4 Moments In Gaming That Absolutely Nobody Can Explain

Metal Gear Solid Red Dead Redemption Catherine Persona 3 Atlas PS3 Xbox 360

Video games are clearly magic. This is a fact. No matter how many hours you can play of a game without any interruptions, someone will just happen to walk in during that one moment where things are at their most awkward. And no matter how hard you might try to explain it, there's just no way you'll be able to get it across in words without looking extremely weird.

While there are plenty of instances that people are familiar with, the laughing scene from Final Fantasy X and the mission in Metal Gear Solid 2 where you play completely naked just to name a few, there are still plenty more we can talk about. Now for your reading entertainment, here are four more instances you need to worry about.

-----------------


Metal Gear Solid 3: Ocelot's Cries


When it comes to the Metal Gear Solid series, there are about a million awkward scenes for someone to walk in on at the wrong time. Certain ones can be explained, like just why Raiden is jumping around naked and why there's a woman in a skin tight body suit crawling around on the ground moaning.

Well, I can't take him seriously anymore


But then there's the scene in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater where Ocelot calls in his men to attack you. While that sounds like it should be straight forward enough, Kojima found a way to make it one of the most awkward scenes in the series. You see, the way he calls his men is by meowing... like an ocelot.

And it isn't like it is one quick meow. He does the movements and everything as the meow echos through your soul. It doesn't matter how great the game is, when someone walks into your game room and sees that, they're just going to give up on you as a person. What do you even say to explain that scene? "He was calling... in his friends... He's a cat guy."

Catherine Is Cool With Butt Chases, Are You?


Alright, with Catherine you should have really been ready for anything the game had to offer. I went in expecting sexual themes and all that jazz, but I didn't sign up for no butt monsters that wanted to eat me. No sir, I did not prepare for that. And honestly, how could anyone prepare for something so strange?

Deep down, everyone is afraid of being eaten by a butt


Now look at that image up there. Hidden behind all that white noise your brain is creating to protect you is one of the strangest monsters in the entire game. It is quite literally a butt with a face attached to it and a few arms thrown in. Did I mention the butt is trying to lick you up as it chases you? When it comes to the game's other bosses, you'll see that each one has a relation to the game's story outside of Vincent's dream world.

While I'm sure this one can be explained as Vincent's perversion or something along those lines, I say good luck to you when you try to tell that to the person who just happened to walk into the room as the butt pulled you into it's mouth with it's tongue while making weird smooching noises. Go ahead and try.

Taking A Trip To Mexico In Red Dead Redemption


Another totally awkward sexual moment to be added to the list. Up until this point in Red Dead Redemption, nothing had surprised me. There was the implied rape, the mass killings, and horrific kidnappings. That was expected when I started my journey as a cowboy in the old west.

Something is gonna rise up, if you catch my drift


What I wasn't ready for, along with the people watching me as I played, was the very sudden full frontal nudity during the Mexican revolution mission. Be honest, did anybody see that coming? Like, at all? Sure it was showing how much of a sexual deviant the character was, but couldn't there have been even a little bit of a warning?

This is one of those surprise moments. I had read spoilers before I played the game (not by choice obviously) but at no point did anybody let me know something like that was coming up. Sex is just sex, but surprise sex with a large Mexican woman in front of a few members of your family is a totally different matter.

-----------------


Persona 3 And The Evoker


If you haven't played any version of the Persona 3 game, then let me fill you in. In Persona 3, you summon monsters to fight for you with a tool called an Evoker. An Evoker is pretty much just a gun. The characters in the game use this "Evoker" by pointing it at their head and pulling the trigger.

"Did that girl just shoot herself in the head?" Great, now I have to explain two things.


There's a bang, and the person's head jerks to the side. And thus a persona is summoned! Now. Explain that same scenario to a six year old that just happened to walk by while you were in the middle of a fight. And don't even get me started when the main character yells "SATAN!" as he shoots himself in the head.

-----------------


There are plenty of other moments in gaming that are just as bad, if no worse. Why do people always seem to walk in at just these certain moments? Why is gaming trying to make everyone feel awkward?! Do you have any stories where something similar has happened? Why not post them in the comments below? As always, thanks for reading.

Haha, those are some great moments... I'm lucky enough to live with a bunch of gamers, so I never have to really explain myself (we usually get a good laugh from them).

But some more odd moments? They're kinda spoiler-y for the games, but here we go

Grandia's kind of notorious for its sub-par voice acting, and I decided to play it in the living room the time when
Spoiler
. Of course, the voice acting... well, let's say the moans don't sound good out of context, and it didn't help that the volume of the VA suddenly got louder, too.

Another one was when we were watching our roommate play Fragile Dreams...
Spoiler
It made a lot of sense in terms of story and atmosphere, but that still didn't make us burst out laughing.
For me the most awkward moments was playing God of War games. My wife would always happen to walk in during nude scenes.

This! Oh gosh, that was awful.

I luckily haven't had too many awkward scenes in games to deal with, but the one that I had someone walk in on was the first (or at least, I think there was multiple) nude scene in the first God of War game. Bad times...

Yeah it makes you feel like a weirdo. You should try playing Ar Tonelico 3 on PS3 with company over.
This is one from back in the day, but any dates (or most any other part, really) of the PS1 game Thousand Arms. I would only play it when my roommates weren't around because of how awkward it was. Good game, though.
710 degrees on N4G. Great job!
I was really ashamed of myself everytime my mom came in when I was playing Prey and had to explain it were not big anusses I was jumping into. The next thing I remember having to explain to my girl was the "do it yourself operation" on the worm in Gears 2 where you had to -up till your knees in blood- cut yourself a way through the beast and after that Carmine and -what's his name again?- stand vomiting for a few minutes. Nice...
Yeah try explaining what your doing with the two women in GOW to your seven year old. Talk about awkward.

This is brilliant writing (and so true!)
