Whether you like it or not, games are becoming increasingly cinematic. Of course, they were always going to. As technology advanced and graphics grew more lifelike, games could recreate film-quality experiences with scary accuracy. Some series show this better than others - take Call of Duty as an example. Running through a Call of Duty campaign is full of movie-like moments, be it buildings crumbling in the distance or dramatic explosions pushing your player character to the floor. Of course, set-pieces aren't just about action. They can also be calm, dramatic moments which reveal something to the player or give the plot a nice sharp twist. In fact, these moments can be even more exciting as they step away from the things that games are typically about (violence being a notable one). Whatever the reasoning behind their inclusion, set-pieces are a big part of story-driven games. Naturally, as with all things, some are better than others. Some games manage to blend set-pieces into the action beautifully or use them in a manner which befits the story perfectly; other games tend to shoehorn them in and make the whole thing a bit of a mess. So let's celebrate set-pieces done correctly; those awe-inspiring moments in games which set it apart from any other entertainment medium. The fifteen set-pieces on this list vary in genre and style but all of them are stand-out, memorable moments in games which left an impact on us. If you think that a great moment has been missed, please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
