well.. I do like sub movies.

SH3 incorporates the best use of waiting, I think. Waiting for torpedoes to hit, waiting for a destroyer to pass, waiting to find a target. The waiting balances the action and gives it real tension.

And it's the stealth gameplay.. you feel overpowered as you strike from a good position, then feel immediately underpowered and fragile as destroyers surge overhead dropping depth charges while you risk crushing your hull by diving deeper.

The sound of the hull contracting. Loooove it.

I love the tension of it and I think SH3 was a real high point for the genre.
