There is no good without evil or yin without yang, although in the GTA saga it is not very clear which is which: although there is a protagonist and an antagonist, the truth is that sometimes it is quite complicated to know which of the two is really the bad guy of the movie (or rather of the video game). In any case, what is clear is that in every installment of the saga there will be an enemy that will try to get under your nose throughout your game. Luckily, and so that you can be prepared, we have compiled the five most frustrating villains of the saga so that you won’t be embarrassed to go after them. Let the plundering begin!
Before GTA IV, Darko sold all his comrades in exchange for black money. And, despite everything, you can’t help but understand his pain. He is a broken person, destroyed by a war (the Bosnian one) in which he saw the people he loved die. If, when the time comes, you decided to kill him, you will surely still have a heavy heart for that “Thank you” he mumbles just before hitting him with the first of the twelve shots in the head. And in the end, revenge solves nothing. As always.
It was the game that started the large-scale craze for GTA: San Andreas. And the hatred for Big Smoke is not for less: he is the first friendly face you meet in the city, your colleague… and the person who would betray anyone to get to the top. His crimes include drug trafficking and the murder of an innocent woman, all to get more money and power. When you finally manage to finish him off it is not the triumphant moment you expected, but leaves a bitter aftertaste. In the end, you loved to hate him.
Several of these enemies have reasons to be villains, but Devin Weston doesn’t need it. And that’s why he is, by far, the most infuriating of all: he is absurdly millionaire, he has money to do whatever he wants and he never stops bragging and believing that everyone (literally, everyone) works for him. The best thing that can happen to him in GTA V is to end up in the trunk of a car that ends up exploding. He won’t be missed.
He may not be the most remembered villain of the saga, but he is the most psychopathic and evil. The main antagonist of Vice City (voiced by the recently deceased Tom Sizemore) is an egomaniac who used Tommy for fifteen years and in the end doesn’t even regret it when he dies in his arms. The good part is that he doesn’t cheat: from the first minute he comes across as a manipulative, greedy madman who is best left to time to forget.
You knew this list was going to end like this, didn’t you? A corrupt cop running a small criminal empire and murdering innocent civilians to maintain his public image, how could we like him? San Andreas is a great game with a villain to match. An absolutely terrible human being who at the same time is the first person you meet in the city. Leaving him lying on the ground and making a reference to that first encounter is the best way to leave him behind forever.
