Have you got what it takes to take on PC gaming’s toughest video game villains?

Ah, video game bosses. While most of them serve to challenge us at our best, there are a sordid few whose sole purpose seems to be to traumatize us for life. These are the worst of the worst – the type of video game villains so difficult they’ve reintroduced us to the infantile habit of sucking on our thumbs and crying for mommy.

Here we’ve compiled a list of the 10 Video Game Bosses Who Slaughtered Millions of Noobs Worldwide – and because this is primarily a PC gaming site, we’ve only focused on those who have appeared in PC games. Read on… at your own peril!

10. The Nihilanth, from Half-Life

Half-Life was a blessing to the first-person shooter genre, giving us intelligent enemies, scripted events, and seamless, realistic environments.

It also gave us the Nihilanth.

This giant fetus monstrosity opened the dimensional rift allowing Xen’s mutants to pour into Black Mesa. And we all know the extent of the massacre that follows.

As the game’s bid bad, there’s nothing remotely cute or cuddly about the Nihilanth. Like a petulant brat, he likes throwing clusters of energy balls at your face, and when bored, summons his underlings into the room for you to play with. He also has an off-putting habit of teleporting you into rooms crowded with alien nasties. Hey, at least you’re never lonely going up against this guy.

One of the most challenging, not to mention grotesque, video game villains on this list!


The Nihilanth wants a kiss. Pucker up!
