Your Favorite Moment?

In Space No One Can Hear You Clean, er, Scream. But if you post in this forum about Space Quest - someone's sure to hear you. I think. Try it, anyway!

Your Favorite Moment?

Post by Tawmis » Sun Oct 12, 2008 2:38 pm

Your Favorite Moment?

You can either do you favorite moment out of each game - or your favorite moment of the entire series. But let's hear them!

And note - it's favorite MOMENT - singular! So don't tell me about 10 different ones in a single game! I am looking for that single moment in the series or in each game that really made you say wow, laugh, or something!

Way too many. One favorite would have to be when Rog sees Beatrice in the beginning of SQ5.

My favorite moment has to be from SQIV where Roger runs into the Monocrome guys... best line in any game happens right there.

One? How the fyerk am I supposed to just pick one!?

Well, I guess arriving in Ulence Flats in SQ4 was a real hoot.

Oh...I just reread your first post and saw that we were allowed to post one moment from each game instead of the series as a whole. Oops.

I'd better start coming up some favorites from the other 5 games now (6 if the SQ1 remake counts as a seperate game)...

Okay, here's my list.

SQ1: The washing machine incident.
SQ1 VGA: Roger accidentally (and randomly) having the hovercraft in reverse when starting it up.
SQ2: Emerging from the subterranean river into the pool surrounded by the cool-looking ruins.
SQ3: The little meeting with Arnoid (mostly because of Roger going :o throughout the entire thing)
SQ4: I'm sticking with Ulence.
SQ5: Roger's grand entrance as the Eureka's new captain.
SQ6: Does the Ascend-O-Pad count as a moment? ("...And the Ascension-Descension Suspension Tension Extensions.")

These probably aren't my favourite moments so much as my favourite areas from each game. It's impossible to choose a favourite moment.

SQ1AGI: The beginning of the game. Wandering those blue halls is the single most nostalgic moment in that game for me. And thus it is my favourite.
SQ1VGA: The Skimmer sequence. I remember when I first played it I loved the music. That's my favourite moment. No matter how annoying it can be!
SQ2: The Labion jungle sections before you go down the chasm.
SQ3: Collecting the parts for the Alluminum Mallard in the garbage freighter is my favourite part.
SQ4: Being my favourite game in the series, I don't know if I can choose one. I guess in the introduction when Roger Jr. tells you to jump through the time rip. The music that plays is very memorable. The whole soundtrack is great, actually, but that was a great moment for me.
SQ5: Perhaps the part when WD-40 finds you and you beam down to the Kizurazgubi for her to kill you. The whole Star Trek TOS atmosphere is especially potent there. Reminiscent of that episode where Captain Kirk fights the Gorn. The music is also quite good there.
SQ6 Demo: Though short, I like the part when you go into the StarCon shuttle. Such a great little ship. And I love Roger's assurances to the player that there are indeed important things behind some of the compartments but due to the fact that you're only playing the demo you're not allowed to see them.
SQ6: Hmmm. Maybe when you at last steal the StarCon shuttle to go after Stellar. Running around in that cool little shuttle is fun. And Manuel's constant mentionings of complete and utter servitude to Roger in that monotone voice are quite funny: "Your whimper is my command, sir."

SQ1: Seeing all the robot references in Droids B Us.
SQ2: When you get too close to the cliff and one of Vohaul's goons come up and shoot you.
SQ3: That silly look on Fester's face when you put the orium on his counter.
SQ4: When you've been playing Ms. AstroChicken so long, the Sequel Police gather 'round to watch.
SQ5: Watching Rog spin around in his chair after accepting command of the Eureka.
SQ6: That little Monty Python reference on the bridge of the DeepShip.

SQ2: I don't know which cliff you mean?
SQ4: Are you serious? That sounds like a joke?

Ah! I remember that cliff then! :)

And you're right - they suddenly come up from below on that screen.
