games™ trudges through the best (or longest) boss fights they could find to compile a list of incredibly time consuming events while they should have been working.
The Legend of Dragoon's final boss was almost an hour long if I remember correctly.
Sephiroth from Kingdom Hearts 2 literally took me a whole night to beat.
I felt he was easier in KH2.
They scared me for a second there. I almost thought they forgot about The End from Snake Eater, a boss fight long enough that Kojima put in a goofy easter egg addressing it.
Funny, i beat The End in about 5 mins my first try and without any trouble. Maybe i was just lucky.
You were. It took me around 15-20 minutes and I was lucky enough to actually walk into his sniping point and use CQC to attack. If it took you around 5 minutes, that's a pretty lucky go.
Where is Absolute Virtue? The first time he was beaten, it took 18 players and over 18 hours to beat him. If we're talking strictly single-player, I'd add the final colossus from Shadow of the Colossus.
Final Fantasy XI. Edit: Crap. Meant to hit "Reply" to you, DarkLord1003.
They could have had the end boss from The Guardian Legend and Nightmare from Devil May Cry in there too.
Yiazmat is no doubt the longest, took me an age. Penance, technically, can be killed in seconds.
I don't remember the Jerghinga boss fight being that long, although that probably was because I was way too entertained to notice the time flying by. XD And right now, I'm playing Metal Gear Rising... and I'm stuck on that goddamn Senator boss fight. A couple nights ago, came across that dude, spent more than 1 hour trying to beat it, without avail, and I went to sleep crying. I think I'll tackle him on saturday morning, once I'm well rested and without any job / wife / life pressures. :P
Mikumari from Xenosaga Episode II >__<
Penance was really hard boss.
The weapons from FFVII, weapons from FFVIII, Ozma from FFIX, hell, every main FF games have superboss.
Yiazmat toke me 6 hours to beat :(
is the ffx boss an optinal boss
You mean Penance?? Then yes, he is an optional boss, and a damn tough one.
FFVII - Ruby Weapon took quite a while as well.
