12 of the Most Shocking Video Game Betrayals of All Time

We’ve all felt the soul-crushing impact of betrayal one way or another. However some of the most painful betrayals come from the world of video games, and unfortunately I’m here to remind you of them, and also to reveal one NPC betrayal you probably didn’t even think about.
