Mhm, mhm for this list will be looking at recurring moments and actions in video games that bring the most enjoyment to players. If there's a satisfying moment that your unsatisfied didn't make our list shared in the comments, Number 10. Clearing the screen Tetris franchise Tetris is one of the most widely played and copied puzzle games of all time. The goal of aligning blocks in a row to make them disappear is a simple one, but also an extremely satisfying one to see in action. However, along with the immensely catchy music, another thing that will get a player's heart rate up is seeing their screens filled with blocks and be unable to clear them away. So when you're starting to panic at the increasing number of blocks, nothing soothes your soul quite like finding that one block you need to wipe it all away and start fresh. Yeah, number nine BfG 9000 slashed Super Shotgun Doom franchise Waiting through the various devil spawn that have attacked Mars and its moons is no easy task for Doom guy or the players controlling him. So when Doom guy in the player get the chance to use a powerful gun to blow through the demons that once gave them so much trouble? Well, revenge is a dish best served at the end of a gun barrel. Yeah, weather players are using the Super Shotgun with its satisfying sounds and constant reloading or shooting green plasma that obliterates every foe in its path with the BfG 9000. These two guns are tons of fun. Yeah, mhm Number eight winning standoffs, Ghost of Tsushima. And it's the best combat in a lot of action. Games can start to feel Sammy, but Ghost of Tsushima manages to stand out through this awesome mechanic standoffs. Instead of running up in button mashing until your foe is dead, you can choose to do the honorable thing and challenge them to a duel. All right, then a cinematic standoff ensues like the conclusion of a samurai movie, and you must use precise timing to strike and kill your opponent. And while getting it wrong can be disappointing and frustrating when you get it right, the slow mo kill strike never fails to make you feel like a total badass. Cheers. Yeah. Number seven getting an s rank. Various. Yeah, yeah. Mhm, Mhm. Mhm. Everyone likes knowing they did well. And video games often give letter grades to indicate how successful the player was at a given task. However, those familiar with the American education system will probably be confused that a lot of the games, particularly from Japan, don't have the highest rank as a. Instead, it's an S. Yeah, to a title. To achieve an S rank in a game usually requires completing a level or a challenge with absolute perfection and often within a certain time limit to the S may as well stand for skill, because if you get it, you know you've got it. Get it. Number six. Beating Hades for the first time. Hades. Mhm. Okay, now we can hear you asking Beat the game, Hades or the boss of the same name. Yes, Hades is a hack and slash roguelike game, which, for all you newbies out there means that the action is fast and furious. And if you die, you basically reset, though with some added perks. This makes for punishing difficulty and numerous runs as you try to defeat the Greek god of the underworld to borrow from another Greek myth. Playing this game can make you feel like you're Sisyphus pushing a boulder up a hill for eternity. But unlike him, you can actually achieve victory. And when you do, it's like drinking ambrosia. Mhm, mhm. Reap what you sow. Number five. Defeating a Boss Souls Born franchise. Mhm, mhm from software has created some of the most popular action RPGs of the last decade. These include the Souls franchise, as well as games like Blood Borne and Seccuro. Shadows Die twice. They're all notoriously difficult to beat and will involve the player dying a lot. Yeah, okay. Progression in the games is usually built around defeating bosses. And although the regular enemies are often enough to make your life flash before your eyes multiple times, bosses are on another level entirely. Finding their patterns is a matter of trial and a whole lot of error. When you do finally overcome these frequently monstrous bosses, you'll be praising the sun and everything else. You managed to survive for once. What number four Finding diamonds. Minecraft Yeah, diamonds are a gamer's best friend when mining for materials in Minecraft, players find plenty of materials to craft new things with, However, the most useful material is easily diamond, given that it can be used to make some of the most important items. Yeah, mhm. Mhm, Yeah. These include the most durable armor and pick axes, which are useful against tough enemies. And in digging up hard materials like obsidian. It's also usually the most difficult to find, often spawning deep underground, necessitating prolonged mining sessions. Locating Diamond is well, like striking gold in the real world. Striking golden Minecraft is just not that big a deal. Number three spiking opponents Super Smash Brothers franchise. Yeah, hitting your opponents off the stage in a super Smash Brothers game is kind of the whole point. Sometimes they can recover, though by jumping or otherwise propelling themselves back on stage. You can interrupt this effort, however, and smash them downwards into the pit below by using a smash attack that hits downwards. This technique is usually called spiking or meteor smashing. Technically, only Malay has true spiking, but whatever you call it, the action is almost literally dunking on your opponent. Although most games allow the possibility to recover from these hits. The timing can be tricky. Regardless, there is a certain juvenile glee and watching your foes hopes get dashed. Mhm Number two. Catching a legendary Pokemon Pokemon franchise. The fish. While we consider discussing shiny Pokemon, not everyone's into collecting them, and every shining is a winner. Legendary Pokemon, meanwhile, are on every trainers must have list. Legendary Pokemon are usually on the box art and tend to be some of the most powerful and or plot important ones in the games. Okay, Mhm, Yeah, fighting. One can be challenging enough, but getting one inside a poke ball and making it join your team is just about the highest level of satisfaction one can achieve in the game. Even if you decide to forego the headache and just throw a master ball at it, Capturing an incredibly strong Pokemon still feels the very best. Well, almost. Yeah, yeah, mhm Push. Sure, mhm. Before we get to our topic, here are a few honorable mentions. Triple jump Super Mario 64. There's a rhythm to his progressively higher jumps that make us Wahoo every time, catching a contradiction ace attorney franchise watching the defendants or witnesses testimony unraveled is oh so satisfying protection.
