    Easy.

    - Exiting the grave in Blood.
    - Exiting the first tunnel in MDK.
    - Walking off the ship in Morrowind.
    - Entering San Francisco in F2 (I think, it's been a while).
    - That cutscene in Thief, of course.
    - That posh party in Planescape: Torment.
    - Introduction of the aliens in Descent: Freespace.
    - We've got hostiles!

    I can't remember the others because it's friday.

  7. I replayed MotB many times, and I find that combination of its atmosphere, characters, storyflow and gameplay alterations is better than its individual parts.
    This particular conversation is not as sophisticated as you circlejerking pretentious faggots claim it to be. It's a proper use of lore and exploitation of lack of ruleset regarding FR Pantheon in general and all the bullshit that is Time of Trouble.

    The backstory is much stronger than portrayal of the individual omnipotent being that basically boils down to "lol u cannot grasp my perfect plan "

    I'm not being edgy here, even, just genuinely don't see the appeal and reasoning behind the praise

    Though the Shivans showing up is no surprise, the music and the tone of this briefing always stuck with me.

    Also

    I was really impressed by Shadow Warrior (2013) ending. You have to pay attention to the plot before to understand it, though.

    Killing all three of the companions in that is even better. Everyone hated Dead Money even though it was so much better than anything in the main game or other other expanions bawwwww

    I think I killed Domino in my first DM playthrough, but it felt awkward and sad, even if he's supposed to be a manipulative SOB. DM had the best companions, arguably.
