The ending to Sucker Punch.

Every. Single. Time.

Oh, and Wreck-it-Raplh. If you've seen the movie, you know what scene specifically. Damn that silly movie makes my eyes water.

Finished all the end game stuff in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and beat it. Now moving on to Re: Chain of Memories.

Xemnas The Mysterious Stranger is pretty easy when he doesn't use that binding attack.

^ I'm torn on the KH OSTs.  For the most part it's more the original areas that shine for me than the Disney worlds (with a few exceptions of course).

I'm wondering if they'll release the HD OSTs soon.  I definitely loved the reworked tracks a ton.

I adored her work on Radiant Historia and loved her for Super Mario RPG (which was an OST that knew when to be cutesy and knew when to "sound" like an RPG).

.... I'm just generalizing a lot.  GO SHIMOMURA.  Uematsu got Distant Worlds, I'd love to see other Final Fantasy composers being worked in there.

One of the reasons I'm getting 2.5 HD is to see if she can somehow make Fantasia alla Marcia even *MORE* amazing than it already is.

God, that game absolutely had the best cutscene moments of any RPG, especially of that generation. Skirmish of the Silver Dragons was a fantastic re-imagining of the Battle with the Giant of Babil from IV.

I want to play a Pokemon game where the MC beats one of the leaders of the evil organization of the week, and the leader is like, "Oh, no. Your Pokemon beat my Pokemon. Now I guess I have to give up on my evil plans. Oh wait, my mistake, I myself seem to be perfectly fine. Okay, I'm off to go continue taking over the world. Keep up the good work, kid!"

Not to mention the in-game Zora/Goron tunics are as effortless and unimaginative as possible. Just Link's standard costume dyed blue and red respectively.

Project Diva F 2nd: Cleared all songs on Normal. That last one was disgustingly challenging, for the sheer fact that the music video made it nearly impossible to actually see the prompts. The one before it wasn't much better as the tempo in a few places was absolutely insane.

I plan on finally being able to afford a PS4 when Type-0 HD is released.

If I don't enjoy Type-0 HD, it's not like I was NEVER going to get a PS4. I'd hardly think of that money as wasted.

I finally stumbled onto Project Diva F 2nd's answer to the first's Nega*Posi Continues in the form of Envy Cat Walk.

How can one get a good score in a rhythm game for a song with no coherent rhythm!?

I thought of one more (again, these are more personal moments than just events that happen in games)

Was fighting the true final boss in Persona 4 and I get to the part at the end of the fight where it starts casting it's one hit KO's and your other party members take the hits for your MC. The music lined up such that as the other party members were pushing the MC out of the way the music was playing the sort-of Grand Finale sounding remix of Reach Out to the Truth at the end of the loop.

I was absolutely floored with how climactic it felt with that part of the music playing. I still get goosebumps just thinking about it.

The good ending in Chrono Cross + ending credits. 'nuff said.

Had I thought of it, I would have specifically mentioned successfully casting Chrono Cross. That was truly one of the greatest moments in gaming.

e doesn't realize that flushing the toilet causes a very fine mist of toilet bowl water to spray up from the bowl and out to the general vicinity of the bowl (i.e. easily in range of that rig).

Everyone remember this next time you touch your phone/ds/etc

I never bring anything with me into a bathroom. If I have my DS with me, it's securely in a pocket that can close.

I also had a wow moment in Shadow of the Colossus. It was when I was fighting that giant bird Colossus, I was doing the whole stabbing the wings bit, and I missed the prompt that it was about to turn over. So I cling on as it flips upside down, hanging on for dear life but knowing any second my stamina was going to run out and I'd have to go through the annoying hassle of getting back on it.

Sure enough, my stamina finally fails and I star falling... right at the same moment the bird starts to flip the remaining 180 degrees. I fall right on to the other wing and safely stay on. It was truly a moment where I had to take a breath and ask myself if that really just happened.
--------------------------------------------------

The endings to both Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep both really punched me in the emotional gut and proved that Square Enix could certainly write a prequel when they tried.

In both cases you knew the story was going to end tragically for the characters you were playing, but it still didn't prepare you for the way Square chose to present the final moments of each game.

Code:
The epilogue of Birth by Sleep where Ansem meets Aqua in the Darkness and tells her about Sora's exploits got me particularly choked up

If I think of any others I'll just do another post.

Project Diva F 2 really takes the sequel thing seriously. I mean, yeah I'm pretty out of practice since I haven't played the first one since June, but some of the earlier songs on Normal pull out some tricks that you didn't see in the first one until some of the later songs on Hard.

Loving every minute of it, though. There hasn't been many songs that have stood out as obvious favorites, but there have been a couple and there also haven't been any songs I've just not enjoyed. Really glad Clover Club made the cut, that song is just pure diluted happiness in song form.

I also wouldn't mind if the new weapon is the Double Clawshot.
