Video game characters everyone hates but who are actually awesomeThroughout the course of video game history, there are some characters everyone hates pretty much unanimously. But some of those characters, despite their surface flaws, have some hidden value or bizarre secret that totally redeems them. And some characters seem amazing at first, but they can actually be pretty terrible. Or, more likely, overpowered video game characters can be unbelievably obnoxious. Unless you get the chance to use them yourself, that is. Then you’ll probably be willing to overlook their more atrocious aspects. So without further ado, here are the video game characters everyone hates but who are actually awesome.
In Soul Calbur 2, there’s no shortage of strange characters to choose from. But Voldo is downright creepy. His voice is a rattle-like rasp, he’s covered in bandages (including over his blind eyes), and he’s crazy flexible. And did we mention the enormous metal claws? But if you’re the one in control, he’s totally rewarding to play as, whirling around like a human buzzsaw. His moveset is hard to predict since he’s so fluid, and he’s pretty powerful. The creep factor is just a bonus.
