Five Characters Who Need A Good Game: The Threequel


When discussions of the greatest villains of all time are brought up, Vader is always in the discussion as one of the best. Always. He deflects blaster shots with his own fucking hand, commands a ridiculously huge Star Destroyer, chokes out Admirals like it�s going out of style, doesn�t give a shit about asteroid fields, and isn�t afraid to get his own hands dirty when it comes time to bust up some fucking Rebels alongside the Stormtroopers. He�s also tied to, arguably, the most famous plot twist in cinematic history. Darth Vader could also be credited as one of the first villains who really made being bad a cool thing. You don�t see your little kid running around the house pretending he�s Hannibal Lecter, do you?

Darth Vader is also probably the biggest cocktease in the history of video games too. We like to get small samples of Vader but never get to completely dive in. He pops up as a hero character in the Battlefront games and is playable in the first level of The Force Unleashed (this one level is better than anything else those games could churn out), yet I do not consciously remember any game that completely revolves around playing as Darth Vader. I find this odd considering, besides Han Solo, Vader is probably the last of the big names in Star Wars to not get his own game. Yeah, Vader has a huge presence in Force Unleashed in terms of story, but he�s not the main playable character plus he spends nice chunks of those games getting his ass kicked. That�s not Vader.

How about a Darth Vader video game that tells a story similar to how pretty much everybody wanted Revenge of the Sith to go, where Vader is seduced by the Dark Side (not tricked, like in the movie) and then goes on a personal rampage slaughtering Jedi like Godzilla through Tokyo. It could be like the first level of Force Unleashed; Vader never runs (he has dudes to do that for him), Force pushes people out of his way like it�s nothing, and chokes down anyone who looks at him silly.

Who am I? I'm a guy who plays video games, talks way too much about comics and movies, likes Godzilla and Robocop. Why should you read my blog? Because when I write I have fun, make up bullshit lists, and when I do get a little serious with some blogs I try to be insightful and use resources and facts to try and back up my opinion as much as I can. And if you don't follow my blog, I'll send you a picture of a sad kitten who wants some love.

Also, I tend to debate a lot and get up on a soapbox a bit from time to time. I like to debate for the sake of debating and I tend to find it fun to get other peoples perspectives on things, and sometimes I like to play devil's advocate a bit just for the sake of it. Basically, don't take me so serious sometimes even if it seems like I am being serious.
