Favourite or standout moments in a game.

I saw Dark the Lucario make a similar thread regarding films and it inspired me to make one myself. Very simple, moments in a game you thought were hilarious, or inspiring or just standout.

(I couldn't find a shorter clip, the line I refer to is at 9:21) Personally I find this line in Assassin's Creed 2 to be hilarious, although I suspect others will just think I'm crazy, or stupid, maybe a little both. But anyway, what moment or moments in a game do you think were just awesome. Do tell.

I'll have to find a video for this one, but it's from Bioshock.

 

So you've played the game for a bit, and you realize, you've never really met anyone human in the game. Atlas tells you he wants to finally meet you since going down to Rapture, but when you try, Andrew Ryan blows up your method of transportation. Instead, he tells you to meet with a botanist. When you finally get there, you see her through a window, and she points out the door to the right. The second you reach the door, the room she's in fills with poisonous gas and she dies. The moment of shock I found was that because it's not a cutscene, you almost feel a sense of being able to do something about it, but you simply can't, and she's the only real human you've so far met!

If i recall, its either going to be her who dies or you at the end depending on your decision, Hidi.

Post-credits scene from Portal 2. 'Nuff said :)

The first time you step onto the HALO ring back in HALO: Combat Evolved. My mind was blown. 

 

Also the opening scene from Final Fantasy VII is quite memorable.

The ending for the original Fallout where The Master destroys himself and all his work when you show him that it was all for naught.

 

Listen up boys and girls, this is how you villain. The Master isn't evil per se, he's not random baddie born to be bad at the cost of all others. He, or it would probably be more accurate, was a combination of several people (and perhaps a few other things as well) that melded together due to the FEV virus and merged with a computer, and it decided that humanity had created an inhospitable nuclear wasteland that they were not suited to survive, and thus would have to evolve or perish, as well as do away with negative human traits such as racism and so on, so it used the FEV virus to mutate them into super mutants, one race, superior to humans at surviving the new world they hate created in their hate. So it mutated humans, forming an army with a goal known as "The Unity," the mutation of any willing human (and ideal specimens whether or not they were willing), and the sterilization of the unwilling but cooperating, allowing them to live out the rest of their lives, but being unable to continue breeding.

 

Its methods may of seemed harsh, but one would be hard pressed to say it was evil. Its intentions were altruistic, going for the greater good. But what makes this moment so special is that you can research and find out super mutants are sterile, and unable to reproduce, thus its plan wouldn't succeed as they would die out after a single generation. Rather than reacting aggressively to this news and shooting the messenger, it arms a nuclear bomb to destroy itself and its work, and gives you enough time to escape.

 

This isn't some random baddie that hates everyone because reasons, just something that wanted to elevate humanity beyond petty hatred and went about establishing the greater good in a way that it thought was best, with no malicious reasons. The Master just happened to of made some miscalculations on a few things is all.

That moment in mario kart where the rest of the racers focus on dislodging the one in the first place and Blue Shells explode every now and then :lol:

When not-Legion sacrifices himself to give the Geth autonomy in ME3...  :(

Silent Hill 1-3. No specific scene. The games were all awesome and stood out from start to finish.

I love the renegade option you use against that Reaper that speaks to you on Rannoch.  It tries to tell you that you won't survive and you just give him the finger, then call down one more orbital bombardment from the Quarian fleet.  I laughed a bit from that scene lol

 

My next favorite scene is also from ME3 being the part when the Reapers invade Earth.  It kind of gave me small flashbacks of Assault whenever the Aparoids invaded Corneria, but on a larger scale.  It was one the more fun levels I've played in Mass Effect, but not the best.

I was younger when I played Driver; first on PC and subsequently on PSOne.  The opening of the game blew my mind - I simply could not fathom something so awesome.  Of course, I was rooting for the police in the Ford Fairmont lookalike, but I digress. :-P

Playing through this game and all the dialogue keeps leading up to someone "going too far" and/or dying. Then this happens and your world shatters. :(

 

 

(Although it's just Drake on a drug thinking this happens. :-P

 

Another really standout moment in a game is from Spec Ops: The Line. Huge spoiler here, so watch at your own risk. Also kinda disturbing.

 

 

Believe it or not, I thought the entire last mission of Call of Duty 4's campaign was really amazing. The ending scene where

your entire squad is being executed

 

just REALLY hit you hard after going through a long story with them.

 

 

 

I know there were some really amazing/funny moments in games but I'm at a loss for any more right now.

-DEFINITELY- agree with you on the CoD4 bit as well as the item in the first spoiler tag; those were incredibly shocking to say the very least.

There was nothing quite like defending Hill 400 in Call of Duty 2: the fact that you actually had to use the smoke from the mortar fire to find the enemy mortar teams was cool, as well as another mission where you get to capture a town house by house, until you defend an attack from the silo in the town. Not everything has to be a set-piece to be epic.
