We ask what makes an epic video game boss battle so memorable, and take a look back at some of the best and worst examples.
Hands down "Giant enemy crab" wins.
Gaming just wasn't ready for that!
borderlands crawmerax and his kids ? lol
The should ask Santa Monica God of War creators, their boss fights are beyond badassery :D
The only issue with God of War is choosing just one "best" boss battle. Like an avalanche of great moments.
for someone that has never played the series, which one would you say is the best epic boss battle in GOW?
Definitely I think God of War III are the best of all, Ascension has some insane battles too.
3's Poseiden & Chronos, and the original's Leviathan
Bosses that regenerate are always a challenge.
I always thought they were slightly cheap. Then again I'm usually being massacred by them - so what would I know haha.
I hate when I I'm whooping a Boss's butt and his bar all of the sudden fills back up or sometimes 2 bars appear.
Most of the ninja gaiden bosses were epic on the original Xbox and for me the current epic boss battle is the nameless King in dark souls 3 👍🏻
Those Ninja Gaiden games were as hard as Dark Souls games.
Only had trouble with Alexi thing whatever was his name.
Yes mate they were. Fantastic game the first gaiden. I'd love a reboot of that franchise
The music! I know I'm in for a good fight when I get a well composed piece of music to exemplify the boss' badassery Therefore, every FFVII boss is epic!
Part of the reason windwaker final boss was so epic was the music for me I still have that theme stuck in my head :)
This very much so! Music is a huge part of what makes the encounter so memorable.
an epic end boss would be one that has multiple health bars has the ability to switch personality/split itself into a different beast ah dont forget the small space you are given to move around. can anyone guess what game that boss is from spoiler-- zelda the minish cap
One of the best/worst was at the end of vanquish where not one, but two enemies show up. I was sweating during that battle. I also remember the last fight in lost planet being pretty rewarding after beating his ass. Plus there was Virgil in Dmc who was a pain, but I got him with like no life bar and a last dying shot from my twin pistols.
For those in the know, it's all about surviving the battle. If you ever went up against "seven force" on hard, and enjoyed it, you know what I'm talking about.
