Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best boss fights of this gen

Oh. The Edge from Furi. Most of Furi's fights are great but the Edge was so different to the rest, made you play completely differently.



Hmm, pie.

Nothing comes close.

Why not name some? I beat the standard game(no dlc) and the only memorable fight was the lightning dog.

All of them.

Lightning Dog, Smoking Frog, Laser Slime, Huge Skeleton, Seven Heads Snake (I like how you called it, so take those, lol).

But specially the human bosses. The sword fighting on Nioh is by far the best ever. Fighting other chars was amazing.

Even more in the two vs one fights.

People say Dark Souls Ornstein and Smough was amazing... lol.

Yuki Ona and Oda Nobunaga

Honda Tadakatsu and Tachibana Muneshige

Those are the real deal, nothing compares.

Nioh is by far the game with the best boss battles, gameplay wise, not only of this gen but of all time.

I disagree, I fought all of those and the fights were very forgettable only now that you mention them do they come to my mind. The character fights all felt very samey and relied more on spacing and taking advantage of openings than actually going in there and dodging attacks like in bloodborne. I get people have different tastes but saying Nioh has the best bosses of all time is a huge jump and your obvious bias is showing. 

Laser slime was a silly fight the boss basically had 3 attacks, the skeleton was just a gimmick fight were you dont really fight but instead go around destroying certain parts. Cant even remember anything about the hydra other than it being visually impressive. As for the oda yuki fight, i found it more annoying/frustrating than anything else. Tons of bullshit one hit kills and instant stagger to death shit, I was probably under-leveled though.

What are you going on about?

You came to a thread that is asking a question to see what people think about a subject, I answer it, and you come single me out to say I'm biased?

Of fucking course I'm biased to my own opinion.

About how you felt about the game itself, cool, that's just your opinion too, though...

Nioh still has the best boss battles, gameplay wise, ever. That's my take.

Bloodborne doesn't even compare. (And I love it too)



Potentially recency bias here, but if I had to choose at the moment I'd probably say the final boss of DMC5. Haven't been a ton of strong boss fights this gen imo.

Having now played Hellblade, I had to make an addition here.

Valravyn and Fenrir were two of the best bosses I've encountered in years. Both hit that perfect balance between being challenging but not frustrating, and both were fantastic designs whose awesome look was masterfully reflected in their combat style.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Genchiro, because so far he has been the best boss fight in Sekiro. The swordplay in that game is a cut above the rest. Dodging, Deflecting, Blocking, Counterattacking, and being forced to keep the pressure on the enemy in order to win. Other games feel pedestrian with their combat by comparison.



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

 

isshin the sword saint. never felt so satisfied beating a boss like this. took me a while my first try. beat him another 5 times after.
