The worst boss of all time comes from the most intimidating game ever: Kingdom Hearts... it is the dragon you have to fight at the last 'world' (well, on the map...)... I spent, ohhh 24 tries at killing it before I gave up for a week, came back, 30 more and I beat it! The coolest boss I think is when you beat starfox the impossible way and the final boss is not a robot, but a floating brain! (yea, so far the only person I know who did it that way was my dad... and it is real, I watched him do it!) The worst, even worse than the worst boss was from that game where you get infected and then get that glaive throwing weapon type deal... there is a robot, with miniguns, and rocket launchers that kill you in 1 shot, 50% of the time you are shot behind cover you die anyway, and there is 1, seriously, 1 cover object! EDIT- just saw the hand from Super Smash Bros. that is a good boss, man the N64 has the 2 coolest bosses of all time!

Fighting Saren in Mass Effect. I hadn't been as excited about an ending for awhile as I was about Mass Effect's ending. [img]http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee82/Lopur94_2007/mass-effect-saren-geth1-2.jpg[/img]

[QUOTE=lum1naire;16777313][img]http://www.thg.ru/game/20030929/images/ganon2.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] God damn I hated that hammer.
Most bosses from Titan Quest and Immortal Throne. Charon scared the fuck out of me the first time he shot water up through the bridge. I bet nobody knows what I'm talking about. D:
[QUOTE=kevlar jens;16737450]"The End" in MGS3.[/QUOTE] I skipped that battle using the time advance feature.
I really loved the Ocelot fist fight in MGS4 due to all the nostalgia it induced.

Anyway, i dunno what you think, but i thought he was pretty epic, the boss fighting wasn't too epic, but the character was. [IMG]http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/1120/13371344l.jpg[/IMG]
[QUOTE=Xarox;16778473]I really loved the Ocelot fist fight in MGS4 due to all the nostalgia it induced.[/QUOTE] I cried while fighting him :ohdear: It was so fucking awesome.
Every boss from Phantasy Star Online I had a lot of fun with, but the final bosses always were the most epic. Episode one was nothing compared to the horror of the being from Episode two, though. Episode One: [media]http://membres.lycos.fr/psoweb/Screens%20ennemis/Dark%20Falz%201.jpg[/media] [media]http://membres.lycos.fr/psoweb/Screens%20ennemis/Dark%20Falz%203.jpg[/media] Episode Two: (Yeah, no good pictures; found a doodle instead.) [media]http://www.imagenic.net/images/gi1b25afaie38vx8fk5z.jpg[/media] ^Was the real bad-ass. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3AdN80WKXw[/media] Came with epic music too.

[QUOTE=Xarox;16778473]I really loved the Ocelot fist fight in MGS4 due to all the nostalgia it induced.[/QUOTE] All of the boss battles in MGS4 were good, except maybe for Vamp, but I'm not sure if you can call him a proper boss. B&B were pretty good bosses too (although I expected a bigger difference if you saved them instead of killing them, not only a camo). But Ocelot/Liquid was the most emotionally intense one for sure. Also was I the only one that was heavily reminded of the battle with Wesker in RE5 during the fight with Vamp? In both cases you give the boss an injection to weaken him (or in Vamp's case, make him "mortal").

[QUOTE=AimlessGiant;16777887]II was great what are you on, III and IV however...[/QUOTE] Well, alright, II wasn't that bad. III was painful to play. IV I actually really liked. Dunno why, but it "felt" just right. Still not as good as I (in my opinion) but pretty damn good.

I just found that to be boringly simple, had no trouble with it at all and even less in co-op. Good game though.
my avatar the fight against him is good too. because spamming all your super and normal missile to a single target never felt so good.

[QUOTE=magepro99;16784228][img]http://www.thecybernetwork.net/Downloads/Wallpapers/BassGospel.jpg[/img] D;[/QUOTE] Which one, Gospel from Megaman Battle Network 2 or Super Bass from Megaman Battle Network 3? Anyways, I didn't really struggle with either them... Gospel's attacks were easy to dodge and with Super Bass I put up an aura and spammed program advances, beating him on my first try.

[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gt1DWhQk2jk[/media] actual boss appears at 1:30 and progressively gets more insane (3 forms or something)
Afraid of Monsters DC has a really awesome boss fight. You fight yourself. Shitty screencap: [img]http://filesmelt.com/downloader/evildavid.jpg[/img] Your evil half literally crawls out of a mirror and tries to kill you with an axe.
