    I'm looking for a game were the user is the villain. Kind of a take I'd be curious to try, plus I'd be getting away from my usual football games. Any ideas? It'd have to be a game for playstation. The only thing I found in a quick google search was some PC only game.

    A game that sometimes blurs the lines a bit is 'Last of Us'. Not exactly what you were looking for, but if you haven't played it, do.

    Also Grand Theft Auto V, obviously.

    GTAV would fit the bill. Payday 2 you play as bank robbers.

    Skyrim or the Fallout series games give you a lot of freedom as to what type of character you want to be. You can play a straight up good guy, or a lying thieving assassin. Don't know that the character you play is technically the villain, but you can certainly be a force for evil.

    Play fallout 3 and be evil. Mass effect series also lets you choose whether u are more of a hero or a badass who doesnt care about lives of others though you are still the "good guy" either way.

    I was thinking more not really where you don't have concern for others, but where it's the purpose to be the villain to others. Like if you played a serial killer or something. As I type it out, it sounds demented. But pretty much all games have you saving the day, whether its saving others or just saving yourself, but few have plots where others try to save the day BECAUSE of you. Maybe it doesn't exist, maybe it'd be a crappy game. I don't know.

    You could download Panzer General (PG Forever) and play as the Germans.

    It's not as action-packed, but you can eventually take down Washington, D.C. That's fun on its own.

    Fallout 3 for sure if it's available on the PS 3. One of my all time favorite games

    Overlord - It is a interesting game where you play as an evil overlord with minions and a giant fortress.

    This is the answer. Overlord or Overlord 2. You play as basically a medieval super-villain. Very tongue in cheek humor throughout.

    Dishonored? I never finished it, but your character seemed kind villainy.

    There's one game I would add to the list, but that might spoil the surprise.
