This week's entry comes to us from Metal Gear Solid 3. It's not truly a spoiler, but if you haven't played the game yet, do that first. You really don't need to play the others to enjoy it - it's chronologically before the other two.
The Metal Gear Solid series is primarily known for two things: lots and lots (and lots) of cutscenes, and memorable bosses (list spoiler: this will not be the last of these boss fights featured on this list). From Sniper Wolf to the Metal Gears themselves, the series does the term 'boss fight' proper. The quality of the bosses from the third game in the series varies, with enemies like The Fury not really living up to their status as MGS bosses.
When you come up against centenarian The End, however, you instantly know that you're in for a special fight. He's essentially already dead, and for the first hours of the game, he's asleep in all of the cutscenes you see him in, silently waiting for his final quarry.
