A recent one that comes to mind is beating my friend at black ops and fifa 11. I dont own these games and had never played them before and i beat him 18-16 on black ops and 2/3 games on fifa. He was so angry and the rage made him play worse so he just got progressively more angry.
Anything in Zelda: Ocarina of time. Never been into a game so much before that game. When will a game like this be out again?!?!?!
Game winning kill in COD4 to beat 4 professional gamers. All they do is play COD all day every day, get paid, go to tournaments and get free stuff. I ate my wheaties before that game.
Nba2k... 6 or 7ish. Whenever it started going online. Was playing this guy who was killing me all game and talking trash non stop. I came back from a 20 point deficet int he fourth and hit the game winning shot at the buzzer.
NBA2k9 or 10ish. Was playing a person online and he came down, did a cross over on my guy and my guy fell over. He paused the game and went back to reply and replayed him breaking my guys ankles over and over. Very next play I get the ball, cross his guy over and break his ankles. He falls over and I dunk it on one of his centers. I PAUSE THE GAME and go to replay and for the next 5 minutes slowly replay the cross over and dunk over and over and oooovvver.
Does everyone agree Super Mario 64 was the best Mario game ever? Man, losing myself in that world was amazing! I tried to get into the new ones on the Wii, I just don't like the whole outer space thing.
My most memorable moment was getting my hands on a Shareware version of WOLFENSTEIN 3D on floppy disc (yeah, the actual five inch floppy ones). After taking what seemed like ages to install it onto my PC I loaded it up and was hit by that eerie music.
I played that game for hours on end. I remember thinking it was absolutely epic and groundbreaking. And it was. That soundtrack, those sound effects, the guns, the hidden doors, those crazy Nazi dogs...
Pretty easy choice for me. When I solved MYST by myself. It only took 4 months! First game I was hooked on. Finally finished all of the MYST games. Took 14 years... Found SPORE and still play with it; haven't finished it yet. Then came Siberia I and Siberia II. Sometimes I poor a cold beer and load some of those games and just admire the creativity involved in the scenery and interactions. Not much interested in killing and racing, but WII Sports is good.
1. Playing the finale of Halo (original on the old xBox) with my newborn daughter asleep in my lap, trying hard to make it and not wake her up
2. Playing System Shock late at night, barely surviving a scary, long and horrible encounter with something, retreating into the elevator, and having a sudden peaceful moment with the elevator musak playing, and my heart pounding
3. Playing Scorched Earth for 12 hours straight, then going to a party and hooking up with the girl who is now my wife
4. The Omaha Beach section of the original Call of Duty- same with the russian fight for Stalingrad...
