this needs a counter-thread: most embarrassing death in multiplayer!
L4D, Blood Harvest, the crescendo event where you move the train car to knock down the bridge. We spend ages getting set up in the building nearby, re-arming, healing up, scavenging for petrol cans and gas cylinders.
When everyone says they're ready, we trigger the horde.
I throw a molatov that hits the window frame and sets fire to the building. I can still hear their screams.
My best ever was on Counterstrike about 10 years ago, the first time I played it online having previously only played it over the office lan. Apparently, our office lan games were pretty hardcore, because the guys I was playing online were crap! Hiding in all the worst camping spots, and then accusing me of having wall hack because I knew they would be there. Seriously. Stop camping on the pipes outside the bomb room in de_prodigy. I instinctively round the corner with my gun pointing there.
Anyhoo, we were still on de_prodigy, and I was the last terrorist standing vs. 7 CTs. I kill 2 guys, find the bomb, kill another guy, plant the bomb, sweep back and forward to kill two more as the timer runs down. As the beeper gets manic, I leg it with the last two CTs in hot pursuit. BOOOOM! Round won! I rule!
And then came my best kill in multiplayer. I'm not done ruling.
In the 3 or so seconds you get between the bomb going off and the round actually ending, I duck back round the corner and kill the two guys chasing me.
I have never pwned (am I saying that right? 'pwned'?) a game in such a way since, and can't imagine I ever will again.
