Just like anyone else, I hate to die while playing a video game (and of course in real life too), but unfortunately more times the not I do. Me being the suck butt kind of player I am today, I do die and I die a lot, so I get to experience all the "Game Over" screens. So, I started to wonder, what games have the worst "Game Over" moments.

I used to believe it was Call of Duty, they do have the killcam which shows how your demise came about, letting you relive the horror over again. However, after thinking about it, I realized that the killcam was actually a pretty useful tool you could use to your advantage. Watching it allows you to see where the person, or excuse me the punk ass mo fo was hiding who took you out. So unless you're a complete moron you won't make the same mistake again, now you'll actually be able to sneak up behind them and take them out, which by the way is very gratifying.

After ruling out Call of Duty, my next choice would have to be God of War. Mainly because they don't just say "Game Over", they bust out with a very matter of factly "You Are Dead", just incase you had any doubts or delusions to the contrary.

But the game that drove me to wanting to drop kick my television many times would have to be Duck Hunt for the NES. I know it sounds silly, but I couldn't stand when that stupid dog would pop up from the grass and laugh at me when I did poorly. I could be wrong but I do think to a certain extent this could be considered an early form of cyber bullying. To this day I still wake up in cold sweats some nights after having nightmares about that stupid dog, some people have flashbacks from the war, I have them from playing Duck Hunt.

I'm sure there are many others I'm missing but my memory isn't what it used to be, it is a side effect of getting old, your mind goes and may experience anal seepage, headaches, dizziness, nausea and blurred vision. If any of these symptoms occur please consult your doctor, if all them occur, wipe your butt and consult a mortician.

Anyone else have any other "Game Over" experiences they wish to share?

By the way...why is it called "game over"...when in all reality it's not. All you have to do is press the start button and you're ready to go again. Shouldn't it be called something like "to be continued" or maybe even "game over...or is it"?

The original Ninja Gaiden arcade game had the best game over sequence, nothing says give me another $0.25 like a buzzsaw and a ticking timer.

Resident Evil 4 also had good ones. Getting decapitated and whatnot.

The most crushing "Game Over" screen is Demon's Souls' "You have died" screen...

And in God of War, just to add insult to injury:

"YOU ARE DEAD"
"Would you like to try Easy mode?"

My most memorable game overs were all from Too Human because the game gave you a solid 30 seconds of looking at your corpse to just sit there and ponder what you have done wrong before it would allow you to do anything.

Oskar I forgot about Dead Space, that game did have some pretty gruesome "Game Over" sequences.

I used to hate those timers, you would frantically have to dig for another quarter before the timer ran out, only to die again a few minutes later.

Demon's Souls, every time you die you have to restart the whole console.

getting curbstomped in gears was pretty harsh to watch.

Yeah I always thought the sniper rifle used as axe was worse, although I enjoyed doing that to others.

The characters screaming in pain in Golden Axe always got to me.

True Demon's Souls was a pain in the kiester. I hated that you had to go back to where you were "off'ed" to get your stuff, it's not bad enough that you already died, they want you to go back to the scene of the crime.

Yes, I'm really happy to have that game over with. The last few bosses are some of the easiest in gaming history though, weird.
