4 Moments In Gaming That Absolutely Nobody Can Explain

GP: "Video games are clearly magic. This is a fact. No matter how many hours you can play of a game without any interruptions, someone will just happen to walk in during that one moment where things are at their most awkward. And no matter how hard you might try to explain it, there's just no way you'll be able to get it across in words without looking extremely weird.

While there are plenty of instances that people are familiar with, the laughing scene from Final Fantasy X and the mission in Metal Gear Solid 2 where you play completely naked just to name a few, there are still plenty more we can talk about. Now for your reading entertainment, here are four more instances you need to worry about." (Catherine, Culture, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, PC, Persona 3, PS2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360)

Hahahaha! That was a great article, loved the Persona one... I remember the first time I made Satan on there, I had to summon it over and over immediately after acquiring it just to hear him say it aloud... Totally worth it... It's hilarious.

The eye machine in dead space 2.. the difference between failing and success is huge

Especially on hardcore and luckily I got by it on my first try.

Every party-banter in Dragon Age: Origins.

lol I got a kick out of the RDR one. I cant imagine explaining why full frontal nudity was just shown on the screen to my suprised family. Had to be a little embarassing.

Evoker use was ridiculously unnecessary when I first started playing P3, then it eventually turned into a really badass way of summoning a Persona after I got into the game.

i remember watching the persona evoker thing for the first time and i was like wtf.

pretty negative and over opinionated article if you ask me. the writer comes across as a douchebag who has lived a somewhat sheltered life.

There are other ways to go about explaining awkwardness.

If you're uncomfortable with male sexuality it says more about your insecurities than the quality of the game.

If you're freaked out by it then maybe you're not grown up enough to be playing a game that deals with people who are open with their body.

"Did that girl just shoot herself in the head?"

that's a boy but as usual with the japanese trend, there's no difference.

He was referring to other characters in the game, and you can clearly tell the difference in persona games, its not like other jrpgs with effeminate male characters. just sayin'.
segamon  +   1185d ago
i see, well thanks for the clarification.
no offense intended.. and i agree, Persona is different.. in almost every way.
SeraphimBlade  +   1185d ago
that was the joke. the rest of that caption says he has to explain two things. one being the head-shooting, two being the main character being a boy

One of my favorite WTF moments is from Killer7.
IAmLee  +   1185d ago
the ending to 'castle crashers'...
TheFinalEpisode  +   1185d ago
Lol, Yeah! It's safe to say that it was a very unexpected ending
KwietStorm  +   1185d ago
lol that shit didn't even attempt to make sense

I getting Persona 3 for my Vita tomorrow.I haven't played it before but since it's on sale on PSN I'm gonna pick it up.Unless,of course, the sale has already ended then I'll get Sound Shapes instead.
CaptainSheep  +   1184d ago
Get Persona 3 even if it's not on sale. The game's awesome. Memorable characters, awesome storyline.
Oh, and, awesome username. xD

or the awkward moment when the president grabs Raiden's crotch or when Volgin grabs Snake's crotch.
InTheLab  +   1185d ago
lol...forgot about that...
TheFinalEpisode  +   1185d ago
Also in the final battle in MGS4 Liquid kisses Snake is you don't resist one of his attacks...
InTheLab  +   1185d ago
Speaking of MGS...

Johnny taking a crap in a barrel in the middle of a warzone. That's not the part that's the wtf. It's how Snake uses the same damn barrel for the rest of the mission.

Every time I need to hide, I hide in the poop barrel....

In MGS2 there is a part where a guard is taking a piss over a railing on the outside of a strut. You can walk under it and give Raiden a golden shower. I was just doing that and laughing hysterically when my mom walked in. The confused look on her face was really something.

well i found ocelot calls awesome, it is not unexplainable. he is an ocelot afterall.
NBT91  +   1185d ago
LOL that picture of Old Snake is amazing.
rpd123  +   1185d ago
I'm glad that I can expect that in Red Dead Redemption now. I'm just playing through it now and that's not something I want to happen in front of my family or brother.
Soldierone  +   1185d ago
How about Duke Nukem Forever as a whole? You'd literally have to play that entire game hoping no one that has never touched a Duke Nukem game walks in lol.....
KrimsonKody  +   1185d ago
I personally thought the Ocelot cat call was cool.
But cool!

& it's funny how the article mentioned that, because just recently I had to explain that "call" to a non-gamer, which unfortunately lead to me having to explain the whole MGS saga!

Another weird gaming moment;
Trying to explain why in a horror/survival game is undead nurses, with knives, seemingly having a an orgy & orgasmically twitching.
Silent Hill.
