Are there any games where you play as the villain?

I'd really like to see a game where you initially play "the hero" but something in the plot eventually reveals that you are in fact a villain and have been the entire time. How I would like to see this vary from titles I've seen this in before (no spoilers) is that even once the revelation happens, you stay the course.

Any games like this out there?

Darksiders you play one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. I'd call that a bad guy.

The main mistake you did there op is that absolutely EVERY answer you will get here will spoil the story of whatever game people here are talking.

Did it ever occured to you that maaaaybe , the fact that you play as the vilain might be the plot twist ?

This thread should be erased , if not for spoiler , at least for stupidity factor.
