Americans are in the midst of Fourth of July celebrations, but the evening sky is overrated. Don't look there for awesome fireworks; look at these clips of video gaming's best fireworks. We've got to start with Mario.
Fantavision, the PlayStation 2's fireworks-gaming classic.
Final Fantasy XIII: Fireworks Edition
Boom Boom Rocket (Like DDR but with fireworks).
Uh.. Disney Fireworks, anyone?
Big Bang Mini, an obscure one on the Nintendo DS.
Left 4 Dead? This seems wrong.
Assassin's Creed II. Just the last bit of this clip.
Gran Turismo 5. Go figure.
Colonization (I love the name of this video: "Colonization Gameplay (SPOILER) - Video 18: INDEPENDENCE (End sequence)" ... it's like, spoiler: The British Empire loses!
Minecraft, of course.
Batman: Arkham Asylum. I forgot this game had any. Thanks Giant Bomb for your awesome fireworks-in-games list. I had to peek to remember this one.
Mini Ninjas. Fireworks-as-weapon!
Peggle. Well, Peggle hacked.
This one isn't technically a video game, actually.
