The ten most annoying game protagonists

Final Fantasy X


The Final Fantasy series is loved by many for its moody, self-absorbed and apathetic protagonists. However, when creating Final Fantasy X the writers either decided to throw a spanner in the works, had a brain hemmorrhage or some kind of awful combination of the two because they gave us Tidus. With none of the moody apathy that makes Final Fantasy leads so cool, but with all the self-absorpotion of a spoilt, pre-teen beauty queen, he bounds around Spira proudly declaring how the entire story revolves around him and him alone like a little toddler hammering the pots and pans with a wooden spoon. Ironic, considering that his role in the grander plot is in fact pretty minor. What’s more, is that he can’t help but throw a temper¬† tantrum every time the plot takes a twist in the wrong direction. Furthermore, if we were to write another article on the top ten most annoying running styles in videogame history his would surely come out on top. His huge bouncing strides mean trying to cover ground is like being chased in a bad dream. All this, combined with his horrid one liners and utter lack of maturity all add up to an all-american pretty boy that we’d much rather forget.
