Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Every enemy from Serious Sam. Especially headless (there's a grenadier above, but I think it should be a berserker instead, they're the most distinctive) and this guy:

    Kleer skeletons, man. The sound of their hooves, the way they move, that hiss they make as they leap for you... they're just the best. And you can kill any number of them with a shotgun, as long as you never stop dodging them perfectly. There's something very calming--very Zen--about that.

    Also they're fucking terrifying, especially in corridors.

    The bullet holes in that cracklings wings are a nice touch.

    (Yes, I know it's a speedling, it's also a crackling, it has the second set of claws, thus the "attack speed upgrade").

    Welcome to your nightmare motherfuckers

    My heart rate probably rises a good 20 beats per minute or so any time I see a Chryssalid in any form.

    Being a 40k fan, I always picture this being exactly what a Hormagaunt would be like. Minus the projectiles of course.

    Either way, yeah...they are fun

    I'm pretty sure the Poring is the only reason my friends were able to get me to play that game so much. Somehow this little pink slime guy following me around (we called him Mister Jelly) was totally endearing. Of course I could handle only so much grinding, and that game even on a fast server is ridiculous, but whatever... long live Mister Jelly!

    Lately, my generic video game enemies that I love to hate are the damned pigs from Angry Birds. There's not much to them, but the way they smirk when you don't managed to kill them at the end of the level always gives me motivation enough to try again!

    For real. Maybe not generic, seeing as how they're the namesake of the games they're found in, but still a common enemy.

    That's a good picture of a metroid.

    Goddamn amazing personalities for an enemy that you get to kill a couple hundred for a quarter.
