What video game characters had the hardest lives?
I need more people who deserved it.
>I think I can finally do it. Blow my fucking brains out all over this goddamn cave.
Plus he can benchress approximately 600 tons
Meanwhile Snake busts his ass saving the world time and time again and gets nothing for it but an early death, and not even the heroic soldier's death in combat that he deserves
I do too, Saber deserves nothing less.
Other than a few pantomime villains, I can't think of any for the Fate series.
It suits me fine though since I like bleak stories.
these two didn't deserve it.
Nerevar and his already hard and fucked up life that was finally getting better ended with him being back stabbed by his best friends and wife and them going against everything he stood for.
all dem newage game characters. die in a fire, kid
To be honest, I don't think he deserved such a shitty end. Him getting slapped by the police for having an affair, maybe.
But his death felt just unjust.
Close casket funeral could also mean he survived and we will get L.A. Noire 2
>last of his species and is doing his damnedest to preserve or revive it
>aligns himself with people who could do either who promise to do so
>none of them intend to back that promise and try to kill him when he asks then to honor that promise
>becomes a complete broken shell in 5
>is possessed by a dragon god in 6
>killed off in 7
This guy had a pretty long and horrible existence and deserved everything until
he redeemed himself
Can someone post a screen-cap of his notes ?
I've only looted his body (if I remember well.)
Maybe in MP3, which I haven't played yet.
The Sniper was shot after being abandoned by his parents for the second time.
>the fag that always tries to start shitstorms
Shadow has to deal with fakers all day long
This guy signed for a new neat job, then went straight to hell for the rest of his life. He had no rest whatsoever too
He is a prick in F/SN but his backstory (The Epic of Gilgamesh) goes a long way to justify it.
Well Noire stories traditionally end with the main character's death. But he died a hero, so that's something. Mainly the hardness of his life came from the results of his affair which was 100% his fault.
He doesn't harm humans and he obeys the orders given to him by Doctor Light.
Granted he doesn't do a good job at preserving his own existence jumping into spikes all the time, but since that's in the process of Doctor Light's orders it's still not a conflict.
Also Mega Man's not an Asimov character.
This guy is definitely somewhere in the upper right corner
>Angry and jealous whole life
>Replace your body and organs with metal just to fuck with the people you hate forever
>Die after couple millennia to the person you hate the most, ruining your life's work
>Body parts stripped and used by gangsters and druglords as mere production tools.
>no melia from xenoblade
she watched her father and brother die right in front of her, her mother tried to assassinate her, her sister hates her guts, her entire race is near extinct, she gets the worst AI in the game, and she doesn't even get together with shulk
life literally punched her in the face, then raped her while stabbing her in the back
idk, if you only count HL1 i guess
but when you're put to sleep and awoken years later in a fucked up world where everybody counts on you to save the day when you just barely survived an alien invasion on your own... I don't want to live his days in black mesa, but i don't want the rest either really. His life fucking means nothing to him by the end, the games don't mention anything about his family and whatnot but he probably lost everything except 2 or 3 coworkers who still can't do shit without him. His whole life is a toy to the gman
>Tryed to save his kingdom even his friends are just too stupid and without balls to do what you have to do
>Get corrupted and be know forever as a Traitor
>OP's image is full of "HYPER-REALISTIC CHARACTERS" that all have the same style
>Nobody jumps on it secret bait
> she doesn't even get together with shulk
Even the girl who was initially rooting for her and shipping her with Shulk abandoned her. At least she can legally marry two guys to comfort her.
>Implying he wasn't right with the meatlocker
>He knows when he's wrong when he gets angry, and apologizes
>His autistic son went zombie and his wife shot herself
>Not caring about this
And he has to drown out his sorrows somehow
Sugar Loaf, Ira burning ciivies. Afair was just the topping.
He tried to redeem himself by being the best and honest cop but couldn't win against corrupt criminals.
And not every Noire ends with character's death. At least not as hamfisted as LA Noire has done it.
Her entire race being genocide-ed in front of her plus the fact she was NTR'd by shulk kinda pushes her into "hard life" territory.
She was raised as a princess before any of that though, so maybe she qualifies as having "the shittiest couple of days possible."
Time-frames in Xenoblade get weird though. You can actually spend years of in-game time doing sidequests and shit, but the plot never advances past a week or two.
>not a single smt character
>She was raised as a princess before any of that though
Forced to wear a mask in public and being nearly exiled alone in her own villa. Her best friends were her guards and she hated her father until he died.
Gabriel Belmont. His life is fucking horrible.
Where is the gender equality? I don't see any womyn there.
>Post telling someone to die in a fire over vidja characters.
>Written by man over 20.
>Can see Clockwerk lurking in the background sometimes during levels
>He's even in the stone age chapter
THAT IS NOT EVEN REMOTELY POSSIBLE
She didn't deserve getting converted into Zerg but after killing the Overmind, she deserved anything she got. Problem is, she got nothing. No just deserts for killing millions, for betraying and murdering heroes, she didn't even use the opportunity to kill Mengsk and partly redeem herself. Kerrigan deserved a lot more than she got but Blizzard's bad writing put "muh waifu" ahead of every sense of poetic justice.
>save the planet from demons
>get banished for saving the planet from demons
>save the planet from demons again
>get exiled from saving the planet from demons
>get chased and then banished for trying to save the planet from the dead
>gets killed for trying to defend himself from demons
Illidan did mostly nothing wrong.
We know James had a shitty day, but did he deserve it?
Doubtful. The way time travel has been shown so far is that history can be altered to impact the present, and that there are no stable time loops such as what you are suggesting. In other words, history played out the way it did "before" time travel happened in the present, and then the present-day time travel allowed events to occur that didn't originally happen; everything that history was known to be before time travel was developed is the way it originally was without time travel's influence.
Difficult to say. Don't his motives change depending on the ending? Like, either he did it because Mary was a burden on him, or because he didn't want to see her suffer.
He could go right on the line like Cole.
How do Sam Fisher/Ezio deserve it less than Payne? They're both career criminals who chose their path, Fisher could have had a desk job and Ezio could have stopped after having his revenge
Well how the hell else will he get his bionics? Remember, due to Thieves in Time easter eggs he is alive (or at least has presence) as far back as the stone age. When an evil mechanic with a the possibility of time travel flitting around that is the most reasonable answer.
>being a government agent/soldier makes you a criminal
Jackie Estacado should be way down bottom right.
>Orphan, gets picked up by a lunatic mobster and raised to be a hired killer for the crime family
>Uncle decides to turn on Jackie and calls a hit
>Is a host for The Darkness, who wants complete control and obedience and the Angelus wants him dead
>Crime family shoots his childhood friend and girlfriend in front of him while The Darkness makes him watch
>Finally suppresses The Darkness
>The Brotherhood come and fuck up everything else in his life so they can control The Darkness
>Darkness uses his girlfriend's soul as leverage as it's bound in hell
>He finally overwhelms and tricks The Darkness and frees his girlfriend's soul
>She's the fucking host for the Angelus
Why does there need to be an explanation that requires Penelope? Nobody had any issue with an immortal owl prior to Thieves in Time, so why does it suddenly now need an explanation? Isn't is possible that he found incremental changes as history went on, and even replaced inferior robotic parts with superior ones when the technology allowed it? And isn't it also possible that he was just highly intelligent enough to develop it all on his own throughout history?
She also says she always thought her father didn't love her until just before he died
I want to give Melly a hug
No, breaking the law makes you a criminal. It's not illegal to kill someone if you were fucking mandated to kill that person by the government that would have to prosecute you.
Where the hell do you place this guy? (pun intended)
>Thought he did the right thing saving Baal
>Followed Tyrael's order and went on a suicide mission to Travincal
>Made it, but too much of a coward to enter hell
>Spent rest of his life as a broken old man in an asylum
>Deeply regretted everything he ever did and died a fool for trying to redeem himself one last time.
Probably the best example in vidya of hardest life that didn't deserve.
Also special mention to Fei from Xenogears
I'm not saying he does need an explanation, he is still a force of nature more than a character and really doesn't *need* one. But there is no reason not to postulate. And it is possible that he made most of his own mods but the fact that he has cyber-owls in the goddamned stone age means either he predates EVERYTHING and is a literal force of nature or time travel shenanigans turned him from a giant owl into the monster we know and despise.
His mistake in freeing Baal from the tomb is quite possibly the biggest single mistake in all of Diablo's lore considering what it resulted in (other than Aidan shoving the soulstone into his own head)
I kinda feel bad for him since he's just a simple over-matched human but I'd argue he deserved it. While he's in the asylum he just wants to be rid of the soulstone, not redeemed.
Definitely a constant hard life though, but who DOESN'T have a shitty life in the world of Diablo?
Or he's from a future where the Cooper clan lived out its full glory and he went back in time trying to kill them at the source, but failed in every era.
Would explain how he knows how to augment himself in case of extensive time travel way past his lifetime.
>Aqua: newly-certified keyblade master immediately tasked with searching for Master Xehanort, at the same time forced to rein in Terra's angst and console Ven's. Constantly has to clean up after Ven and Terra's messes. Has to put her dead master to rest. At the end has to defeat her both of her best friends under different circumstances, then sacrifices herself to purgatory so Terra can have some hope of salvation
>Ventus: heart broken in two, his other half the physical manifestation of all emotions. Used as a nothing more tool to create the ultimate keyblade, but manages to ward off his other half to prevent Xehanort's plan from happening, but at the cost of being put into a coma/being held captive by Sora's heart
>Terra: gullible retard who deserved everything that happened to him
Because it doesn't fit with the established rules of time travel. Don't get me wrong, the Penelope explanation does work, except for the part where it would contradict what has already been established with how time travel works in the Sly Cooper universe.
On one hand Olimar was a hard-working person looking out for his family (who themselves were greedy and took advantage of him) who ended up on a different planet surronded by giant monsters.
On the other hand he killed thousands of innocent beings in order to get him useless objects (like his piggy bank in pikmin 1 after the final boss) to keep or sell for profit.
All without realizing the pikmin were the only beings that loved him for the man he, was not just for his wallet.
>gets branded a kingslayer
>left for dead in the eyes of the people he served
>tortured for years
>dishonored and spat on throughout the game by the people he still fights for
>ends up killing and replacing his own brother and serving the nation he once betrayed to uphold peace
Good thing he never cared about honor and shame. He just wanted to save the innocent from the horrors of war.
There isn't a spot far enough right for him to go on. Eternal torment through endless reincarnation can't really be quantified on that chart's scale.
Though he probably doesn't need to be that far down. He didn't have much choice, but killing God was always going to have severe consequences.
After that he becomes godking of the multiverse with his orc waifu, becomes the strongest dragon despite not even being from the same planet as the dragons, then fucks off again without taking any responsibility for pretty much every bad thing that happened between the Alliance and Horde from before the beginning of Cataclysm up to now.
That's what makes it hard.
>Must forever live out a seven year time loop in which he wanders through a desert for days, gets tortured, has to cannibalize his friends, etc.
>Doomed to realize his plight each time only in the last moments before the loop begins again
He writes in the log at the end of the game that he believes that the small sense of direction he gave the Pikmin will allow them to work together on their own and not be the weakest, most preyed-upon species on the planet anymore. This is seen when he flies away and looks back and sees the Pikmin being able to take down a Bulborb on their own.
I'd argue that his stuff in Pikmin 1 wasn't really useless; outside of a few things they're parts of his own personal ship. Most parts are required for it to run, and everything else is fairly sentimental (it all gets sold by his jew boss as well, not by Olimar's choice)
He deserves it a lot more in Pikmin 2 but he doesn't really have a choice in either game
>grew up in a shitty town full of junkies,homicidal madmen,taliban terrorists...
>has a fat fuck annoying wife that always nags him
>every day people try to kill him
>fired from his job
>gets so annoyed from his wife he shoots himself
I mean come on the guy has such shitty luck
Definitely not after Cataclysm, he's ascended to near-god status in WoW, killed Deathwing and saved the planet, and has a loving family, and no one blames him for Garrosh (even though they should)
Arthas or Sylvanas are much easier picks, even someone like Uther
Illidan is an interesting choice because he went back and forth so much but in general had kind of a shitty life
Wind waker ganondorf should be on there
>his entire race is forced to live in the danger
>they can barely live
>tries taking over hyrule without destroying too much
>hyrule gets flooded
>he wants to revive the kingdom for both his and the people of hyrule
>the asshole king floods the castle again with links help
>even in the final fight where he tries to take links triforce to save hyrule, he only knocks the kid that ruined his life out
>he will forever bee seen as a villain
i feel sorry for him
Magusar, Sympatha, Similia, the nameless sorcerer.
Hell, everyone has had a hard life.
There is no need to separate them. And Gil didn't really deserve shit despite being a dick, he's more like right side but middle on Y-axis. He saved humanity from slavery, set up the hero shit etc.
How in the fuck did Big Boss deserve it? Also, how is he not all the way to the right? Did you even play any of the games? When you consider all the shit that he went through because of other people, he should be right next to Clark.
Didnt deserve anythin unless you play him as a dick
Super hard life
>Ezio having a hard life.
That fucking nigger doesn't know the meaning of it. Altair had a much harder life. Assassin from birth. Parents murdered. Best friend hates him and ends up being someone he has to kill. Mentor betrays him and he has to kill him. First love murdered. He ends up indirectly killing the next one. Son murdered by aforementioned ex-best friend. His brotherhood is then run into the ground and fucked over progressively with each new game.
He dies alone in a vault.
By the time Desmond basically renders everyone's struggles all for nothing, the Brotherhood is reduced to a bunch of useless faggots.
>Girlfriend tried to kill him in college
>Girlfriend pinned a murder on him in college
>Finally became a lawyer only to find his mentor dead in her office
>Has had to defend his best friends on murder charges many, many times
>His very best friend was kidnapped by a professional assassin, forcing him to defend a guilty man
>Later, that same friend was trapped beyond a burning bridge for days after almost being killed
>Tries to help more people, but gets framed for forging evidence, causing him to lose his job
>What's more, his client disappears and Phoenix has to take care of his daughter alone
>Hatches a seven-year plan to get his badge back while raising a little girl all by himself, getting framed for murder in the process
>Survives blunt force trauma to the head
>Survives falling from a burning bridge into a shallow, freezing river known for being unsurvivable
>Survives being hit by a car and flung head-first into a lamppost
This isn't even counting the time he was tricked into thinking his very best friend was BURNED ALIVE in front of his eyes.
aint 47 had a hard life? he was a clone and knows only to kill
jack bauer didnt deserve it and had the hardest life possible and his only friend is chloe
yes theres a video game of 24
