Top 5 Most Overrated Video Game Villains

In every list of video game villains, there are always a few who are placed way too high for reasons that seem to escape understanding. Some I think are just blown out of proportion, some I don't get at all, but let's get right to it, shall we? **NOTE: As I have been so advised, spoiler warning for Portal 2.

#1- GlaDOS

"What!? How can you say that!?" Like this, GlaDOS is the single most overrated villain/character/construct I have ever seen. Oh my, a murderous computer; yeah, not revolutionary, right HAL? "But the voice is so soothing and gentle and manipulative at the same time." No it's not. It's spitting out phrases that, well, are phrases. I mean I usually tune out when somebody comes over the intercom. "But the Companion Cube!" Screw the Cube, I'm glad I got to throw that thing out, it was annoying. I get that there was the whole psychology thing there, though, but it was all so flat. It's supposed to be some big shock that someone actually is trying to murder you, but if you didn't figure that out the first time you heard "No one is trying to murder you. I promise," well then I really don't know what to say. And for all the griping about Portal 2, I'll say this, Wheatley was a much, much better villain.
