5. Resident Evil 6
Poor President Adam Benford. It’s not his fault that he exists within the greater Resident Evil universe. Given the egregious shit-storm he’s thrown into, it’s impossible to say whether he’d really have been a good or bad President in normal circumstances. But he did hire Leon to the Division of Security Operations, so he’s at least got good taste in… floppy-haired, suplex-ready security operators? Yeah, there’s that. Important factor in a presidential campaign, that one.
Unfortunately for President Benford, he was the guy who ultimately decided that it was time to tell the public about the whole US-government-nuking-Raccoon-City thing, after an entire game series built around keeping that sort of thing top secret for about 18 years. Well, that and the occasional, unrelated dalliance with rescuing unrelated President’s daughters from dubious Spanish rural types. And zombies. Always zombies. But either way, total shit-storm for President Benford. That’s the main point here. And speaking of zombies, any guesses as to how Benford shuffles off this mortal coil? Yup, he becomes a brain-chewer, and his floppy-haired security guru has to put him down with a bullet to the brain. Once more: Poor President Adam Benford. Poor corpse-faced, rotten-smelling, shot-in-the-face President Adam Benford.
