We like talking about our gaming accomplishments, but let’s be real—we spend most of our time dying whenever we pick up a controller. And every time we die, we endure a ‘Game Over’ screen.
It lets us know, in no uncertain terms, that we lost, we suck, and we need to try again. Not all ‘Game Over’ screens are made with the same love and care.

We’re looking back at 10 of the most memorable ‘Game Over’ screens in video games. If you’re going to lose, you might as well do it with style.
