So I am playing Force Unleashed and there is a point where you fight a Bull Balrog. This is the game’s ‘Squid in a Round Room’.
As anyone who has played such games as Half-Life, Fable or Kameo knows exactly what I am talking about. Shooters invariably have you stuck in a room with a monster that can reach almost anywhere in the room from almost anywhere else in the room. Usually it’s with long tentacles. You are then stuck in this room dodging the obstacles while trying not to get hit. Generally it requires you to simply dodge and spam a ranged attack until finally it goes down. Also, every hit takes you down by 10% or more of your health.
It’s generally a very significant boss battle, and usually consists of at least 50% of the most boring parts of the game.
So here tell us about your favorite squid in a round room moments in your favorite video games.
I’ll give another:
Lost Planet, when you fight that weird beatlelike thing that fires big icicles all around the room.
