Thread: Any frightening or stupid Game Over screens you can think of?

    I would put the one from Theme Park as the most frightening because how it played Chopin's "Funeral March" in the background. Also the desk light turning itself off in the NES version of Dick Tracy.

    For the stupidest, I would pick the one from the first DKC with Diddy and Donkey all battered and beaten. Plus, the one from the Game Gear version of Beavis and Butt-head, where they stand in a knee-deep mud puddle and they are dressed as girls.

    But my most favorite one of all is the Return of Ganon/Game Over screen from Legend of Zelda 2. This also includes G.O. screens from the games listed below:

    King of the Monsters (Neo Geo) - This is the one with the destructed town and a human hand protruding from the remains of a destructed building.
    Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! "Start training, make a comeback!"
    Robocop (NES) "Robocop is never discouraged. Let's start again!"
    Final Fantasy VII (The one with the film reel, as you already know)
    Paperboy (Arcade) - PAPERBOY CALLS IT QUITS! Front-page news on the Daily Sun!
    Panic Restaurant (NES) - The little closed sign and the owner sleeping.
    Road Runner (NES) - "That's all, folks!" with Road Runner smiling at the player.
    Rule of Rose (PS2) - Love that little verse about a little princess who finally finds her grave and it's the day after her funeral where "everyone lived happily ever after. End"

    And lastly, my most favorite one of all, the one from Sim City with the star and moon with the little text below that says "See you soon. Good-Bye!"

    What is the most frightening Game Over screen you can think of or remember very well? Stupidest G.O. screen? Your most favorite of all? Let me know.

          Is anyone telling me about any Game Over screens they can remember that was scary or stupid? I haven't been given any good responses in several days.

            I always thought this one was pretty stupid and anti-climatic:



            Friday The 13th for NES.

              I thought that one was creepy. And there also was another one in that same game that said: "JASON WIPED OUT THE CHILDREN. GAME OVER"

                        "RoboCop 2"s game over screen was frightening to me as a kid - Robocop dismanteled and on life support...
                        Also the Ninja Gaiden arcade game "Game Over" screen was scary - some demonic faces looking at a tied-up Ryu as a bansaw comes down on him...

                            Sorry, the other one was supposed to say "JASON WIPED OUT THE KIDS. GAME OVER", not "JASON WIPED OUT THE CHILDREN. GAME OVER". Big mistake, I stand corrected.

                                        I actually thought that game over screen was pretty ballsy, check out The Angery Video Gamer Nerd's take on it. Funny stuff right there! Lol!
