Best Screen Captured Moments

So when I was thinking about what to make some sort of list about today. I had quite a few ideas all of which I will get to, but today what I came to decide on today was Screen Captured moments. You see there is many games good or bad which have those moments which happen and you are like wow I wish I could have that as a picture. Some of these moments are iconic, some of them are forgotten after years away from them. It remains to be said though that the shot itself will always be epic. SO here are my top 5 which I think you will all appreciate.

5. Sarah Kerrigan during the battle with Narud

There are countless screens which you could have taken from the fight itself but this is by far my favourite. It is iconic in the fact that her is the Queen of Blades focused on her goal doing what she has to no matter the cost. It gives me nerd chills just looking at it.

4. Leah turning into Diablo

Again right after the betrayal your first playthrough you are still in shock of what happened. Diablo is now the person who has been helping along the way. This is also right before the fight with Imperius so seeing this just reminds me of how epic that fight was and the transformation itself.

3. Illidan Stormrage "The Betrayer Speech"

This is the first time you see Illidan's full half demon half nightelf transformation. This is also the opening screen to Warcraft III Frozen Throne. Which I still feel has one of the greatest stories of any RTS and they aren't even supposed to have stories. Everytime I see this pic I say the words in my head again and again "Betrayer it was I who was betrayed" if that isn't reason enough to put this on the list I don't know what is.

2. Plane Crash Behind Drake

There truly is nothing to love about this. Ignore the fact you were on the plane. Ignore the fact that you are in the middle of the desert. Ignore all of that and the shot is still amazing. This screams "cool guys don't look at explosions" and I don't even know if this was done on purpose. There really is nothing to not love about Drake's character and this shot explains it all in a nutshell.

1. Sephiroth In The Flames

There is no moment in gaming which is analyzed more than this. There is no moment which shows off a greater villian. There is pain hatred and insanity all together. I  don't think there was any doubt of any of you when you were reading this list of what would be number 1 and that is why it is #1. The shot of shots one which all will be compared to till the end of time.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did writing it. If you ever have shots of anything you want to take a look at send them along I always love a good screen shot unless it is of a turtle of course.


  1. Even if you didn't use the original Spehiroth it is still just as awesome. I agree though don't think there is a more talked about, sketched, drawn or whatever else moment in gaming.

  2. Illidan is such a epic and sad character at the same time. He trys to do the right thing and always ends up doing it the wrong way. Reminds me so much of Jamie in Game of Thrones

  3. Sephiroth is Sephiroth pretty sure you could have posted 5 of him and everyone would have been fine with that
