The Best New School Boss Battles

Scott Clarke writes: "Nearly one year ago I wrote a feature for IGN that said the traditional boss fight is a relic of a bygone era. My argument was that while technological and creative advancements within the games industry have resulted in modern games that are more cinematic and immersive than ever before, these advances have not extended to how many developers shape the conclusion of their games. As a result, many games end in a traditional boss fight." (Bastion, Batman: Arkham City, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Xbox 360)

Where as I loved all of these games finales (cept bastion cause I never played it)

I felt Arkham City's was kind of cheap. I mean this is a SPOILER for those who haven't played AC... but the final battle with Clayface really didn't make sense. I wish they alluded to it more, and Clayface's reasoning for being in Arkham was really cliche. Also sadly the final boss resulted in me spamming R2 to throw freeze grenades and X to dodge, and then square to defeat clayface with a sword... which was pretty awesome.

I mean they did really good fights for Mr.Freeze and Ra's... why not the final boss? Hell unlike others I actually like Titan joker at the end of Asylum... but clayface made no sense.

The conclusion of AC was amazing.. but the minutes before made me scratch my head. My biggest problem with AC was that it did not wrap up like AA. Where as with AA their was the slight possibilty there would be a sequel... AC makes you know there will be a sequel... which is agonizing to me since I love batman and the Arkham games so much. I mean the stuff with Hush, Azarael,and Harley makes you know that their is a sequel, and I want to know more now.

Its like waiting for the next issue of a comic book impatiently. Hell I'm buying those digital Arkham comics to read because I want to know more.

Im putting everything on hold to play Harley Quinn's Revenge on the 29th...

But man, Arkham City was a great great game.... and I impatiently await a sequel... because my love for Batman is too damn high
