I did mean first boss by opening boss. Its more often than not that you don't start a game straight with a boss, which is true for Poseidon as well.

Five are from God of War, two from Devil May Cry, one from Demon's Souls and one from Dark Souls.

I thought from the first trailer that Jorgumander, don't know the spelling, would be the first boss. That turned out wrong when they revealed he is a friendly NPC. It was the best boss in Devil May Cry 2, I still think he would be better as a boss fight.

So you were the imprecise one =] gotcha.

The game opens with you seeing the battle of the Titan against the boss so even though there is a tutorial before you face the boss yourself, it is part of the opening sequence.

Opening usually refers to the first level of the game, not the first minute. If that were the case the choices here would be far more limited and many of the bosses in the poll wouldn't even be there.

I don't think this is even up for debate. It's Metal Gear Ray from MGR: Revengeance, and it's not particularly close.

Looking at the comments here, it looks like this is a VERY debatable topic and you're losing this debate as you're the only one who mentions Metal Gear Ray :)

It's a joke, my dude. I don't seriously believe that a topic which is entirely based upon opinion cannot be debated.



Bayonetta 2 

Nier Automata.

Metal Gear Rising

Platinum is the undisputed king of Action games and no one comes remotely close to them. They just know how to open a game strong to give you a taste for more than anyone in the genre.

 

 

 

I don't know what half of what your poll is. Shouldn't even be a poll.



Just off the top of my head, Monster Hunter 4 opened with a great boss fight. Set the tone nicely

I think the fight against Poseidon on Gaia remains my favourite. It really kicked you right into the game and said oh yeah we are going all the way in this god of war game.

This. It served as a natural tutorial as well. 



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

LOL.



Gomorrah and Asylum Demon for me. They're close, but Asylum Demon was my first take on Souls and, well, even if now I can defeat that boss pretty easily, it surprised me the first time I saw it. And the Gomorrah fight is just epic.



Feral Chaos at the start of Dissidia 012, I love being absolutely wasted in an unwinnable fight because I know eventually that's the thing I'm going to be killing. I also just think its funny for the game to punish the player for boldly asserting that they are an expert, so deal with this 'expert gamer'.

Insightful response.

Yes, as much as your vague claims and lack of knowledge.
