    Uncharted train sequence was dope….but the falling out of a plane over a desert in the 3rd one is sooo amazing

    Well mgs 3 is my favorite game of all time and when snakes starts to say how the boss wasn’t a traitor if not a patriot and had to do it to save the country she loves well.. I felt a knot in my throat, didn’t cried but it was a close one just like in the last of us with Sarah.

    What about the fate of Noble Team at the end of Halo Reach…..

    It's hard to argue against most of these franchises being so important but I would argue against certain moments being taken from a specific franchise.
    For instance the bomb sequence in halo 2 is easily the most iconic moment in the franchise's history and No Russian was the most impactful moment in Call of Duty, the recent remaster brought it's controversy back 11 years later.
    Also Would You Kindly should be #1. It changed what people thought was possible regarding story telling in video games as a genre. It was arguably the first example of traditional art in the video game industry.

    smh the modern warfare 2 ending should’ve been on here

    Instead of the MGS 3 one, I'd take the MGS 4 part where Solid Snake and Liquid Ocelot were fighting on top of Outer Heaven. How the music was changing during different phases of the fight was amazing and sad

    Unpopular Opinions:
    Mass Effect 1 and 3 both had better finales than 2
    The most impactful moment in Kingdom Hearts was the conclusion of Roxas' story at the beginning of KH2
    Putting the bathtub as the moment from Witcher 3 is insulting (the real moment either should have been Gaunter O'Dimm finalizing the deal with Olgierd or the talk with the Baron after he burned down the barn)
    For Soulsborne it should've been the moment Gehrman stands up and pulls out the scythe
    The final battle in New Vegas trumps everything in Fallout 3 combined and it's still not even as good as the mission to assassinate the president or repairing the powerplant

  26. GamingPro1003 4 months ago

    Am I the only one who just doesn’t have a huge amount of love for Modern Warafare and also didn’t really feel the impact of the nuke? Like, I get why everything was a big deal with that game, but it still just didn’t hit me. I personally would’ve replaced the Nuke on here with either No Russian, Nacht Der Untoten loading up after completing the WaW Campaign, or the Reznov twist, and I wouldn’t have it at #1 probably at like #10. This list other than the Nuke and Fortnite was honestly pretty good.

    For me, Link pulling out the master sword in Twilight Princess. It's disappointing that you didn't add any Zelda moment here.
