Top 5 – Video Game Enemies

Enemies make shooters what they. While guns are equally essential, without targets to shoot there would be no point. Well duh. But that doesn’t mean thats games need fill their levels to the brim with bullet sponges. While most games seem to stick rigidly to the pop in and out of cover mechanic, some developers have been starting to get rather inventive with the foes in their games. Whether they have brilliant AI, unpredictable tendencies, react to your shots realistically or are simply great fun to fight, some enemies are more fun to put down than others. And few more so than these, our selection of the best bad, Games Thirst’s top 5 game enemies.

We could only pick 5, so must have missed one of your favourites.

    little sisters were so freaking creepy, i remember papering my pants the first time i saw one!
    just the yellow eyes, somethings not right!
    the huge deamon dogs in doom 3 too, remember having to play the game always at daytime and with the lights on because a single howl always sent chills down my spine.

    Those little sisters and the Big Daddies protecting them in the original Bioshock were some of the most scary gaming for me. Especially when that Big Daddy’s hunting you.

    Or in bioshock one were there were all those frozen people and one decided to jump out at you as you got close… That made me jump

    Yeah. That game creep my entire house – no joke!

    Making people jump isn’t hard. But setting a brilliant atmosphere and disturbing environments is what made rapture such a great world to spend time in.

    Add a great cast of multi-layerd characters, a focused story and a twist that no one saw coming and you have a classic.

    Expect to see more of Bioshock in next weeks top 5, commending a different aspect of the game.

    “But setting a brilliant atmosphere and disturbing environments is what made rapture such a great world to spend time in.” Rapture was great, but I wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible lol! It felt claustrophobic – but that’s why it’s so awesome!

    Well Bioshock: Infinite looks to be the opposite of claustrophobic.

    Not got vertigo I hope Ernice?
