Sometimes video game characters fall on hard times and, despite being the hero / heroine of the kingdom / world, they have to take a part-time job. These jobs (much like some of the part-time ones I've had in the past) are frequently mind numbing and occasionally demeaning.
So, in tribute to all those characters who could really do with joining a union, we cherry-picked some of the worst jobs we've had in video games. Apologies in advance to anyone who actually rolls out pie crusts or cleans up alien guts for a living.
Doubtless we've missed some howlers in the video below so, if you can think of any particularly good examples, let us know in the comments.
