Great moments in video gaming

Star Wars Battlefront

Playing as a Stormtrooper in Mos Eisley, cleaning out this hive of scum and villainy who dare to support the rebels. I go rushing round one corner shooting down a Wookie with a bowcaster on the way, only to stop dead in happy amazement to see Darth Vader there too, slaughtering rebels cheerfully with his lightsaber. Cool. Really, really cool.

So he finishes up this bunch of rebels and heads off to take the cantina. I follow along, enjoying the hell out of this. We get to the cantina, and are greeted by a flurry of shots, to which I throw a grenade at them in response. Grenade bounces straight back off a wall and blows up Darth Vader.

And all I can think at that moment is "I'm a dead, dead man."

Now that is absorbing gaming.

Pansy Throwin' Down

*cackles*

See, now that's what I would have liked to have seen in SW:G... a little more interaction from the 'main characters' as opposed to them staying in static locations. Oh how I would have loved to have come across Vader... and then, being loyal to the Rebellion and likely on a hit list somewhere... I would have ran away as fast as possible.

Sam - Oh crap

Trust me, two levels later I ran into Luke Skywalker, and that was so not fun.

Me and all my Stormtrooper buddies panicking and spraying him with energy shots, and he's just using his lightsaber to reflect them back. And then he jumps towards us, and kills the guy next to me with one stroke. So, like any sensible Empire trooper, I legged it.

Unfortunately, we were on Cloud City, and I went straight off the edge.

Hahahhah! That's as funny as tybalt_quin accidentally killing herself by cutting down a tree with her light-sabre only to have it fall on her... :grin:
