ChrisX’s Top 10 Disliked/Hated Video Game Characters

Hello everyone, this is ChrisX and…

… Well. This topic can be a rather touchy topic. Hated characters in video games.

Once upon a time, this was the shit amongst the Countdown Community.  Almost everyone had their own versions of ways to put on their rages on characters they do not like or just piss them off. Lately, no one seems to have made such thing and more or less they look like they’re more embarrassed than anything.

From what I saw, some included characters that were generally unpleasant and ‘were meant to be hated because they do a lot of inhuman atrocities’ as characters they hate… which is probably what the producers of the game wanted on these characters. But sometimes, a character just annoy or piss the hell out of you on a personal level for what they represent or how they were written in story. Maybe they just somehow hit you on the wrongest spots ever, or the way they were written just absolutely do not sit well with you. Are they too pointless in the story? It doesn’t matter if the character was meant to be hated or not, some characters just fricking rub you in the wrong way and you just can’t help to hate these characters.

So let me try giving a shot on this topic. And unlike many many times, let’s see if I can pull this off without flying into rage.

The usual rule apply, one character per franchise and only from games I’ve played. But before we start, please read these important points:

  • This list will contain SPOILERS! So if you are currently engaging with the games listed in the tags, well you have been warned. Tread with care.
  • This list is subjective and highly about my opinion. If you somehow like some of the characters listed here, don’t let it get to you. I won’t say your opinion sucks or you suck for liking these characters. This is just my opinion, not to be meant to be taken as fact.

Without further ado… I’ll try to limit my rage and let’s dig in into the video game characters I hate and want to punch in the face… I hope.

Top 10 Video Games For 2019

PREVIOUSLY ON CHRISX’S CORNER OF FICTION!


You should enjoy this kind of excitement from me for awhile. My next posts… are not going to be pleasant ones. Well, I dunno about spoiling or anything, but…

(VG Characters I hate/don’t like (title pending))


That’s what I said. True. But… do you know what time it is? It’s nearing the end of 2018, not to mention Christmas!

Talking about something negative like that during Christmas seems distasteful, so let’s talk about something else more positive. Since 2018 is almost at its end… let’s see what we have for 2019. As usual, the gaming scene is still going in strong, and honestly they do look promising. I’ve gotten some of the games I hyped for last years, some of them were really as good as I hyped, some of them… not so much. But enough about that.

Once again, I am going to list the Top 10 Games that I am hyped for in 2019. There may be repeats, because some of them got delayed into this year. But even so… Let’s just do this! Here’s my Top 10 Games For 2019, which might not fit well with the public opinion, but it’s still my own opinion!

Oh hey, it’s a reused picture, since this game is also gonna be released in 2019, but not in my list.

Editorial: ‘Reaction’ to Super Robot Wars T!

Hello, this is ChrisX. And gee it has been awhile and… Hmm? What is this?

Super Robot Wars? Now that’s a series I haven’t been around with. I don’t know, maybe the lineups didn’t interest me or something, or finally the abundance of Japanese overwhelmed the hell out of me. The last SRW I played was Super Robot Wars K. However, I had really fun times with these series. It introduced me to many wonderful mecha anime (Original Generation series is another story, and I LOVE them). Gameplay is simple strategy game, but you’re probably not in for that. You’re in for your favorite robot beating or blasting the shit out of your enemies, re-enacting some famous anime scenes, and hopefully fix some of them for a better end… Long story short, it’s a massive crossover that’s done right and awesome.

Lately, they have been making translation for the English language. Two games have been released, V and X, but it wasn’t enough to get me funked. This one, though? I’m funked as hell. You wanna know why? Well, I guess I’ll tell you as I ‘react’ to the images of the trailer and tell you what I think about what gets in there… You’ll see why I’m… well… trying to hold my excitement right here.

Character Spotlight – Sypha Belnades (Castlevania)

Hello and welcome to a new section within my blog. Well, I think back then I did one similar post for a Fire Emblem character. You can think of this as a spotlight post for characters outside Fire Emblem series. Maybe I’ll also integrate it to this more general Character Spotlight section.

bloodstained

Anyway, I’ve been playing Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, and it’s GREAT. It’s a throwback to Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse, one of the best Castlevania titles there is, even amongst the NES version, given even better quality of life additions (quick switching time is one of them) and retaining its fun. But speaking of Castlevania…

(Don’t worry. I’ll give my piece on the current state of Konami one of these days)

cv3cover

No doubt that when you speak of Castlevania, the first thing that comes to mind is the Belmont clan, and also… Alucard, who also debuted in Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse. But you know who else debuted in that wonderful game?

This certain character named Sypha Belnades.

Unpopular Opinion: Alas, poor Warcraft!

alas poor warcraft
Alas, poor Warcraft!

I knew it well, readers, a game of infinite epic, of most excellent experience… It hath borne me on many epic gaming and story hours; and now how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rims at it.

Here hung those epic, meaningful heroes that have been admired I know not how intense. Where be your great union now? Your peace-loving sorceress? Your anti-heroic undead mistress? Your image of a honorable Orcs and Horde, that were wont to set the common fantasy audience in awe? Not one now, to praise on your characterization and lore? The images have fallen. Now get you to Blizzard’s chamber, and tell them, let it be known that their new image of Warcraft is no longer one that I admired, and they can just hump on their new fans that just want to kill off one section; I want no part of it…

Make them happy at that… apologists-fest…

Top 10 Video Games For 2018

Hello everyone, this is ChrisX and today we are finally doing another countdown…

And it’s NOT about characters for once.

Yeah, the year 2018 is here, and to greet this new promising year (uh, I hope), let’s begin with a list of games that got my interest for this year. Yes, the future of video game is still pretty long and 2018 has promised a lot for gaming overall. Though I have a rather WEIRD taste that maybe not everything would be in-sync with many of you guys’ tastes. But I have to say it.

This list might not be permanently accurate forever, as we may see delays or that I don’t pick some games that has a rather vague release date, even around 2018. And for once… I’d like to try a new style for this post…

I’ll try not to be too much of a blabbermouth for each sections. Let’s see… 4 sentences at most per section will do.

Without further ado, let’s begin this countdown of…

Editorial: Is this the end of Sengoku Basara?

Hello everyone, it’s ChrisX again and welcome to a section I’d call Editorial. In this section… well, let’s say that I just take a look at a certain event within the gaming world, and give my comments about it. Perhaps it would involve some speculation or things like that. This is not meant to be a fact, let’s just say it’s just some of my opinions, thought this one probably might not be too unpopular. Unlike my other kind of post…

So let’s start this section with…

basara-almost-dead

Wow, that was a bleak title for one of my favorite franchises.

But it couldn’t be denied. As we entered the last stages of Playstation 3, the super fun, adrenaline-rushing Sengoku stylish action game Sengoku Basara series… is facing the dangers of getting killed.

Misc. Post: Liking Litchi Faye-Ling

Hello, everyone. It’s ChrisX. And… well, this is not a normal blog post. I’m not even sure how to even call it. It’s not a Character Focus. But this feels more like… a confession. Not a confession of how much I like the character, but more like… a confession about my journey of liking a character.

And how much of a rollercoaster of liking, hoping and despairing that came along with it and how much I did something that made me a target of ridicule and bullying, if you can even call it such, or bottom line… “Someone very annoying.”

So you can consider it like me coming out of my closet and revealing a lot of my dirty secrets. It involves this character from the BlazBlue series.

litchi2

Yes, you may have noticed that I put Litchi Faye-Ling into my Top 10 VG Combat Staff experts. To this day, I still think she’s the best one. But that’s not our focus, nor how I think she’s still the best BlazBlue female character and why she’s more than just the fanservice machine she’s known for.

This is not going to be pretty. Are you ready? Click on to know more…
