REVERB GAMERS 2012, #16: Who was the most memorable foe you’ve ever come up against in a
game? How did you beat him/her/it? Or did you?
I’ve beaten Big Bads and villains before, but only one of them meant something to me. I played a one shot of Don’t Rest Your Head, with friends, and at the very end our posse of children beat The Bad Man. It was a short, intense, emotional game. I cried. I curled up around the pillow in my arms. And at the end, we beat him together, and ended the reign of the monster that haunted us all. That’s the only time I think I’ve had a memorable foe I truly beat.
