I think the quest in ES: Oblivion where you are locked in a mansion and have to kill everyone is amazing. It's like creating your own Agatha Christie story with all the ways you can kill everyone.

Whodunnit is one of the best elder scrolls quests ever made. Easily

riding to mexico with the jose gonzalez song - red dead redemption

Gorgeous scene. Second only to riding home to the ranch to “compass” by Jamie Lidell. The calm before the storm.

After many years of absolutely loving the AC series so much until that point I remember how epic this moment was for me.

The first you see Rapture in Bioshock. A truelly magical moment in gaming.

That one got me. The blue whale swimming through sky scrapers was just an incredible shot

Metro 2033, the Library

ID: hqi7z7m

Shit I played that recently and instead of doing the thing where you look at them so they don't move, I just sprinted through the entire segment screaming lmao

ID: hqiho9j

You finally get out of the library, you hear an achievement ping, you find out it's for not killing them.

"Wait I could have shot them?!"

Mass Effect 2 the suicide mission when you go through the Omega Relay. ME2 really was written more like an action movie than most video games, great pacing and a tight script, just an incredible ending to a game

Another quest that's always been really memorable for me was Kyle's Gone Missing, a Horde quest in WoW involving a Tauren whose dog went missing which most old school WoW players know about. It was created by Blizzard for a kid named Kyle Chatterton who loved playing WoW and visited Blizzard through the make-a-wish foundation, they used his voice for the NPC and he got to design the quest, he would later die in 2008 but his NPC and quest remains in the game still

That final level in Halo 3 where you drive the warthog as the station is blowing up sticks out to me

I was gonna say Covenant from Halo 3.

I think Floodgate has gotta take the cake with how it starts, the crashed ship in the cutscene, (although that might count as the last of Tsavo Highway-), the first section being called “It followed me home” and just how eerie everything feels-

Half-Life 2's "We Don't Go to Ravenholm" chapter. It's one of those levels that scared the crap out of me as a kid. I know the place like the back of my hand now, but I'll always remember that first time I got greeted by it's atmosphere and... "Inhabitants".

The Original MGS fight against Psycho Mantis.

ID: hqhhz9a

Oh man, I remember I was a bit confused when he ordered me to put the controller down. Did not expect that.

Then he said he'd read my mind and he was like "aaah, I see you've saved often" and I was "huh, I have," and then he said "I see that you like Castlevania" and it freaked me because I was playing SotN. Took me a moment to figure what was happening, but it made for a very memorable encounter indeed.

I knew the botchling had to be real folklore cos it's too weird to make it out of a writing room.

Yeah, nothing says “You can’t make this shit up” like following the ghost of a dead fetus.
