    Is it really just a video game? This is a video dedicated to some of the most amazing moments in games that I have had the opportunity to play. Video games have been a big part of my life and have become my favorite method of storytelling that exists today. People can write off video games as a lower form of storytelling but I hope this video can show that video games can have just as much emotional poignancy as film. Here's to the amazing moments created by some pretty incredible game developers. Hope you enjoy!
    0:00 Ghost of Tsushima
    0:14 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
    0:28 The Last of Us Part 1
    0:39 Destiny 2: Forsaken
    0:57 Spider-Man
    1:15 Halo 2
    1:28 Modern Warfare 2019
    1:45 Titanfall 2
    1:55 Red Dead Redemption 2
    2:09 Battlefield 1
    2:23 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (again)
    2:45 Destiny 2: Forsaken (again)
    3:10 Spider-Man (again)
    3:26 Ghost of Tsushima (again)
    3:43 The Last of Us Part 1 (again)
    3:55 Modern Warfare Remastered
    4:03 Titanfall 2 (again)
    4:14 Montage
    4:32 Ghost of Tsushima (ending)

      i've never played a Red Dead game but I can still get the pure emotion behind that scene. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like that was the moment when Arthur realized he was going to die, so he may as well let John get to safety

    • Lucraceous
      Lucraceous 5 months ago +22

      I cried… Aussies and the Kiwis did so much for the war, alot of people don’t know that… we were the runs that stormed those beaches and never gave up even tho we lost 39,000 Aussies died on D-Day (Normandy).
      Also a friend of decided to play battlefield 1 and battlefield V and I told him you are going to cry… it is so sad, every story in the game is horrific and sad…
      Just like infinite warfare I full on cried at the end two people (one robot) commit suicide to save their friends and hearing the stories (messages for family and friends) by the people who dies during the campaign… it broke me, same with RDR2 and The Walking Dead season 1 (game)

    • Caleb Allen

      how they literally showed it in the trailer...

    • PITviper217
      PITviper217 Month ago +4

      Just because they showed it in the trailer doesn’t mean anything. The build up of Last Call mission was enough to lead you into a false sense of security. The beginning was actually fun… being able to run around with Cayde and fight alongside him because we’d never been able to do that before. You’d almost forgotten about the trailer entirely until the Riffleman’s shot rips you from your precious dream world and slams you so hard back into reality your soul is a crushed, mangled mess. Least that’s what it did to me.

  • Person Here
    Person Here 7 months ago +671

    Cayde's "Tell them that the vanguard that it was the best bet I ever lost" gets me every time, Hunter lore talks about how they usually ALL hate the position of vangaurd because it limits freedom, something all hunters intensely desire, but Cayde loved them, he loved his fire team, his friends, his family, he didn't care what he lost, he gained so much more. Hes the only hunter Vanguard I can think of to love the position.

I've had so much family think that I was just lazy and sucked up by video games, I've even been punched in the mouth over it. Video games are an astonishingly effective means of telling stories. Maybe one day tell her these stories over a cup of coffee, maybe she'll really appreciate the stories. She doesn't have to be a great gamer, but just have an ear for good writing. Hope you do well man.

      @OrangeAnchovieunfortunately Titanfall 3 won’t come to fruition. The devs dropped the idea due to how well Apex was doing and decided to continue monetizing it. They said in an article that TF3 was to similar to the last entry so they decided to stop development. Total BS if you ask me…

    Ive never played any of these games (idk how) but i can feel the emotion coming from every clip. And even though i dknt know the scenes i cryed along with everyone who has played these games. Games are the truest form of story telling because people can make any story they want and can pour their emotion into their amazing creations. This is why i love the gaming comunity and why i want to become a major part of it during my life. The best part about life is the times we felt the strongest emotions wether they be good or bad, and games can do that perfectly. These are some of the reasons i love society and every creation that has broutht us to this point because we might not be here without them. And thank you for listening to me rambling on.❤

On top of that you said which games were which AND you seemed to mute the clips when they weren't talking so that the in game music didn't overpower the music you put over. Truly a masterpiece.

    I remember watching this video before I’d ever played Ghost of Tsushima. And I never knew what kind of impact it’d have on me (A lot) and I remember recognising him when I first played it, and waited the entirety of my time playing the game to hear Shimura say ‘You have no honour’. Play this game, y’all. You deserve it

    I sadly didn’t grow up playing some these games (I didn’t have a console till like 2015), one of my biggest regrets (I don’t even call myself a “gamer” because of it). But they still hit me in my feels, a testimony to the greatness of these games.

    Yes these are “just games”. That may be what they are to some people. But to us, they are stories. These are the lives of amazing characters who many of us can relate to. I feel like a lot of people think of video games as these violent fantasies, but there is so much more. There is real emotion and a real story in these games. These are characters we learn to connect with and love just like those of our favorite movies. It’s not about how a video game looks or how well its mechanics work, etc. It’s about how these “games” make us feel. If a game reaches out to you and truly makes you feel emotion than it is more than “just a game”.

      What you just said, is a masterpiece. A perfect description. Anyone who plays games for the stories and the life of the characters we play as, can connect and relate to everything you said. "It's just a game"... Maybe it is... For them. But not for us. For us, it's a story we can live another life through. It's a story that we can truly get involved with. And that is my reason for loving the games I do.

      Actually he wanted to buried facing the West "for all the times we've had" but instead he died facing the East and was buried by Charles facing the East. The theory is that it's like that because he redeemed himself and put his outlaw past behind him, he moved on to other things in the afterlife/was ready to move on to living a normal life like John and his family (at least that would be the case if not the tuberculosis)

    It's amazing how we have more and more video games with depth, a deep story and a lesson for each person. On the contrary, we also have more and more bad movies, trying to follow boring trends, movies that should be better, and now the studio wants to replace AI for actors, too bad. In stark contrast to the fact that actors are appearing in more and more games. The boundary between movies and games is closer than ever.

    • PITviper217
      PITviper217 Month ago +1

      The way he died was an injustice to his character. He died believing no one liked him which- is so far from the truth that’s what broke my heart more than actually loosing him which completely wrecked me in and of itself. It has never sat right with me. I have never believed his death to be final nor his story to be over. It’s part of Bungie’s ever evolving tale. I believe they’ve had his return planned since the beginning if you go back through all the interviews, certain lore… I’m sorry I just don’t understand when people say bringing him back is wrong. If he was never meant to stay dead in the first place…
