Best gaming moments
What are your best gaming moments? The bits in a game (playable not cutscene) where you just think WOW!
For me, I think the first half life, on the tram journey into Black Mesa, watching all the things out the window. Especially on a Voodoo2 gfx card
Also the beach landing on Medal of Honor (the first one). Not fantastic graphically compared to war games now, but the intensity of the level really worked.

Anything and everything that ever happens in Fallout, and most of the stuff that has happened in all the COD series. Love them all.

First time in Assassin's Creed that I jumped off one of the towers.
Mirror's Edge - not a particular moment, just the whole game.

Have to agree with the beach landing moment. That was amazing...

Call of duty Modern Warfare - the bit on the helicopter
Star Wars Knights of the old republic - story was better than the first three movies

For me it's a few bosses from the Resident Evil series And I've recently just finished Fallout New Vegas, where the final fight on that was just brilliant!

For me it was Geoff Crammonds Grand Prix on Amiga, probably the first game I played properly, and the "realistic" graphics were jaw dropping!

When myself and another sorceress took on the Ancients on Diablo 2: LOD. We had a barbarian with us but they either died or disappeared. We both ran out of mana and mana potions and were running around until our mana had sufficiently recharged enough to cast the odd spell. Then we had to run some more. Was physically quite a challenge to stay away from the Ancients.
It sounds sad but anyone who has played D2:LOD will know what I mean.

- Rep Power
Unlocking my s-foils and setting shields to full front in X-Wing vs Tie Fighter or the first time I setup miniGL for Quake and playing it 3 times in a row. Aaaaah.
Haven't touched a software renderer since.

I remember playing Champ Man 2, it is so simple now I look back but getting Tottenham to win the league was the bestest thing ever, the flashing text as you scored... genius.

The Omaha beach landing from MoH was brilliant and quite moving in a way, I remember saying "f***ing hell!" several times just from the weight of fire spanging off metal and squadmates dropping around you!
Oblivion coming out of the sewers into the world for the first time, real wow moment.

I think that was the thing with the beach landing, you sit there thinking "this is stupid its impossible to do" then remember that it actually happened, and just how difficult that must have actually been.

Probably not the most original one this, but stepping out into Hyrule Field for the first time in Ocarina of Time. The N64 was my first console (I'd always had my Amiga till then) and I wasn't getting it till Xmas day, but I'd bought the game myself in anticipation. My friend, on the other hand, had an N64 but wasn't getting Zelda till Xmas day. Thus a plan formed, and we spent an afternoon getting through the Deku Tree, which took an unbelievable 4 hours for us to manage somehow, even with a guide. We stepped out into Hyrule Field just as time ran out and I got collected from his house to go home for dinner. Brilliant.
Also, the first time (and more or less any time after) I got into PvP in Eve and didn't die.
Oh god yes.

Seconded. I traded my Oblivion in for PS3 because I got bored with it. It was good but sometimes to do quests and find places you wanted to be could be a right PITA. One of my best Oblivion moments was killing the ogres that had taken over a house by sneakily using fireball spells where they could reach me and damaging their HP. Also geting the cutlass from one of the ships down by a dock and using that as my sole weapon was good.
