What's your personal favorite "Game Over" screen?
« on: January 25, 2010, 11:06:38 am »
Remember the "GAME OVER" screens? Those dreaded screens that show up every time you lose in a certain video game or in arcades? Don't you just love seeing those annoying-yet-catchy screens? :p

My personal favorites are the ones from Daytona USA and Sega Rally Championship, But I like the Sega Rally one better than Daytona's - seriously, it makes me wanna lose on purpose everytime I play it just to hear the tune:

"Game over, YEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!" :lol

Daytona USA had a very catchy Game Over screen too, and after all these years, I can STILL hear it in my head, and I haven't been playing the game for quite a long time either! :blink:


So what are YOUR personal favorite "Game Over" screens? :)

One of mine would have to be the various ones you would get in Batman: Arkham Asylum. The one you would get when you die would depend on the enemy you're fighting.

GoldenEye always had a funny animation when you died.

Was just going to mention that one myself actually.  Those ones are awesome ^^

And in Left 4 Dead I think it is where it'll come up with in blood red, "You are dead"

I always liked the Game Over screen in Shadow Of The Colossus, it shows an insignia while playing extremely depressing music as a result making feel like you just died  :boohoo


There's also the game over screen in Daytona USA which includes a song the lyrics are: G,A,M,E,O,V,E,R G-A-M-E-O-V-E-R  GAMEOVER(3x).
"As long as humans continue to be the ruthless destroyer of other living beings, we will never know health or peace. For as long as people massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, those who sow the seed of murder and pain will never reap joy or love." - Pythagoras of Samos

"Gaia, the beautiful, rose up, broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base of all things. And fair Gaia first bore the starry cosmos, equal to herself, to cover her on all sides and to be a home forever for the blessed Gods." - Hesiod

I can't get that song off my head - it's as if the game's making fun of you for losing. :lol

It's also interesting how they pronounced the letter V as "voo" instead of "vee". :p

I don't about "favorite" Game Over screens, since I'm usually experiencing ager and frustration while they play, but I ca say without doubt that I find the original Super Mario Bros. G.O. screen to be the most memorable.

In Mortal Kombat 3, against the hidden fight against Noob Saibot, when you loose, Shao Khan will call out "It's official, you suck"

OK guys, I know that was all in the spirit of fun but let's try and keep it a little more user friendly please. Changed the image to a link so it's not slapping you in the face when you view the page.

Thanks guys!

That also happens in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.  Anytime the character gets whacked in the Konquest mode, those exact words show up in bloody red colors, accompanied by a skull with an evil expression :lol.

My favorite is from King's Quest VI: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPLFol0Gh-E&feature=related (wait until after each death or skip to the end.)

Funny thing is, if you play the longer, complete path of the game, you HAVE to pass the death "game over" screen while still alive.

I can't remember which one it was, but there was a silent hill game with a game over screen that I just never forgot. It was very disturbing. Everything was flickering, like your tv was messing up, there was a very eerie sound playing in the background, there were all sorts of textures in the background of what looked like blood-stained metal, and even the words "Game Over" in the center had a very unnerving appearance. You know how most game over screens make you want to throw the television out the window? Well this just made you stare as if it was hypnotizing you or something. It was truly like a work of art.

What about the one in Batman: Arkham Asylum where it takes it a step further and makes you think the game just crashed?
