Ten hated videogame characters that I secretly like photo
Ten hated videogame characters that I secretly like
by Chad Concelmo

While many videogame characters are beloved around the world, there are a handful that are reviled by a large majority of the gaming population. And, to be honest, “reviled” may not even be strong enough a word. I know some characters that will result in near riots of anger if even mentioned.

Some of these hated characters I agree with -- I will easily grab my torch and pitchfork in violent protest as well! -- but others I think are given a very bad rap.

While I have always whispered my fondness for these misunderstood characters while playing alone, I am now ready to stand up and declare to the world my love for these most hated of characters.

I am not ashamed anymore.

Too Human finished ... may God have mercy on us all

It appears as if Too Human's long and painful development has finally been put to rest and, presumably, Denis Dyack can go back on his meds again. That's right, Too Human is gold and ready to go. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the (...

Conflicted about how to show your love? Give her The Heavy!

That sounds infinitely more perverse than I intended it, but it's too late now. Thanks to the talents of graphic illustrator Alexandra Neonaki, showing the geek guy or gal in your life that you heart them is as easy as hittin...

The Memory Card .17: Hover bike madness!

Although they may have gotten more complicated and deep over the years, videogames have definitely not become more challenging. Not to say that is a negative thing by any means, it is just hard to compare the tu...

BBC thinks that games are serious business

I was totally unaware that the BBC got owned in the face when it was revealed that a number of its phone-in competitions were fakes. That's hilarious, especially as the good old British Broadcasting Corporation is a huge pile...

Your Xbox 360 looks like a rice cooker

It's been called a gigantic mouse, a pregnant wii, and the new MAC. But what is it really? I wish it was a fuzzy logic Japanese rice cooker/Xbox 360 combo, but it's just a concept replacement chasis called "Ovo&...

The guilty pleasures of gaming

The word hardcore when applied to gamers tends to paint a picture of a person who plays games like Halo, Grand Theft Auto, and Gears of War, not someone who sits with his little Nintendo DS and plays hours of Cooking Mama or ...

Tetris is keeping women in the kitchen (update)

Doctor Freud would love feminists because they seem to be as obsessed with penises as he was. Mighty Ponygirl over at Feminist Gamers recently wrote a piece about how Tetris is a sexist game. I wasn't sure if she was kid...
