I've just got back from the planes (translation: finished my first EE playthrough) and I want to know what everybody's favourite moments from the game are (and why.) Torment is filled with so many lovely little details that a thread like this will make people who've played the game smile, I think.
But if you haven't finished playing yet, I would turn back, as there will be many SPOILERS.
I will start with two of my favourite moments. The first:
Meeting the Paranoid Incarnation with the ability to speak Uyyo, a language which he is sure is only known by him...meaning you must be him. Being TNO has made this incarnation mad, unable to trust anyone and regarding all other incarnations as thieves. As he is at last confronted with a being he can trust (himself, or so he thinks) you can comfort him, sympathising with the events that led to his madness. Not only do I find this moving, it is a great reward for those players that took the trouble to solve the Dodecahedron subquest earlier in the game by learning Uyyo.
The second moment
concerns a painting you can find in the Clerk's Ward art gallery. It's called something like "Outland Shadows." When you ask Yvana about it she gives you some information, and the implication I got from this was that it was painted by a previous incarnation of the Nameless One, of the shadows that were coming to kill him somewhere in the Outlands. I liked this because it was only implied, so it makes the player imagine the world beyond was is known for sure in the game. I liked to imagine one previous incarnation responding to TNO's torment by painting his doom, and this artwork being his last testament.
