    No Disgaea 3 ? The screen was pretty normal but the song... I have no idea what is sung since it's in Japanese but it sounds like they are taunting you really bad

    Resident Evil 2. Zombie continued to eat you after you were dead.

    ha when i read the smash bros one, my brain read it in the announcers voice with the crowd going "awwwwwwwwww"

    Tales of Vesparia's "... and they were never heard from again," is quite the bummer, especially knowing you love the characters.

    Arkham Asylum/City definitely have the best, especially when you fail the Riddler's Revenge challenges and he talks down to you. So demeaning. So awesome. I love Riddler.

    "Has your puny brain given up and accepted that I, The Riddler, am better than you?"

    "You are dead, dead, dead!"

    Pre-Microsoft/Halo Bungie developed real time tactics series Myth had unique art work for both victory and lose screen for each level. The lose screen art usually involved the horrible deaths, torture and desecration of your troops, hero or local population, all the while listing names of fallen soldiers with dreaded and dark music on top.

    Fallout 2 reminded me of the original Dune game Also, Cannon Fodder. Not a game over screen per se, but the line of recruits with fresh graves in the background might fit this article.

    Awesome list Kings Quest V's Narrator has to put an irritating pun on everything you die on, NO, EVERYTHING AND THERE'S ALLOT TO DIE ON

    Lol, yeah I remember that. I loved that game to death but they sure had a way of fucking you over. You can make it all the way to the end of the game but if you didn't get something at the beginning of it you are completely screwed.
  • Redeater - October 23, 2012 1:23 p.m.

    I loved Fear Effect. I wish they would bring it back.

    This mod for Dark Souls: Also, it's not really a game over screen, but that fat purple fuck in Mario Galaxy 2 who recommends that you take a break if you die too many times in a row. Nothing in any game has ever pissed me off as much as that guy.

    Getting asked if you want to skip a level in modern 2d platformers feels pretty emasculating.
  • profile0000 - October 23, 2012 3:49 p.m.

    That mod is perfect, as that's the only way to die in Dark Souls.

    Two things came to mind. First was the you are dead song. Second are the Jak and Daxter ones were Daxter makes a sarcastic comment about your demise, which is like Batman only worse because your best friend is making jokes over your dead body.
  • Technomancer - October 23, 2012 1:31 p.m.

    Seriously, no "You have died of dysentery?"
  • Jesse1066 - October 23, 2012 1:36 p.m.

    My first thought was Gran Turismo 4.
  • JarkayColt - October 23, 2012 2:43 p.m.

    This was exactly my first thought too. I remember being mocked by that fail music way more times than was neccessary when trying to clear the licenses. And it's just so hilariously sarcastic! Just a shame it can't be summed up in a single screen I guess.
