This poll is now closed.
It can be a returning Antagonist, but they must appear in at least one title this Gen.

Glad to see GLaDOS made the list. She's certainly my favorite.


*edit*

I just want to say, I think a game can really be enhanced by a memorable baddy. For example, Far Cry 3 wouldn't have been half as fun without Vaas . . . and to a lesser extent, Buck.

I really wish more game developers would focus on creating iconic antagonists.

Voted Joker, almost did Other. Diablo is badass.

Scarecrow would be a great choice too. Batman has one the best rogues' galleries out there.

Speaking of "other," I think we had some great dark protagonists this gen . . .

Walker from Spec Ops: The Line and the rubber mask killer from Hotline Miami, anyone?

Why is Shang Tsung listed, but not Shao Kahn? He was the main antagonist of Mortal Kombat.

Yeah, I meant to put Shao Kahn there instead of Tsung.

He was atrocious to beat.

Glen Beck is winning . . .

I personally preferred the Illusive Man to Saren.
#9alienfreaks04Posted 2/2/2013 12:39:51 PM
While Glados is an awesome character, she's not a great antagonist. That's why I didn't vote for her.

My signature is better than yours.

GLaDOS beat Vaas by a millimeter.
