Fairly straightforward topic....Saints Row has a ton of great moments but what was the best that stood out to you

Besides the awesome musical moments i have two favorite missions

  • Matt Millers Loyalty Mission: Night Blayde fan fiction, loved it when Matt got all giddy when Night Blayde talks directly to him and right after you kill Night Blayde how Matt accepts Night Blayde's powers and responsibilities.
  • Breaking Asha out of the sim: A ton of good stealth gags in this mission...but ill just quote one "That Light wont hurt anyone ever again" -Female Voice 2-

The opening of the game... nuff said

Also the asha mission was pretty great

#3 Edited by Iodine (532 posts) -

The first version of the simulation

When you ask Kinzie to sing along and she goes lolno

#4 Posted by Zero_Tactility (59 posts) -

The overly sentimental self-sacrifice to stop the missile scene in the intro mission.

The jaunty stroll the boss does after waking up in the 50's simulation.

The Metal Gear sendup in Asha's recruitment mission.

The Mass Effect sendup aboard the ship with the "Romance _________" button prompts.

Final mission spoilers: The payoff to the robot/power armor debate in the final mission. The fact that 'The Touch' starts playing as you suit up immediately after that.

I can't understate how excited I was to see that They Live level complete with a Roddy Piper cameo. Absolutely the perfect payoff to having Keith David on your cast.

@zero_tactility: Asha's line during that self sacrifice is pretty great. Also, every moment mentioned so far has been great.

Singing with Pierce has a pretty great payoff. "He ruined Biz Markie"

Singing with Pierce, always singing with Pierce.

#9 Edited by DonChipotle (2655 posts) -

Picking the red door in Matt's rescue mission. I knew it was the wrong thing to do but god damn do I appreciate that they just went with it.

#10 Edited by rebgav (1429 posts) -

I really like all of the Shaundi & Fake Shaundi stuff. It's probably among the least showy content in the game but her story mission and "romance" conversation are great.

#11 Posted by UberExplodey (904 posts) -

I unironically enjoy parts like this.

#12 Edited by Clockwk (55 posts) -

Just off the top of my head, there's plenty more but the opening walk-and-talk scene is hilarious, Paul, the "romance" system, and the QTE pancakes.

#13 Posted by dOm_CaTz (193 posts) -

Ben King romance.

#14 Edited by JeanLuc (3518 posts) -

Just like Saints Row the Third there are simply too many moments to pick. I can say that I will now have Opposites Attract stuck in my head for the next week.

I was also dying of laughter when you find out after the credits that Jane Austin is the narrator.

#15 Edited by SgtSphynx (936 posts) -

Saints of Rage, Pierce's Loyalty mission, Roddy Piper and the They Live scene, also...

Best romance in the game.

I actually liked Gat's Loyalty mission, thought it was a good moment and enjoyed that stuff from SR3. However

This is absolutely the best. Took me a moment to realize what it was then I just couldn't stop laughing. Just incredible.

Also I believe it was in the quick look, but when you first get C.I.D. and have him begin decrypting and he just starts repeating "FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK" had me in stitches.

  • Singing with Pierce.
  • Shaundi's loyalty mission.
  • Waking up in the pod.
  • The whole intro was amazing.
  • Kinzie's loyalty mission.
  • Asha's loyalty mission.
  • Everything that happened in the 50's.
  • In the last mission, when all of the sudden the SR1 intro screen shows up.
  • In Asha's loyalty mission, when you are performing the stealth kills, one of the guards says "famous movie quote!". I almost died laughing. That whole mission was a blast.
  • Almost all the talks/ exchanges the MC has with Kinzie are hilarious.
  • The subtle Airplane! reference in the ship.
  • Kinzie's dance at the end.
#18 Posted by DonChipotle (2655 posts) -

I don't think anything in the game will top the Opposites Attract duet, but here's hoping. God that was great. Boss just wanted someone to sing the part of the cat, and then he did. Did he ever.

#19 Edited by MjHealy (1737 posts) -

WHY ARE THERE SO MANY MASS EFFECT REFERENCES IN THIS GAME!?

Keith David?

#20 Posted by Iodine (532 posts) -

Can we talk about the times the game just sends those fucked up character models/upside down or invisible cars are you in the virus modes?

God those are all so fucking good it hurts

#21 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

The entirety of the Metal Gear Solid mission.

Also I dunno if this is because I picked the British guy, but the voiceover also made it hilarious:

#22 Posted by Bane122 (763 posts) -

All of these have been great moments but, one that was very minor but got a huge laugh out of me was when Super President Keith David is giving his speech and you see someone holding a sign that reads I (heart) Goliath.

#23 Posted by MildMolasses (3194 posts) -

I semi-spoiled that for myself. I had already unlocked the outfit well before that mission, and I saw that his name was in the imdb credits, but when I walked into that alley, it was pure gold.

The gag at the end is great too. Keith David tells you that you don't call him, he just shows up when he's needed. Then they tell you that you can call him and to forget what Keith just said. So good.

  • 50's Pimp Walk
  • Opposites Attract
  • Saints Of Rage
  • What Is Love-sequence

So many wonderful moments throughout the game. I absolutely loved it.

#25 Posted by RetroVirus (1405 posts) -
  • Matt Miller's, Pierce's, and Asha's Loyalty missions (That lightbulb had a family...)
  • All of the Mass Effect references; I love how they're just straight up called "Loyalty Missions"
  • Zinyak reading "Pride and Prejudice"
  • Text adventures galore
  • Timing super jumps to The Touch
  • 50's walking animation
  • Dubstep Gun
  • The Professor Genki stuff was actually really funny this time around
  • Insurance frauding myself halfway across the city

Also, if you go under the customization menu for the dildo bat and pick the candy stripe, the flavor text just says "Our weapon designers need professional help."

I really don't know if I can really boil down my favorite things because there are SO MANY things.

I'll say this. I think this is easily my GOTY now. I played on PS3 and the biggest letdown is the constant freezes I've endured. Besides that I've literally enjoyed every single moment. Also consider I'm at like 90% with the entire game. I've got like 15 challenges or so left. Everything is so fun even the mundane collecting shit part is infinitely more fun when your listening to Riff Raff.

Singing with Pierce without a doubt.
And also anything involving Kinzie.

#29 Edited by Nictel (2312 posts) -

I think I laughed most at the Romance ___ option mainly because I did it first with Kinzie and the MC just goes "Wanna fuck?" and I was half expecting something serious.

But yeah so many great things in this game. It has me wanting to play SR1 just to get even more of the references. It's the only one I didn't play.

#30 Posted by Quarters (1547 posts) -

There were countless awesome moments, but I think my favorite might have to be Opposites Attract/Just a Friend. So freakin' hilarious, and a great payoff to all that. But yeah, so many of the great moments have already been referenced, but there are still a lot more. Such a fantastic game. Even better than SR3.

#31 Posted by bennym6 (403 posts) -

One of my favorite moments might be unique to myself. During the end when you get the mech suit I didn't get the mech suit and for the rest of the game my character was bald and naked. It was kind of a bummer but it was also pretty funny.

#32 Edited by EquitasInvictus (1868 posts) -

Coming fresh out of playing through the entirety of the game this weekend; I agree with everything mentioned in this entire thread. So basically my favorite part of Saints Row IV was all the main story and loyalty quests.

EDIT: Since it hasn't been mentioned yet I'd particularly like to highlight the whole Streets of Rage - inspired portion; that was basically the perfect inspiration to draw upon for that quest!

But damn that's definitely up there among best credits I've ever watched, too, preceding it with a dance scene (particularly Kinzie's and Zinyak's and then the actual credits including the medley of the VAs' singing parts and the artwork of the Saints' tampering with history.

Roddy Piper being in Keith Davids simulation. Then Keith saying "He comes when he's needed" or something like that.

Every goddamn part of it. Fully upgraded Industrial Dubstep Gun is best Dubstep gun.

But oh man, did I have the biggest smile at the end with the Power Armor ("What? Is it a robot?" "Nope. Power armor." "No. Way.") and "The Touch". I was slightly tearing up because I was so happy at flying through Zinyaks' ship while that fucking song played. A game hasn't made me this happy in quite a while.

And those dances. And pictures. Pure, unbridled happiness.

Michael Clarke Duncan singing Biz Markie in the credits :(

#37 Posted by Quarters (1547 posts) -

@hobozero: Man, I just found out about that last night after beating it(the credits glitched for me and my brother, so we didn't get credits music). That was surprisingly touching. Saints Row IV really DOES have it all.

Same thing happened to me. The credits played but there was no music at all.

Shaundi is the worst helicopter pilot ever!

Seriously this happened with no aliens around or any other interference. WORST PILOT EVER.

#40 Posted by Sammo21 (3021 posts) -

I have to say, the Roddy Piper appearance and the "Roddy goes where he's needed" comment had me laughing so freaking hard.

The exact same thing happened to me

#43 Edited by Winsord (1066 posts) -

@nictel: @gorillamopena: I had this happen to me twice, but in my case I realized it was probably my own fault after the second time. Pretty early on in the game I'd gotten the 'tornado' upgrade for super speed where "sprinting creates a tornado which knocks off the objects in your path". As such, I figure it was my fault both times the helicopter flew off into the water, since I was still running around when it happened so I wouldn't be surprised if it just got thrown away by tornado as a result. Could totally still be fault of the game though, having experienced a few other scripting issues over the course of the game, but at least in my case I wouldn't be surprised if it was my own fault.

#44 Posted by Nictel (2312 posts) -

@gorillamopena: @winsord: Oh no everything went fine and she was on slow descent and then suddenly she started doing barrel rolls and loops like she was in Airwolf. The second time she came in way too hot luckily she did land on land this time. It's not the game, it is her.

I have no idea why, but this is my favorite post in the entire thread

Still have some missions to go but Keith David's loyalty mission. KEITH DAVID'S LOYALTY MISSION.

I'm actually disappointed it didn't happen to me.

#48 Edited by Karkarov (2621 posts) -

The Asha mission was probably the top thing for me because I am a huge MGS fan, but really this game is the game I wished Saint's Row 3 was. Not that 3 was bad, not at all, but 3 was like it's own game. It barely even acknowledged that Saint's 1 and 2 happened. Saint's 4 was made for people who actually played the whole series and loved it the whole way. For example I laughed my ass off way back in the beginning of the game when your 50's "wife" talks about the people who stopped by and says... "Oh and a man named Dex stopped by and said he was your friend but I didn't recognize him so I didn't let him in." Thank god they brought in Saint's 2 Shaundi as well, I almost let her die at the end of 3 just cause she turned into the least interesting character in the cast.

So for me the biggest thing was all the throw backs, jokes about Keith David sounding like Julius, Benjamin King being in the game at all, blah blah. If only there had been some Rollers, god I love killing me some rollers.

I suspect they put Keith David into the game just so they could justify a Rowdy Roddy Piper cameo.

And agreed, fully-upgraded Industrial Dubstep is -the- best gun. It's like a rapid-fire rocket launcher of bass.

Also, I'm awfully tempted to play What is Love? every time I fly a spaceship now.

And yes, the constant callbacks to Saints Rows 1 & 2 were interesting. I came onboard during Saints Row 3, and it's a good way of introducing newcomers to the backstory and serving as a love letter to longtime fans.
