I recently started playing Peace Walker, and it got me thinking about Metal Gear Solid 3 -- which for me has the best collection of boss fights in any game, ever.

But I wanted to survey the community here, and find out which individual title you guys and gals think has the best set of boss fights in gaming -- any why.

Sound off!

You mean collection of boss fights as in the entirety of the game with all its cast of bosses; or rather, a single boss that features multiple sequences?

The former.



I'd say shadow of the colossus since the game is literally 16 massive boss fights.



It's Metal Gear for sure for me too but it's really close between Metal Gear Solid 1 or 3. Each one has a diverse cast of bosses with awesome strategies to defeat them but I think I'll award the title to MGS1 because Psycho Mantis, Sniper Wolf, Grey Fox, Revolver Ocelot, etc... have made such an impression on me because we get to know them before and after we fight them. 

This was a big weak point of MGS4, in my opinion, you don't give a fuck about any of the bosses you fought against.

I'd like to say The Evil Within; it provides an exhilarating amount of bosses with interesting designs and concepts, and they almost always feature some sort of gimmick that makes the battle more challenging; such as the poisonous gas with The Keeper, fire-only with Laura, the bear traps with The Sentinel or the WomboCombo of Two Brothers. Its biggest downside - other than some bosses coming back from time to time - is the final boss itself, which is unfortunately an almost scripted battle from beginning to end, and unfortunately kills the awesome streak of engaging boss battles.

Bloodborne's bosses with its Cthulhulian approach, Metal Gear Solid's with their crazy antics and personality or the simple but definable monster-ish battles with Resident Evil's bosses should take the crown.



Sin & Punishment: Star Successor.



I'm quite partial to 2D games in this regard myself. Sonic, Castlevania, Yoshi, Donkey Kong Country... all have great bosses.

Think I'll opt for Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door though. Many memorable characters, and great fun to fight them.



I never really cared about bosses, it's all about the journey. I know it's definitely not God of War 3.

So I'm gonna say Furi.

Yeah, I don't know what happened there, with MGS4.
