I was playing ETW one time as the Dutch and started concentrating on taking India to help with my income (avoiding the Maratha Confederacy because pissing off Britain is a bad idea), it took me from around 1715 until 1720 I think until I had dominance. When I came back to concentrate on Europe, however, it turns out the Barbary States had invaded Britain, taken Bristol and the whole of Ireland. And to top it off a bunch of states in India had rebelled and completely destroyed my hold there.
Quite surprising. Guess that's what I get for trying to make the world Dutch.
When Validar was revealed as the avatar's father in Fire Emblem Awakening.
I had already known most of the twists beforehand, but that was kind of surprising to me. I didn't know EVERYTHING. Plus, that sort of gave me the realization that I had committed patricide early in the game. And that essentially...I'm a heroic version of Fire Emblem 4's Julius. :O
Playing Final Fantasy X. But my "HUH?" moment was more about my confusion why this game is so ridiculously overhyped >__>
The fact that this game was the only reason why I wanted to buy a PS2 when it first launched is still emberassing for me
