Father’s day really got me thinking about Dad in video games. A lot of games either have the dad completely absent with no mention or his role is simply one of existence. So I put together a list of memorable Video Game Dads and what made them so memorable. Covering everything from Nintendo to Zombie Hunting Cowboys, there are Dads of all sorts and sizes in video games. These eight Dads are not even close to the number of memorable Dads in video games but with my limited time, resources, and games I’ve actually played this list is what I’ve got!
So of course criticize how terrible my list is by adding all the Dads I missed in the comments! Don’t forget to at length describe why they should have been in my list, and how terrible I am for not including them!
Kids have fun! Parents, join them!
