tonight on tumblr: people still in denial about bb’s villain status
this is a really good game btw you should check it out sometime
It’s because he’s a villain but in that “he’s doing what he believes is right” sort of way
As most villains. The difference is that usually the story is not told by the villain’s point of view. But even changing that doesn’t make the villain the hero.
Even still it isn’t so black at white. He’s holding the world at nuclear gunpoint yes, but he is fighting The Patriots, which is a villainous group in its self. BB, Liquid, and Solidus were all heroes in that they sought to free themselves and the world from The Patriots.
Solid Snake, the “hero”, was a tool of The Patriots, a different villainous group, pretty much the entire series. ‘Cept the end of MGS4 thanks to Otacon, Sunny, and everyone else.
Showing the game from SS’s point of view doesn’t exactly make him the hero, either.
