15 Best Video Game Moments Of 2017 (So Far)

15. Kazuya Finally Defeats Heihachi - Tekken 7

Tekken 7 Kazuya Vs Heihachi
Namco

Shown in every major trailer for the game, we knew going into Tekken 7 that only one of the fabled Mishima family was going to make it out alive.

Or rather, you always know a marketing push, but seeing it come true is something else entirely - especially after the likes of No Man's Sky and Metal Gear Solid V told some pretty big porky pies.

Back to Namco's latest, and coming after Kazuya has unleashed what feels like a Super Saiyan version of his standard devil form to combat Heihachi repeatedly getting back up after blows that would kill any other combatant, eventually Kaz delivers a fully-powered punch right to Heihachi's heart, sending him careening into the lava below.

And no matter how much spirit or Dragon Ball-channeling "I'm still alive after all!"-heart you can muster, there's no way the still-mortal, human Heihachi is surviving being dunked in molten hot ooze.
