My favorite memory is from a while back now actually. I was playing co-op with my friend, flying my favorite shiny black and white Snipes 57 around. My friend taunted me, saying I could probably never land a plane on the airport tower. I called him over, and to his surprise, there was my snipes 57 parked perfectly on the tower. He had the best reaction, laughing excitedly and cheering. It's moments like that which make Saints Row 2 one of the most memorable games out there.

Favorite memory would be doing Insurance Fraud in SR1 downtown, at the intersection where the police station is in VK territory. Guy comes around the corner from the direction of the freeway overpass and takes a right at the police station--but he's going like 120mph since the cars are all sped up in SR1 Insurance Fraud.

He's in a grey delivery truck.

It goes around the corner so fast it goes up on its two left wheels.

Someone--him or someone else on the sidewalk, I'll never know--belts out the OH MY GAWWWWWWD voice clip at the exact same time.

Funniest damn thing I've ever seen in any video game anywhere, ever. I'm laughin about it now just thinking about it.

 My favorite moment is in SR2 when I was first able to jump out of an airplane and not die falling.  I would always grab a plane or copter and jump out like some kind of super hero whenever I went to a mission.

That's a hard one.

A few of my favorite memories in SR1 were just the first time playing, using the weapon wheel for the first time and realizing how great it works, and using free aim after years of lock-on aiming and realizing how liberating it was, exploring Stilwater, seeing the hotdog guy and softdrink guy for the first time, and finding and customizing my first Bootlegger.  And the opening cutscenes and prologue missions were so exciting.  I felt like this was the beginning of something great.  And all the hours I put into playing the missions and doing activities, finding the FBI truck for the downtown Chopshop activity and all the chaos that came with doing that.  The whole experience of my first playthrough was just magic.

With SR2, the upgraded customization was a revelation.  Playing some of the really epic missions for the first time, finding the sex cave in the cemetary, and finding all the other various hidden locations like the secret islands and sunken ruins and everything.

And the first time I really started to "get" Strongarm and actually decisively won a Strongarm match against decent players, showing myself that I'd improved a lot.

But my favorite memory would probably have to be this: The first time I played SR2 when it came out (I took a few days off of work just in anticipation of SR2 coming out) I played through two of the prologue missions, and in the mission Appointed Defender, Gat aludes to Troy and Dex and finding out about Julius, so naturally I took that as a cue that I was supposed to do that next.  So the Revenge on Julius mission was the next mission I played.  So that long, epic, challenging mission involving Ultor Masako, Ultor Tornado helicopters, Annihilator rocket launcher and other heavy weapons was only the third mission I ever played, and I was thinking "goddamn, this game is going to be this hard?  This is way harder than SR1!  Jeez!"  And I started right off the bat on Hardcore difficulty, so it was pretty crazy.  It didn't realize until later that I likely should have played it near the end.

My favorite moment was getting around 50 kiils in a BOR match in the Arena stage.


SR1 - Riding around at night in a Mag with 3 homies robbing stores with cops chasing.

SR2 - Hearing Pierce sing on the way to a mission.

Both SR1 and SR2 SP experiences were fun with alot of funny moments.

The best point in SR2 was the introduction of female character, a huge improvement

compared to SR1. It is difficult to determine exactly my favorite moments,

since I have created more than 30 female characters and played hundreds of hours.

Congratulations to Volition for 2 years anniversary in SR2 !

omg, A memory? I have so many, this game has been such a part of my life, I chose it over Fallout 3 at first (I got fallout 3 later though).

I'd have to say just the customizing characters, for awhile I was JD from scrubs, on christmas I was santa claus, I was dog the bounty hunter and T-Pain, I was Kim Possible and Princess Daisy. Customization like saints row 2 is the reason I play games like saints row 2, and saints row is the best of its kind for hilarious gameplay and great customization.

My favorite part of campaign is...actually I have a video of my favorite part of campaign!/video/video....

keep on rocking, I cant wait for Saints Row 3

While I have too many memories to count I remember being blown away at the character creation options. I mean who has 20 customizable walks? Then when I actually fired a gun I was impressed how it felt. Then I got in a car and it didn't feel like I was driving a tank. And then I thought: "sick customization with good gameplay, I like this game more than GTA4 already." Then I get to courtroom shootout mission and when I see the judge run up on us with a shotgun I knew SR2 was gonna be special.

Hella good game Volition. If y'all somehow top this I might totally lose what's left of my sanity.

Saints Row and Saints Row 2 have brought me so many wonderful memories! I co op experience is amazing. Saints Row 2 is one of my all time favorite games. One time I remember I got my character really drunk and the cops started chasing me. Then my character said to the cop, “I’ll tell you when I had enough.” It was so funny! I love all of the little funny things added in there. I also love anything that Johnny Gat does. He is so cool.

 My favourite memory is really simple, after I moved out I didn't really get to spend any time with my brother but being avid Saints Row fans, when the 2nd one came out we both bought it and literally played all the following weekend. From Friday night, to Sunday night. It's sentimental sure, but for me gaming has always been better with a friend.
