So many games use this gimmick to create tension. Today's strip refers, of course, to Metal Gear Solid 2 and Half Life. It's always some scripted event that you have no control over, just to punk you and take away everything you have. After the "amnesia" plot device, "strip the main character" is the most hackneyed game mechanism ever.
Also, Bill Paxton rocks.
