The 12 most misunderstood videogame villains

All things considered, these 'bad guys' really aren't that bad

You know what? If F.E.A.R. was serious about psychopathic cannibal supersoldier Paxton Fettel being such a terrible guy, F.E.A.R. wouldn’t send the guy’s own brother to liquidate him.

Yeah, and you know what else? If Paxton Fettel was the deadly renegade he’s made out to be, his ultimate motivation would turn out to be a little more malevolent than looking out for his hard-done-by momma.

Shut up.
