    I'm legitimately surprised the "Smoke a cigarette" button from Vanquish didn't make the cut. So stylish.

    Can't remember the name but there was a baseball game where you could just go around beating people up.

    I kinda liked complimenting people and tipping my hat to them in Red Dead Redemption...silly I know,but it was still kind of cool

    The 'Taunt Button' in fighting games. Especially in Super Smash Brothers

    "With that lot already weighing on your conscience (and potential police record), a few swears are just a drop in the ocean." But what is an ocean, but a multitude of drops?

    I remember that in one basketball video game, there was a travel button. I never really understood why it was there.

    It's going back a bit, but IK+ (International Karate +) on the Atari ST and Amiga had all sorts of secret codes you could type in to make random things happen, unrelated to the game itself. The greatest of all was a simple press of the T key, which made the trousers of the combatants fall down. I must say I'm a little disappointed in Justin for not including/remembering this one :-p

    I love the hidden blade button in the AC games. Just walking down the street... *fwip*... *fwip*... *fwip*...

    How about the button where you eject these crappy games from the console? Odd World was cool though.

    I've got one: Shadow of the Colossus' Agro button. AaaGggRROOO! Plus the "Jason" button is still a context sensitive button, only during the mall does it call your dumb kid.

    I know this probably doesn't count, but I love it when you have the ability to spit at a zombie in Dead Rising.

    I like the "mario!" button from luigi's mansion

    Lol I love just randomly barking in okami. I'll bark just for the hell of it while running around, after beating demons... at people.... at animals... at a rock. Not sure why though really.

    Army of Two has the 'fist bump' button.
  • archnite - November 9, 2012 12:33 p.m.

    But it also did air-guitar, I would call it the Bro Button

    In Planescape: Torment I absolutely loved when you'd attempt to take off clothing or other things from your companions. Especially the famale ones, since you don't expect it. Annah you just straight up get pissed and tell you to "Get yer' dirty mitts off, ye dirty wee rat!", while Grace would politely explain why she does not take off her clothes. It really makes you rethink companion armors in RPGs.

    I like taunting in in Mario Party. Most people I play that game with don't even know about it, and go crazy screaming "What is that noise and where is it coming from!?" All the while there's a slight grin on my face.

    That awful 50 Cent game, Blood on the Sand also had a swear button. You could even spend money/points/whatever in-game in order to buy more swears.
