Your toughest boss fight?

So what was the one boss fight in your gaming history that was the biggest bitch to overcome?

So many, but for me (at least in this milennium): Dead Space 1. That bitch was memorable and hard to me.

Probably Crota in Destiny. Great fight, but always hard and always took a while.

Re: Your toughest boss fight?

It is hard for me to say...with all the bosses from the Souls games, I could easily make a list of 10 that deserve to be on any list....Most recently the Nameless King in Dark Souls 3 was a bit of a pain...The thing is I almost had him the first time I went at him, but he got me..here is the actual first time I fought him and getting killed...

Ninja Gaiden (NES): Never did beat this fucker. You lose and it spits you back three levels.

....and a few in Destiny that even getting to them was a challenge....

Alexander Floor 3 Savage in FF14. A bit different since it's no single player but this fight was insane. Caused MANY raid groups to break up or stop playing due to its difficulty. I don't have any vids from my group but this is the first kill from when it came out:

Last boss in FFVIII for me. I had to replay the game and do better draws to finally finish her off.

Re: Your toughest boss fight?

Yeah a few in Bloodborne gave me a hard time as well, but at the same time a couple were surprisingly easy.

I do seem to recall that Ares at the end of God of War was quite tough, and i do remember that the last boss on Devil May Cry was a bastard as it was one of those beat 3 times fights.

On the flip side i just completed GR: Wildlands yesterday and there wasnt even a final boss fight. Pretty easy that one.

Has to be Slave Knight Gael in Dark Souls 3 The Ringed City dlc. He was just too fast for me to solo had to get help from summoners. Midir a optional dragon boss was also a pain to fight. He is cheap on doing that annoying laser blast which sometimes killed me.

Re: Your toughest boss fight?

Ares was hard in GoW. Had to drop down the difficulty after the 50th try.

Been a while, but I seem to remember Dracula being pretty hard.

Phantasy Star big boss I never beat.

UC2 boss was a PITA.

Probably the hardest game I ever played and as a kid....I beat it - go ahead and laugh you ass off but I got to the point where I tried using marker on the TV screen to time jumps

Took hours and to this day I remember my cousin telling me to stop but I had to complete it - when I finally did I went crazy with excitement.

Re: Your toughest boss fight?

Not a specific boss but could I use the water bomb level in TMNT NES? That was harder than any boss fights back in the day.

Not sure if it's an accomplishment, but I beat Ninja Gaiden 2 with one life...the first time I played the game. Quite a contrast to the first.

Damn, one life? That's insane!! I beat Ninja gaiden 2 back in the day as well (but I never played 3 but I checked to see what it was all about and I thought it was very cool that it's based on taking down Clancy who hired Irene from the first game).

This thread made me go on you tube to check out the boss fights....the nightmares instantly came back

Re: Your toughest boss fight?

I've beat all the God of War games, but really hated the Sisters of Fate. You have to time everything just perfect and nearly gave me carpal tunnel.

LOL, yeah that was a bitch to do. It's probably easier to land a real F14 on an aircraft carrier than it was to do on the game.
