Recommended Posts

What have been the Jaw dropping moments in your video gaming career

Mine are

1] Seeing Donkey Kong in the Arcades it looked lovely and defined

2] Mario 64, the pictures in magazines looked amazing, then you saw it move wee ha.

3] Knight Lore on the spectrum how the fcuk did they do that on a humble spectrum

4] Donkey Kong on the Snes those pre-rendered sprites.

5] The Binatone TV game, wow you can play games on your TV!

The intro to Ocarina of time, actually scrap that, as OoT was just one jaw dropping moment to another through out the game.

FFVII when you first come out of Midgar and realise that it was only a small section of the game world.

Resident Evil 2, playing through the 2 intertwining scenarios

Metal Gear Solid and its twisting storyline and revelations near the end

Resident Evil 4 when you are in the village and the shit hits the fan

Twilight Princess, going in the twilight realm for the first time and the final confrontation with Ganondorf

Halo for reasons already mentioned

Playing Rez for the first time

F-Zero X for being the fastest game I had played at that point

Everything about Metroid Prime

Goldeneye, playing as bond and recognizing moments from the film

There's a lot of moments I'd describe as hair-raising, spine-tingling or goosebump-inducing, but not as many genuine jaw-droppers. When I hear that phrase, the one moment that immediately springs to mind is Colossus 5.

"Okay, I've shot him with my arrow, now what?"

...

"Shit, he's flying straight at me. Shit, he's flying straight at me. Er, errr, ERRRshit, JUMP!"

...

"FUCKing HELL."

- Daytona 8 player arcade. I personally preferred Ridge, but Daytona was quite something else to simply look at.

- Resident Evil 4. 5 minutes into it, when I realised it was new, (I usually hate 'new' when 'old' was fine) and yet it was utterly brilliant.

- Shadow of the beast on A500. Just to look at obviously.

- Virtua Fighter arcade machine watching Akira. Teh Future.

- Galaxian 3. It was f**king enormous.

- Epic on the Amiga. Another wow! look at the attract mode but don't play the game, game.

Playing Ghouls 'n' Ghosts on the megadrive was great for me. Felt like a little arcade in my bedroom.

Seeing the power of the snes with mode 7, great sound and amazing colours was wow.

Remember being really stoned and went round to my mates house and he had a dreamcast with house of the dead 2 and it blew me away.

Golden eye , Mario 64 , Halo were great also.

Agreed, the dinosaur was quite a moment. I should also add seeing Ridge Racer on an import Playstaion, it was using scart, so it was in black and white, I had been playing NFS on the 3DO and Ridge just looked amazing.

Golden Eye, but only when you watched the guys through the telescopic sights for me. They would smoke or scratch themselves, and it was spooky when you shot them in the leg, how at the time, it looked so real.
