10 Evil Horror Video Game Villains You Couldn’t Wait To Kill

9. The Psycho/Josh Warrington - Until Dawn

For the first few chapters of Until Dawn, you might find yourself wondering, "What the hell is this guy's problem?"

The Psycho, an incredibly on-point name, is a sadistic stalker out to make the lives of the players hell. At first, this incredibly unlikable objective seems to be unprovoked which just makes The Psycho all the more easy to despise.

Parading about in an extravagant mask, the loathsome torturer later enjoys a truly bonkers plot twist when he's revealed to be Rami Malek. Rami Malek as Josh Warrington that is, a figure players had all wrongly assumed was already dead in the story.

Despite seemingly having being out to kill them throughout the game up to this point, Warrington insists that's not what he actually wants. Instead, this whole, torturous ordeal's actually been a prank to avenge the victims of another prank despite Josh including a few innocent people in among the victims of his bizarre scheme.

It's all very confusing and only adds to the general murderous fury that warrants wanting to send a no-good horror game baddie to the next life. It's a convoluted plot but weirdly effective in constructing an incredibly infuriating early chapters villain.
