Ghouls 'N Ghosts (Genesis)
Known for its punishing difficulty, Ghouls 'N Ghosts still haunts the nightmares of old school gamers. But beyond its reputation, this 16-bit stunner was considered the first must-own game for the Sega Genesis. The arcade port even won Electronic Gaming Monthly's coveted Game of the Year award. But this isn't a story about Ghouls 'N Ghosts' accomplishments, because today we're looking at the darker side. This is how Sir Arthur dies.


Who Died? Sir Arthur, a heroic knight and bad date planner.

What Happened? Having already defeated Satan twice, Sir Arthur must have felt invincible. There he was spending a relaxing evening in the graveyard, when all of a sudden he's attacked by curiously-dressed skeletons. The first strike destroyed the armor, exposing Sir Arthur's embarrassing underwear. After running to a nearby hill, the once-brave knight found himself surrounded by undead monsters. All it took was one final swing of the skeleton's scythe to turn Sir Arthur into a pile of bones. The townspeople were thankful that Sir Arthur had conveniently died in cemetery with plenty of empty coffins lying around.
