Enemies you hate in games

Post by David » Fri May 06, 2016 5:37 pm

Playing Chip n Dale 2 on the NES and level 2 is full of one of the things I hate most in a game.

BATS!!

no matter how well I am doing in a game, the minute a bat appears I guarantee I will be hit or killed by it.

This has actually put me off ever playing a Castlevania game cause I know it will be full of the bloody things

What's your most hated or annoying game enemies?

Funilly enough I was going to say bats/birds as well - Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden, Tiger Road etc. all have birds or bats that flap around getting in your way. Oh, and Medusa Heads in Castlevania, those are a pain in the ass as well.

Add me to the bats/birds list. They immediately came to mind when I saw the topic title.

Another one for me is big fat guys in 90s scrolling fighters who either breathe fire or put the heads down and charge at you

Any boss that regenerates health. So pretty much any boss in Conan for example.

What annoys me more are big fat guys in 90's scrolling fighters who take ages to kill and have bigger lifebars as if being fat makes you 'arder.

Speaking of scrolling fighters...any of the jetpack-based enemies from the Streets of Rage games. I. Hate. Them.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

These assholes. They usually appear while you're struggling just to keep from falling to your doom and, unless you have the right powerup, there's nothing you can do about them.
