This one really stuck with me. I think the most powerful juxtaposition was the Age of Empires / Charge of the Light Brigade. I think the Age of Empires example was one of the best just because it is (arguably, depending on if the screenshot was made in a custom scenario or w/e) unscripted. The AoE screenshot is just a result of the AoE engine grinding on, in the brief moment when bodies are displayed before they dissolve into nothing. To me, that is the strongest invocation of trauma and turmoil.
