We all love to hate a bad guy, especially when that bad guy pops up in a video game as a boss we have to fight. But sometimes, games turn the tables on us, and we end up empathizing with these bosses (or at least end up feeling bad for them), either because of their tragic pasts, or just their sheer bad luck. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen such bosses.

WILLIAM BIRKIN (RESIDENT EVIL 2)

William Birkin is no saint, and throughout the Resident Evil franchise, he’s been responsible for plenty of bad stuff, the most prominent of which was the outbreak in Raccoon City, which led to the entire city being nuked. But the fate that he suffered was a horrible one nonetheless. After Birkin infected himself with the G-Virus, he gradually became a prisoner in his own body, and in this tortured state, he was essentially forced to watch from the sidelines as the virus took over his body and mind and did one horrible thing after another.
