Final Fantasy X
- The general Mystery Science Theater 3000 take on this game is fantastic and set the tone for all their RPG playthroughs. The vast galloping amounts of Narm, incomprehensible plot twists, and the then-state of the art, now-very strange looking animation give the T-4's a lot to go on.
- The legendary "Fuck Bandunk" incident: While the party is just about to beat Lady Yunalesca's third form in Final Fantasy X, after an hour of fighting, Bandunk suggests reviving the knocked-out Auron so he can get EXP from the battle. What happens next really must be seen to be believed: No-one in the party is left with the Zombie ailiment, and Yunalesca kills the entire party, moments away from victory, with Megadeath.
- Matched only by some of the fanart it spawned.
- Based soley on the explanation given; they would have lost with or without auron since nobody else had zombie either; and going back into the video; it was Benson and Ryan who are more at fault then bandunk.
- Speaking of, the fanart in general.
- After Bandunk tells Kuvo that Lulu is going to die because she got poisoned, Kuvos reaction is hilarious.
Bandunk: "She's dead anyways. She's gonna get poisoned"
Kuvo: "NO........ANTIDOTE CURES POISON."
- Anytime Bandunk tries to imitate Jecht.
- The "Pterodactyl call" Bandunk makes every time they summon Brrrrap/Valefor, which has become a thing he does whenever they see a Giant Flyer or bird in any game they play.
- Bandunk's prediction after killing Seymour for the second time that he would come back without explanation. Which he does.
- Anything involving the Shoopuff and the Hypellos, their Gungan-esque drivers.
- Anything involving Blitzball and specifically Rüsty's single-minded obsession with same.
- The whole Alternate Character Interpretation of Tidus/Rusty in general. When he isn't thinking of Blitzball, he is thinking of food and the acquisition of same ("I NEED FOOD!!!"). When he isn't thinking of either of those things, he's thinking of getting under Yuna's robes ("I NEED LOVE FOOD!!!").
- And after a certain very strange plot twist, "IMMA DREEM IMMA DREEM IMMA DREEM!?!"
- Laughing. Scene.
- FUCK YOU DAD!
- Everything involving Khimari and how utterly useless he is (at least for the gang's style of playing), the Rhonsos in general, and especially their extra-special version of "Hymn of the Fayth".
- And then, the discovery of Khimari being able to Lancet "Self Destruct"...
- Everything involving the Guado and how ridiculous they look in general. And Seymour's incredible hair in specific.
Bandunk-as-Seymour: (Before Seymour can say anything in-game) "Look at my fucking hair!"
Metal Gear Solid 4
- Raiden breakdancefighting Gekkos.
- Using the Otacon face cammo in an Otacon-heavy scene makes them very avant garde.
- Maybe he was cosplaying for the Otaconavention?
Tales of Symphonia
- Raine and Sheena's saucy exchange in Hima.
- Getting pinned to an invisible wall by a small child and the resulting panic.
- During Rodyle's first appearance, Topikal(?) immediately compares him to Dr. Loveless from the Wild Wild West movie. It just fits so well.
- The time some particularly malicious viewers chose "world" as the drinking word.
- Girls. All of it as the Forties are drunk out of their minds, but of special note is the interview with Genis and several attempts at singing "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" with game-appropriate lyrics.
- Bandunk completely stole the show in Altessa the Chiropractor.
- This Troper lost his shit when he heard his fanfic read, especially because the poor girl they got to read it mispronounced Otakon as "Octagon."
- Fuck Watermelon Hands, where, after over fifty videos of stubbornly refusing to use Presea, they're finally forced into a scripted fight with her in the party. Their reactions are predictably hilarious, and quite satisfying if you're a fan of the character.
- And devastating for fans that were sad to see the streak broken.
- On the fourth lost episode while everyone was failing at the Missile Silo mission, a very pumped Benson announced he would be victorious. When he drew a challenge from the hat he got the No Shooting challenge so he immediately crouched down and began slapping shins. There was much rejoicing.
- "Fish Squad here, reporting to the barrel."
- "Damned if you do, Damned if you Doak." and the other assorted Doak puns.
- In this episode, one of the drinking conditions is to not laugh. They fail spectacularly of course.
- The first batch of episodes already have gotten into a nice rhythm. Maybe it was because they've forgone drinking conditions, but a lot of the jokes have worked really well. It doesn't hurt that there's so much Narm to feed off of.
- HEY MISTER WANNA WRESTLE!?!?
- Ryo picks things up so robotically, you can hear his servos whirring!
- In episode 19, the team is so frustrated that they spend the entire episode complaining about how the game is forcing them to wait around all the time. At the very end of the episode, just as they're about to save, the Dreamcast takes its revenge on them as they find out that their save data is corrupted and they'll have to replay two thirds of the game to get back to where they were..
New Super Mario Bros Wii
- The whole thing is really something to see, but for specifics: Kuvo
plagiarizes"pays homage" to Maxwell Adams by trying to recreate a Funny Moment from the Freelance Astronauts' LP of the same game. (See about 19:53.)
- At around the same time in this video, they decide it would totally be a smart idea to use a Small Mushroom before the castle of World 7. It goes about as well as you'd expect as quickly as you'd expect.
- Bandunk starts the game excited, as he has 100%'d every other Mario platformer. Within the halfway point of the first episode he is completely crushed, developing a deep paranoia in later episodes anytime he is anywhere near either Alex or Ryan.
- Episode 15. All of it. Combine the final boss with all the forties being quite drunk, and full of rage that they can't finish the game already, and you have one insanely hilarious episode.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
- "Man I love kicking dogs in the face, it's like a Michael Vick simulator."
- Making Ryan take a drink everytime they revive someone because they couldn't play Castle Crashers turns into some very funny moments.
Fallout: New Vegas
- Raddunk demonstrates the versatility of the game's physics engine by making a dog do a backflip in slow-motion with a single headshot. Twice.
- You look like a fucking idiot (While wearing a space suit)
- Don't forget when he also becomes "Wolf On the Prawl!".
- So the Forties finally get to New Vegas and encounter Mr. House, and what is the first thing Raddunk does? Disconnect him from the mainframe and perform a victory "dance" in front of his useless atrophied body.
Little Big Planet 2
- The aptly named custom level Bandunk's lament, which also happens to be the first custom level the group attempts.
- The custom level made up of references to CMOFs of past Tipping Forties let's plays.
- In the last episode, the Forties are having trouble clearing a giant, spinning tunnel. Two of them finally manage to get past it... only to get instantly killed by a trap before they can activate the respawn point, so they have to try again.
- Eyeballbot. Try to look at that thing with a straight face.
- From one of the lost episodes:
Benson: Oh, last life? Alright, let's not die. *BOOM!!!*
- This game purposefully contains a vast and varied number of opportunities to be a total dick. You can probably guess how this Let's Play goes.
- Chicken kicking!
- Later outdone by the chicken-involving initiation into the Temple of Shadows.
- The moment where they discover the "Fart" expression. And every use of it thereafter.
- Culminating in it's use during "The Sculptor" Quest.
- Juiceman the Wonder Dog!
- And the fate of a townsperson who happened to kick Juiceman during a fight...
- Anything involving Bottom Bitch and her ultimate fate.
- Anything involving Sister Hannah.
- Upon realizing that 1,000 gold pieces has bought them nothing but another fetch quest from Jeeves, they take the appropriate course of action and stroll calmly out of the tavern. Without getting caught.
- Everything that happens in Bloodstone. Everything. All of it.
- Towards the end of the game, the gang is so fed up by being railroaded through the main plot by Theresa that they miss her warning that they're approaching the "no turning back" point. Whoops.
- And their subsequent reaction to the final battle.
Final Fantasy X-2
- The game is essentially the exact same thing as Final Fantasy X, minus everything that was enjoyable in Final Fantasy X. Given the absurdly lazy programming, bizarre blatant Fan Service, and the... plot..., the Forties have a lot to go on. All that and the fact that they really dislike the game itself. Overall, this Let's Play is like a real-life reenactment of this XKCD comic.
- Any time the Leblanc syndicate show up, the Forties refer to Logos as Ninja-scroll, and Ormi is often compared to Wario or Turtle.
- Everything involving Brother. He's a weird-ass character anyway, but the Forties' Alternate Character Interpretation of him is something else.
- The Faythe Scar cutscene, and their reaction to it.
- Which is very quickly subsequently topped by the... unusual encounter in Leblanc's room between Leblanc and a disguised Yuna. And their reaction to what Yuna is made to do afterwards...
- Anything involving the Hypellos and Tobli.
- "Pleeeesh! SHAVE meeee!!!"
- "We are shlaves."
- Their encounter with a bull-shark monster thing, which is exactly the same as it was in the first game -- except it's flying and found in Macalania Woods. Which means that the programmers still couldn't be arsed to create a swimming animation for Yuna!
- The hilariously frustrating Chocobo herding side-quest.
- There is a side-quest where an NPC wants you to clear an area of monsters. The Forties happily oblige. Then they learn that their old Play Station 2 crashes after a Game Over...
- "La la la la la la la la la!!!"
- And later, after the gang admits that "A Thousand Words" is pretty good...
Bandunk: "That song's not my favorite! Can you sing 'La la la la la la la la la!!!' again?"
- At certain points in the game, The LeBlanc Syndicate is able to waltz right into areas that the player characters had to battle or puzzle their way into in order to further the story along. When this happens, especially towards the end, Bandunk just can't deal.
- Yuna: "It sucks."
- So just how much deeper does their hatred for this game run than any other they've played? After they finished, they threw their copy of it off a cliff! With cheery Mexican salsa music playing.
- During the Mother's Day episode Benson was arranging a dish in Cooking Mama. After ignoring the seafood and spamming bell peppers, most of which appeared to be simply floating above the food, he was awarded gold for it. Better than Mama, indeed.
- During Mario Party 5, Kuvo Epic Fails a Donkey Kong minigame. (Skip to about 16:30.)
- We don't think anyone has ever got as much enjoyment from a shameless cash-grab game as the T-4's did with Twilight Scene It.
- Playing You Don't Know Jack, Benson screws himself (skip to about 23:30) just to see what happens, prompting an amusing What the Hell, Player? from the game.
Benson: I thought it would give me something!
