These bosses didn’t get our heart pounding quite as much as their comrades.
The masochists among us gamers go to games looking for something to push us a bit, challenge what we’ve learned and figured out about a game’s mechanics and the feeling that we get after conquering that tough boss is, well simply indescribable. Many series from Mega Man to Dark Souls have made their name on difficulty, but every once in awhile, even those games meant to be challenging have some cracks in their armour where they kind of just let us down. Here’s some of those times, but please don’t forget to share your own easy bosses in hard games in the comments below as well.
The Wall – Contra (1987)
Contra is a great game, given two Rambo knock offs a great excuse to shoot their way through a jungle infested by evil solders, turrets and exploding bridges. This challenge of dexterity must finish off in a suitable boss battle right? Well, how about you stand a safe distance away and shoot at a wall for a second. Thank god they get harder.
