    I gotta' know, what was your favorite gaming moment, game to play, cut scene... Whatever.

    Honestly, I think my most memorable moment was in Resident Evil: Director's Cut when you run into the 1st Zombie.

    I think the whole game itself is probably my favorite. Granted I was like 8 at the time... but that thing kept me up late, playing with surround sound headphones so my parents wouldn't know I was still up playing.

    When I finally beat it, I didn't know what to do with myself. Never had quite
    as much fun with a game until the remake came out for the GameCube. :bowdown:

    This is a really tough question... having a hard time thinking of what the best ever was, and trying to think of what it was like first time around

    Resident Evil 2 (I played it before the first one)
    Final Fantasy 6
    Chrono Trigger
    Wild Arms
    Mass Effect
    Divinity II

    there were a few other games with mind-blowing epicness but I either can't remember or they're not quite up to snuff for a "best" thread.

    I think I had the most fun playing Ultima 7 part 2

    :rofl: I remember being at football practice and wanting it to be over so I could go home and play that fucking game

    I think that whatever games you like the most when you're 14-19 or so will top this list

    Although the most fun I had outside those years was the first few hours of Mass Effect 2 and the middle 40 hours or so of Dragon Age

    I liked Mass Effect a lot, I'm not a big sci-fi guy so that's quite an achievement to me. I like to think that the "reapers" are all like Lavos from CT. When they first showed they reminded me of that, and what the reapers are doing reminds me exactly of what lavos was doing :o

    Gonna start playing the second one pretty soon

    Terranigma was awesome for the SNES if puzzles don't distract you from the game.

    I was like 11-13 when RE2 came out I think, I remember sitting in front of the game w/ a friend and a strategy guide for hours, and getting the shit scared out of both of us on several occasions :o

    I do have fond memories of playing Castlevania II: Simon's Quest with my cousin

    We chugged Mt Dew and stayed up all night trying to figure out how to beat it

    Ahh, gaming before Google :o

    Pretty much every moment of Morrowind. If I had to pick one in particular, I'd say killing Vivec.

    Fucking :werd:. I remember jumping everywhere I went, trying to steal from shop keepers and then killing them when they caught me, making rings that made me permanently invisible, underwater breathing, super speed, flying, hopping rooftops and breaking into houses, poisoning this guy's food to kill him, etc. ad infinitum. So much awesome about that game.

    I don't think any sandbox game will ever be as much fun as Morrowind was to me

    Too many good ones... most recently, probably Uncharted 2, Mass Effect 1's ending sequence, most of Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit and BioShock 2's ending sequence.

    that game was great until the last third or so

    I also liked parts of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, although the game itself had some definite meh moments.

    Yeah the main characters falling in love like that is wayyy out-of-character/out-of-nowhere, was pretty lame. I hope there is nothing as equally lame in Heavy Rain :hs:

    probably when i played cal-i cs 1.5 and 1.6 and went to a shitload of florida lans, it was more than a pure gaming experience because there were alot of social elements involved in taking cs that "seriously"... when i look back on it it was mostly a time sink but i made some friends i still have today and it was an overall blast :cool:

    as far as intimate gaming moment theres just too many to list, playing RE2 late at night for the first time, playing half life 2 at 3am the night it was finally released, as combine just posted playing ocarina of time christmas morning after i opened it.

    tons of good memories :bowdown:
