    Death in Gauntlet - he was a pain in the neck!

    Not sure who to vote for here, lots of good choices. Tempted to go Otto from Berzerk, because he played a very specific role in the design of the game, added a lot of pressure, and was invincible.
    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it.

    As I mentioned on the facebook page, Empress Gremla from "Game Over" but that is mostly a vote for the cover art. I also like Torquemada in "Nemesis - The warlock", bodies have never been stacked so well...

    Sinistar! Always hungry and calling me Ron Howard.

    But from the Top 10 I will go with Evil Otto.
    When you think you are a tough avenger, switch the difficulty to A, and then try Ultimate Yars!

    I had to go with dysentery. A truly inspired choice. Without that one I'd plump for Evil Otto, partially because he's such an utter bastard pushing you through the maze, but mainly because he is an evil smileyface.

    I've also been thinking about four picks of my own.

    First, evil skull Murray from Curse of Monkey Island. Pure class. See for yourself.



    For my number twos, the snapping toilets from Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy. A vital reminder to never let your Willy get pinned down under a falling toilet seat.



    My choice for #3 is Mother from the game Sanitarium. You arrive in a devastated village populated by hideously deformed children. They constantly mention "Mother," who oversees and protects them. Then you find the huge, sprawling plant spreading across the town.



    I expect that Sanitarium, being a PC game, is less well known than the many console based horror classics, which is a bit of a pity as it's genuinely the creepiest game I've ever played and deserves more recognition. I'm not often a fan of horror, but when it's this well done and creative it is enough to win me over.

    My final choice is Robo-Hitler in Wolfenstein 3D. Because he's Hitler in a robot suit, what more do you need? Besides, after the joy of killing Nazis for a few hours there's no better way to conclude than to drown Hitler in a hail of gunfire as well.

    Surprised to see Bongo Bongo on that list, I wonder who picked it. I voted for the more obvious Zelda pick!

    Yeah, agreed, not sure how I didn't think of Sinistar. I probably would have voted for him/it.
