There's a reasonable expectation that video game protagonists will be generally likeable, charismatic, and a delight to accompany throughout the course of their journey.
Of course, just like people in the real world, they can’t all be winners.
Sometimes due to some combination of poor writing, a bad story, or misguided line delivery, our central video game hero can downright suck. There are plenty of popular examples of this from the specific, like Bubsy, to the general, such as the raft of silent, personality-devoid protagonists. Then there is the opposite end of the spectrum, which is populated by extraordinarily melodramatic JRPG protagonists.
For whatever reason enough of you guys were so put off by the following protagonists that they’ve made our list of absolute duds. Bring on the trash parade.
