Today's entry (number 40 already! One fifth the way there!) comes to us from Halo 3. Pretty sizable spoilers abound, so unless you're all into that sort of thing (or unless you're one of the 9 trillion people who have played Halo 3 to its completion), stay away..... stay far away.
Whereas I try to keep myself from delving too deeply into nostalgia on the other list, this list is packed with it. This one might be the prime example of that. The actual portion of the game is simply a redux of the first game's harrowing warthog ride finale. As usual, context is everything in these matters.
I beat Halo 3 for the first time at my friend Ben's house. We started playing around 4 in the afternoon, we started drinking gin shortly thereafter. As the sobriety and hand/eye coordination decreased, the hilarity increased an a striking inversely proportional way.

|Oops... shit... Fine. You can drive.|
