Before we go any further, please note: there are spoilers ahead.Luke Plunkett's Favorite Gaming Moments of 2010The Only Compass That I Need (Red Dead Redemption): It's ironic that for a game where so much of the fun is to be found in crafting your own approach to the story that Red Dead's most emotional moment comes from a swiss replica watches scripted event. Having gone to hell and back in the name of his family, it seems almost too good to be true that, as John Marston makes his way back home to his wife and son, the game is actually going to give you a happy ending...Not So Funny Now (Mass Effect 2): Towards the end of Mass Effect 2, the game flips your experience completely on its head.
Where previously you've spent every passing second as a custom-built killing machine ploughing through hordes of alien dead, you suddenly find yourself controlling Joker, the crippled, non-combatant pilot of the Normandy. As you limp him around the ship, you're given a rare insight into how the game's enemies appear to “normal” people, the ones without big guns and special powers. Once little more than replica brand watches target practice, they now appear terrifying.I Believe I Can Fly (Just Cause 2): There are almost too many “open world” games on the market these days to count, but none have ever come close to matching the feeling of freedom that Just Cause 2 offers.
Calling for a chopper only to promptly jump out of it, thousands of feet in the air, the wind whipping at your slick hair and ground rushing up to meet you was the most exhilarating thing video games could offer in 2010.The Defeat Of France (Napoleon: Total War): Entirely a self-created moment, but one that's testament to the replica watch gift work done by the team at Creative Assembly. At the culmination of a grand campaign that had run for almost three weeks, and at the end of a lighting campaign that had surged from Marseille up the very spine of France, my British armies - the last free forces in Europe - were closing in on Paris.
