Gamespot - All Time Greatest Villian

Post by Thirdeyechai » Wed Aug 11, 2010 7:19 pm

So there is this "All Time Greatest Villain" poll on at Gamespot.

http://au.gamespot.com/greatest-video-g ... nav%3Bvote

And Thantos is in the Wildcard section. I was hoping we could get some support behind him?

I think he is probably one of the best villains in a video game i've ever encountered.

Anyway hope you guys can vote.

Cheers.

Voted. Though at 0.4%, equal to "The Unbeatable Pterodactyl" it isn't really looking hopeful.

If you go to "The Villains" > "The Full List" Kefka's there. These are just the wildcards to try and get one or two back into that main list.

Thanatos is evil but I think Julius was more evil than him.
Too bad Thanatos isn't gonna have any shot here though. XD

Thank you! Glad someone sees it my way. Julius just screams badass where Thanatos reminds me more of a Power Rangers villain

Yeah I even think the one place I like SwoM more than FFA is how they treated Julius. They made him seem more evil with the whole "hey my whole goal is to get a god to bow down to me" thing.

Though I really think the kicker for me in FFA was when Julius was the red mage who helped you out. That was neat. Also I totally thought I was gonna beat the game at Dark Lord first time I played.

Could be interesting to list out all the evil factions in the series, motives, and deeds.

The list needs to have the final boss from The Guardian Legend. No surprise it doesn't seeing how The Guardian Legend is the most underrated game of all time.

This poll is illegitimate..most of the people voting didn't start playing video games until Halo came out! >:( Then again what have I got to complain about, it's not like I'm doing anything to balance to odds.

As with so many "top x" lists and polls out there, it will always be down to the flavour of the month.
