10 Best Video Game Dads

March 19, 2017Written by Tyler Treese


One of the most important (and rewarding) things a man can do is be a good father to their children. While it’s a very difficult task, and one that many fail at, there are countless examples of good parenting out there. Father’s Day, which just so happens to be today in many countries (as the holiday originated from St. Joseph’s Day), exists in order to celebrate those good examples, and we’d like to thank all of the hard working parents that visit the site.

In order to celebrate Father’s Day in our own way, we decided to take a look at some of the best gaming dads. While I’m not sure parents should be taking parenting tips from these father figures, they are rather entertaining in their own right. Only two rules were in place: A) Since we’re a PlayStation site the video game dads had to appear on a PlayStation console at some point and B) Every character has to be a dad (although that should be pretty obvious).

With that out of the way, check out our list below of the 10 best video game dads!

We hope you enjoyed our look at the 10 best video game dads. While we only highlighted 10 great characters that have peculiar relationships with their children, there’s a ton of other great characters that also happen to be dads (like the titular character from NieR). So, it’s no knock against them if they didn’t make the list.

Let us know in the comments below which video game dad is your favorite, and how you’ll be celebrating Father’s Day!
