    Total garbage. Super Metroid's baby saves the day is 136!!! That's WAY too low.

    Jumping the fence with Epona > riding Epona for me 😀

    What about this:

    I think that is a great video game moment.
    Also in OoT I think pulling the Master Sword out for the first time is the best feeling ever!

    I've only seen 29 of those. I didn't beat Mike Tyson, but I saw my cousin do it. I would have put more from Z:OoT on there. I would have put more from other Zelda games, too.The reveals of Tetra, Midna, and Sheik. Maybe those are too spoilerfied.

    How do you not list the first time link traveled through time in Oot? … pretty good list other than that.

    Ravenholme? That was the worst part of Half-Life 2. The best part is when the gravity gun becomes a super murder implement.

    Personally sinking the Master Sword into Demise's torso felt Pretty satisfying… Just me.

    My fav' moment in OoT was running out of the castle, seeing the ruins, then watching the beast come out of the rubble. It ain't over 'till it's over.

    Rinding Epona, seriously? How is that classed as OoT's best moment? There are plenty more better ones, like mentionned above.
