Just a thought but…
Ever cheered for the bad guy?
I mean yeah, sure… we all have those villains that we can’t stand, but we sure love to beat. Then there’s the type that you have a love/hate relationship with. And every now and then you find one you can relate to.. one that you can almost understand. For me, female villains come to mind. But, no matter what, finally, we all aim to beat the bad guy. But what about the bad girl? What about those female villains/bosses that made you so mad you threw your controller across the room while cursing your console. Yeah, we’ve all been there. Here’s my top 4 for the coolest evilest ladies in gaming. Most of these bosses/villains are just so kick-butt, I had to mention them. Pretty sure I’m not alone in this. I’m also sure you guys have a love for them too….not in any specific order by the way…
#1. Alma Wade: F.E.A.R.-
This chick is creepy! Every first person shooter/horror game lover was all about this game when it first came out. I loved it! I’m totally a first-person shooter/horror game kinda girl so this game is perfect for me. Alma was born with incredible psychic powers which caused her to have nightmares and soak in the negative energy from those around her. When she was 3 Armacham Technology brought Alma into a project called Project Paragon. From this point on she was tested on vigorously, trying to find the source of her powers…even using electroshock therapy. By the age of 5, she began failing her tests, hoping it would stop them from experimenting on her. She then started a fire in the laboratory, still trying to get free. It didn’t work but, after the fire, the scientists began having dreams of Alma attacking them. At 7 she was put into a medically induced coma and impregnated so that they could keep the research going. They took the babies as she remained in the coma. After they had got what was needed from her, they pulled the plug, and she died 6 days later at the age of 26. Alma has a lot to be angry about, and she want’s everyone in her path dead. She’s evil no doubt about it but… her story proves she didn’t start out that way. Here’s a clip of some of Alma’s scariest moments… watch it if you dare!
#2: Harley Quinn: DC….You knew she was going to make my list, didn’t you?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know a lot about this character. She’s crazy in love with “Mister J,” aka Joker… and I say crazy in love because these two make an impossible pair. As one might say love makes you do stupid things and as for Harley, that’s no joke. Joker never treated her well, and the more he pushed her away, the more she wanted to him. She is a playful, out of control character. It’s the side of a woman who has been beaten down by life as well as her man. She controls what she can. She’s a pleasant sort of crazy that keeps us wanting to see more. Now for some classic Harley Quinn….
#3. Sofia Lamb: BioShock
Sofia Lamb has taken over Andrew Ryan’s position, as leader of Rapture. Her ideas for the city are much different but her need for evil is even more intense. In the beginning, Ryan wasn’t looking to give up his position to her and tried to have her taken out. He sent out the spy’s to plant evidence on her that would have her locked up forever. Eventually, enough evidence was gathered, and she was sent to prison. After serving her time, she did not return to Rapture right away… though once she did she was able to gain control of the city, this time getting rid of Ryan. While in power she used the remnants of the run down city to promise a better future, a Utopia of sorts. This was all lies, and instead of helping the lost souls of Rapture… she tries to control them, getting rid of anyone that tries to stop her.
#4: Catwoman: Again… Had to include her too… How could I not?
Catwoman is probably my favorite female villain. To me, Michelle Pfeiffer played the most brilliant role of Catwoman ever!! The character was born from the Batman comics back in 1940 but has since then made her own mark on comic book history. She is secretly in love with the Bat, and he surely has a thing for her though the two never officially became an item. She isn’t picky with her victims, she doesn’t love hurting the innocent but, it’s just best to stay out of her way. She is the best at being sneaky and getting what she wants. Men can’t resist her, and she is always willing to do whatever it takes to better herself.
