    Most fun top 5 ever.

    Talking of medkits and football injuries, I would love a quick fix on my broken tibia from playing football. Damn. Wheelchairs are not fun.

    Just when you think life is depressing, you wake up and... GO TO WORK IN YOUR FRICKIN' BOAT!
    Put some effort into your trolling, Oddworld X, surely your favorite game has at least one game play MECHANIC in it that would be remotely useful in the real world, that could fit on this list, you know, like checkpoints, or something. Pleasure speed boats are not remotely useful at all in the real world, at least the world most of us live in.
    Your financial solution

    Yeah but in Hydro Thunder Hurricane the boats can practically fly!

    Really like these threads and I agree for 100% on the savepoints and the dialoguetrees. As someone who talks before thinking, those would have helped me a lot irl laugh

    Suggestion for a next top five in the future: most easy bossfights ever (just completed Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning on hard and it was probably the most easy fight in the whole game).

    There's nothing, NOTHING (!!), that would top the ability of a real-life-rocket-jump!!!

    I think double jumps would be cool

    Fast travel, anyone?

    #2 is lame. I'm pretty sure I already have a couple medical kits kicking around the house in case of emergency. Just wrap up that nasty flesh wound and you're good to go again...
    Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.

    SilentlyForgot said:Fast travel, anyone?This should be #1 on the list, especially if it's a version of fast travel that doesn't require having previously visited the location.

    Top 2 I agree with, though the remaining places should have been made up with the honourable mentions! Good idea for a list though! :)

    EDIT: Yeah, fast travel would have to be in there too!
