Top 10 Video Game Villains

Everybody remembers heroes like Master Chief, Gordon Freeman, or Link but the antagonists in video games can be just as important to the storyline and enjoyability of the game. Sometimes villains can even steal the show and be more memorable than the main characters themselves. Here are the top 10 best video game villains of all time:

10) Lloyd

Lloyd from Legend of Dragoon is one of the coolest RPG villains. Although he was the main bad guy for much of the game, you later come to learn he actually had good intentions despite doing some horrible things. He's one of the ‘ends justify the means' type of guys. He's not actually straight up evil like some of the other characters on this list.

Lloyd is extremely powerful. The very first time your party encounters him, he actually kills one of your party members forever (I won't spoil who it is in case you've never played the game). This motivates your party to literally track him down across the entire world, though Lloyd always seems one step ahead. One time you catch up to him at a tournament Lloyd entered called the Hero's Competition only to face him in the finals. You can probably guess how that match turns out…

Lloyd probably isn't a villain that would make most people's lists but his silver hair and cool demeanor make him one of the more memorable antagonists for me.
