One of the most important elements of any video game is arguably that it ends in a strong fashion – a memorable final boss is just one way of doing this.
Yeah, it’s a bit of a cliche topic, but I’ve been on a bit of a Dark Souls trip lately, and the final encounter got me to thinking – the most memorable aspect of a game is how it ends, isn’t it?

That’s how it should be, anyway. Today, I’d like to take a look at a few of my personal favorites – a few of the best final bosses in video game history.
