*** Seconded ''so hard''. They do the same thing when covering the sports. It doesn't help that a lot of the commentators know next to nothing about the sport they're commentating, and they somehow think we won't notice. They also like to pretend that the Americans are always the favorites to win even when they aren't and treat every loss like an unforeseeable upset and complete outrage. (Not to mention in Rio they tried to get the Portuguese "Estados Unidos" changed into the English "United States" in the parade of nations so "viewers wouldn't get confused." ~ @/{{Cailleach}}

** An odd choice perhaps, but [[VideoGame/{{Warframe}} The Second Dream]]. Theimplications of the WhamShot ''blew my mind'' and by the end of the quest I just couldn't ''believe'' what I'd just played through. ~ @/ArcaneAzmadi

** As mentioned above in WhamEpisode, the part in [[VideoGame/{{Warframe}} The Second Dream]] where [[spoiler:the cryopod opens, a humanoid figure limply slips out, your Warframe collapses like a puppet with its strings cut (which is actually ''exactly what it is'') and the realisation slowly dawns that the unknown figure is [[TomatoInTheMirror YOU!]]]] Or if that wasn't enough for you, [[spoiler:[[MissionControl the Lotus]] arriving ''in person'' to save you at the end of the quest]]! @/ArcaneAzmadi
