Metal Gear Countdown: Top 5 Boss Fights

Boss battles are common in gaming. Nearly every story driven game has them, and they often serve as a climax for (certain parts of) the game. They are also integral to the Metal Gear Solid games, which feature some of the most unique, memorable and intense fights gaming has to offer. But what are the most outstanding boss battles in the franchise? Of course, with the countless enemies the player fought over the years, there are many more boss battles to consider, but here are five of the best. (Culture, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360)

The End was one of the best boss fights I've ever had in my whole gaming life. I'd buy MGS3 just to play that part again..

The End is missing from the list. Best boss fight by far. MGS3 had the best bosses and is easily the best MGS game to date.

My faveorite is Old Snake vs Ocelot. That fistfight just embodies pure epicness, imo. 2nd fave is Big Boss vs The Boss.

The End fight was amazing too, I would have had that on the list. Naked Snake versus The Boss is my number one fight, the emotion in that fight was unreal, brought a tear to my eye (more than one).

If you have a PS3, I'd wait for the Legacy Collection.

The End fight is the best Boss Battle in MGS...period.

None of the Boss Battles in the Metal Gear Series are bad (except Fat-Man - but lets pretend that never happened ;p)

I guess for me personally: The best Boss Battle in a Metal Gear game, had to be the final Boss Battle in the original Metal Gear Solid - Solid Snake vs. Liquid Snake. It was broken into 3 segment: 1.) Snake vs. REX, 2.) Snake vs. Liquid - Brawling ontop Metal Gear REX, 3.) Snake vs. Liquid - playing 'Chicken' in Jeeps in a tunnel.

And the leadup to the Final Battle? A showdown with non-other than Grey Fox himself! Epic!

P.S: Back in 1998; the first time I played MGS1 and came to that large room and saw lttle old snake standing next to the towering REX and realized "I got to fight that!? With what!!?" I nearly shat my pants.
