Weekend Discussion: Favourite special move


No matter what your game special moves can make you feel like a badass. With so many variations from giant flurries of kung fu chaos to power beams to good old fashioned explosions, the choices are endless. Lets recognise some of the best of the best!

How about I kick things off with a bang?

1) Omnislash (Final Fantasy)

Though not the most flashy super move, Cloud’s Onmislash blew me away the first time I saw it. Fourteen, count them, fourteen consecutive slices each doing massive damage followed by a deadly death-from-above finisher. Still freaking awesome.

You missed. Now it’s my turn!

2) OD AH VIING (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

Fighting is for chumps. Why not sit back and let a dragon do your work for you? Sound like a plan? This powerful shout from actually summoned a frikken dragon to fight by your side.

You raaannggg?

3) Freeze by Sub Zero (Mortal Kombat)

Sure it maybe a cliched choice but let’s be honest, nothing beats turning an opponent into a popsicle while you sit back and decide what kind of pain to inflict on them. So many choices…

Cool it hotshot!

So those are a few of my favourites, now it’s all on you.

What are some of your favourite special moves? Throw in a comment and let’s start a discussion!
