The worst mothers in video games
As we mentioned before, mothers in video games have either been largely absent, or simply behaved in ways opposite of what is e pected of one. ere are some of the worst among them.
Mass Effect Matriarch Benezia
While having noble intentions of trying to guide Saren down a less destructive path, she herself ultimately succumbs to the in uence of the Reaper Sovereign. Being brainwashed by the Reapers is one thing, but having lived for over a millennia as Matriarch, it’s hard to think that she wouldn’t have known better.
Resident Evil 2 Annette Birkin
Depending on the way you played the game, she could either be putting her daughter through incredible risk and danger by hiding the G-Virus in her locket, or curing her of the T-Virus. But either way, she abandoned Sherry during a zombie apocalypse, and that’s not something a mother does.
Final Fantasy VII Jenova
Sephiroth may call her mother, but her only involvement in playing that role was to have her cells injected into him while he was still an embryo carried by Lucrecia Crescent. Does she even know that Sephiroth calls her that?
