The most insane moments in gaming

Postby redcastle » 27 Sep 2012, 17:04

gotta say my 'most insane moment' was Silent Hill 1 (when it was fresh and unexpected), as the first boss dog-thing splits open! WTFudge! was gobsmacked.

Eternal Darkness on the GC after I'd completed it. There was a cheat disc released with Cube magazine that allowed you to ramp up the insanity meter to full. It was the only way to play it.

Listening to the surreal TV show in the original Max Payne should be on this list, that was some strange stuff!

For me I think it was Contra on the Ps2 that had one end boss as a cat in a hat piloting a battleship !

Condemned and Condemned 2 are ace games (shame they both flopped), more so the last level in the first one. Using plastic bags to kill people in Manhunt springs to mind. But the Doll Factory in Condemned 2 was quite bizarre, more so the end boss.

Destruction derby 2 deathbowl level. Drove into the middle, all the cars hit into me sending me into the air over the pit, they all fell in and I bounced back into the level, winning like the skilled driver I am.

I think I'd put the magic mushroom hallucination mission from the Point Lookout DLC in FO3 in there aswell.

Also, running around with a pandas head kicking a barrel about in PES was also weird, but great.
