Games with super huge monsters and bosses thread!

Post your favorite XXXXXL sized creatures and, of course, the games or mods they appear in. I like me some incredibly epic enemies.

I don't even mind that much if the game isn't really all that good, I'd like to see just what I stated above.

Still, bonus points if you mention a game worth playing.

Let's get this out of the way already, Shadow of the Colossus exists and is absolutely a masterpiece when it comes to finding enormous things and killing them.

That said, I also played Castlevania Lords of Shadow 1 recently and was very impressed by the size of some of the bosses. It's actually a bit of/a huge rip-off of Shadow of the Colossus, but at least they look cool. Other, non-giant bosses are more fun to fight against.

I sorta think it doesn't count if you are huge as fuck as well and the boss doesn't "feel" as big.. or you never get to actually fight a boss up close and personal apart from maybe QTE in some cases...

Interactive anime series. I watched a full playthrough on YouTube because I was interested in the story. The gameplay looks very repetitive and boring, I don't think anyone would recommend Asura's Wrath for anything but the story/cinematics.

The very beginning of that level where you're dropped off in the middle of the desert area and has to fun like hell from the approaching gigantic sandworm is also quite something. You never get to fight it, but as far as mobs do it is really an impressive one.

I feel like it's really hard to do a huge boss right. I mean in an action game it's hard to just have them fight like normal enemies, slicing at the heel of the thing like a mosquito. It's almost justified that most just end up being QTEs because of that. Monster Hunter gets past this with anime hueg swords and shit that feel like they would actually do something, turn based games can also have you target different, smaller parts of the monster.

How would you do a giant boss without making the whole thing feel silly?

SotC/Dragon's Dogma, with the whole climbing around on them, is pretty fun. Getting lifted into the air by the bird colossus or a griffin or some shit is kinda cool and exciting.

Oh yeah, my mistake. Sadly the most impressive part about that one is the introduction cutscene, because the fight against it is very zoomed-in, with you grabbing onto its rotten tendons and bones for dear like while the damn think thrashes all over hell

It gets bonus points for the scene before its fight being you climbing an absolutely massive tower of bones, and then the reveal that the entire tower is ACTUALLY the boss.

>>323554178
That one is actually from the sequel, and while it is rather impressive to look at, Lords of Shadow 2 as a whole really slacks off in the giant monster department.

Hell, the Leviathan, which is said to be a truly massive beast and was mentioned back in Lords of Shadow 1 as an unthinkable power that could destroy entire nations single-handedly, is disappointing as hell in its introduction.
>>
>>323552374
I mean, it's more fun to do it yourself than watch someone else do it in my opinion. You can still fuck up and lose, so in that sense it's still a game.

The only fun I could somewhat have against him was as a Sorc.

>>323554275
Either adopt the SotC system of just holding on for dear life, or making your main character have enhanced mobility and doing things like flying around for the duration of the fight, slashing at its various body parts by running up its arms and torso while slashing the hell out of it or something similar while trying to avoid its flailing limbs.

Games where you get swallowed by the creature, and fight your way out from the inside are good.

In Eternal Darkness you fight an unfathomably huge eldritch abomination god monster by slowly powering up pylons for a giant 9-point circle of power device that amplifies enough magic to bind the creature and then you summon the opposing monster to defeat it

>>323555114
Have you never heard that expression before? Are you trying to be clever? The literal definition of "game" involves chance. The game has chance, you can lose. It's a game. I agree that it's basically an interactive movie, but my point is that it's still worth experiencing yourself than just watching it. Especially now that you can probably buy it for like 10 dollars.
