"oh Shit" -moments In Games. 2012-01-10 08:30:07 Reply

Name some moments in whatever game that make you go "SHIT SHIT SHIT" and wave your arms frantically while fearfully sucking your own thumb while you beg God to rescue you and load your life 5 minutes earlier.

For me it'd always be the "NUCLEAR LAUNCH DETECTED" from StarCraft 1, I don't know why, but I've developed an irraitonal fear of that scary ass voice telling me that some part of my empire is going to be absolutely destroyed and I have to look for a tiny red dot which, if it isn't among the harvesters is going to be impossible to find.
And if your color was Red, you were SCREWED.

In StarCraft 2 this occurence was a lot less scary though, since the nuclear missle was nerfed horrendously.

Well what you literally described is more something I do when I'm playing through a game that I've beaten multiple times already and somehow end up at the verge of death because I'm being too careless. Along with that I then realize that I haven't saved my game since an hour ago and will have to redo a lot if I get killed now.

I think the last time was when I did another Final Fantasy 9 playthrough.

When your last weapon breaks in Dead Island and you're on top of a vehicle with about four or five zombies around you. Then you have to kick at them all for about ten minutes to kill them all. Even worse if a Ram or those handless zombies are around.

In Pokemon when you get that legendary down in the red and it keeps escaping. You use your weakest move and defeat it. Good thing you can save before hand.

Shiny Pokemon would like to have a word with that. Only thing is that you're probably never ever going to see one again if you screw it up, unlike with the typical legendary encounter.

Goddamn shiny Cryogonal. Him and his 25 catch rate.

I don't know how to frantically wave my arms and suck my thumb at the same time.
Also, when you've got an empty clip and no time to reload.

I've caught more than enough shinies over time. I have yet to encounter one in Black and White yet. Remember when I got Pokemon Platinum I encountered a shiny Ponyta on my first day. Good times.

Also, when the Nemesis jumps through the window when you're in the police station on Resi Evil 3. That used to scare the shit out of me EVERY TIME. What a dick.

In Resident Evil 1, when that one Hunter jumps on to the screen from behind a wall/out of an alcove. I ALWAYS shit my pants when this sucker appears on screen, even though I have beaten the game serveral times...

In metroid Prime 2 when you are on top of a ledge and you see Quadraxis a giant fucking robot whoch is not moving and seems not to be working but you know that when you will take that elevator down he will come to life and you will have to fight it, then you hesitate for a while and understand you need to go down, while going down the elevator you say to yourself, "well maybe he won't come to life" then when you arrive at the bottom you realize he is way bigger than it seemed from up there, holy shit he's fuckhuge! Then the cutscene starts and he activates and you cry. OH SHI-

Then the best boss fight ever follows.

Probably this one time in Fallout 3. Down in that Hideaway place. There's this long creepy corridor with doors along each side. I killed a few Radscoripions on my way in, then when I reached this corridor, I began opening the doors and looting the rooms, when I came across one which my compass indicated there was an enemy in. I figured it would just be a normal Radscorpion and this was supposed to be some sort of creep moment that wouldn't actually scary. Boy was I wrong.

I opened the door pretty casually, and to my surprised found there was nothing in there, no Radscorpion, nothing. I edged in very slowly, as my compass was still telling me an enemy was there. I peaked around each corner and saw there was no enemy there, so I thought maybe the enemy was in a room just behind this one.

I walked in when HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK - A motherfucking Giant Radscorpion appears out of fucking nowhere RIGHT in front of me. And considering I really fucking hate Giant Radscorpions, I was in a dark room and already the tension was really high, I jumped a mile and almost dropped my controller but managed to pause in time to catch my breath. I probably would have shouted some form of obscenities but my dad was in the room.

Probably one of the scariest moments in a game for me, even though this thread isn't about scariest moment it made me think "SHITSHITSHIT" etc. etc.

Pretty much every near-death in an RPG game that didn't have a (very effective) autosave.

Heavy Rain on the Bulldozer fight scene when you fail to get your Triptocaine, and The Doc level when you're about to get butchered by the Doc then you fight him.

Seriously. that nearly scared the HELL out of me, especially on the Bulldozer.

Click my sig, it says so.

I never even made it through the demo of the game because of that section. But then, I'm no good with pretty much any survival horror games... My heart has never thumped so hard as it did when I got in the water and heard that fucking thing behind me start crashing through the water... I swear I nearly had a heart attack.

As for other games... "Oh Shi...!" pretty much describes every moment I have in Dark Souls... but most notable is when I'm fighting a Knight... Block, takes away all my stam, knocks me off balance then I have a split second to get out of the way of being impaled by whatever weapon he's using to slaughter me with.
It's not as bad now that I have a decent weapon to kill them with, but the first one I fought was felt harder than the early bosses because of my lack of gear. And every time he hit me he took away half my health.

Another one for me probably is from Unreal 1, it has struck in my mind and soul as another irrational fear, the FIRST motherfucking Skaarj in the black corridor who appears out of a hidden chamber and starts putting his long talons up your unprepared cunt, it's not that SHITSHITSHIT nowadays, but I still pretty much dread that whole area.

RE5, a guy with a chainsaw. His laughing, his high tolerance to pain, instant kill, plays dead, these guys were bad news.....in the beginning of the game. Eventually with enough upgrading a shotgun blast to the face would stop them. If you want an enemy with lasting horror, consult those damn roaches that regenerate. The only way to kill them is when they expose their weakspot.....usually you just run and hope they don't get you.

Juggernauts in Uncharted 3 multiplayer, if your in the wrong spot or playing siege these bastards will kill your entire team, the fact they never die ads to the tension. 5 clips later and they're still standing.....the only way to kill one quickly is with a cluster bomb between the legs, or unless you turn yourself into a juggernaut as well. One problem, your juggernaut lasts 30 seconds, his is permanent. Think you can take one down in 30 seconds? Probably not.

The dog in Enslaved: odyssey to the west. The damn thing is determined to snap your neck, however it's even scarier when it goes after Trip, then you gotta distract that giant hulking son of a bitch. Most of the game they are invincible, the only way to kill them is if they are boss fights....think of them as nemesis from RE2, follow you everywhere, don't die unless it's crucial to the story.


I'm just a dreamer.
