So ppls, what are the games your main character is doing bad task in a eyes of laws. but still a good guy. for example law breaker protagonist. kinda like anti hero.

Garrett from theif series. is a professinal thief and stealing is crime under law but he is stealing from criminals so he is still good guy. agent 47 is contract killer but his targets are only criminal.

tommy angelo from mafia is a criminal but he was forced to join mafia but keep his morals as he dont kill innocent even he is assign for..

anyone else think of these?

Assassin's Creed- assassins are labelled as bad by everyone, when the games clearly make a case for them being good.

That the general public doesn't know are criminals, and actually views as important political or religious figures.

Prototype 1 did a good job of this. Alex was technically the bad guy because he contains the plague but tries to use his powers to help the city. I liked that game.

Not all protagonists are good guys. Not every cause you fight for are good, and even if they are, sometimes, you will commit atrocities to further such a cause.

Kratos- God of War, an antagonist in everything but name

KOTOR 1 and 2- technically non-canon, but you do have the option to become a Sith Lord (much more fun IMO in KOTOR 2, because they actually allow you to be manipulative)

Hitman- technically, you are playing as a Lawful Neutral assassin, sent by an organization to kill people the law cannot touch.

But he is a good guy. his targets are only criminals and drug dealers and terrorists. he is perfect anti hero
