One of Ubisoft's premier franchises, Far Cry has grown to become one of the most popular franchises in gaming. The sandbox-style open-world FPS franchise is one that has captivated fans for a long time.
The Far Cry franchise has a few signature elements that set it apart from the rest of the shooters in the genre. It focuses heavily on giving the players the tools for any given objective and giving them the freedom to approach a situation in any way they desire.
The Far Cry series' emphasis on freedom of choice and approach has been a key factor in the games' success. However, another key element of the franchise has been its villains.
Over the years, the Far Cry franchise has given players some of the most iconic villains in gaming history.

Far Cry 3's Vaas is the character that began this trend of iconic villains in the series. Played excellently by Michael Mando, Vaas impressed so much that he landed as the cover of the game and not the protagonist.
