Hitchcock would say “The more successful the villain, the more successful the picture”.
A good video game is like a good movie: it needs a good bad guy.
And a bad guy is someone with a history.
In Far Cry 5, the villain is called Joseph Seed.
He is the prophet of the Eden’s gate church in Montana.
Joseph has a very precise mission in this life: save 3000 souls before the end of the world. Whether they want it or not.
Throughout the film we follow the rush of a "very bad guy" ready to do anything to get to church on time.
