Aye, having spent my time running around getting Rakghould Serum for the Dr, and running around doing other good works, it was somewhat shocking that it was all pointless. A great introduction to a brutal war.

Dantooine, having played TSL first, it was nice to see Jedi around the place

Aye both were brilliant, although the moment that sticks in my mind most was when Sion, arrived at Peragus in the Harbinger, I was thinking, I can't fight this guy now... I haven't even got a Lightsaber!

Championship Manager 4; Entire season unbeaten as Parma; won every competition I was in, and hammered, Real Madrid, Juventus and Man Utd all 4-0 at home; good times!

Oblivions countryside, very beautiful!

Tenchu Stealth Assassins, original, the first proper mission to kill the rich merchant.

Resident Evil; The Dogs! Good times, and Resident Evil 2; the underground facility near the end game, and finally 3 was best, but too short as you had run of the city.

Max Payne; the russian gangster who helps you out; practically a good guy, and the end of game, very matrix like at the top of that building.

(spoiler alert!)


Great thread!


For me:
-------

- X2: Die Bedrohung...when Trantor gets completely destroyed by the Khaak I vow to rebuild it with my own stations, factories and fleet...after months of playing I finally did that. Trantor went from being a barren, ruined and hostile system to the trade centre of old, except all the trade belonged to me. The beauty of this moment was that it had nothing to do with the game's plot (which I ignored) and all to do with the complete freedom you have to play the game however you want.


- Any number of Tomb Raider moments when you enter a HUGE multistorey chamber and wonder at the size, puzzles, jumps and possibilities of that which await you.


- Of course, when Aeris gets it. But equally I was taken by the scene later in the game when Cloud goes mad and he's wheeling back and forth in this wheelchair...dribbling incoherently. Then Bahamut attacks... - and another FFVII moment was when it finally said "insert disc 2" after what seemed like an entire lifetime of playing: I was like "crikey!".


- Kotor: not the big reveal, but two other scenes. One is the intoxicating discussion and Q&A with the Kashyyyk computer...with the realisation that only tactically-viable darkside responses will do. The other is when you first start talking with HK-47...and all you wanna do is talk with him until you've drained every last possible sentence out...such great dialogue.


- Rollcage, the Daytona track...any number of insane finishes to that race...if there is a word that combines epic and hectic then it describes these races perfectly.


- Any number of dramatic last-minute or beautiful goals scored during 10 years of playing Pro Evolution (formerly ISS) football.


- Turrican on the C64: it's 1990, I am a boy, with a new game, it's some sort of action platform shoot-em-up...I load it, it starts with instantly iconic title soundtrack...now it starts proper, I walk left-to-right...kill a few small underlings...then out-of-the-bloody-nowhere comes this HUGE flying fist and starts pounding me...whaaaaaaaaaaaat!? The game's only just started!


- Frontier Elite on the Amiga: I routinely take some wormhole, then somehow end up billions of light years away...with stupidly only one save point, which I somehow manage to activate in this strange unmapped system. Cue getting blown up by unknown alien ships and giving up on months worth of work as every time I reload I get blown up by unknown alien ships.


- Silent Hill: due to serious weapon shortage, I had no choice but to methodically batter my old friend, the policewoman who became demonic, with an iron bar...incessantly...until she bled so much and had so many broken bones that she could barely walk anymore. That was one of the darkest fights I've ever had the gruesome (dis)pleasure to partake in.


- Gotta love that very first Resident Evil scene with the flesheater.


- Metal Gear Solid on the Playstation: Psycho Mantis playing some crazy mind tricks on you. Not you, Solid Snake, but you, the real-life person sitting on the couch with a joypad. I believe it's called: breaking the fourth wall barrier.


- Conflict: Desert Storm...some crazy battle with a tank, all my team dead...my only hope is a mine I have left...boom! I just survive it but the tank does not. This was made more special in that it was a two-player team game and my mate could only look on in tense anticipation as I told him my plan. Funnily enough I had a very similar battle on Kotor with Sherruk and his gang (thanks for the name-correction, Ascendant_Justice).


Wow, I've written loads again.

KotOR - Revan Revelation. Wow. Luckily this game wasn't spoiled for me so it came as a splendid plot twist. Still brings a "Oh hell yeah!" to my face

The Legend of Zelda - Hidden entrances.
Back in the day when this game was ground breaking, no one had much of a clue what the game was about. So when I was running around aimlessly and a mis-timed bomb blew open a hidden entrance, I knew this game was different than anything I had played up to that moment. It was even more 'awesome' when I discovered burning bushes revealed entrances. (and let's not forget the whistle and moving rocks/tombstones). Still a favorite game of mine.

Oblivion - Giant Slaughterfish / Crab - whilst roaming the massive world, and having stumbled upon these 2 different 'large' varieties of creatures, it was definitely an "oh crap" moment. I discovered the crab while dungeon diving and my torch had just burned out before crossing the ravine. This game gets DARK with no light source (and no mods). I heard something scuffling just ahead so when I lit another torch, this HUGE crab was pretty much in my face. I literally jumped out of my seat. As for the slaughterfish, yeah, it was bad.. I pretty much swam right into it's mouth so-to-say. After swallowing my heart and reloading, I then had the pleasure to examine just what kicked my arse so handily (Oblivion has many other tid-bits as well.. good game for uncovering tiny little moments such as those).

Many more.. I just need to remember them..hehehe. I'll edit post as my memory comes back

FreeSpace: The Great War: First Sighting of the Shivans. The first time I played, when they attacked that Vasudan cruiser and wiped out it and it's entire fighter group in less than thirty seconds, I was getting spooked.

And then you have to try to delay them to let the Escape Pods reach the Jump Node, and they are nearly impossible to kill unless you were already prepared, so it turns into "Let's stay on his tail and keep him maneuvering, because these ML-16s are never going to do damage."

The first sighting of the Shivan Lucifer and realizing just what we were dealing with here.

The destruction of the GTD Galatea.

The final, desperate attack on the Lucifer at the Delta Serpentis Jump Node. Flying without shields for the first time in some thirty missions, and now just one wrong move can result in you getting shot down, and you have to disable all five reactors on the Lucifer within a steep time limit. If you fail, Earth is destroyed.

FreeSpace II:

First encounter with the Shivan Ravana Class as it wipes out the GTCv Lysander and Actium within a few minutes.

The first deployment of the GTVA Colossus against the NTF and watching as it quickly annihilates their entire fleet.

First engagement with the SJ Sathanas as it obliterates everything in it's way until the GTVA Colossus stops it.

The destruction of the GTVA Colossus.

Arcanum: Absolutely everything, but a few shining points.

The investigation of P. Schuyler and Sons. That place put chills up my spine.

The Isle of Despair. Botany Bay, only a thousand times worse.

The Void. *Shudders*

Let me see...

Morrowind (When you get Corprus disease. That whole dungeon was pretty freaky. Infact almost all of VVardenfell's dungeons were freaky)

Kotor (The huge revelation)

Deus Ex
spoiler:
Fiding out Paul is with the NSF, Area 51, the Helios Ending


Final Fantasy IX

spoiler:
Finding out that Zidane is a sort of angel of death and the ending


Half Life

Defeating the Nihilanth and having that major closing narration with Gman. Gman was the best character in Half Life. I actually threw lots of grenades into the Nihilanth's brain

I meant the battle itself. Not the overuse of bad cliched quotes that the game was full of
