FUCK YEAH moments in games thread?
>when you're doing so good in Rock Band that the audience starts singing along
When you discover Atlantis and feel like you're in a lost world, miles deep below the ocean floor... when you're really just a warp and about 70 feet from the town
>Song has pieces that are progressively unlocked as you do better and better and the song gets more and more badass
That last side-B was a super rare occurrence. Once in a blew moon it misfires and gets super fucking powerful, he just got extremely lucky right there.
Sorry to burst you bubble but that ain't skill, nigger.
Don't you know? Everything Luigi does is pure skill.
I was being ironic when I called the misfire "skilled"
Skies of Arcadia had a good one, with the music changing when you were low on health ("Crisis"), and when the boss was low on health ("Opportunity").

>with 1 HP remaining

Any MOBA where your team is getting horribly steamrolled for the first 15mins but then you somehow get your shit together and start making a comeback and win. They're rare but that makes the experience all the better.
Following something that is pretty much a cutscene with QTEs hardly qualifies as getting "better and better".
>oh, screen flashes blue, press shift and mash attack
>oh, something flashes red, press up+lpm
Finishing a fight with a special move in Rorona Plus. Shits amazing since it changes the attack animation and exclusive music play if you manage to get the kill.
DK Jungle Beat seems kinda underappreciated around here but getting a high combo going and then hearing the chant in the background start up was really exciting
"You're not going to believe this, Jean-Louis! They all have ribbon insignias!"

If you've ever played spy in TF2, you know how frustrating it can be. You have to dance a tricky routine, and even the slightest misstep (or just bad luck) means death.
So even minor victories feel really sweet, and when you pull off stuff like this:
>tricking medics into healing you
>headshots w/ ambassador
>sapping machines and then killing the engie without alerting base
>fooling everyone and generally running shit
...it feels fucking glorious.
>mfw the first time doing the "stab engie then sap his sentry before it can react to you" thing
i felt like a god
>sequel includes a save carry over function and your character from the first game is an NPC in the second.

Regular gameplay gives you freedom to do what you want for the most part, QTEs are a shit system that games use as a crutch for lack of interesting combat and mechanics, or even worse to be more "cinematic".

Shit was cash.
what are you even talking about? the parry mechanic isn't a qte. It's a visual cue to let you know you have to perform a parry, which you do in the direction from which the attack is coming.
I agree that qtes are shit, but a legitimate gameplay mechanic is not one.

It's been a while since I last played that game, but wasn't there just one save file? How would that work? The game remembers your character even if you ditch him for another one?
>Dynasty Warriors 6

>main force is a good while away, forget about it eventually
>suddenly troops, troops everywhere
in the opening fight, the lyrics are tied to the killing blow QTE, and with mistrall the lyrics kick in in the buildup to the killing blow QTE. The different guitar and drum tracks kick in depending on what part of the arena you're in or what part of the boss you're attacking, which is still pretty cool.
>Eliminator mode in WipEout HD
>using a quake when a bunch of people are in front of you
>[contender eliminations intensify]
One save file, but new game plus.
Each new game plus, you get to redesign your character and main pawn, but keep all the items you had in the last playthrough. The final boss is your previous character's last known design.
No it doesn't. When a game requires a specific button press from you in a specific timeframe, it's a QTE.
In other games, for example, you can parry at any time in any direction and this has it's consequences - you often cannot attack while defending. The flow of the game also dictates your choice of reaction, but in MGR there is no choice - you see a red flash, you parry and even the other reaction - running away - has no different upsides or downsides to it.
Blade Mode in boss fights is the same thing. The game requires a button press at the exact moment and nothing you do in blade mode actually matters, you just hack away.
You'll like certain aspects of it, such as class-specific stuff, somewhat complex combat and lots of dungeon crawling.
Otherwise, it's kind of a mix of Shadow of the Colossus, TES and some Platinum games.
>Serious sam 3
>Almost no health
>plenty of ammo
>Turn the corner and its a wide, empty field
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5JqLwyI70w starts to play
>last man standing in Counter Strike
>everybody watching, judging
>you vs an overwhelming number of enemies
>you somehow do it
it's a defensive game built around the parry mechanic, something that a lot of people fucking suck at, hence why it gives you the option to make it automatic. Fucking up a parry has dire consequences, especially in certain boss fights. Given that all attacks are telegraphed with the red flash I really don't see the problem.
QTEs are "press x to not die" sequences that happen in scripted sequences, not an actual gameplay mechanic that happens organically.
By your logic, the seesaw physics puzzles in half life 2 are QTEs as well, since there's no option but to complete them, and the game requires you to complete and action based on a visual cue.
>Getting swarmed by enemies
>You can stop/slow down time
In Dragon's Dogma didn't your previous character just have the same copy pasted moveset that Savan had?
It would've been the hypest shit if your past self could use all of the skills that you had in your last playthrough, but no game is perfect I guess.
That would've made the game too easy if you'd already known about the final boss.
I mean, the final boss is pretty damn easy already, but if your previous Arisen was a warrior and you played your whole new game + as a magic archer or a strider, you'd literally be able to walk up to them and just keep spamming the attack button again and again.
>yfw activating DT/Ripper mode/EX mode/whatever OP form you have and slaughtering everything around
This is the greatest feeling.
Every single boss fight in W101.
And the rival fights.
And whenever you get a plat/pureplat trophy.

Bopopolis was supposed to be tough? I only lost like 10 lives on it.

I beat paper mario TTYD like that. It was just Viv and Mario left, and Mario was at 1. I had to do something like 16 to kill the boss, so I did the continuous jump, and managed to hit it perfect every time. I have never been so hype about a final boss before.

No game will ever top this final mission. It was fucking perfect.
I have to wait 3 days till I get it because payday isn't till thursday. I'm sad because I played it for like 12 hours when it was free for two days and I just got a new gpu and want to try it out.
If anyone gifts me the game I can regift something for them in two days of equal monetary value. No joke, steam or origin. Please. ;_;

There are probably a lot of games that vaguely fit this theme, but you reminded me how hype the end of Metal Arms: Glitch In the System was. You
posses the 100 foot tall final boss after a big game of cat and mouse, use his abilities to decimate his army and destroy the space station he is on. After he crashes down to the planet he is finally weak enough for you to take him one on one. That game had some other really cool moments too.
That grab is the leadup to the end of the first fight, and the end of the second fight had a lyrical kick as well.
The only fights that had kicks come in early in the fight were Sam and Armstrong

Yeah, I normally suck at spy, but one day I somehow clicked into the groove and managed to turn around the tide of a match.
I'd joined where the other team was in the process of capturing my team's last point when I helped clear out and stop them capturing, and ended using several classes as was needed through the match, but the most fun was using cloak and dagger, going way behind their lines, then fucking with their incredibly well placed sentry nest, stabbing, etc. and making them so damn paranoid they were goddamn constantly spychecking everywhere, such that it gave my teammates the opening they needed for a push.
Was the best match of TF2 I ever played.
Happened to me the first time I fought Emperor Doel in the Legend of Dragoon. My last guy has 3 HP, and Doel would have done more damage in his next attack than I could heal. Decide, "fuck it, maybe I'll get lucky with one last attack."
I got lucky and jumped. My brother witnessed the whole thing. It was great.

Pretty much any time the main theme of the game kicks in at a well placed moment in action.
>playing game with ridiculous hitbox patterns like Contra or Gradius
>that moment when you're on your last life and continue and suddenly you cease to be just watching your in game avatar and trying to dodge things and instead your eyes widen as you magically begin to watch the entire screen at once, taking in and evaluating all information and paths of travel of every projectile and enemy on the screen and reacting flawlessly with your heightened perception

It's like you're seeing everything at once and not looking at anything at all. Not looking at your player character, not looking at the projectiles, but instead understanding the screen for what it is, one unified display of information. When you stop choosing to focus on one single part of it and expand your focus to the screen as a whole you suddenly receive all of this information at once and your brain super-computer can sort through it all and process it as it comes at you to react and pre-act, and you don't even have to look at your avatar because you just know where it is on the screen by the buttons your pressing and relative to everything else.
Surely this is tapping into some sort of human higher consciousness that only games can unlock.

Twillight Princess is my favorite Zelda because of that moment against ganon. Also DMC3's Vegil boss fights and Viewtiful Joe's boss battles against captain blue and the final boss in 2.

>In other games, for example, you can parry at any time in any direction and this has it's consequences - you often cannot attack while defending. The flow of the game also dictates your choice of reaction, but in MGR there is no choice - you see a red flash, you parry and even the other reaction - running away - has no different upsides or downsides to it.
This is the dumbest shit I've ever heard. You can run away, use offensive defensive, Try to knock him out of his attack animation, jump over him, run away
You know, like any other fucking game? It's a visual cue indicating an attack is coming. That's all.

aThe one thing it did do was change the music depending on how you did.
I think it was called "the tables turn" Correct me if I'm wrong gentle anons.
The one grip I have the most with this game is it not doing it when you fight a drake, the music is ominous enough though

I never kept my practice on a regular basis and just stopped trying altogether.
I still have the program, so I'll take a stab at it again when I feel up to the task.
That moment when I saw the whole lines of text in one glance still pretty fuckin bonkers though (and it's why I still have hope I'll pick it up agiain).

Thanks for the memories based Saint's Row 2.
ZOE2 has a really underrated climax. From the time Zero Shift is unlocked to the time the credits roll, it's just a balls-to-the-wall fucking AWESOME ride. The fight against a maximum strength Anubis with you having to pilot a Jehuty
barely holding itself together and with 95% of its abilities lockedwas way too fucking hype.
None of my friends were ever man enough to sing.
I suck at singing but would go fucking HAM on rock band mic. Straight up yelling into it. Got my friends hype as fuck whenever we played really good songs
I just finished mgr today on normal, NG+'d it in Hard in like 3 hours, I've never seen a game become so easy when replaying it a second time.

because Amalur Reckoning isn't fun at all when you aren't way outleveled.
>Somehow reach the boss of a quest

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning had absolutely shit level scaling, all enemies your level were easy as fuck even on the hard setting. Bosses too. Plus, non-story/faction quests were all MMO level garbage. However, if you went way into higher level areas and fought enemies with names colored red because they were so overleveled the game got really fun. You could beat any enemy on skill alone.
The quest I was talking about was the end of some fae quest where you fight 2 normal threshes and a big thresh. Regular threshes on their own were a hard enemy at my level because of their immunity.
Fighting over The Crown was the only fun I ever had in that game. Who gives a fuck if the rest of the continent burns?

This happened during one of my FTL runs. Halfway through I lost all of my crew except my engine guy while caught in some solar flare or something, forgot which. I was about to quit, but decided to ride it out and figured I'd die in the next jump.
I made it to the last sector and got to the boss's final form. My engine guy now captain was experiencing losing all of his allies again while my ship got fucked up by everything. Final attack from ship goes off. Mine goes off almost immediately after. My weapons are faster.
No misses. All hits. Nothing but enemy debris remained. That moment marked my first FTL victory ever.
>Wyvern trying to fly his bitch ass away

>Set up the traps and shit before he even lands

Also, soloing a powerful monster and using Long Sword, and getting the killing blow on the end of the big combo and sheathing your sword as it collapses makes for a good FUCK YEAH moment
