Have you ever had a moment when you have suddenly thought to yourself "Cool...." because of a particular little touch? Ideally this will be military game cos, well, after all, what website is this???

To get things going then...
1/ Far Cry (PC). One of the opening levels, I opened up on some bad guys first with a grenade then some rifle fire. One bloke got blown off into the distance by the grenade but the others started shooting me so i backed up, expecting them to come charging after me as they normally do in such games. This time, i glimpsed one bad guy through the jungle running off to one flank so turned to blast him...in turn i got shot by the other one who had run off to the other flank and shot me in the back! The bar stewards had flanked me!!

2/ Hidden and Dangerous 2 (PC). A german soldier shot at me from the top floor of a building. 3 shots to his chest made him react to each hit as if punched in that spot. final shot to his stomach made him fold and fall forward, but his ankle caught on the ledge as he went down, leaving his body hanging there.

3/ Joint Operations. (PC) see the theme? Was playing this online game, and was attacking some enemy in the company of some other unknown gamers. Suddenly realised realised that we were doing proper pepper potting towards them without any discussion. Also had a mortar guy plinking away a few hundred metres away!!

Anyone else? Or am i just a gaming gimp as the mrs says?

Hitman2

First level, go through the villa and kill all the bad guys, don't kill the french maid. When finished either go to the kitchen and pick up a knife or the garage and get the axe and chase the maid around playing "Heres Jonny", she doesn't run very well in high heels.

Oh well it floats my boat :twisted:

I agree a great game, but IMHO ruined by the stupid mutant levels.

Black (PS2) - First level you hit an bad guy with an RPG in a clocktower and the whole tower collapses inside itself with explosions from the windows as it goes down. Also, If you throw a grenade in a room, the overpressure blows out the windows.

MOHAA (online) I was playing a rifles only team game English Vs French (yeah the old enemy) and after a couple of rounds players started signing off untill only myself and a french chap were facing each other one on one. Playing a couple of more rounds sniping at each other I was pulling ahead with the most kills. Frenchy starts chatting to me over the IM system asking for tips on not getting shot. So I fed him a few tips while tracking round him and sneaking up behind him. The IMs read along these lines.

Frenchy: So you seem to be winning
Me: yep (Lulling his guard)
Frenchy: so do you have any tips you will share.
Me: well you should always look into places where other snipers may be hiding. (spotting Frenchy standing in the middle of a street)
Frenchy: Really, that makes sense, any more.
Me: Don't walk right up to a window as your rifle will stick out and give you away. (moving around out of sight of Frenchy)
Frenchy: Ah I am always doing that.
Me: Yes I know.
Frenchy: Is there anything else I do wrong?
Me: Well I think I have given you enough hints. (now standing right behind him)
Frenchy: Oh please I would like to get better.
Me: Well you should never let your guard down. (rifle aimed at the back of Frenchys head)
Frenchy: what do you mean?
Me: This! (BANG)

I could not translate all of his next IM after he had re-spawned but there was something about being a shit whore.

It does appear we have turned into the lilt drinking, crisp guzzling, lock yourself in your room with your nintendo gang.

Computer games in the NAAFI???

Its like turning upto a beerfest with a sherry glass and expecting not to have a stein planted firmly in your kisser.

Playing Operation Flashpoint Multiplayer.

I Cant remember the Map, but fight through a Ranch house of some sort and have lots of dead lying around, re arm all the blokes with G36's instead of the Ak's they had been carrying. Head out across The open ground behind the buildings toward the forest. Scout spots a Russian patrol on the next rise over from us whilst we are still in the dead ground.

6 Men get on their belt buckles, 2 Head down the way with PKM's and establish a cut off on the high ground to our right overlooking the bottom end of the intervening dead ground.

6 guys with rifles are each designated a target in the enemy Section and told to Hold fire. I wander round to the head of the re-entrant and Fire off a flare (Purely to be warry) the Pkm's open up and all the Ruskies dive to the floor and call in their Armoured suport. Riflemen kill all the Ruskies in a 1er on the command to open fire. BMP turns up. heads down the valley to the Gunners. and gets an AT4 in his back doors for the trouble. It isnt big it isnt clever but I was pleased!

Thus concludes: How I took to wearing glasses and fearing daylight!

Not a cool moment, but certainly memorable.

My early days on MOHAA online. I found a server where the game was Objective. We, the Septics, had to infiltrate a V2 site and blow up either the rocket or the control room.

A round started and I spawned nearest to the door, so I ran in, up the corridor and at the end I took out a grenade and pulled the pin to lob it into the path of the Salmon Trouts advancing to contact from inside the site.

Then my cat, deciding it was time I fed him, decided to grab my attention by walking across the keyboard in front of me. He stopped and looked at me with his paw on the Turn Right key. My character turned to face my own troops, backing me up, and the fuze was ticking on the grenade. There was nothing I could do. Either I blew myself up or launched the grenade at my own troops, who were almost on top of me anyway.

BOOM!!!

By the time I had launched the cat out of the door and got back to the keyboard, I found myself booted from the server.

Maybe you had to be there.
