The final boss of Earthbound, Giygas, is one of the creepiest things ever put in a video game. Seriously, ask anybody who has made it that far. This thing is twisted. In the story of the game, Giygas does not possess a physical form because he has quite literally become the manifestation of pure evil. If that’s not enough, he has also lost his mind to the evil and just randomly does or says whatever evil thing he can. The dialogue during this battle just makes it that much more intense and disturbing. Everything he says is insanely creepy and often times contradictory. He repeats your character’s name several times, claims to feel good, he says the word “Friends” at random but perhaps the scariest is when he says “It hurts, Ness…” I don’t really know how to describe it but that is so disturbing and messed up. It really sticks in your brain.
