5. Samus Is A Girl - Metroid
Let's face it in this day in age this wouldn't be much of a shocker. Back then though when you were jumping around shooting random things in the epic side-scrolling game with horrible jumping mechanics which made you rage it was. I was always assumed and maybe wrongfully Samus was in fact a guy. It was to be expected of games of the day. So when the credits ended and the helmet was removed and you see her well it was quite the shock.
4. Ethan Mars Cuts off his Finger - Heavy Rain
Here you are desperately trying to find your son. To save your son from this crazy Origami killer. You have done countless things already which were to the point of insanity and you finally think you are getting somewhere when this happens. You are told you must cut off your finger. Sure it can happen in many different ways but in the end the finger is gone and you actually do it. The whole time I was thinking this wasn't actually going to happen. Something is going to stop this but he did it. He truly would do anything for his son.

Not only is this game on a whole new level of creepy and insane but there is this women who you see die over and over again and you are wondering what the hell is going on.

There is the moment when Batman is holding the antidote in his hand and he is thinking if he is going to give it to him. You know for story purposes that he has to think about it but in the end he is not going to kill him and is going to give it to him. Then of course the vial breaks and he no longer can give it to him The Joker dies... Then this seen where super hero is carrying the super villain out just on a whole new level. This actually happened you are watching it and yet you still cannot believe it.
1. Aerith Death - FFVII
There are moments in gaming you will never forget. Sure this is a moment in which has been talked about in gaming forever and probably will go on being talked about forever. This moment was iconic gamers and non gamers alike know of this moment that was the shock this caused. Sure I didn't like playing her as a character but when it happened you were still wowed how a main character could just be killed off not even half way into the game.
There you go my what the hell just happened moments. What did you think? Any you think should be on here?
