- What was your biggest "Holy $#!+" moment in gaming?
Arkham Asylum - I thought for sure my PS3 had shit itself when the game "reset". Then as it goes on... realizing that Scarecrow was messing with you, the player. What's a gamer's fear? That their console just bricked. Brilliant move by the developers.ID: hlxvsrv
My PS3 was old when I played Arkham Asylum, it genuinely scared me
Super Metroid, the final mother brain encounter. I still have vivid memories of the moment the "baby" metroid showed up to save me sacrificing itself. I remember looking around myself to see if anyone else was seeing this shit.
When you escape GlaDOS' deathly trap in the first Portal game and look beyond the veil of Aperture Labs.
Moon portal in Portal 2.ID: hlx9hlq
The moon in portal2 just had such a good lead up from cave johnson repeatedly ranting about moonrocks.ID: hlxctbo
For real, it suddenly turned the random lore dumps that were already great into an actual game mechanic.ID: hlxini5
The moon one was great but seeing Glados slowly revive herself was super coolID: hlx8k3m
I mean, I also said "holy shit" to the moon portal in Portal 2, but it was more of a, "holy shit, they cannot be serious..." when I realized what the game wanted me to do.
When Mengsk left Kerrigan to be killed by the swarm
Portal, when that one panel is crooked and you can walk behind it. One of the best "wtf"experiences I've had with games.ID: hlxqm1u
Can you explain more? I either don't remember this or maybe missed it (if it's possible to miss)ID: hly2fiw
It is possible to miss, but during one of the earlier tests, there’s an askew wall tile, where you can enter behind the clean facility to see the dingy exterior. It looked like someone was held up in there and wrote a bunch of crazy writing on the walls. Most notably, “the cake is a lie” written over and over. Was kinda the first real indication that all is not well here.
"Sorry kid, Joe wasn't part of our deal"ID: hlxb01x
Good thing in the end they were good to him
Its strongly implied that he took Joe in as a driver in the ending of Mafia 3. His driver looks a lot like Joe and the camera weirdly focuses on him and stops for a bit and he looks up.ID: hlxdjk5
oh it was definitely joe. that scene made me start thinking of so many possibilities
Final Fantasy VII - Learning that Cloud constructed a fake life and fake backstory based on the direct memories of his dead best friend.ID: hlx5efl
I agree. We were all so convinced Cloud was this badass guy only to realize he was just a kid who couldn’t achieve his dreams and got his mind warped by heavy traumatic events back to back
Hearing Sovereign for the first time.ID: hlwkuvo
"We impose order on the chaos of organic life. You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it."
Shivers every time man
Playing through the end of KOTOR as a kid. Learning main character’s true identity as well as bastilla’s shift was immense
The flood helping you in Halo 3, even for a small moment it was incredible crazy
Finding out the joker was suffering from the poisoned blood in Batman Arkham City and him basically dying in your armsID: hlxc915
Yeah this was very cleverly done. Didn’t see it coming at all.ID: hlxkx4l
The ending was so well done too. Batman admitting he would’ve saved the joker, and the joker laughing at the fact he caused his own death. It really seemed like something the joker would have thought so funny, bats wanting to save him but the joker ruining the plan anyways
“You want to know something funny? I would have saved you.”
The end of BraidID: hlwxmtk
Are we… the bad guys?
Probably Max Payne when he’s messed up on drugs and chasing after the hallucinations of the cries of his dead wife and baby
Psycho MantisID: hlx2u02
Yes! Still one of the best boss fights. Tookme forever to figure out the controller gag.
I forgor to mention when GLaDOS responds to Cave Johnson's recordings in Portal 2 and has a panic attack, thus starting her redemption.ID: hlxt3aa
Considering all she did to us, it's really impressive how quickly we grow to sympathize with herID: hlxxp73
How are you holding up?
Because I'm a potato
THAT moment in Knights of the Old Republic.
Modern warfare. When you get nuked and finally realize that your character isn’t surviving. Also that other part…ID: hlx865s
Oh the part in the beautiful airport, good memories there
MY NAME IS VIKTOR REZNOV, AND I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE!ID: hlx1dh1
Dude, I was looking everywhere for a Reznov mention. Loved that campaignID: hlx1tdi
My CoD hot take is that its the best of all the campaigns lol
The end of Spec Ops: The Line
Arkham Knight, when Batman is slowly going into psychosis, and all the statues and posters would have Joker faces, but disappear if you looked away
Edited to Arkham Knight, thanks for the correctionID: hlx7mdm
That's Arkham Knight. But I agree, yes.
The ending of Halo REACH. I just wanted to keep playing the end over and over, it was a fight I wanted to finish.
(I never read the books so I didn’t know that was it’s ending)ID: hlxesg9
Came here to say “CURRENT OBECTIVE: SURVIVE”ID: hlx3dgl
I had read the book. The whole time I was playing Reach I was just going “this is not going to end well…”
Assassin's creed III (not sure it's the one) when you realize you've been playing a templar since the beginningID: hlx5pq9
Also when Desmond speaks with Ezio, that was epicID: hlwr31d
The “How You Like Them Apples?” Achievement made it even better.ID: hlwscte
Yeah, I did a very audible "Whaaaat?" when that happened.
Resident Evil Village… the baby.
