    "This is a great game to play. This is the best place to purchase it and it's pretty cheap so it's the best of both worlds. It's a wonderful fantasy game and my children and I have had lots of hours playing this game, the only problem with it is it can be very addictive you don't want to stop once you've started."

    "There are a lot of RPG's where you can play the bad guy but Dungeon Keeper is one where it's based on you being an "Evil Lord". It's not exactly an RTS but it's a cult classic and pretty close to being what an RTS would have been at the time of its release. It's highly reviewed on GOG."

    "Rule the world and be an evil mastermind! If this sounds like you, you can't go wrong here. Numerous items and weapons you can add to your arsenal and lots of actions to drive the others nuts in the game (ever want to taunt a government agent? Go for it!). Definitely worth a look, if not a purchase."

    "Overlord 2 is a pretty decent game. There aren't that many villain games on PC for sure, but the biggest problem I had when playing overlord 2 is....it failed to capture the magic of the first one. I'd only really recommend playing this if you played #1. The first is a far superior game, the combat was interesting, unique, intuitive, and never really been done before. The second fails to expand upon this, and quite frankly is only good as a sequel, not by itself. It's a decent suggestion, I've played it and enjoyed it, but there are better, more interesting options out there."

    "After having played the campaign and all of the DLC, I can say War for the Overworld is a true successor to the Dungeon Keeper franchise. It is everything you wished for DK3 and more. I will list a few pro's and cons about the game."

    "I really wanted a PC game where I could be the bad guy. The best one I've found it Assassin's Creed: Rogue. Sometimes you just want to be evil and this game lets you do that. Try it out and find your inner villain."

    "This is great! I happen to love point and click games, and I love how hated the main character is. It's pretty cheap to, so that's a plus."

    "There are plenty of games where you have to prevent the Zombie Apocalypse, but this might be the first time you have to start it! I really enjoyed the sim aspect of this game, and it's all very science-y. Definitely would play this one again."

    "The premise of this game is kind of cool and so are the powers, although you should expect to have to sit through some pretty terrible writing, the story really is not this game's strong suit. The gameplay is fun, pretty satisfying gunplay and your powers spice things up a bit. The biggest issue I have with it is the price tag, for a 5 year old game $30 is a bit steep."

    "I gave Lucius a shot because steam says the reviews are very positive but honestly I cannot figure out why they are. This game could be a fun romp as a child horror movie villain but instead it is a confusing mess where you need a walk through or YouTube guide to figure out how to do anything (forget being creative) while dealing with voice acting that wouldn't pass in a straight to VHS film from the 90's."

    "Hatred has in interesting premise. Essentially, you're a lone villain fighting all of humanity. The game is highly violent and a little controversial. If you don't like the idea of murdering little old women, this isn't the game for you. Otherwise, you'll probably enjoy this game because it's good."

    "Finally game were I get to be the bad guy. As an avid gamer I didn't have the choice to choose the bad guy as the game always had you play the good guy. Nefarious takes the traditional platformer game and flips it around. No longer are you stuck to into being the hero this game makes you the bad guy live out the dream most gamers want to be. This is a perfect game to be the villain."

    "I like a good story in my PC games and I really enjoy playing the villain sometimes. EvilQuest lets you be a knight with the power to seek revenge and destruction. It is a retro RPG game with great equipment and also some good music."

    "Dungeons 2 is a fantastic sequel to the original Dungeon builder game that I loved playing years ago. It's fun to be the bad guy in a game for a change. If you're not careful you'll sink dozens of hours into this game before you know it. It's a breath of fresh air in today's crowded gaming market."

    "This game is kind of awesome. The game provides you with a kind of meta approach to video gaming, in which you are the villain. At first the psychological implications were kind of touchy for me, but I think the program is really cool. The game seems like it's really built upon you and your personality which is sort of frightening, but I think this is a great game to play if you're interested in playing the villain, without an overabundance of violent graphics!"
