The Most Badass Video Game Bosses EverBy Elijah on April 10, 2013 - 6:23 am |
The feeling you get when you beat a super tough boss in a video game is something that can’t quite be described—but it’s amazing, even if women don’t understand it. Take a look at this list of badass bosses and see if you have what it takes to beat them!
Resident Evil 3
Resident Evil is a franchise known for its awesome boss battles—and the original trio of games on the Playstation were no exception. Out of the three, the most memorable has to be Nemesis, unless you count the giant crocodile from Resident Evil 2 as a boss. You know, the one where you put a barrel of gasoline in it's mouth, shoot it, and blow up its head.
Anyway, Nemesis offered some delightful pants-wetting moments throughout the course of the game, since he would frequently pop up at unexpected moments and chase Jill Valentine around. Unfortunately, when the world is being ran by a secretive corporation responsible for creating zombies and a host of other monsters, she couldn't take out a restraining order against this stalker. You eventually get to kill Nemesis...with a rail cannon. Good times.
Come on, this is Hitler we're talking about here. The 'Dolf. There couldn't possibly be a more vile and immediately hate-worthy villain to hunt down and kill. Fortunately in real life Hitler didn't have access to ghosts that could shoot fireballs, but in Wolfenstein 3D, he did. And boy were they a pain in the ass.
The First Colossus
Shadow of the Colossus
This is one of the most under-appreciated games ever created, and not just because of its incredibly beautiful aesthetics. Those of you who have played it know exactly what we're talking about here—the bosses in Shadow of the Colossus are, appropriately, huge colossi (yeah, that's the plural way to say it, you uneducated swine). The first time you see one of them is a gaming moment you're likely not to forget anytime soon—these guys are seriously, massively huge.Shadow of the Colossus Boss The First Colossus
