Video games have a tendency to turn the tables on their audiences for some truly surprising twists and turns, and often, these take the form of reveals that the character we’d been playing as all along and thought was the good guy had inadvertently been doing the wrong things all along. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at games that did exactly that.

Do note that there will be spoilers ahead for every game we speak about, so if we begin talking about a game you don’t want spoiled, skip ahead to the next entry.

What was even more of a gut-punch, though, was the realization that Raiden had inadvertently been functioning like a pawn for them all along, with the reveal that the entire Big Shell Incident was orchestrated by the Patriots just as a means to facilitate the S3 Plan and mould Raiden into their very own Solid Snake replica.
