    Please...don't release the Kraken. Loved fighting Bob though, one of those satisfying moments.

    I annoyingly started Matt Hazard just to keep my achievement streak going, however i was too slow as it rolled over to 00:00 time wise by the time the game loaded and the 1st one loaded, so the streak broke plus i now have this shit game on my Gamerscore card.

    Vanquish should not be on this list. And if it is the Bogey bosses are WAY worse than the Argus Robot.

    I would have included Alpha-152 from Dead or Alive 4. That character was so cheap.

    I'm surprised Deus Ex didn't make it on here, and I'm actually glad it didn't. For the game I was playing, and the story I was immersed in, I liked how the bosses couldn't be taken down with pure stealth, which would have been "unrealistic" even if it did fit the gameplay better. I especially liked how

    I for one loved Matt Hazard.
    Never played any of the top 5. Guess I'll have to pick them up and try them.

    To be honest, I really enjoyed the Wolfenstein boss. Even on Uber it wasn't annoying. The method was easy to figure out and execution only took some practice. Only because it is hard doesn't make it bad.

    Flames only appear from broken pipes. Most pipes are probably broken by you. There is cover at one end of the hangar but you need to constantly keep moving. I have to disagree with you on this one!

    I stopped playing Metro 2023 because of the gas mask glitch where my gas mask was so busted up I couldn't see anything anymore. That Wolfenstein boss was visible to me, I don't see what the problem is with that. The Vanquish boss was not a problem either and nothing cheap happened, making me surprised none of the bosses from Dark Souls made the cut. Lame list as usual.

    Good list. I didn't have much trouble with the Hulk Zek, though.

    The only one I might think to add would be the Lady Comstock fights in BioShock Infinite (on 1999 Mode). They were just... ugggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Vanquish is the only game mentioned there and I played. The Argus boss isn't that hard or annoying to me. In fact, I'd say Barret of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is more annoying - if a player follows the stealth pathway of upgrading, Barret would be formiddable because he is a power character.

    In my many years of gaming, the only boss battle I've never been able to beat is the adult-difficulty version of The Miss Bloody Rachel fight in Viewtiful Joe 2. It's towards the end of the game, so what they do is gather every boss you've fought up to that point, give them extra health, and make you re-fight them all in a row with no health recovery and no checkpoints. Great game otherwise -- just an awful, awful boss fight.

    Agreed. Bogey is more annoying than the Argus.

    The Raven fight from Aliens CM should be here instead of the Queen, mainly because it's completely broken. They patched the game so loads of soldier Xenos would appear and attack you, meaning you'd be killed before you could even get a hit in. Either co-op or clearing the cache and doing it offline are the only realistic ways to beat it on anything but the easiest difficulty.

    Oh, and the final boss in Conan, which I'm fairly certain is used as a legalised means of torture in Guantanamo Bay. He has something like seven forms so it drags on forever, and full of insta-death QTEs which flash up almost without warning, so you'll often be mid combo and die instantly. Horrible end to a horrible game
