10. Psycho Mantis – “Metal Gear Solid”
Psychic or telekinetic villains are a common occurrence in video games, but with “Metal Gear Solid,” director Hideo Kojima took the idea of fighting a boss who could read minds to a new level. Players everywhere were stunned when Psycho Mantis first began vibrating controllers on command, making them think they had accidentally changed their TV inputs, and even disabling controls until the controller was placed into a different port. As one of the first bosses to break the fourth wall and fight the player directly, Psycho Mantis remains unforgettable to those who experienced him.
