Top 7

    How about Alex from the Golden Sun games? Leads up to him being the main villain/masterminding everything onyl to basically fall in a hole and disappear before you ever fight him. 3 games into the series and he's still never fought even once!

    I'm finally playing though FAR Cry 3 now. I understand all the Vaas hype at last.

    What about G-man?!?!?!?!
  • Felxon - August 7, 2014 3:24 a.m.

    What about The Sorrow from Metal Gear Solid 3? You never actually fight him, you just wade through a river with the ghosts of everyone you've killed in the game.

    POLICENAUTS and KOUDELKA spoilers What about Policenauts. I seem to remember not having to fight the last boss Gatse Becker. (or at least firing one shot that misses) Or Koudelka. To get the best ending you have to lose against the last boss.

    Sorry to be that guy, but the Illusive Man's name has nothing to do with the word elusive so you still don't "...get it..." Illusive actually means deceptive, an illusion or something that doesn't exist. It's actually a much smarter name for him than anything connected to elusive which just means hard to catch or hold on to

    I just got schooled. The more you know! :D

    *no more heroes spoilers* How about Dr. Letz Shake in No More Heroes 1? I remember my two friends (siblings) were taking turns on the boss, and one of them got rather gyped out of fight there.

    FETAL from F.E.A.R.
  • CrashmanX - August 5, 2014 4:12 p.m.

    Holy shit. Someone else actually remembers Tron 2.0. The infinitely better sequel to Tron than Legacy!

    It's so good!

    The article's great and everything but please don't put one of the climax scenes of Mass Effect as an article banner, think about the kids!
  • Clovin64 - August 5, 2014 10:26 a.m.

    I personally didn't mind the Illusive Man confrontation. Mass Effects's boss battles (especially the final ones in ME1 and 2) aren't particularly great. Confronting TIM through dialogue felt much more fitting. What did you want? TIM to jump in a big Reaper robot suit and begin firing missiles and lasers at you?
  • Sinosaur - August 8, 2014 10:07 a.m.

    ME3's boss battle was ultimately the waves showdown with the missile launchers where you had to fight a crap ton of regular enemies and way too many Banshees. Considering ME's gameplay works better in that format, it was a decent decision. ME3's ending problems don't get real bad until after the Illusive Man.

    Lucian and Logan from the Fable franchise. I guess Pete forgot how to design good boss fights after Fable TLC .
  • shawksta - August 4, 2014 10:08 p.m.

    You fight lucian, but it was absolutely garbage.
  • Frieza - August 5, 2014 5:22 a.m.

    I wouldn't consider hitting him once a "fight". He doesn't even make any attempt to fight you. It was more of an assault than a fight.

    Dr. West from the 2009 Splatterhouse game should have been mentioned since throughout the whole he takes your girl and plans to use her for some ritual. At the end when he's dealt with, it's in a cut-scene >.<

    Great list. Definitely agree with Vaas. Personally i like the whole "Advertisement throwed you off this whole time", it worked really well on some occasions, like Kid Icarus Uprising with Hades and such. But Vaas didnt really have a satisfying ending. Speaking of KIU, it irks me that Viridi gets away scott free while %97 of the cast gets their asses handed to them one way or another. The only 3 characters that dont get REKT is Viridi, Poseidon and Dyntos.

    This was a good idea for a top 7, I enjoyed it. Songbird though...I dunno. He/She/It felt like something I was more curious and sad for more than anything. I really want to know songbird's story, and the way he was dealt with left me feeling a little remorseful. I never really wanted to fight him like some cliche boss fight so I guess I got my wish, but he was a mystery to the very end. But at the very least, his ending scene made my jaw drop the instant the background changed and I realized where we were.
