Thanks to Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment with the release of VENOM on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray and DVD, we've been given a chance to explore the rise of the anti-hero in popular culture. Though given we're a gaming site, we decided to stick to our guns and have a look at gaming's best anti-heroes from various generations over the years.

And while yes, this is a sponsored post, we were left to our own creative devices to explore such a wonderful character concept where gaming and popular culture is concerned. Here's one example of one of our chosen anti-heroes:
Conker -- Conker’s Bad Fur Day

What makes a true anti-hero is in how much they don’t care. In the case of Rare’s classic, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, which first appeared on the N64, and then later the Xbox 360, our main protagonist, Conker, give zero shits about anything other than himself. He also got drunk, unwieldy and aligned himself with whatever was going to serve his goals best: to get home to his girlfriend, Berri, after a big night out. Naturally, when you have a drunk-then-hungover bipedal talking squirrel as your anti-hero lead, hilarity ensues and you don’t just have an anti-hero for the ages, you also have an antithesis character to everything Nintendo allegedly stood for.
