So, what's the most memorable moment in your gaming life? I'd like to keep these posts to 1 story to avoid multiple moments, so PICK YOUR FAVORITE ONE.

My most significant/awesome moment in gaming had to be watching the end cut-scene for MGS3 (Metal Gear Solid 3), where Big Boss is given his title, and the entire back story to The Boss is given. Those that have beaten the game know what i talk about. You spend the game learning the entire back-story of the war, the personal experiences of Snake, Eva, The Boss, and The Sorrow, and all the experiences lead up to that moment. I actually shed a tear (i'm not afraid to admit it) from the narrator describing The Boss........ pure - gaming - bliss.

To add on to the Metal Gear Solid 3 thing, its a good experience not only with MGS3, but with all MGS games (exept the stupid Twin Snakes remake.. ugh I hate it). The music and acting are like watching a movie.

I don't think I have a single most memorable memory, but its usually beating good games with meaningful endings. (Beating a Metal Gear Solid game or a Final Fantasy game for instance).

But its also like getting 100+ kills in Counter-Strike and only having 30 or less deaths (I usually end up with a 4/1 ratio when I get 100 kills). A good battle is awsome too. In Medieval: Total War, I did a quick battle which pits you as a middle-eastern faction against the French in a dessert setting. You have all mounted units (some melee, archer, and camel). Your forces are tiny compared to the French who's line is huge (they have 1000+ soldiers). The only stragetic peice of land you have is a pond between you and the French. Let me tell you, it was amazing with those odds to win.

Wow, gaming memories. Where to start??

How about a game of Total Annihilation from long ago...

It was an island map...high rocky peaks with nothing but clouds between them...so there was nothing but air battles in between. Most everyone focused on plane construction and anti-air stuctures. I was able to sneak 9 Goliath heavy tanks via transport planes onto an unprotected corner of an enemy's island; all he had was air defense so I wiped him out in short order. Just before his last structures were destroyed, he typed, "Goliaths?!? That is just diabolical!"

:thumbsup: :flowers:

Let's see...other moments. Though I can't say I have ever been 4-1 in CS or CS:S, I do remember specific rounds from the action over the years; taking down a whole team yourself, killing awpers with the scout (a personal goal I have in every game), killing 2 guys with a single scout shot, multiple nade kills, ect ect.

I never tire of the strange and wacky antics provided by the physics engine of Source...

Good memories of Red Alert 2...always was fun when 3 or 4 players would be fully built up with all the resources used...waiting to see who would strike first, knowing that who ever did would probably be damaged too much to win the game.

Half-Life 1 DM...one word: crowbar!

UT, on low grav maps, such as Morpheus...nothing more fun than forcing other players to keep out of the open and hidden under the towers...

How about co-op mode in Serious Samůat a 25 person lan!

And of course, who could forget hours and hours spent flying a Tie Interceptor on Xwing vs Tie fighter?

I can remember when I was about 5 or 6 and watching in amazement, just simply stupified, as I watched my mother "flip" the score on Space Invaders, over and over again. No wonder I could never win a game when I played against her. She was a pro. Of course, now she gets motion sickness from watching the modern 3D games of today! LOL!!! :thumbsup:
