    Because even the shittest games can have moments of brilliance.

    My vote goes to Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYGkmgKxXz8

    What about you guys? Any moments of clarity amid storms of crapness?

    While not a complete turd, I would vote for the parts in the Ghostbusters game which remind you of the movies. Like the dialogue, Vigo being in the station house, stay puft etc. The game wasn't that great but they "captured the spirit" of the movies brilliantly. See what I did there?

    All I can think of right now is the body horror in Clive Barker's Jericho.

    The opening levels of Shadows of the Empire, seriously cool Snowspeeder action.

    The more impressively destructive of Alicia's powers in Bullet Witch were the only reason to play that turd. Well, those and the hypnotic swing of her hips as she walked...

    I never get far enough into shitey games to hit the good parts. They'd need to be right at the start.

    The game isn't totally awful, but the bits where you control the second character with the Bow (Kai?) in Heavenly Sword were so much better than the rest of the game. I was really hoping for a sequel based solely on her but no luck.

    The first couple of chapters of Alone in the Dark. Thought they were pretty awesome and couldn't understand why everyone had been hating on the game. Then I got to Central Park, and it became all so clear. Oh dears.

    Also the investigation/story stuff in Deadly Premonition could be both amusing and interesting at times. Shame the gameplay, especially the combat, is uttter arse and drops the game into 'pish' territory.

    Calling Barrett "Mr. T" in FFVII, cementing your own stereotype of the Japanese as horribly racist in the most unfair way possible.

    Stereotyping Squared?

    Playing with my brother on the Lord of the Rings games, both of us as hobbits using counter-attack against hordes of orcs and goblins. If only they kicked so much ass in the books and movies :)

    The first 2 minutes of having the jetpack in Minority Report.

    The first encounter with an agent on the plane in Enter the Matrix

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    The script in Brutal Legend.

    Main character trying to light a cigarette, the lighter won't fire, car crash. The car is in bits, character tries lighter again, ignites first time. Wry, slightly impressed smile. My coffee warned me about it.

    What? The ML has been improved a lot over the past few years.

    No it hasnt been improved, but it still is the good bit in an otherwise shite game, and a franchise that is slowly dying.

    Far Cry 2, some bits nearly got you hooked (a shame as i really wanted to like) but then you had the whole resporning AI we all know about...oh yes a little bug that would fuck your game right up. 30 odd hours lost Ubi.

    It was in a very bad way post-ps2, but last year's effort on PS3 was a successful rescusitation for many long-time fans. Not back to the heady heights it once was, but it certainly isn't dying.

    It did help that FIFA 11 was an own goal after the excellent World Cup entry.

    Kane & Lynch - The Bank Robbery. Actually felt like Heat for a bit.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    Yes, absolutely this. The rest of the game and the entirety of the sequel were both TERRIBLE.

    But that bank robbery, with Lynch going berserk was brilliant. Kane and Lynch didn't deserve a scene that good.

    Especially good in co-op, so I hear. The player as Lynch hallucinated.
