10 Video Game Heroes Who Are Actually Terrible At Their Jobs
2. Corvo (Dishonored)
Job: Royal Protector of Dunwalls Empress/Vigilant Corvo had one job andas anyone whos played the first half hour of the game can tell youboy did he suck at it. He fails to prevent the assassination of his beloved empress and is then accused of committing the murder by several conspirators who have their eyes on the crown. As per the rules of any fiction dealing with political conspiracies, the former royal protector is sentenced to death for a crime he didn't commit. Luckily for our soon-to-be badass, another group of conspirators (and a mysterious supernatural entity) have other plans for him, providing him with the necessary materials so that he can take on his new job of being an overpowered vengeance seeker. Now, whether he goes about that by sneaking past all the citys guards and sabotaging his foes plans or by murdering everyone he comes across is up to the gamer. Regardless, I think we can all agree its a job much better suited for him than being a lackluster guard.
