Why Current-Gen Video Game Bosses Suck

Bosses, which have been a typical staple of video games since their inception, no longer carry the same meaning they once did in the golden era of games. Big bads in current games are often times just as easy to kill as the countless others you cut down along the way, and developers’ lack of creativity (or fear of exploring it) in enemy and concept design has left the difficult, satisfying, and frustrating boss battles of yesteryear completely out of the equation.

God Of War still has the best bosses ever.

Also give it up to Castlevania LoS. Some excellent boss fights there.

Because the Publishers have forced the Devs to spend too much tacking on a stupid Multi-player mode instead of making an Epic Single player experience.

For a shooting game gears had good bosses. If you are expecting Marcus to throw himself on a leviathan with no shirt and a hookblade then you are dreaming.

The last boss in Gears 3 was a big suprise for me. Too good for a TPS.

Best boss fights are God of War, SOTC, Zelda and fingers crossed Darksiders 2. Nina Gaiden and Onimusha had amzing boss fights as well.
