    The trailer was incredible too. Capture the setting with a few images and notes. Historic indeed.

  2. Honestly, no. The beast as a villain was fairly generic fantasy space opera magic power. It wasn't near as ominous as Taidan chasing after you throughout the galaxy and you having to always stay on your toes to escape. The openning has this sense of wonderment and discovery mixed with incredible sorrow and ... bafflement at the brutality of upcoming events.

    One of my favourite and most memorable scenes from a computer game, albeit no the only one:

    "This is what my eyes see my love, unfettered by the shackles of time
    You shall meet enemies three, but none more dangerous than yourself in full glory
    They are shades of evil, of good and of neutrality given life and twisted by the laws of the planes
    You shall come to a prison, built of regrets and sorrow, where the shadows themselves have gone mad
    There you will be asked to make a terrible sacrifice my love
    For the matter to be layed to rest, you must destroy that which keeps you alive and be immortal no longer
    I know that you must die while you still can, the circle must come to a close my love
    You were not meant for this life
    You must find that which was taken from you and travel beyond into the lands of the dead
    I shall wait for you in deaths halls my love"

    I'm on an actual spaceship. No joke.
    As so many others set the bar well beneath OP request I might as well link this famous scene:



    I think it's pretty good.

    MCA's finest moment - restored.





    There is an incredible amount of depth in conversations like these, the ones regarding the Force and what happened to the Exile. I'm still learning new things each time I play KOTOR 2.

    One reason (of many) why I love The Witcher 2.



    No forced BIG BATTLE!!!1 at the end. Just choice. Granted, two - let him go or kill him, but how many AAA RPGs allow that these days? How many games allow you to have a drink with the big bad and let him walk?

    Yeah, that's the good stuff. I also very much enjoyed the ending. It was so fitting and final:

    Metroid Prime 2 Ending:



    Thought it was a powerful moment at around 2:46, after saving a planet from destruction and an alien race from total extinction she simply waves a short good bye without looking bad.

    Witness Kain - the Eternal Misogynist:



    Damsel In Distress: It seems... I was wrong. I could not carry the fight... alone.

    Kain: You were brave to try.

    Damsel In Distress: Kain... I'm dying.

    Kain: Yes. You are.

    Damsel In Distress: I need your blood. Please. You can save me.

    Kain: I know. Tell me, child. Do you see me ruling Nosgoth?

    Damsel In Distress: Yes, yes. I see it now.

    Kain: And do you believe that Nosgoth rightly belongs to me?

    Damsel In Distress: I do - I believe it, Kain. Please!

    Kain: ... Then you may die, knowing the truth.

    Damsel In Distress: No!

    Kain: You should never have betrayed me. You could have been my queen.

    Damsel In Distress: Kain...

    Kain: Now you have left me alone...

    When I uninstalled Dungeon Siege III. Very procedural content, I'd say, and yet extremely rewarding.
