If someone is involved in significant matters that affect the world, then he will probably want to keep his activities secret. Plus, it works doubly in terms of crime and villainy. After all, no one wants to attract the attention of the authorities or annoying vigilantes. Therefore, the actions of all secret organizations are logical and consistent.
But not only villains can conduct anonymous activities. There are quite a few heroic teams that prefer to do their thing from the shadows. Below are the most fundamental secret organizations that clearly do not want to be discovered.
Patriots – Metal Gear Solid Series
The main villains in this franchise. This organization was created by many of the heroes from Part 3 in the 1970s. Their goal is to use their wealth and resources to create a unified world. Over time, they have become incredibly powerful.
They even run the USA! After all, the President carries out their orders. The Patriots manage to remain a mystery. In this, they are helped by microchips introduced to people. They physically do not allow to give the name of the organization. However, not everything was done by the original members. After all, many have grown old and died. They have since been replaced by highly advanced AI that keeps everything under control.
Quintet – Batman: The Enemy Within
In TellTale’s second Bat game, which you can find at the pirate bay proxy, the protagonist has to deal with a group called the Quintet. This is a secret criminal gang made up of classic Batman villains. Among them were: the Riddler, Harley Quinn, Bane, Mr. Freeze, and John Doe, who was destined to become the Joker.
By the way, the Quintet was not very secretive. At the same time, Batman did not even know that all the antagonists were working together, although he met with each of them during his missions. In The Enemy Within, they want to get their hands on a potentially deadly virus called Project LOTUS. During their atrocities, they are revealed and gain a well-deserved negative reputation.
The Order – Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
The organization itself was formed long before the events of the third part. Especially since it happened before the arrival of Nate and Sally. The order was created by Queen Elizabeth I to search for a lost city: Atlantis of the Sands. By the way, within its limits, there is a powerful hallucinogen that drives its victims crazy.
The Order is still in existence during the events of Part 3. The organization is run by one of Uncharted’s best villains, Katherine Marlowe. Talbot is working with her, along with agents in suits. They want to find this city at any cost. They do not care: how low morally to fall in order to achieve the cherished.
Family – Resident Evil series
Villainous organizations are a common sight in Resident Evil. Of course, the same Umbrella is very well known among the inhabitants of the gaming universe, although the plans and ideas of this organization may not be completely clear. The family from RE 6 is a much more secretive group. It was founded by an ancestor of Derek Simmons before the existence of the United States. The purpose of the Family was to maintain a stable world order for their own use.
In the sixth part, Derek Simmons himself runs everything. Like every main antagonist in Resident Evil, he has an interest in biological weapons. The villain uses it to assassinate the President of the United States. The latter was to expose the American government and Derek in particular publicly. The antagonist clearly didn’t want anyone to know he was responsible for the zombie outbreak in Raccoon City. It is also clear that the Family often resorted to murder in order to maintain their anonymity.
Order of the Assassins – Assassin’s Creed Series
The titular order of this franchise has existed for thousands of years. It is the successor of the Hidden Ones, who were founded in 47 BC. Since then, assassins have been working in various countries around the world.
The purpose of the organization is the preservation of free humanity. Any powerful but cruel person automatically becomes a target for assassins. The series of games features many representatives of this order from different time periods and states. They all share the same goal. At the same time, the assassins operate exclusively covertly.
