Awesome: Red Faction

  • Literally every time a building collapses in Guerrilla and you get to see the awe inspiring destruction physics is pure bliss. There's nothing like frantically running through a building while tanks blast at you from all sides and the walls get blown out in random directions.
  • In a meta sense, Nordic Games "saving" the PC version of Guerrilla. When THQ went out of business in 2013, many worried the PC version of the game would suffer due to the original publisher going down, and the announcement that the Games for Windows LIVE servers the games multiplayer ran off of would be shut down in 2014. When the franchise rights were bought by Nordic, the company released a series of updates throughout 2014 to help PC players continue to enjoy the game. Updates included: removing the despised Games for Windows LIVE DRM and moving the game to Steamworks servers, replacing the infamously broken Direct X 10 API with a new Direct X 11 API that gives players the visual fidelity of Direct X 10 but without the worry of constant crashing, regular multiplayer updates to keep things balanced, new multiplayer maps released for free, and in a heartwarming sense they even kept the old THQ logo still present in the game's intro out of respect for the original publisher.
