ZOMG SHE'S MAI WAIFU" no one actually enjoyed playing it they just fapped to it. Especially one of my friend's from twitter who's completely gay and can't stop gushing about how much he loved the ending.

Just because people like something you don't doesnt make them sheep or idiots or "a joke" just fucking stop. If you don't like the game go ahead tell us all how its so shitty, but don't go on about how its fans are idiots for enjoy it. You're just starting shit then.

Funnily enough, it's worked for all of the friends I've met so far. I wouldn't really want to be friends with people like that to begin with either, so it works for me.

I never said everyone bought it for that reason too, just that some people did. I actually know some who did.
It's kind of difficult to believe that you're not one of them when you called me out and with that reaction. I got the exact same response from those I mentioned.

I'd have probably given DmC a fair chance even with the atrocious butchering of the characters if the combat wasn't horrifically dumbed down and running at half the frame rate despite looking absolutely terrible. I'm okay with a game that's only offering downgrades in even the gameplay department not appealing to me.

And Infinite is shit.

Maybe you should read what I said. I never once played the game DmC itself. I get the dumbing down, it felt way too easy and simple for me compared to Bayonetta or Ninja Gaiden, and the 30 FPS was a let down. I personally just think it's good, not great. This whole time I have been talking about Donte, nothing more, nothing less. And it is absolutely that scenario, otherwise you would have given a legitimate reason in your original post rather than say how he's different from original Dante then a criticism that didn't even come close to matching what the character was like.

It's just an opinion. I'd post something much more ridiculous if I was trying to cause shit but that's what I'd prefer you did, so it's fine.

Although, it does seem that you don't respect them enough to hold back from making the post that started this!  8)

Nope, haven't played DMC3. It appealed to me about as much as the reboot did, partly because the videos I watched made it look silly, and Dante's character design looked like it was made by a focus group of the teenage girls of the time. Now, I could argue that he's a bad character based on that, but that would be silly considering I haven't played the game

I nominate the dude from Lone Survivor for the worst character this gen. Because he's an idiot and his idiocy destroyed all hope of the game being enjoyable for me
