    "I really like being the villain in games. On Steam my go to game recently is Evil Genius. It is a lot different than most games I have been playing recently. The goal of the game is to take over the world. I think it is very fun and should be played by people who like to be the villain."

    "I play games on Steam frequently and wanted a game to play where you play the villain. I found War for the Overworld, which is a really interesting game. You get to build your own dungeons and play as an Underlord, which is so cool! I love playing the bad guy! The graphics are great, the game-play is very immersive, and the controls work great. I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves games like this and who wants to be the villain for a change."

    "The early parts of this game are pretty interesting are require some strategy, because you're in command of fewer minions, but as the game gets on and you get more imps it starts to turn into just swamping every enemy with all of your guys at once. That being said for how old it is the graphics still hold up because of the style. Not a bad game, but not great."

    "Overlord is a Steam game that I really like being the villain in. I like the graphics, game play and story line too. I love the battles. The game is on a level all its own imo. I cannot put it down after I start playing. Very fun!"

    "Indie games are where the real innovation is happening these days. Lucius isn't afraid to take chances with it's stylistic game play and horror elements. The supernatural powers make for a nice touch in an engaging and different kind of game that I really enjoyed."

    "The gunplay in this game really isn't anything to write home about, you've got your run of the mill assortment of weapons and not really anything else, so don't expect much variety in the gameplay. The enemies are also all basically just slightly different variations on the same guy with a gun. It can be kind of satisfying for a little while, so for 9 bucks maybe it's worth your time, if it went on sale I might even recommend it."

    "I love a game that has a good background story to set it up. I really liked the idea of taking down Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family. I thought the graphics in this game were top notch. They went so well with the story line of the game and it all tied together nicely. The use of weapons as well as fighting work really well within the game. It's a great game but just note its rated M for Mature so don't play it around any kids."

    "There's always something fun on Steam to try out when you're bored, and now there's even something when you're bored of being the good guy all the time! I love finding games on Steam where you are the villain. EvilQuest is the most recent I've come across and not only do you become the bad guy, but it's a really old-school feeling game, like it could have been on the old Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis. Fun times!"

    "Assassin's Creed: Rogue is as masterful and wonderful as the other games in this series. I'm not sure there's been a better anti-hero series of games, and this game is simply tremendous fun, with a large world to adventure in. Outstanding and highly recommended!"

    "Visually, this game is arresting. Playing it can be annoying since there seems to be a lot of glitches. Tech support is very slow to respond to issues and the game itself can run fairly slow. The narrator verges on obnoxious and there isn't a lot of training or explanation to learn how to play."

    "This game is a bit of fun, the characters are likeable and it's pretty unique, but it's got some pretty big issues too. First off the controls are sub-par, it just feels too floaty, which is really annoying in a game like this. Secondly it feels very cheap and unpolished, the art is pretty dodgy in places and it uses some out of place stock sound effects, which would be fine in a less expensive game, but for 15 bucks you really should get better. Not really worth the money, but you'll have some fun."

    "The link for this game is a solid one that take one right to the game. However, placing this game is a best of category would be a miscategorizing of this game. The game seems like it could be fun for a while, but the concept and story line a weak. The villain is on a killing spree just because people are being too loud. This game should not be placed in a best of group because of the weak story and repetitive game play."

    "Look no further for realistic simulation! I loved this when I was playing video games more often. You really get to experience and lose yourself as you are pretending to be the villain. Very much enjoyable!"
