Not a fan of “Simon Says”? These boss battles may annoy you even more.
We’ve seen bosses require quite the complex array of mechanics to bring down. However, some of them aren’t quite as complex, employing a healthy dosage of quick-time events to emphasize the “cinematic” nature of moments. What happens when those QTEs become a little too excessive? Let’s take a look at boss battles where this is the case.
Hoyt – Far Cry 3
After Vaas, one would think a showdown with the bigger bad of Far Cry 3 would be more bombastic. Alas, the final battle with Hoyt is a knife fight. One isn’t generally opposed to knife fights (they have knives!) but you’re doing little more than pushing a button at the right time. If you’re lucky, you can actually “skull and crossbones” Hoyt, shoving a knife through his throat and forehead at the same time.
