Here's to you, end-game boss monster. You certainly put up quite the fight. Now I know you may have had your heart set on obliterating the Earth and/or enslaving its population of buxom bar wenches, but that I just could not allow. Fortunately, after 5 hours of hardcore recreational frustration, you're now absolutely, positively, 100% dead, and what better way to celebrate that fact than with a lengthy look at all the peeps who made this pain possible. We're talking about end credits, those pesky, meandering registers that afford each and every designer's name exactly one-tenth of a second's fame. The crazed egomaniacs.
Most gamers tend to skip these lists outright, which is a highly unfortunate situation; one that the devs at Platinum Games (of Bayonetta fame) decided to do something about. As part of the team's 2010 shooter Vanquish, all completionists are treated to an extended shooting gallery featuring the faces of prominent designers. As an added quirk, the title's A.I programmers are made that much harder to hit, while the game’s director, Shinji Mikami, turned up in the form of a monstrous bullet sponge. Credit where credit is due--that's clever.
