Cool That moment(s) in gaming that made you go wow!

Anyone have a particular moment(s) in their gaming lives where they were just amazed at what they were seeing/playing?

Mine would be going from the SNES to the Sega Saturn and playing Virtua Fighter 2 and SEGA Rally. 3D graphics, gameplay and OST for both was just amazing!

VF2 was a big change going from Street Fighter 2. Being able to side step and move around your opponent made for a challenging game. Also graphically it was really good at the time. It's also where I found my favourite fighter from any beatem' up, Shun Di - The Drunken Master. His stage as well was awesome especially the arcade version with the bridge which would cast a shadow on the fighters. Sadly it was missing from the Saturn version.

My Shun Di art.


Going from Mario Kart to SEGA Rally was a big jump even though they are two very different games. Like VF2 it was amazing in all areas even with the terrible pop up in the background and I spent ages trying to best my times on all the tracks.

The OST is awesome!

My SEGA Rally art.


After that I'd say FF7 was a jaw dropper in both gameplay/graphics and PGR3 seriously made me fall back into gaming again.

How about you guys? Any cool moments that left an impression on you?

That one moment when Raiden saved Snake in MGS4:



Underrated game as whole but a powerful cutscene nonetheless.

You really should have given a maximum amount or else posters could write a novel about it. I'll pick 3.

1) Zelda Ocarina of Time --> Walking out into Hyrule and seeing the huge land. That was unbelievable. I never imagined a game with that much content, graphics, interactions with characters, side quests, etc. I still feel that size was perfect.

2) Metal Gear Solid --> When Meryl gets sniped and you have to leave her behind.

3) Goldeneye (N64) - Fighting Odd Job

This would be my answer too. I remember playing it the first time and just being wowed by how vast the world looked.

Its funny because my initial impression of the game was disappointment as I found the Kokiri Forest and Deku Tree dungeon to be mundane and limiting. And then like stepping out of Plato's cave, I saw the huge and expanded world of Hyrule for the first time and I was like "Holy God!". I almost didn't know where to go from there. I kind of just wanted to walk around and explore everything.

Another one was a bit more obscure and a little sillier.

So I played The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse on SNES. It was a Capcom game and actually quite good if IIRC. My big wow moment came at the very end. So I knew Pete was the last boss in the game, and I got through everything without too much trouble. I was at the end and I was just ready to fight Pete and wrap the game up...

And I go into face Pete and he's a King Kong sized giant! I was like...oh shit. I was not ready for this!

Granted I was 8 and maybe a little cocky by that point, but I still remember how shocked I was as I did not expect to be fighting a giant sized Pete.

Another vote for Ocarina of Time. Spent way too much time with that game.

Also spent a lot of time playing Goldeneye and No Mercy on N64. Many late nights in middle / high school playing this with my friends.

Re: That moment(s) in gaming that made you go wow!

Seeing Mario 64 for the first time. Going from NES and SNES to fucking 3D Mario in an open world environment was incredible. These days we just get graphical upgrades and no real major innovations like that. Not even VR has impressed me. Motion controls with the Wii were a cool novelty when it was first released, but nothing like that jump from 2D to 3D.

When I left midgar in ff7. Had never played an rpg and I couldn't believe the scale of the game at that point. First time I was really blown away.

Desert strike was close just because it looked so Damn good for the time.

Yeah, me too. Generally, the leap from SNES to N64/PS1 game sizes was my first real wow moment in gaming.

Midgar felt like the longest game ever for a 10 year old. Then leaving. Later getting an airship.....

Changing discs, too. In both Metal Gear Solid 1 and FF7.

Re: That moment(s) in gaming that made you go wow!

For me, it was playing Twisted Metal the first time on the PS1. SNES to PS1 was such a huge jump. The FMV cut scenes in Warhawk were pretty sweet too. Also, I was a huge fan of the first Need for Speed. Finally a racing game that was actually like driving a car.
