What moments from various games series will you always remember? Which moments in particular did you like/hate?


Careful reading through if you haven't played through yet...


I'll start with Metal Gear...


Metal Gear Solid:


the awesome camera angle shown with the game title (in the elevator)


going mono a mono against a TANK


Watching all the crazy moves cyborg ninja had


Freaking out when psycho mantis told me I was obsessed with saving my game


sniper wolf battles!!!


getting tortured....and not saying a word


ascending the communications tower, and mowing down anyone in my way as I go up


The Hind battle


going deeper and deeper (and deeper) into the base to where rex is held


Learning some truth behind Naomi


All of the epic Liquid fights at the end (rex, hand to hand, the escape tunnel)


Metal Gear Solid 2:


Best intro movie for a video game ever made (the one before the start screen) if you ask me


Having fun sneaking around the tanker and messing with the soldiers


The shootout in the dark tanker hallways


Sneaking around Big Shell to find all the bombs...then ironically using claymores to get Fatman


Learning more about Otacon and his sister


Sniping vamp while protecting Emma


Listening in on conversations


Getting the guard to scan his eye in that one door


Swimming through the underwater mazes...and hating every second of it


Setting my all time high "wtf?!?!" record in arsenal gear


Fighting Solidus with that awesome sword at the end


Metal Gear Solid 3:


Pissing off crocodiles/alligators


Learning how to use the camo index


Slowly realizing throughout the game how badass The Boss is, and with her

insane CQC skills how she could probably make Kratos scream like a little girl


The End boss battle...one of the most open ended, diverse boss battle ever....


Getting the chills from hearing the snake eater theme as you ascend that really, really long ladder


Having fun turning into Rambo on top of the mountain


Seeing naked snake lose his eye (I'm reminded of that guy from 300, you know, the guy that says, "eh, it's just an EYE....")


The intense motorcycle chase scene!!


The Boss final fight....speaks for itself


Finally realizing what The Boss did for her country, and seeing naked snake turn into Big Boss....deep stuff


Metal Gear Solid 4:


Mk. II!


New weapon customization/purchase system


Getting caught between two armies at war


Having the game take place in multiple, diverse locations - this really surprised me....I didn't want to read up on anything about metal gear before playing it, and I'm glad I did that because of how much this threw me off guard...I really thought the whole thing was gonna take place in the middle east


Hearing all of the BnB stories....and realizing how each story is more gruesome than the last


Trying to keep my jaw held up while I watched the movie fight sequences


Shooting down all the metal gears while escaping with drebin


The whole europe section....from following the resistance member, to the motorcycle chase scene with matrix style moments, to the awesome boss fight against the rage lady, that whole section was really fun and unique


Going back to Shadow Moses Island...this part is definitely one of my favorite parts...between the music (particularly "The Best is Yet to Come"), to the way the buildings are decaying, to the environment, and the flashbacks....brings back so many memories from metal gear solid 1....its reasons like this why to fully appreciate the series, you have to play through all 1, 2, 3 and then 4....just knowing the story, and then playing only 4 is definitely not enough


Not having to change blu-ray discs!


Piloting metal gear rex, and wrecking all the geckos in my way, like they were nothing - and then fighting RAY!!!!


The epic cutscene sequence before being launched onto ocelot's ship....very, very well done....I only wish they used the main theme from metal gear solid 2 somewhere in there, I was waiting for it....


Not letting snake give up in the microwave hallways (that was intense!)


The end fight between liquid and snake....possibly the only fight scene that could top the boss vs. naked snake end fight....


Finally having every single loose end i could think of tied up!



I couldn't narrow it down....what else do you remember in particular??

In MGS4 when Raiden starts to cry, thinking Rosemary came to his hospital bed to make fun of him. Epic soap opera.

No Joke, and all of this white out is really making this thread look like a leaked CIA/UFO document. Good idea for a topic, bad placement.



number1laing

"The secret handshake between Snake and Otacon". Yea that was a nice touch. Forgot about that one

I made the thread b/c there were none on the metal gear series as a whole...I thought it'd be interesting so see what people had to say about the WHOLE series; it is a separate topic in my opinion. If you don't think that is true, then I apologize for wasting pixels on your screen. Then again, I personally think the Metal Gear series is worthy enough to have 20 threads on different subjects about it instead of 2...so I guess take whatever I say on this subject with a grain of salt.


And yeah, I probably shouldn't have messed with the spoiler tags as much as I did, my bad.

You should change the thread title to have something like "Epic Series-spanning Spoilers" so we don't have to white everything out.

great job on the title change, as it makes more sense,


just was pointing out, there's a topic on MGS:essentials collection, mgs4, and mgs4 spoliers.


thus no need for another topic

So is this just MGS spoilers or spoilers for everything in the history video games?

Go for it - so far what are the other great/awesome/funny/insanely tough/ridiculous moments from previous series that you remember? I'm sure there are tons of moments, maybe try to do a better job than I did and whittle it down to a few moments in particular you'll never forget from a certain game/games? Resident Evil, God of War, Devil May Cry, GTA, Ace Combat, etc.

I know it's not a series spanning game, but Eternal Darkness gave me some of my most memorable moments in gaming, Paticularly one night when I put a hard 5 hour session in and made alot of progress, when I went to save my game exhausted at 4am, all of a sudden I got an internal error prompt and all my save files had been deleted!!!
A couple seconds later the screen flashed back to reality and everything was there. It was a hallucination due to the low level of my sanity meter. I never had that paticular hallucination happen ever again. It was genius. I couldn't get to sleep after that.
