It's been pointed out to me that the rules aren't 100% clear: there are 24 groups, pick your favourite death from each! Click the link if you're not sure how the death goes!

My votes:
1: QfG1 Antwerped. Cute character design, no?
2: KQ5 playing the organ.
3: SQ3 slit wrist because that LSL2 scene really annoyed me after a few times
4: SQ3 shredder. I hate the troll caves too much!
5: LB1 shower. Shower for the win!
6: Tough call, tough call... though the LSL1 one is great because of how well-hidden yet cleverly thought of it is, but KQ6 is so funny...
I think I'll take KQ6.
7: GK3 crossing the wrong bridge. Damn, that sucks!
8: LSL2! Only in Soviet Russia!
9: thought the QfG3 hookah was pretty impressive!
10: KQ3. Kitties!
11: KQ5 since the elephant was a filler after finding the waffle wasn't a death scene
12: I think SQ3... not sure if I found the one that was meant by Banking At Night...
13: GK1 has such epic animation at that point!
14: Tough call... I'll go with the bang of GK1
15: SQ6 monster is one of the best points in the game!
16: Two classics! Neither one should be kicked out at this early stage, should they? ... I'll take Torin. It's not often that a death is a reward.
17: It was a bit cruel but I'll go for the elevator.
18: KQ7 hasa fun timing!
19: GK1 for Grace's roundhouse alone!
20: While the bad tattoo had me LOL, I'll go with SQ2...
21: LSL1 suicide
22: SQ4: This is Roger on Ortega. Any questions?
23: Both are impressive displays of animation but I'll stick with KQ4's marriage.
24: Oh hey. I'll take LSL6. Although I hate the sound effects. :)

Group #6: kq6 dark room of catacombs w/o lantern (zounds!)
Group #7: gk3 crossing wrong bridge (ah, Mosely...)
Group #8: qfg5 levitate by windmill (first time seeing this and it's awesome.)

Group #15: sq6 release invisible monster (never saw it coming...)

Group #20: sq2 alien impregnates (the ticking time bomb...)
Group #21: Freddy horse farts (because horse farts?)
Group #22: sq4 exiting pod at sq3 (so stoked when I discovered this one)
Group #23: kq4 marriage (a happy bad ending!)
