The final boss in Tekken Tag Tournament. I smashed many a good controller on that one.

The final Sephinroth battle in FFVII. Took FOREVER to finish him off. He kept casting this long-ass spell that brought the sun into your face or something. You couldn't skip the cinematic. Every time he would cast it I would just leave for awhile..

I almost posted Ruby and Emerald Weapon. Ruby was a royal pain, especially if you haven't leveled up yet and linked up Phoenix/Final Attack or if you haven't leveled Phoenix. Emerald was tough only due to the HP the thing had. The 20min limit was easily overcome with that materia, but you were either dead by than or were done whooping his butt.

I'll have to dig it out the PS2 this weekend. I don't really remember fighting Ruby or Emerald.

They were both optional, but you get some items you can exchange for a few sets of master materia and a gold chocobo. They both appear in the latter part of the game, after which event I forget. Ruby is visible in the sand surrounding Golden Saucer and Emerald is lurking somewhere in the ocean.

As sad as it is, my friend and I struggled a TON with that stupid shocker evil villan from Spiderman. I dominated at that game compared to my friend, but somehow he was the only one who could get close to beating that stupid boss. We actually had to switch off in the middle of the level in order to finally beat him... the rest of the game was easy as pie, but that shocker... gah

LOL

I remember playing the Super Nintendo and having fits of rage playing on the hardest difficulty on SF2 Turbo. I would always get to Sagat and the damn AI would be so insane that I would smash my head against the controller and anything else I could find. Never broke a controller, but I was a messed up little kid.

I prefer not to break things I've paid for. Well, unless they die of natural causes...then I break away. Smashing open dead Hard Drives is fun...

The really big, self healing monster at or near the end of Serious Sam #1. There must be a trick I never figured out. I battled it once (without getting killed) for almost an hour. Shooting, dodging, ducking, re-arming, repeated countless times.
