Using the "big Daddy" cheat in Age of Empires 1 when I was in elementary school...

I thought it was just completely amazing back then.

Dont just list games. This is TOP MOMENTS in gaming. Not top games.

My list is all from older games.

In the original Diablo the cutscene the first time you beat Diablo and ram his soul shard into your own forehead was a impressive moment. A big WTF moment.

The level `Foxtrot Uniform` from Half-Life:Opposing Force where things have gotten way way out of hand. Foxtrot Uniform is military alphabet for F U. The title is apt as things are really messed up.

And in No One Lives Forever 2 the fight in the mobile home during a tornado while the house is airborn and being spun around and tearing apart and you are fighting that crazy ninja bitch inside the whole time.

I was playing Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Rebel Strike for the GameCube on single player, and when you complete the level, it shows if you got the bronze, silver, or gold time. On the Sarlaac Pit level, I got the highest time, beating the special "Producer's Time" or something like that. I was so proud.

Most interesting moment to me was a typical game of TDM on mw2.

I randomly tried to jump over a fence and ended up floating into space. It happened slow enough to watch the map slowly go out of view and eventually ended up floating in a sea of moving white dots which looked exactly like stars. Not sure wtf sort of glitch it was, but it was fun.

I had something similar in Assassin's Creed 2 - Ezio climbed to the top of a building, and just kept on climbing, right up into a hazy space :lol:

One of my favourite moments was the first time I won the space race in Civ 2. On the most difficult setting, that was some challenge!

I also loved playing a PC game called Darklands, which was a never-ending game made in c.1992, which even after completing the main storyline allowed you to simply carry on. I decided to become an outlaw, and so a long campaign of robberies, murders and holdups took place that made me wanted in 3/4 of medieval Germany :)

Beating F-zero on the gamecube. Man that game was hard. At the end it was just relief that I didn't have to play the single player anymore.

The end of diablo 2. Didnt even think of Bhaal until he shows up then. Great ending.

I tried so hard to kill everyone surrounding me.

So many reloaded saves I refused to believe Marston could just die like that :'(


Ugh, I did the exact same thing.
My heart ached for weeks :sadno:

I remember playing GTA Vice City and I was being chased by the police. I was hijacking a car and the guy I pulled out of the car had his head blown off by the police.

Close one.

Another MGS moment.






This was the craziest boss fight I had ever been in. When he started moving the controller and reading my memory card I thought I was going insane.

That can't seriously be one of your top moments in ALL of gaming?

This is a difficult question actually. I've played so many damn games, I don't recall which moment is at the top for me.

The most recent would probably be the first time I booted up Oblivion. The graphics at the time were absolutely stunning.

I also remembering being in awe watching some of the cut scenes in Metal Gear Solid 4, and I was never a fan of the series before that.

But above anything else, it would be in a little known game that I'm sure little to none of you have ever heard of, let alone played. The game was "It Came From The Desert" for the Commodore 64. And every time you have to escape from the hospital because you were attacked by a giant ant or got in a car crash. The most fun in gaming I ever had.

I'm far more into single player gaming over multiplayer, but all my favourite moments come from times when I'm playing games with people that are in the same room as me. Goldeneye, Left 4 Dead 1, Age of Empires 2, Mortal Kombat, whatever really.
Mostly Left 4 Dead 1, because it's hilarious what happens when crap begins to break down, and you're immediately facing up to the same people you failed to help. lol. Gotta love local multiplayer.

With respect to single player experiences, I would previously have answered with moments from Mass Effect 1 and 2, but because of just how meaningless those are now, I'll list a few others instead

- Starfox 64, defeating Andross' true form after the first time I managed to take the successfully take the left hand route the whole way
- Fallout New Vegas, when I walked into Nipton, saw that the Legion had murdered everyone, and then directly challenged and defeated their small army with my low level character.
- Ocarina of Time, standing in the castle rubble with Zelda after defeating Ganon. It just felt epic.
- Dragon Age Origins, when finally killing Arl Howe (as I was a Cousland)

Ooh! Almost forgot.

Resident Evil 4. The ruins level fighting Jack Krauser.


Krauser's only got a knife and I was supposed to have bullets but the previous level really kicked my a*s so I had no ammo. I had to take that fool on 1 on 1 in a knife fight. Barely pulled it off. Pretty epic though.

I keep thinking of great moments. In NFS Most Wanted, I was side-to-side at like 300 km/h (I play with km/h) with a cop Corvette while driving my BMW (The one you get at the end). I then moved a bit to the side and nudged the cop into an oncoming semi. I just missed the truck, he wasn't as lucky.
