Question Of The Month: Who Is The Best Giant Monster In Video Games?

by Jeff Marchiafava on Sep 25, 2015 at 01:58 PM

In issue 269, we asked readers who their favorite giant monster in a video game is. Ganon, The Great Mighty Poo, and one of the titular beasts in Shadow of the Colossus were among our readers' favorites, but now it's your time to chime in. Use the comments section below to share your favorite monster with us, be it a boss you fought, a towering sidekick, or even an over-sized character you took direct control of. Be sure to also share why you're so keen on your favorite monster, otherwise we won't be able to objectively decide whose has the best subjective opinion! 

My vote would be for none other than Super Metroid's Mother Brain. Not only did her giant T-Rex-like body freak me out when I was a kid, but I didn't realize her super-powered attack was scripted – I thought I had totally wrecked me when I faced off against her, making the ensuing intervention of baby metroid all the more powerful. Mother Brain was the most epic boss battle I encountered as a young kid, and the nostalgia I have for the game still lands her at the top of my list.

Now it's your turn – share your pick in the comments below!
