  20. Nikki S.

    Nikki S.Пре 3 дана

    I love his enthusiasm and glee of playing a character who believes he's doing what is right and for a sense of power and love of ideas such as Country and the People. But Castillo is absolutely a villain. You can see it in his role as a Dictator and the fact he ordered the death of unarmed civilians that were opposing his position of power (heard in the trailers of the game where Dani & another nice find their dead bodies at a staged protest at a statue of Castillo). Still, his performance looks to be another great one in the Far Cry franchise.

    yeah i was kinda mad in far cry 5 only one of the side characters actually got any time in with cutscenes and missions. sure they each had a mission but nick got the most love. the rest got short intros and some story but dont gain anything else but cheap dialogue. then when the main baddy started crying at the end i was like?? what?? i wanted him get angry, i wanted the companions to have stories that made them matter in the last bit. i wanted rage, the game to get harder because i kill then or did things a certain way.

    @XMckingwillX well of course, because he's playing a dictator. But it makes sense that he's going the extra mile to improve his character instead of making the generic "bad guy".

    he's a professional actor, he's gonna put in double the effort that most b list Ubisoft actors will put in. Look at Vaas in Far Cry 3. I'm sure he's passionate about politics too.

  92. Christopher Bruscato

    Christopher BruscatoПре 4 дана

    I believe him when he says he is not a villian. FarCry has always had that gray area, where the worst guys are in some ways the lesser of two evils. Both FarCry 4, and FarCry 5 both had endings like that. Also, both of them to get the good ending, the only way was to walk away and not play. You always seem to play as some kind of a rebel, that wants to free people from oppression; but the oppressive leaders bring the best to their country overall. It's very twisted, but it makes you really question the good guy / bad guy facade of video games. It brings about that cognitive dissonance that video game journalists love to talk about.

    @NCR Soldier Pagan Min is just a great villain. Far Cry 4 is a great game with a gorgeous location and imo, a very interesting design of the story and the conflict of morality with each of the main characters. Esp the secret ending if you choose to be patient at the very beginning and stay put!

  94. Counter Sphere

    Counter SphereПре 4 дана

    @NCR Soldier You really should play Far Cry 4. The main "villain" is so intetesting and he really is the lesser pf two evils in my opinion. I wont spoil anything but I highly recommend FC4 and I recommend you try the secret ending too
