I haaaaaaaaaaaate Defend this moments or sections in games. Having yourself tied down in a particular spot, trying to defend a single point or character whilst enemies offscreen run around the back of you and destroy whatever you were supposed to be defending.
They are boring, repetitive and usually are just there for padding and lack of ideas. I did one such mission in Warframe recently. With 4 online gamers together we had to fight off waves of alien solidiers. They came in wave after wave and apart from being a bit more difficult near the end it was the same thing, wave after wave and boring AF.
It got me thinking about all the other defend this moments in gaming. I can only think of one good one, RE4 when you had to defend the cabin. So good was it that RE5 and even Revelations 2 tried to do something similar, but were utterly average in comparison.
So what are your best and worst? Anyone remember defending Natalya?
