Favorite Cutscene (games)

Unread postby Jebusrocks » Sun Jun 17, 2007 7:36 pm

I don't know if ths has been mentioned before, but what was your favorite cutscene in all of gaming?? I did this in GS(Gamespot) and the fav there was the hero in God of War having sex with someone (I never played the game before).

One of my fav. cutscene is when Dante kills all those demons with a motorcycle in DMC3

Gotta go for the classics...

1) Final Fantasy VI - Cyan's despair when his wife and child depart on the Phantom Train.

2) Chrono Trigger - When the Nu (actually Belthazar's program within the Nu) asks you to flip off the switch on the Nu's stomach, so the Nu can sleep "beyond the flow of time".

3) Warcraft III: Frozen Throne - Arthas climbing the Frozen Throne.

Yeah, that one was very cool too. Other one worth mentioning would be when Thrall and Grom Hellscream fight Mannoroth.

But my favourite one is still the Arthas one. I can almost feel how cold that place is by watching that CG.

Wow, good question. Most "spectacular" cutscenes are rather obvious ripoffs of old movies. I remember Starcraft as being especially guilty of this, but one scene was pretty good, the one where the Wraith pilots are chatting en route to their target. "So I sez, 'answer THAT and stay fashionable...'"

Another even older game, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, had some great ones. Maybe they should have used that as a script for the fourth movie.
Mithril! The dwarves tell no tales. But just as it was the foundation of their wealth, so also it was their destruction. They delved too greedily and too deep, and disturbed that from which they fled.

I havent played the game in so long that I have no idea what cutscene you are talking about. When exactly during the campaign does this happen if you know?

I can't think very well right now, so I'll just put the first one that I can comes to mind that really amused me. In Bloodrayne, after you beat on of final bosses, she flips the dead boss off. After going through all of that, that was a great cutscene to follow that battle.

I'm almost certain it's in the Terran campaign, before the mission "New Gettysburg".

Very, very good call on that one. That one certainally didn't spring to mind at first, but is certainally worth mentioning. I remember feeling Cyan's pain when watching that for the first time :cry:

Another I must mention is the infamous FFVII clip of Sephiroth putting an end to Aeris. Admittedly, when I watched this for the first time I was surprised and a bit shocked at the end result. I was playing the game just as it goes along, I hadn't read any FAQ's on it, nor did I have any strategy guide for the game, I wanted everything to be a surprise to me, and well, it was!
