Top 10 Boss Battles

Videogames force you to kill (or at the very least, brutally beat down) a lot of people. Whether you’re playing Halo, Skyrim, or even something as seemingly innocent as Mario, by the time you see a game’s ending credits you’ve likely killed more people/aliens/turtle-things than you can count. The amount of Chinese peasants you kill in one level of Dynasty Warriors would be enough to get you branded as a war criminal in real life. Hell, play a few hours of Call of Duty and you’ll likely kill more faceless soldiers on screen than Arnold Schwarzenegger has in all of his movies combined (538, by the way). (3DS, Final Fantasy VI, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Phantasy Star Online, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Article fail. No God of War or Metal Gear Solid.

exactly the psycho mantis bossfight from MGS was one of the most unique boss fights ever. this Article FAILS hard.

Although your comment about no GoW or MGS made me wary I went into that article thinking it couldn't be that bad, and then I saw the Mr Freeze Arkham City fight listed. Bad list.

Yeah, how could he leave out the Colossus of Rhodes or the battle with Zeus in GOW 2. That Colossus was relentless and even when he was going down he STILL took Kratos down with him.

Well, most of the "top 10 bosses" articles already had bosses from MGS and God Of War games in them so this list is actually feels fresh for a change. But I'd replace Tower Knight with False King Allant since that bastard was much harder to kill than Tower Knight. Especially if you consider how Tower Knight was a pushover when you used ranged attacks.

Even though I agree with you that an Mgs or god of war boss would have made my list, It doesn't make it right to call this a fail article because you don't agree with the bosses selected by the editor.

Its an opinion piece.

Not A Bad List could have been much better but that's his opinion

tower knight in demons souls was my favourite boss in that game, for sure.

I agree with the WW Ganondorf fight. The whole thing was just awesome. I remember getting really nervous because I had trouble timing the final parry. It was one of those things where you had to be dead on or close to it. Plus, the whole thing taking place in a drowning Hyrule was awesome.

I also really liked the Manfred case In Ace Attorney. It was an objection fest and he played his unlikable perfectionist role perfectly. Ironically, he's actually one of my favorite characters lol.

But yeah, there are some puzzling omissions here.

I would go with the Maiden Astrea fight over the Tower Knight.
Kicking Garl Vinland's ass was always a highlight of each playthrough for me.
