It's cheesy as hell. The combination of that handshake + hug makes it awful. If it was just either one of those it would be alright

edit, scratch that. It's the transition towards the hug that kills it. That just ruins the whole scene

I know it's supposed to be intentionally bad, but watching Dusty Cowpoke at Perestroika in GTA IV makes you feel sorry for the guy.

Oh god, this thread had me in a fit of giggles the entire time, and I can't even watch the videos right now. I'll have to save them for later.

I loved Bayonetta, it was filled with such awesome camp. Did anyone watch AGDQ this year? I got kinda sick of Flicky whining about the game, but when everyone did the dance at the end... so hilariously awkward.

Laughing scene in FFX.

Johnny/Meryl fight scene in MGS4.

98% of Bayonetta. (I will never play this game in front of anyone)

It being purposefully awkward doesn't make it any less awkward.

Rather, effort was put into maximizing the awkwardness since it was completely intentional.

The product being incredibly awkward.

The fact that it's in the thread means they succeeded, and did it in an incredibly memorable way or else we wouldn't still be mentioning it.

Excuse me? FFX is one of my top 5 games of all time. So is DMC1 for that matter.

Stupid is still stupid.

all the "witty" banter that games are now trying to do.. Uncharted 2, Portal 2 (almost got it right but still made me cringe at times), the newer Assassin's Creed games... just fucking ugh, so awful. if you can't write funny dialogue, please don't try so hard. it's embarrassing :/ Rockstar are pretty much the only ones who can do genuinely funny dialogue IMO. most others just come off as such try-hards.

well i guess it's a matter of taste. i played Portal 2 with the gf and we didn't laugh once during the game, just looked at each other like "was that supposed to be funny?" playing San Andreas, GTAIV or even RDR however made us chuckle on a constant basis. i dunno, i just feel like a lot developers are trying too hard, as if it's a thing to do, to check that "witty banter" box. while in Rockstar's games it feels more natural and effortless, less cynical.

I think the handshake just seems really silly and out of place tonally with the rest of the scene. It goes emotion > goofy handshake > emotion.

This thread has given me perspective. It's weirding me out to see the Gears 2 Maria scene is not as awkward or badly done as I remember it; it actually conveys the loss well enough.

I guess the discord between that scene and Marcus and Dom's wacky adventures is what triggered a hearty laugh from me and my buddy.

The only game that has made me cringe is Bayonetta, with its awkward, oversexualized and stupid cutscenes. The sex Aphrodite scene in God of War 3 comes closely too.

Meryl flirting with Snake when she was being controlled by Psycho Mantis. If it wasn't enough embarrassing I had to see it with my mother in the same room, I directly skipped this scene with Meryl's fake orgasms.

The disparity between the FMV's sequences and in game models has always been a problem in FF games, Rikku was the same way in FFX too.

Oh god, that was terrible. That whole game was cringeworthy, though. Fucking Emil. He spends the first hour of the game trying to work up the courage to thank someone for being nice to him. God.

And why is he wearing an evening gown?

I played it again recently (lost my save, wanted to get one back for some reason). Yeah the first ~10 hours are very bad, the later 15 were actually tolerable though (even if only because Emil and Marta begin to be diluted a little among the more reasonable symphonia characters).

Oh I liked the game. I liked the endgame events and the final boss' music.I just switched my brains off everytime pussy-Emil was speaking. I've never wanted to slap a video game character so bad in my life.

About the evening gown...uh...Ratatosk's sense of fashion ?

If this scene was not in the game, it would have been SO much better. The entire story and Samus's character turned to complete shit at this moment.

Exactly :(

I was so dumbstruck I tracked down Japanese playthrough footage to find the same stupid thing, except while for them it's a change in one vowel for actual English it is far more different and furthermore completely out of context.

I heard really good things about Nier but found myself embarrassed while playing it in front of my girlfriend. Something about the voice acting and the weird dynamic between father/daughter just threw me off.

Some of the cut scenes in MGS4 were seriously cringe worthy, too.

The worst though is games that make me feel like a perv while playing them. Bayonetta is a big one.
