Have you ever witnessed something in a game where you just go WTF?

In persona 3, when you do the Hermit social link, you learn MAYA (some chick you met on the internet) is actually your teacher, Ms.Toriumi. Not only did you find this out, you learn that she has a crush on you. I found this strange because when you talk to her IRL (in the game I mean) she seems like another NPC.

Uncharted 3 online co-op mission, sanctuary to be specific. Nathan Drake spawned without a head, floating and sitting in an Indian style position. Even his hands were in a "zen" pose.

I said "What the fuck?!" when I got the anti-piracy screen on my legit copy of EarthBound. I turned on my Super Nintendo and realized I forgot to plug it it so I left the power switch on and plugged the Super Nintendo in and the anti-piracy screen showed up. I guess the game thought that it had more or less than 8 kilobytes of SRAM because that is what causes the anti-piracy thing to show up. At least it isn't like the anti-piracy thing that deletes all of the saves.

First time this happened to me in Split/Second made me go "What the fuck?! They brought down an air traffic control tower!?" first, before moving on to "OH SHIT!!!" soon after. I did not survive my first time.

On a similar note, the crashing airplane in the Dead Air campaign of Left 4 Dead 1 also gave me a similar reaction.

Soul Calibur V's story mode made me loudly ask "What the fuck?" several times. Mostly due to the very short length, attention given to only two, three characters at most, lack of cutscenes (instead having to often watch power-point presentations with voice-overs, basically) and the fact that it wasn't even finished, considering that a lot of planned shit was cut due to time constraints. Also, Kilik becoming a mimic character. You know what? Just about everything other than character creation and online play made me ask "What the fuck?"

They should have just delayed the fucking game, mumble grumble...

Playing Tetris (or "Russian Falling Blocks" if you will) in Trials Evolution as a user created mini-game gave me a joyful "WTF!?" moment.

Finding out the Chromehounds multiplayer servers were shut down. Shame, really, because that game is bitching.

Several user-created car designs and vinyls on Forza Motorsports 3/4 gave me a good "WTF!?" moment.

The entire concept of Katamari Damacy and the following games is one gigantic "WTF!?". I still love those games though.

That's all I can think of for now.

Fallout 3, Messiah (FULL GOOD Karma Run) with Fawkes and Dogmeat in Megaton.

I donated to the church randomly and Fawkes went on a rampage, killed Dogmeat and everyone in town. Charon tried to kill him with a shotgun, but before he got a shot out his body was blown to bits (made it odd since there was still audio even though Charon was dead). Dogmeat's dead body then randomly teleported to the top of the defused atom bomb and fawkes disappeared.

Oh fallout 3.

By "this" I mean around the 1:40 mark. Apparently Newgrounds doesn't support links to specific times in Youtube videos.

Because everyone in the tower was a dick. Killing is okay as long as you don't like them, according to Bethesda.

It has to be said: The colonel from MGS2 the moment he goes insane. Now that had me thinking what the hell was going on but then I saw that it was intentional for the game. Still one of the finest moments from that game.

I was close to turning off my console.

The part that almost made me switch off my console was when it plays the Game Over screen despite you not actually dying. I was so confused at first because I knew that I still had a load of health. I thought it might have been Snake who died but then when I looked at the small screen in the corner that shows you where you died, I saw that people were still fighting and realised that it wasn't real. That really came close to fooling me the first time it happened.

If I remember correctly in order of the anti piracy measures for that game....

Level 1: You just get a message saying you have a pirated/bootleg copy not compatible with your SNES...
Level 2: If level 1 of security is bypassed then the game becomes a little harsher with far more enemies everywhere making the game harder, kind of becomes funny since some enemies will appear where enemies naturally aren't programmed to appear

forgot how level 3 and 4 worked

Level 5: The game crashes during the final battle against Pokey and Giygas.... all save files are erased!

One of the few wtf moments I've seen in gaming for me was Silent Hill 3 where I walked into the room with mannequins, walked to the one side to see if there were any items of use, hear a sound, go back to check the other side to see the mannequin is bleeding for no reason.

How original.

For me, probably driving out of a plane in a tank in Saints Row: The Third. Or managing to skyjack a banshee in Halo Reach after jumping off the Spire.

. Metal Gear Solid 2 - two words "Fission mailed"
. Metal Gear Solid 3 - All the possible ways The End can own you, and that freaky nightmare/game demo that activates if you save and restart the game in the cell after the torture room scene.
. Skyrim - First time I saw two Giants fighting a dragon and also win.
. Super Mario 64 - First encounter with the haunted piano
. Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time - First encounter with a Wall Master.

more that I can't think of right now.

Oh yeah, that scene, that was amazing.

Also the entire opening of Final Fantasy X-2. Square gets a lot of hate but I have to hand it them, they sure know how to completely fuck up a story in the shortest time possible.

It's not the WallMasters that I thought were the WTF enemies. For me it was definitely the ReDead. When it looks at you, makes that screaming noise and then slowly starts walking towards you. Then when it actually gets to you it wraps itself around you.

I remember being totally confused when I saw that. I was 10 back then and finally completed ffx. So I felt like yuna wasn't a "good girl" anymore.

Or when your mini map turns into a half naked japanese chick? That was awesome.

The End really couldn't own you though, just plop out the needles. There were actually more ways to defeat him in game.

And the dream sequence was actually a real game I believe

Well I know that there more than one way to defeat him. I believe there are three possible ways. When I say 'own' I don't mean kill you. I mean those possible outcomes where him one hit sedates you and carries you all the way back to lab. That is worse than death in MGS.

And the dream sequence was actually a real game I believe

It was intended to be a full game, the dream sequence was a demo of that game. But it was never completed. But nevertheless, probably one of the best easter eggs in gaming.
