Coyote Smith, the 28-year-old ‘petty thief’, earned his place in the top un-Nintendo moments by constant use of his catchphrase: “You’re f***ed”. It’s a line he tends to yell whenever he strikes a Heaven Smile’s weak spot, but strangely one that he didn’t use after coming across a woman halfway through the first level who had her entire back half sliced off. No, that time we used it instead.
17) EVERYBODY RUNS
Minority Report was a terrible game with one insanely cool feature: the ability to pick stunned enemies up off the floor and hurl them off balconies, skyscrapers and through glass panels. Bodies end up as mangled as a circus contortionist who’s been hurled off the trapeze, which, by our reckoning, makes it well worth watching on YouTube.
18) DEATH OF THE LUMAS
Super Mario Galaxy
When Matthew staggered into the office crying about the end of Galaxy we were shocked for two reasons. Firstly, that he was even able to complete it in the first place, and secondly, that he could ever have misjudged an ending so badly. We laughed as he sobbed about everyone dying and poked fun at his simple reasoning...
19) MERYL’S HIDING PLACE
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
There may be buckets of blood, urinating guards and unconscious, naked men left in the doggy position with nothing but a handful of blurred pixels to hide their shame, but it’s Meryl’s ingenious method of hiding her detonation override keys that takes the award for the most shocking moment in Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. How does she do it? By hiding it up her (Snip. You can fill in the rest- Ed). Come to think of it, that may explain where Peach kept Toad hidden in Super Smash Bros Melee and Brawl...
20) GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS
Accept our apologies, but we’re not picking just one moment from Manhunt 2. We’re picking the entire game. Not only is it the most bloodthirsty game, well, ever- it’s 10 times more visceral than the PS2 version thanks to the Wii’s motion-controlled kills.
