Villains are the characters that make a video game great. It's not the hero that does it, but who he's fighting against. It's how horrific or cruel they are that makes them drawn to our emotion of "I need to kick their ass for this!" Without a good villain, a game is bland and generally won't have a second playthrough.

The Illusive Man - The Mass Effect Series
The Illusive Man is a xenophobic "humans first" villain in a galaxy filled with alien species. He's the leader of the terrorist group Cerberus, whom Mass Effect fans will remember being a part of in Mass Effect 2. He's even got a super-cool hideout next to a dying star.
