1 Pagan Min: Far Cry 4

At first glance, Far Cry 4’s villain Pagan Min seems like an eccentric and unhinged tyrant and the Golden Path are the heroes. However, during a scene early in the game, Min suggests that the Golden Path rebels are the bad guys. Playing the game shows that Min wasn’t wrong and they are even worse than him. Min also stays fairly friendly with the player, despite them being in direct opposition to him if they choose to help the Golden Path. He even hands the country over to them if he’s spared at the end of the game.
