    "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."

    "War for the overworld is an interesting game where you get to create the dungeons and be this overlord kind of character it's an rts and a god game combination and you feel bad for all the hard dungeons you create but in a good way."

    "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!"

    "I tried playing Lucius on Steam because I wanted a good game where I can be the villain. While some will enjoy this game it was too much for me. This a gory and bloody game and Lucius is a bit too much for my taste."

    "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."

    "Sometimes you get tired of playing the good guy right. I wanted a game where I could be the villain and I found The Darkness II. It's great fun being the bad guy and if you want to switch roles, you should check this game out. It is wicked fun and you'll play it for days homie;"

    "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 on Steam is great. One plus for me is being the villain and kicking but. The graphics are amazing. The franchise has come a long way. I am most impressed with all the detail they managed to cram into the game. I love this game."

    "I have had steam forever. I really like being the villain sometimes. Being good gets old sometimes. Dungeons 2 is a good game for being the villain. I recruit my monsters and accomplish goals. Very fun game."

    "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."

    "Party Hard is a novel concept overall but falls flat on its execution. Random game layouts often cause confusion and the interface itself is sluggish. If you can get beyond that, it's not an awful game just not really worth a buy if you're looking for something where you're the villain."

    "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!"
