Top 9 Giant Spider Bosses

BT writes: With Halloween coming up soon, it’s always a good time to examine the things that terrify us. For many of us, the simple spider is a source of horror and disgust. Luckily, game designers have given us an outlet for our fear by making lots and lots of virtual spiders for us to squash. Of course, at some point, someone realized that little spiders were boring, so that evil person started to make giant spiders, giving arachnophobes something new to be afraid of. This list celebrates the cream of the crop when it comes to Giant Spiders, specifically those who were raised to boss status.

The rules for this list are simple:

1. It has to have eight legs.

2. It has to be at least half spider.

3. It has to be a boss, either having a proper boss fight or the a significant antagonistic role in the game. (Dark Souls, Devil May Cry, Limbo, PC, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360)

I like spiders. They kill annoying insects like flies and mosquitos

What spiders are these??

I don't like the ones that speed around the edges of the room.

There was one that ran across a piece of paper, then under my bed. It was big enough to make the paper it dashed across 'chitter'.

I didn't sleep much that night...

that's one badass spider boss!

a good list btw;
if i have to vote, it'd be Devil May Cry's Phantom. this bastard had some character. i also liked Dark Souls' Quelaag, if only she could speak though.

DMC, what a great game it was.

That's the one I immediately thought of when I saw the story.

Not to mention, Silitha from Darksiders and the Corpser from Gears of War (Although it's more like a hybrid). Well, at least they got the #1 spider from Limbo correct. This was the most unique spider encounter in any game I ever played.
