Squeal Like a Pig: Six Wonderfully Disturbing Game Bosses

UM writes: If you had shown me any of the abominations on this list when I was a child and told me they were future video game bosses, I would not have believed you. I would have thought them the massive final creature in some early Peter Jackson shlockfest, or maybe creatures dreamt up by Frank Frazetta, but I would NOT have equated any of them with the medium of video games.

Yet, those undulating masses of naked, oozing breasts, festering boils, and sharp, yellow teeth are very much indicative of the bosses we fight in modern video games. No longer are they just large and physically imposing, now they wear their psycho-sexual issues on their bloodied sleeves, and the end result, when all is said and done, fighting them can be some very unsettling stuff. Here, for your reading pleasure, six video game bosses that are truly repulsive to behold, yet also, truly a joy to maim and dismember. (Conker's Bad Fur Day, Dante's Inferno, manhunt, PC, PS2, PS3, Resident Evil, Retro, Silent Hill 2, Wii, Xbox 360)
