Summary: Being the bad guy is typically more fun than a whiter-than-white hero. They get all the good speeches, the more extravagant plans, and commonly have far better dress sense. Over the years, some games have promised all the devilish glee of villainy, but regularly fell short of the mark, usually too afraid to let you be a truly unfettered bad guy.
Excerpt: In this adventure game from Shiver Games , we follow the eponymous Lucius, who, at the behest of his father Lucifer, must murder the residents and staff of his home at Dante Manor without drawing attention to himself and his demonic heritage. The game borrows heavily from the movie The Omen , and the idea of getting to play as the archetypal Evil Child and arranging elaborate murders á la Saw or Final Destination is fantastic.
