There are always some bosses, year in and year out, that leave an impression whether it’s through their mechanics or sheer force of will. This year was no different and delivered some of the toughest foes in video game history. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the 15 standout hardest boss fights of the year.
Cortex – Path of Exile: Synthesis League
Leaving aside the confusing League mechanics, this encounter was about fighting several difficult bosses in a row. Each has their own one-shot mechanics; each has their own vaguely discernible moves that are tough to dodge. You don’t really know what’s happening much of the time until the fight kind of ends (or you die). But for all intents and purposes, it’s a tough fight, even for the best builds.
