Great Moments In Gaming

I thought it would be cool to have a thread where we can talk about our memories of the greatest moments we've had in gaming, and we can just keep adding to it as we remember them, or they come along in the games we are playing now.

I'll start the ball rolling with a few.

Tomb Raider

The first time you hear the thump thump thump and the T-Rex appears. I just remember my heart racing so fast because it was totally unexpected. I managed to take him down first go, and damn did it feel good.



Half-Life

The blast pit tentacle monster. So much effort to take it down, and that knocking sound it made was the stuff of nightmares.



Knights of the Old Republic

Finding out you are Revan. One of the greatest video game twists in history.
(If I've just spoilt the game for you, too freaking bad, you should have played it by now)

Portal

The end fight with Glados was pure genius. It was hard to concentrate on the actual fight because of the humour of it all, with the constant criticism being thrown at you. Love it.



Assassin's Creed 2

The end has one of the biggest "What the F***?" moments in gaming.

World of Warcraft

Completing my Dragonstalker Armor set after God knows how many runs of Blackwing Lair. Anyone who has played WoW will appreciate the effort it took, and how good completing it felt. I completed many many sets of armor playing WoW, but that one felt the best. I just remember wanting it so bad because of how good it looked.

My Hunter Jenkha in full Dragonstalker


Jedi Outcast

I remember one night in Hermes Place (duel server) Matrix Dojo Map, I was on fire and won 15 fights in row. Winning 3 or 4 in a row was good at the time, because the standard of the people who frequented Hermes was very high, so dominating like that felt completely amazing. I'll never forget that night.

Fable 2

When a certain companion gets shot. The shock, the horror!!

No One Lives Forever 2

The scene when you are riding piggy back on a Scotsman riding a tricycle, chasing after a midget on a unicycle. Funniest moment in gaming EVER.

See these three classmates of mine finish Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original arcade, from 1989!) for the first time (I was all out of quarters). Man that game was awesome (still is).

Playing JK1 for the first time and totally getting creamed... then some time later (weeks? months?) beating my friend who introduced me to the game. Sadly I beat him so bad he now is afraid to play me in Jedi based games... (though he still beats me in other stuff since he's usually can afford the new systems/better hardware).

Siege in JA... too many times, too many awesome games. Just being on defense and dominating, not through cheap tactics alone (actual combat, not hitting the elevators over and over, that sort of thing), and pissing off the enemy team.

In any online game, probably getting one or two kills (finally) on the guy who is dominating everyone, just to see him pause for a second and acknowledge (even if he still easily beat everyone).

Hell yes.

Jurassic Park: Trespasser has several moments ingrained into my memory. A couple of them are listening to John Hammond recount the first time they released a velociraptor in the wild, and seeing the broken down building similar to the one in the movie along with the music. Still an amazing game no matter what the critics say.



Getting all 4 survivors on the helicopter with a full team the first time in No Mercy in Left 4 Dead was an amazing feeling. My heart was racing.



Sounds kinda lame but swinging on the swing in the beach level of Super Mario Sunshine was very relaxing and was almost like taking a mini-vacation.



The brief glimpse out the window of the Citadel at the end of Half-Life 2 was breathtaking at the time.


Lots of moments from Shadow of the Colossus, but the best ones were probably fighting the underwater one, the flying one, and this one:



Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2 are two of my favorite games, and the greatness is pretty much summed up by first two levels of DKC, where you leave DK's house, then it gets dark at the end of the first level, then in the second level it's raining and the sun comes up at the end. Also, Aquatic Ambience and Stickerbrush Symphony are both amazing in themselves.



In Super Metroid where you get to the part where everything's got the life sucked out of it by the giant metroid. For some reason that was just cool.

I've had so many crazy moments in Battlefield: Bad Company that I can't remember all of them anymore.

Situations where I've lasted for 5 or more minutes in all-out combat, making and assisting on dozens of kills. Times where I spend half a match sniping out of a window, killing dozens of guys... but one great moment I had the last time I was playing...

My team was getting our liquified asses handed to us through a straw on this one match where the bases rest on two sides of a river with a old bridge in the center. Well, the main point is that each team has a side, and we all fight over the bridge. Well, they held the bridge and we kept getting killed if we so much as poked our heads out to look. They had the entire place locked down; snipers, machine gunners, mortar strikes, grenades, everything.

So, after getting shot myself for the better part of 10 minutes, I decided to go to the edge and take the long swim across the river. Amazing, I don't get seen by the snipers who were just playing with us all this time. What I can basically describe is just seeing pretty much their entire team with their backs to me. So in about 40 seconds I stabbed and shot a better part of their entire camping team in just a final blaze of glory before the match ended. It was sweet revenge.

Oh, and in the old days during the Battlefield 2 demo, one image did stick in my mind: Jumping into a friendly jeep, escaping from an artillery strike and me, looking back, shooting at an attack helicopter bearing down on us. Was one hell of a moment.

OH! (x2) The one time where I made a last stand as a sniper and, with only my puny silenced pistol, killed 5 or 6 enemies as they tried to ambush my hiding spot. (Imagine the bar scene from Inglorious Basterds, yeah, it was that level of chaos... but I survived).

You just reminded me of one my all time favourite gaming moments in Metroid Zero Mission for the GBA - the end bit with Samus just in her Zero Suit trying to escape with only her pistol.

@ IG-64: Also the Metroid hatchling sacrificing itself for Samus and restoring her energy... epic.

@ leXX: My favourite moment out of Zero Mission was when Samus goes against the Chozo's test to earn her new Varia/Gravity suit. That's the moment she upgrades from her old training suit and takes on the full Chozo battle armour as a true Chozo warrior... and then the little etch in the very bottom left corner... so sweet.

Tron 2.0

Finding the Tron Legacy Code, mainly due to the fact that the entire story and build-up climaxed () at this point, and quite beautifully, might I add. The visual presentation and the music also enhanced it, especially since the entire level of navigating to the core was rather scarce of enemies, so it relied more on platforming and environment manipulation to reach the end, which I felt was more satisfying than pitting you against hordes of enemies.




The Legend of Zelda

I think this goes without saying, but the finding of the Master Sword is always emits a wondrous sensation, in every game, young and old.


Riven: The Sequel to Myst

Essentially, every cutscene Riven is fantastic, often due to the fact that it's one of the few games that has outstanding FMV acting, but also because of its taut skill in enveloping you into the game's world. Although it's one of the many "bad" endings in Riven, this one has most significance in creating a foreboding, exotic doom.

Again, more doom.

The good ending is also... good.

KotOR II

If you've played then you already know what I'm going to say. If you haven't (blasphemy), then it's quite prudent to understand that the entire game reached a brilliant apex here, at this point. 'Nuff said.

Unfortunately that's right before the game completely craps on itself because Lucasarts were such greedy pricks they forced Obsidian to release it for the holidays before it was done.

85-90% of that game was absolutely fantastic. However, the non-ending just pissed me off, and made me wish I had never played the game.

EDIT: As for my best moments in gaming...hmm...

In no particular order:

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
This really shouldn't need any explanation. I beat this game for the first time at age 10, and there was no other game that came close to the amazingness of it. Turning into adult link and going outside to the hyrule castle courtyard and finding the joyful area turned into a (for me at the time) extremely scary area filled with zombies, Fighting the mirror image of yourself in the water temple, getting the Bigoron Sword, the final fight with Ganon, everything was just so amazing. Ironically enough, my little brother decided he wanted to play it at age 8, and started a playthrough of it for himself. He made it all the way to Jabbu Jabbu's belly without my help before getting stuck. Ever since, I've been playing it with him when I get a chance, and we just beat the forest temple

Knights of the Old Republic
As leXX said above, finding out you were Revan in KotOR. I specifically remember playing through it for the first time, my family had gotten some Taco Bell for lunch, and I was eating while playing. When it got to that specific scene, when it said "You are Revan" I stopped mid chew jaw completely dropped for a good 10 seconds.

Mass Effect
By this point my standards were set high for Bioware games (KotOR and Jade Empire), and loved the various choices you made throughout each. However, nothing compares to the end of one of the last planets you go to...
spoiler:
When it makes you choose between saving Kaiden or saving Ash. Once again, my jaw dropped and stayed that way in sheer shock for a solid 30 seconds. I couldn't believe that they made you do that.


Guitar Hero/Rock Band
Beating any songs I thought I'd never beat. On the GH side of things, Through The Fire And Flames, Devil Went Down To Georgia, Satch Boogie, and Jordan, and on the RB drum side of things, The Perfect Drug, Blackened, and This Calling. The elation I felt after beating these songs after constantly failing them time and time again is fantastic.

Pokemon Blue
Way back when I was 10 year's old in 5th grade, shortly after obtaining a Mew at a Nintendo event held at a mall in town, managed to obtain all 151 pokemon on my Pokemon Blue cartridge. This was the proudest moment of my young life, and I was the envy of all my friends

That's all I can think of for now.

There was a truly great moment when I was finishing off all the riddles in Batman the other day. Towards the end when you are close to finding all of them, you hear The Riddler say "This can't be happening, you're using the Internet aren't you?", and of course I was, so it made me lol pretty hard.

Finding the Easter Egg in the Atari 2600 version of Adventure.

The part in Grim Fandango where Manny has to get up in the bar and recite his own beatnik poetry. It's so awkward and hilarious! And it really does nothing to actually forward the game, so you have to wonder why it's in there... but it adds atmosphere and color to the game, and it's one of those moments I always remember.

Playing the Light Cycle level for the first time in Tron 2.0. That was magic... and I had been waiting a lifetime to do that in a game that actually pays it justice.

Bringing down a SSD in any of the X-Wing games. Nearly impossible.

The ending of Freespace 2. I'm still waiting for 3.

Playing a perfectly executed game of Dragon's Lair on a single quarter.

Seriously, you did that? I could never finish it. I'd get near the end and get so damn nervous my hands would shake and I'd muck up. :/

Well... I broke down and got a strategy guide. (But the other patrons in the arcade didn't know that. )

I had gotten right up to the end on my own, however. (Probably feeding enough quarters into it to buy my own machine if I had wanted in the process, however! )

I have it on CD-ROM now. I've replayed it to the end again... but the thrill isn't exactly the same.

Yeah, I was thinking about buying the blu ray when it was announced, but it frustrated me so much when I was younger, I don't think I'll be puttin myself through that again lol.

30 seconds? It took me a good 10 minutes to make that decision the first time. I had to go for a fag and everything lol.

Other great moments in Mass Effect...

spoiler:
If you do the renegade path you can punch that annoying guy who rambles on near the beginning on Eden Prime. So satisfying.
Having to decide if you should commit genocide or not buy killing the bug queen.
The bit near the end when the whole story is explained to you, and you finally realise what is going on.
The whole bit down the side of the elevator was amazing.
The end when Shepard appears out of the rubble. I felt like jumping up and cheering, it was awesome.

You mean this?



Although I never played the Master System version. The first I bought was for the Mega Drive.

Oh that brings back memories, the master system was superior to the mega drive one despite only being 8 bit. I think they tried harder with the artwork because they had less to work with.

Wrong. The Mega Drive one was way superior. Not only visually.

Gotta love this:

Baldur's Gate I, acquiring Minsc and letting the hilarity ensue. Made even the most epic length game pass by far too quickly.

Baldur's gate II, after leaving BGI for BGII, I can't say how giddy school-girl excited I got when the first prisoner I released was none other than the hamster packing brute.

Show spoiler

KotOR I, and of course the KotOR Revan revelation. Knocked my socks off. Still haven't found them to this day

The first one ****ing grabbed me and started sucking my blood or something. I'm amazed I lived through it, I think my buddy got him off of me.

Also, though I could see the basement thing a mile away, it was still pretty messed up.

Damn you all, why'd the US have to be different and call it the Genesis.

Every time I hear Mega Drive I think "Wuh?" before remembering that that's what the entire rest of the world knows it as.

ME2 Insanity is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do in gaming. There are so many ways to die its ridiculous. The most annoying thing was someone with shields/armor rushing you and killing you after you've been slowly taking everyone out for 20 minutes. When it came to the final boss, I took Garrus and Legion with me, equipped with sniper rifles, and I managed to take it down first go. That goes down as one of the greatest moments ever for me.

I'm not worthy.

Yeah, I've just imported my ME1 Infiltrator to run it with someone who can't just sweep the room with an assault rifle to see how that goes. Once that's done.. I'm going to tackle Insanity difficulty. Methinks I might have to re-drag my Soldier out for that one though..hmmmm or my Vanguard. She's quite.... lethal...

I love Vanguards in ME2. I haven't tried Insanity yet, but I went though the entire final level on my Vanguard just using charge and the Krogan Shotgun and I barely ever even lost my shields. I didn't have to reload at all.
