The 10 Most Despicable Real Life Gaming Villains

1. The Government of Venezuela

The Venezuelan government right now is like Ozymandias at the end of Watchmen; what they did was wrong, but they did it for what they see as the common good. And it worked. Last year, the country passed legislation dubbed "Ley para la Prohibición de Videojuegos Bélicos y Juguetes Bélicos," which sends those who "import, manufacture, sell, rent, or distribute violent toys or video games" straight to jail. Do you think in Venezuelan prisons, inmates smuggle violent games inside their nethers while their visitors bake PlayStations into birthday cakes? Our hats go off to you, Venezuelan government, for being the ultimate real-life video game villain.
