    I hated the one in Max Payne, cause I couldn't do the trail of blood, I had to get a friend to do it. Other than that frustrating part, the rest of it was awesome.

    The new Max Payne is nothing like the 1st two which in my opinion were good and unique games. The latest one was a copy of everything else out there.

    lol "Because Final Fantasy." Also, you could add the ENTIRE GAME of Deadly Premonition Director's cut. Maybe.

    Speaking of Max Payne, I loved the flashback chapters in number 3. Made me miss the first two.

    I'm surprised that weird sex flashback from Max Payne 2 didn't trump the scene above. There was nothing sexy about it.

    Awesome list! Flash Back sequences are awesome but even more when they're weird.

    The Scarecrow encounters were my favorite part of Arkham Asylum.

    The one at the start of Uncharted 3 is pretty cool, where you find out how Drake and Sully met (I think, been a while since I played it). Also, despite them not being playable sequences, the 1000 Years Of Dreams parts of Lost Odyssey are probably the best bit of the game.

    It's not a flashback as such but the prologue to Last of Us was just as effective as some of these mentioned. I also loved playing Cloud's flashback as [Zack's] first mission as a member of SOLDIER. Just because you're backed up by Sephiroth himself. That was pretty cool. And then you have pretty much the entirity of Bioshock Infinite. Let's not even get started on that!

    Yay for Flashback!

    possible honorable mention: Uwe Boll's HotD. one scene basically flashes back to itself.

    Good God, I forgot how wonderful that film is. Might have to give it another watch at the weekend.
