OK earlier today I was reading a nice article over at Bit-tech about Left 4 Dead.https://www.bit-tech.net/features/10-ye ... -4-dead/1/
And I saw this screen shot.
And it made the hairs on my neck stand up. Back then I was into 3dvision in a bad way. And when I say bad, I mean like 90% of the time it was bad. However, there were certain moments in that particular game that were literally the pinnacle of gloriousness.
First when you stood in a dusty/musty house you could see the dust particles floating around, which was amazing in 3d. I literally wanted to sneeze. Then the absolute best part? the pic above. Throw a pipe bomb, get as close as you dare (without blowing yourself up) and then watch the chunks fly. It was absolutely incredible. Really did feel like you were going to get peppered with arms and legs.
Which then led to me thinking even more, and thinking about gaming moments that literally took my breath away.
For example, seeing Mario in full 3D in Mario 64. Just sitting there with my jaw on the ground as he fidgeted before finally going to sleep (ah spaghetti, ah ravioooli, ah mama mia ! *snore*)
And then of course who can ever forget that moment when you first walk out of the vault in FO3 having never seen it or done so before. OMG that was a complete sensory overload for me !
Then we have moments such as the first character interaction in Half Life.
So, what were some of your best gaming moments where you got them feels?
