Favorite memory? Well, perhaps the moment when I've spent 30 minutes trying to snatch ronin tornado with a friend, finally succeeded and then crashed the damn thing while landing on a helipad. The moment was just hilarious. "Yes, dude, yes, we got it!!! Ow................ Oh well, how about some Death Tag then?"

Well, this and I also love cat&mouse game in co-op.

My favourite memory would have to be from Saints Row 2. I loaded up an elderly woman with about a dozen satchel charges and she ran screaming onto the road, straight into the path of an incoming car. As she went rocketing into the air, I detonated, and blew both her and the car to smitherines. Then as she came to a crash-landing and I detonated again, and I managed to juggle her a good thirty feet before I ran out of satchels. I killed a few horrified bystanders, too.

That, my friends, is why Saints Row > Grand Theft Auto.

My favorite memory was in Saints Row 2 it was during the election and I created a Sarah Palin avatar for the game. I had so much fun breaking her out of Jail and running all over the place dressing her up in all kinds of wacky clothes.

 My favorite memory is doing the drug selling missions while listening to the As I Lay Dying song on the radio. Actually, it would be that or chucking pimps off of a bridge for fun.

Dang it's hard to pick one moment! Makes me want to go back and play through SR2 again.

It was definitely a happy realization when I did my first few activities -- Insurance fraud, crowd control, septic avenger -- and quickly realized I was not going to get tired of this game anytime soon.

Can't wait for SR3!!!

My favorite memory is by far the most amazing:

As i sat in front of the TV years ago playing SR1 satisfied that i was coming down to what i believed was the final mission. My mexican character (whom i personally named to myself Caesar lol ) was on the boat speaking to the (now former mayor of Stilwater). I listened to the intense dialogue (my favorite being when my character said "Can we speed this up i wanna go to Freckle *$%#*'s" And then the mayor gets his goons ready to finish me. as i grasped the controller awaiting for the cutscene to finish...the boat explodes....and my jaw falls into my lap.

Such an amazing cliffhanger. I prayed for a sequel afterwards that would follow up and wish was granted. Best memory ever!! Spike Video Game awards and Saint Row 3 here i come.

My favorite would have been a DLC pack to replay SR2 as a Zombie Boss. now that would be cool.  Other then that the 2 games are too awesome to just pick one great moment.

My favorite moment was when I was just messing around in co-op on Saints Row 2 with my friend over XBL. We had a wanted level of 5 and an attack helicopter was up and shooting rockets at my friend. I went and got a Destroyer and he was constantly asking me where I was because I left him all alone to deal with the swat. Then out of no where I come with my Destroyer and just scream, "Ram- mode engaged" and crash right into the helicopter sending both it and me crashing to the ground and blowing up on top of my friend. We probably laughed for about 5 minutes and found it hard to catch our breath.

I remember so many moments like this, and it is why 2 years after release I still play this game despite having done everything for a while now. It is just so much fun and I can always find a way to do something that'll make me laugh.

my favourite memory was...SPOILER warning (do we still need to do that?)

the first time I saw the cutscene where you kill sunshine. the whole thing was one big "What the #$?*" moment.

that was the moment I realised that, after having strong feelings about it for a while, I was truly in love with this game.

I wouldn't say favorite, but fondest, sure.

Back in the day when I first got Saints Row 2, I was pretty much addicted, and a cousin of mine (an extremely close cousin) was going through a really emotional time. We opened a couple of beers and spent 3 hours playing co-op.

The look on his face said it all, I'm just happy I managed to cheer him up.

Yeah, thats it.
