This question came up in my topic about who you would most want to use if you were playing with one investigator.  So, thinking just the opposite...

 

Who would be the worst investigator to use in a game if you could only have that one investigator?

Any investigator whose speed maxes at 3. And then, whoever starts with the fewest clues among those.

Hahaha, your music isn't any use to you now, Patrice!  Nothing can save you except your absurd rate of clue generation

Yeah, Vincent just has no hope of redeeming himself. Everyone, and I mean, everyone has their uses, but I would never pick Vincent unless someone threatened to burn all of my boards and game components.

Agreed, Vincent. Awful rules and worse artwork!

It's like--Vincent is the game's dumpstat. XD And yeah, his art is weird--I feel bad since I know the artist is likely someone on DA that Fantasy Flight went to and asked for a pic but...really, Fantasy? Couldn't just take one for the team and get another artist for Vincent, huh?

I don't really want to play with any single investigator. It just skews the game.

Charlie, Vincent, or George. Never seem to get them right, even with other players...but alone? I might as well get Diana's cloak and join the other side!
What was that noise?

I originally misread this as rat generator.  This is what I get from skimming while half asleep.  Arcane insight into the rat generator :'D Manifest rat!  Manifest rat!  Manifest rat!  Suddenly I dislike Patrice slightly less...

Ah hello Jgt, I see you've crept back into the internet ether too.

Yeah, Vincent just has no hope of redeeming himself. Everyone, and I mean, everyone has their uses, but I would never pick Vincent unless someone threatened to burn all of my boards and game components.

In my opinion the only possible use of Vincent is if you want to get some exhibition items from the Pharaoh. But even then you may go better with Lily. And it is not really likely that one would go for a bunch of exhibition stuff in a solo game I guess.

That is a good point, yeah. But that would be the ONLY situation, unless you were using created content that hit Stamina alot.

 

I think Vincent was created solely for the purpose to be the 'Carolyn Fern' for Stamina. Unfortunately, that means he really isn't going to see much action UNLESS paired with Agnes. But since that means he's not soloing, that also means that the situation doesn't count in this instance.

 

Yes, Vincent, on his own, is the worst choice.

.....But then again, wouldn't the almighty Patrice Hathaway be useless in a solo game?
