Second on our list is another villain whose propensity for making gamers around the world simultaneously shriek with rage has been greatly diminished in recent years. The former lawyer's favorite hobbies include blaming Grand Theft Auto for every act of violence committed since 1990, sending vaguely threatening and occasionally psychotic e-mails to journalists, publishers and developers, and getting disbarred by the state of Florida. Thanks to that last one he's not much of a threat these days, but his influence is still felt every time a game is tenuously linked to some ignorant news anchor's dog going missing.
