But the redshirt isn't just cannon fodder in TV and movies; sci-fi videogames are similarly packed with such characters so hopelessly full of optimism and bravery and bloody entrails that we give them ten minutes, tops, before those entrails are strewn across the level like beads at a Mardi Gras parade. Now consider seven of the most hapless in-game redshirts who were doomed from the start.
