I am no fan of horror or thrillers. It was years before I could sit through Jaws and I've never watched more than an isolated chunk of any of the Alien movies. And yet, I do love the adrenaline rush brought on by the imminent peril I feel in certain video games, knowing that something unstoppable is on my tail. My favorite part of Metroid Fusion was the SA-X, its relentless search for Samus, and how much tension would build up when it entered the room I was desperately hiding in. In the series misstep that was Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, the Dahaka was a winning addition. The thrill I'd get tearing through the crumbling edifice of a mysterious ruin while using every acrobatic trick at my disposal to stay one step ahead of this hulking creature of doom was great. Being chased, facing off against an enemy of obviously superior power—these things can be fearful good fun. So let me offer a tribute to the baddest beast in a game full of beasts. Hats off to the Deviljho.
