What Are The Best Video Game Levels Ever Made?

A recent topic at Quora was What are the best video game levels ever made? There's a wide variety of choices, including the final level in Braid, Ocarina of Time's Water Temple, and a level from Tie Fighter that immediately came to my mind.


You can watch the entire mission above—you start out flying an extremely fragile Tie Fighter on a seemingly straightforward mission, only to discover you're surrounded by traitors, and have to survive long enough to be rescued.

If you didn't play the game when it originally came out, it probably looks laughably dated. But I bet any of you who played the game knew which mission I meant before you clicked through.


You are now looking at Screenburn, a Kotaku blog dedicated to the best gaming images, videos and GIFs online.

just to nominate a few:

halo: reach — Exodus or lone wolf

Dragons dogma — the final battle

Fire emblem: awakening — Grima (and apotheosis for my inner sadist)

Mass effect — Virmire

those are some of my favourite missions, but while i was looking these up and writting them down i started thinking about which mission i think has the awesomest name of all: To Slay a God, from fire emblem awakening.
