Highlight Reel is Kotaku's new feature that rounds up the best moments in gaming. Stunts, glitches, killsprees, speedruns — if it's something impressive that happened in a game, we want to show it off! Check out some of our episodes so far right here, and send in your own clips to firstname.lastname@example.org!
You can watch some of our videos below, or you can check out this YouTube playlist to see them all.
Highlight reel covers everything from funny glitches in new releases to little kids playing incredibly difficult games, to two-hour-long world record arcade runs.
There are also highlights from tournaments like League of Legends, where the Worlds tournament brought one of the most intense matches ever:
Some of our posts have helpful tips, like here where a reader explained how he uses Destiny's dancing feature to increase his field of view in Control. There's also an extremely long clip of someone falling down a hill in Just Cause 2.
Kotaku's Editor-in-Chief Stephen Totilo recommends you watch his favorite clip, where a group of GTA V players run around on a jet while it does rolls and flips. Also, one of those amazing moments that only happens in Battlefield, and the fastest Dark Souls 2 duel ever.
Is it sports you want? We'll give you sports, like this episode featuring an incredible interception for a last-minute win, and a really bizarre glitch from Sleeping Dogs.
We've got moments from games you may not have played, but can appreciate all the same. Like War Thunder, which is apparently just a game where people do crazy shit in fighter planes. Also, a hilarious glitch in The Last Of Us, and some impressive physics in Madden, and one player adds insult to injury by killing a player with a fake grenade in Counter-Strike: GO.
If you'd like to send us a clip, here's what you need to send:
- A link to YouTube or wherever you saw the video
- How you'd like to be credited - this can be your name or gamertag
- The name of the person in the video, if it isn't you
It doesn't have to be a big multiplayer game, or even a new game. As long as the play is good and it happened recently, we want to see it! We've featured incredible kills from Dishonored and Farcry, speedruns of decades-old games, bizarre glitches, all on top of the clutches and killing sprees you'd expect. If you think it's interesting, send it to email@example.com!
