A topic series run by Xtremeblur. The premise is just as it sounds - users rate various "final bosses" from games using the basic 10 scale. A board dedicated to the topic series can be found here. It contains the latest tally of nominations, among other things. The complete list of rules, which is posted at the beginning of each topic, is as follows:


  • Rate on a scale of 0 to 10. Please try to avoid easily giving a perfect rating of a 10 or the lowest rating of a 0. Decimals (up to the hundredths place, or two decimals) are allowed and encouraged.
  • No alts, stuffing, etc.; you know the deal there.
  • If there is a sequence of multiple fights (transformations, other bosses, etc.) then you are rating all of them as part of the same fight. If there are different final bosses depending on whether or not certain circumstances were met (think Star Fox 64), I will specify which boss you are supposed to rate.
  • Ratings should be based mainly on gameplay. If there is an escape sequence or anything similar, it is your choice how much you want to factor that into your rating, but it should at least be taken slightly into consideration. In general, cut-scenes and the ending should not greatly affect your rating.
  • You have up to FOUR nominations each day. The boss with the most nominations when the next day starts will be the one that is rated.
  • When nominating, please try to put the game your nomination comes from first and the boss itself after, so nominations will look something like this: Super Mario Bros. (Bowser). This is done so others can avoid reading spoilers by accident and it makes things much easier for me if I haven’t played the game. Spoilers should be implied, so marking them isn’t necessary.
  • Rating and nominating lasts until the next topic is up, regardless of how long that takes.
  • Every twenty-five days I will hold a special day, which allows for retroactive ratings over every boss done so far, provided you didn't rate it the first time around. I will elaborate more on how these work when the next special day rolls around.
