Everyone deserves a father or father figure in his or her life. Someone to tell them that things are going to be okay. Someone to show them how to ride a bike or fire a BB gun. Someone to be there when things aren’t going well.
Father figures have positive effects on children and even adults in the real world, so here are some father figures from gaming that are sure to melt your heart.
Dad (Fallout 3)
“If you harm my son, I’m going to find you, and I will kill you.”
Dad, was, well, your dad in Fallout 3. He saved you from the clutches of the apocalyptic wasteland and cared for you in Vault 101, and while he seemed like a jerk by leaving you behind one night, he had good intentions. Dad wanted to clean the water in D.C., create a living world once again, and was willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good of mankind in the face of tyranny.
He was a fighter until the end, and Fallout 3 was one of the few games where I felt worried about a character’s father because Dad felt like my dad. And to top it all off, Dad was voiced by Liam Neeson. I mean, you can never go wrong with Liam Neeson. Dad was a pretty cool dad.5 Coolest Father Figures In Gaming’s Past 5 Years Continued »
