I think this one is right up there but what is the point where you just sit back and say "What the hell is wrong with the developer...this shouldn't be in this game!"

Mine would still have to be the end of 1942 for the NES.

I had battled through something like 50 levels and expected something grand to happen at the end.  This is what I got:

"Congrat-
ulations"


I just about busted the tv open with a sledgehammer.

Oh and in answer to your other question: Yes. Yes I do believe love can bloom on the battlefield.  Just ask Ryu Hayabusa.

Mine was when I played the first Resident Evil.  It had been out a couple years and I had the plan to start with the first and work my way through all of them.  Well....

I got to the "master of unlocking" part and laughed so hard that I couldn't respect the game anymore.  I've still never completed any RE game, mostly because of that lame moment.

Any appearance by Dante in SMT: Nocturne. As one of the walkthroughs on Gamefaqs observed: 'And here comes Dante to ruin the game again!'  Dumbest idea evar. (It doesn't help that I hate the character Dante even in his own series.  "Look how bad and cool this guy is!" make impress 15 year-olds - it just annoys the hell out of me.')

Ok new rule-if you post a screenshot you must post what game its from. Ron, I'm looking at you smile

My moment may be a bit controversial. Everything during and after killing the first Sith Lord in KOTOR 2 just makes absolutely no sense to me. Very dissapointing.

Tingle: Okay, you're doing great but now you have to go find the 8 pieces of the Triforce

Dimmona: Huh?

Tingle: ...and to find the 8 pieces of the Triforce you have to first hunt around for the 8 Triforce maps.

Dimmona: Wait, what!?

Tingle: Oh, I forgot to mention - I'm going to charge you a few thousand bucks to translate each map.  Yeah, I know I'm supposed to be helping you, but I need some way to fund my gay lifestyle.

Dimmona: WTF!?!?!?  That does it.... <hits power button>

i don't know,... between otacon's soulful lament & tingle's cheerfully limp-wristed fetch-tasking, you all are slamming some of what are my favorite moments smile ...

the one that sticks out for me was the final boss battle in ffx - it didn't spoil the game for me or anything, but, following all that'd preceeded it, it was sooo anti-climactic...

I hated that song too.  It didn't help that I had to replay that battle a couple times to beat it.

This sounds strangly like what I did.....I could have had a new Triforce forged with the jack I spent with that fruity freak.

Actually, I think the lamest moment is in MGS2 where Jack's talking to his girlfriend, having a long dialogue about their past and future relations... in the middle of a 'ing mission to save the world.

heh : check out the MGS commentary on VGCats.com.

As to lamest moment ever? I'd have to say the Syndicate end scene ranked right up there. The ending to Ultima 9 was also an effen eyesore.

oh, and the hand monsters in zelda (WW) that drag you to the beginning of the dungeon suck ass.

I think I've cleansed most of the older ones from my memory, but I still remember one lame moment: the final villain from Final Fantasy X.

I agree.  I went through the trouble of power-leveling my characters ,building them up, got 2 of the god weapons...and then killed the final boss in 3 hits.

This is reaching back a bit, but the ending of Eye of the Beholder... I played for probably 20 hours straight, just to get a lame text message and booted to the DOS prompt.

That is a classic entry in the Hall of Lame.

Well, the game is not balanced to be so difficult as to stand up to people who just grind levels up and get all the hidden weapons-you certainly can beat it easily that way, but would you rather it be balanced for that so that regular parties could basically never beat the finall boss? Because that is exactly what would happen-there is a huge difference in those weapons.

There is actually a secret ending to that game.  It's so old, I don't know if I should put it in a spoiler caption.

Anyway, there is some wand you can use to 'push' the beholder back.  In the back of his lair there is a spike trap which will kill you if you walk into it.  Or, obviously, him if he is pushed into it.

Hmm... from MobyGames-

Quote
Eye of the Beholder was praised for its stylish cinematic opening sequence, which dazzled players and set the stage of the game to follow.

However, since the final game's size weighed in at 5 3.5" disks, SSI decided to cut the ending cinematic, figuring very few players would see it anyway, and it was not worth the extra cost of the sixth disk.

When EotB became a smash hit, MANY players who slogged it out to the end of the game were not amused when they were "rewarded" with a simple text message and unceremoniously dropped to DOS.

SSI soon realized their mistake, but the damage could not be undone. Many players assumed the game simply never had an ending, never suspecting it exsited but was not included!

The Amiga version was later released with the final endgame graphic.

I forgot which one it was, Quake 1 or 2 (or both?), but that was a pretty craptastic ending as well.

Yeah, gotta go with that one. I was looking at the screen in disbelief just about every time I tried to save "What the fuck? I have this very important (and increasingly confusing) mission to do here. Shut up, bitch!" It was ridiculous. Still, it's one of the best games I've ever played.
