The Guinness World Records has unveiled a list of the 50 top videogame villains as voted by the public. And guess who won…
No doubt Bowser has stood the test of time when it comes to video known by both hardcore and casual gamers. Heck even my mum knows who Bowser is and the truth of him being pretty mean when he wants too.
Kevin Lynch, writer for Guinness World Records 2013 Gamer’s Edition said: “It was really interesting for us to put the vote out to our readers and see who their favourite villain was – Bowser’s top place is no big shocker, but there certainly are surprises in there.
“I think what this list really reflects is that video game villains tend to be a lot cooler than the heroes they’re pitted against.”
There was a total of 5,699 votes which were cast on the Guinness World Records website, and the list will feature in the Guinness World Records 2013 Gamer’s Edition.
The top 20 villains voted for are below, think anybody has been missed off?
