    Dutch van der lin he is well written as he is the actual villain of rdr2 and if you hadn’t played the first one you would have no idea



  2. Maureen Russell on February 17, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Giygas is the best



  3. RBec93 on February 17, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Officer Tenpenny from GTA San Andreas



  4. Chad Peterson on February 17, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Me personally switch number 3 and number 1 and I’m just fine.



  5. Aditya Nautiyal on February 17, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Dhaka should be there.. 😑



  6. Tko Eleven on February 17, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Gaunter o dimm is the greatest video game villain ever



  7. Physicsgod 107 on February 17, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    This list is obviously totally dead wrong because it doesn’t have Hehachi Mishima



  8. neah2k11 on February 17, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    M. Bison?



  9. UmbrumSoldier15 on February 17, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Guess what? Number 1 is actually character in Smash Bros now!



  10. No Name on February 17, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Sephiroth as #1 VG villain of all time? YES, and the most beloved too.



  11. Costas Christopoulos on February 17, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Liked it. But I would add some more like irenicus from baldur’s gate or eredin from witcher.



  12. Michael Wisor on February 17, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Definitely disappointed that Irenicus didn’t make the list. The only explanation I can think of is that the maker never played bg2.



  13. Owen Faulkner on February 17, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Sephiroth is the greatest video game villain of all time, fucking sue me



  14. Big Smoke on February 17, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Goro Majima/Akira Nishkiyama



  17. Jolt Games on February 17, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Where was Dr. Wily? Why wasn’t he on here?…



  18. Abztraktt on February 17, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Where the hell is Makarov? Cmon man



  19. maciek1929940 on February 17, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    This is a very good vid, but only if you play at at 1.25 speed. Peter, you need to step up your game… Seriously, dude, less coffee. If you have 9 minutes for a vid, do 10 bosses. You dont get awards for publishing such verbal diarrhoea.



  20. Evan Bandini on February 17, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    You have n cortex but not handsome jack 🙄



  21. Daniel HOLMES on February 17, 2021 at 9:31 pm

  24. Your FBI Agent on February 17, 2021 at 9:32 pm

  25. Antonio Salinas on February 17, 2021 at 9:32 pm

  36. Zac1996 on February 17, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    How could you forget Arthas, the Lich King from Warcraft? Wow is arguable one of the best selling games of all time, and not even a single listing from the game? Slacking



  37. UN8 on February 17, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Now a days these Villains cannot be better than Micah Bell from Red dead redemption 2



  38. Bully Maguire on February 17, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    No Gaunter o’ Dimm?

    Probably the Best written villain out of all these on the list.



  39. Angel D on February 17, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    He forgot handsome lack and general shepherd



  40. Trick Shot on February 17, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    1000th



  41. Ol' Jackie on February 17, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Sob sob



  42. El Risitas on February 17, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Ladders are greatest villains ever in video games.



  43. Arash TA on February 17, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Big smoke’s not one????



  44. H D on February 17, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Dues need be repaid, or he will come for you
    All to reclaim, no smile to console you
    He’ll snare you in bonds, eyes glowing afire
    To gore and torment you ‘till the stars expire.



  45. DeadPixel on February 17, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    If Sephiroth is not number one, I’ll have to dislike.

    Edit: Good job guys



  46. EpicKairu on February 17, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    First time watching this channel. I hope it doesn’t suck as hard as watchmojo.



  47. くコ:彡Squid on February 17, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Everyone: Where’s Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2?

  48. Olru Gibi on February 17, 2021 at 9:59 pm
