The Contenders

11 John Marston's Last Stand - Red Dead Redemtion
12 No...don't leave me... - Half-Life 2: Episode 2
13 Red Dragon Shootout - Mafia II
14 Drunk Germans Singing In the Golden Lion Pub - Medal of Honor: Frontline

This was a very jolly scenario. You had to infiltrate a pub crawling with drunk German officers and you had to persuade the piano player to start a lively drinking song to get past security. The sequence reminded my of the Oom Pah Pah number from Oliver!

16 Greasers Shootout - Mafia II
17 All Ghillied Up - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
18 Seeing The First Colossus - Shadow of the Colossus
19 Jewelry Store Heist - Grand Theft Auto V
20 The First Zombie - Resident Evil
21 Samus Aran Takes Off Her Helmet - Metroid
22 The End of the World - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask


Though Majora's Mask doesn't get all the praise of Ocarina, it is by all means a far better game. Nothing shows this better than the forthcoming doom signalled by the moon, which sets the bar for games in the future in terms of emotion, fear, and sheer creativity.

I agree.Majora's Mask rules. - Lord28

23 They're after you... - Half-Life
24 Stepping Onto Halo - Halo: Combat Evolved
