Smeggy Smurf: The only "boss" battle in Skyrim is the three assholes that use the disarm shout and cause you to lose your weapon in the water. I hate them. I'm going to shoot arrows into their dicks when my new character reaches them. Because dickshots are funny.


I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow in the dick.

Glitchwerks: Ed Finnerty: This is what keeps me from buying Deus Ex on Steam. I had it on PS3 and the bosses really killed it for me.

Every boss in Deus Ex: HR can be beaten within a minute at the most. 2 of them can be taken down within 10 seconds.

I hate boss battles too, but the Deus Ex ones can be resolved with little to no fuss so I didn't mind them.

Would you say the boss battles were solved via deus ex machina to advance the story?

/I got nothing...

Why is Kotaku talking about video games?

kroonermanblack: NoKeyNoPlan: Dark Souls has some pretty great boss battles. Some pretty great everything else too.

Oh christ, it's one of you. Yes, we know you guys wack off to Dark souls. Now go back in the cave, we're as tired of hearing about it as we are of hearing about zombies and bacon and Monty-farking Python.

No, we aren't.

Like every other game design decision, boss fights are one means to making a game better or worse.  They are not inherently good or bad.  The end.  Dumb thread.

Also, Jenova knows if you're staring at her tits. The question is, is that appropriate for maintaining eye contact?

This is Kotaku, so let me guess how the article reads:

"Boss battles matter because gamers are all racist sexist homophobes with the collective IQ of a used coffee filter. We're saying all of this because trollbait gets us linked on other sites, which gets us more page views and more ad revenue. We wouldn't bother actually doing any real in-depth reporting. Why, when we can just lift content from 4chan's /v/, Reddit's /r/gaming, and a bunch of tumblr blogs? But don't you go to any of those sites. They're full of bad people - and going there doesn't get us any hits.

...By the way, here's something about a boss battle in some video game. 'Doom.' That's a video game, right?"
