RP_OK 5: Bio-Shock-Ware

Villains, Part One: Conflicts and Categories.

We’re starting a series about villainy and we couldn’t be happier to be bad! Zack, Ben, and Chris look at the spectrum of antagonists in narrative games and mention some of our favorite examples, from Vaas to GLaDOS to the Joker, and an incredibly harrowing (spoiler horn) BioShock memory.

We cover plenty of games in this episode and plenty of delicious villains and engaging conflicts. Listen in, and then tell us who you think we missed!

Ben Lee
With a wide variety of interests ranging from baseball to theater and dance to technology to writing, Ben has given up on being good at any one thing and settled for being not half bad at a handful of things instead. He can usually be found cleaning up paperwork after a motley but wonderful crew of retail technicians; failing that, you can generally find him on the RP_OK Podcast at the Ace of Geeks, or on the San Francisco Giants-centric TortureCast. His Steam shame list is quickly growing legendary, and it's quite rare he's playing or watching anything made in the last five years.
