Awesome / No One Lives Forever

In the first game

  • Jumping out of an exploding airplane and wasting mooks while plummeting without a parachute until you find one.
  • H.A.R.M.'s method of having their cake and eating it is rather elegant: by purposefully make several of their demands completely impractical they encourage the government to give them the only thing they really want - a massive cash ransom - while still being able to blow up several thousand innocent people without breaking faith.

In the second game

  • Fighting Isako one-on-one in a sword duel at an Ohio trailer park. Oh, did we mention that the double-wide you're fighting in has been sucked into a tornado?
