Do you honestly expect anyone to read that?
It does need some formatting for such a long text....
It is pretty hard to read through, but i did read it though, lol
hm...... the most recent epic moment I've had, was while playing Huxley, The Dystopia, Closed beta 2, anyway, was playing bg's and my favorite character is my phantom, ie, sniper with very little health...... normally its a matter of not being seen in order to get ahead..... but I ended up hopping out of apc right before it blew in front of an enemy radar base, everyone else was in it and died from the tank, and then I no scope head shotted 3 enemy players and took out the tank in about 7 seconds....
Only remarkable thing about this is it was pure luck, no scope headshots dont work in huxley, the energy beam goes off at a random tangent, you have to scope it, unless you get very very lucky
Yes! That really is an epic moment. FS and FS 2 had a few moments that really stand out, but that one really is a pant dirtier the first time it happens.
Ironically I havent played FS2 for ages and dug it out again last night. For the GFX junkies who have never played it because the GFX look too old now, try the FS2Open project. http://scp.indiegames.us/
I had some great moments in Halo combat evolved too. Warthogs driving at gme for a road kill only for me to spring my rocket launcher on them at the last moment come to mind! Capture the flag was pretty awesome too. I'm surprised no one's mentioned F.E.A.R. I found the slo-mo lead to some awesome matrix-style slaughters!
Which one?! I have to agree with this - the most epic gaming moments I have ever experienced were playing the game. Namely, the final battles with Sephiroth . You defeat that massive purple monstrosity (Bizarro Sephiroth), only to be faced with yet another incarnation of Sephiroth (Saifer Sephiroth) who, you eventually discover, is about 100 times harder than the last. Then you're dragged into *ANOTHER* battle with the git afterwards! Although it's impossible to lose the very last battle; I've tried it. Even if you do nothing he eventually attacks, causing pretty much no damage at all, and you automatically counter attack with the final limit break - even if you haven't earned it by the end of the game.
Had a pretty cool moment in Crysis last night that verges on epic. I'd just called in an airstrike on the cruiser with the GPS jammer and, surprise surprise, got told to take out an incoming chopper - I already had loads of KPA troops bearing down on me and was under cross-fire from machine gun emplacements. I managed to take out the chopper at very high altitude with my last two RPG rounds, sprinted past some KPA troops while switching on strength mode, leapt the harbour boundary fence, turned on stealth in mid-air and crept past some more KPA back into the jungle. I promptly hid in the nearest bush just as my suit energy failed - then proceeded to grin manically as patrol after patrol of troops went sauntering past my head, none the wiser as to where I was.
This was the first time I'd truly got to grips with the game and made me realise just how flexible the gameplay is. It also re-affirmed my love for the keyboard & mouse control system - gamepads be damned!
I had some good ones in FEAR. Walking down a corridor once I had an enemy dive through a glass window on my left at one point. I switched on slow mo and ducked through the door into the room he'd just exited. There were two guys in there who immediately flipped over tables and started to hide behind them. Still in slow-mo I put head shots with the penetrator into each one of them, saving the first for last. It was cool, calm and calculated and I did it all before slow-mo finished.
Then I went around the corner and got owned by a rocket turret.
TBH though, the best game for epic moments like this is definitely Hitman: Blood Money. Getting a gun into the White House and then chasing Parchezzi through the building and finishing him with a silverballer shot from the most extreme distance possible? ****ing win.
The last battle in HL2:ep2. Nothing has come close. There's some 'woah' moments, but that one scene left me shaking and thinking, '****, yeah!'
I can only hope ep3 doesn't push further than that otherwise I'll end up a gibbering wreck.
Been saying this since day one
Blood money did have the weak anti-hitman(Mark Purayah and Parchezzi) They were terribly awesome looking clones with a retarded AI.
That said, Shooting through a door and eliminating your target in Blood Money is oddly satisfying.
Both of my favorites came from Planetside, still one of the most underrated mmos, despite some of its issues. Both are also when I ran with the air wing of the 666th DevilDogs.
First was one of the massively organized Galaxy drops. 6 Galaxies, fully loaded. My platoon was tasked with escort duty, my squad in the back, another commander and his out front. Very little resistance till we got to the capital complex, and watching all 6 galaxies empty troops while flying overhead was epic! Lol so much so that I ended up not paying attention and crashed into an enemy MAX suit standing on one of the landing pads.
The other was attacking the capital in a crater (the name escapes me, its been awhile). I was running a reaver squad (full) running out first ahead of 2 squads of liberator bombers. I have a screenie of all of us lined up somewhere. But being given the order to attack, boosting in and hitting all the anti air we could to bank around and see the libs carpet bomb the place was so awesome and precise
Oh and another would have to be running as a sniper later on. Because of the way the game was coded, there were no hitboxes for heads, so no way of nailing someone with a single shot, so snipers worked in pairs over vent. Nothing like calling out a target, counting down and hearing a pair of shots, then getting tells from the guy you killed about how hes gonna report you for cheating lol.
Definitely UNDERRATED. Been years but I remember playing the invisible guy and sneaking around inside my own base to take out one of those mobile spawn points by hacking it.. seeing people still trying to use it and the attack on your base completely falling apart.. Absolutely epic. Ahh I miss that.
1. The first time i saw the view from the top of the Wizards tower in Oblivion
2. Jumping headshot through a wall with scope on CoD4. (That i actually meant )
CS 1.6: Playing as a stand-in for my friends clan, they are on pro-level, and i was just cannon-fodder. However i manage, as one of the last players, to silent-defuse the bomb, as I defuse the same time as a HE-grenade. Terrorists wtf'ing and the crowd goes wild at the randomness
BF2: yesterday i realised i can lie behind one of the trains on Karkand and be totally invisible, due to the small gap, and yet have full view of half of the bridge. I ended on 27-3 kill/death but this mostly applies when there's a stalemate on the bridge
CS1.6. Playing gungame at our voerspiel. Having some real cs-geeks over to drink and they haven't even heard of gungames :O anyway we have a blast and we allways end up competing for the first-place and knifing some noob and everyone goes NOOOOOO/YEEEEEESSSS!
had a few in cs 1.6 when the game still had quake 2 physics.. ran three cs servers back in the hayday- so it was kinda cheap with my low ping, but I used to have alot of guys rage quit when our clan used to open the server
one I remember in particular.. it was dust and I bunny hopped to the door leading to the bomb room.. had an awp, guy came out the left side and I zoomed + got a headshot while he was in mid air rofl right as he hit the corner- he was at full jump height and his body went flying and he logged off while his body was still flying XD
loved that game cause you could almost see the smoke comming out of peoples ears sometimes (alot like quake 2- it was the same engine).. got accused of cheating in the pubs, even banned on some by rookie admins XD just liked how you could separate the good from the real deals in those games and deagle the camping challenged
