I was awestruck by the beauty of UC2 and while I was playing Flower I started crying.



Around the Network

Pure emotion in games? These:

Half-Life 2 and Episodes 1 & 2: Very much all of Ep 2 was shocking and emotional, especially the end. But also simple moments in Half-Life 2 like seeing the distress of the people in City 17 and getting the crowbar for the first time.

MGS 3 & 4: The Metal Gear Solid games are full of emotional moments, but the ending to these two are particularly emotional. Seeing Snake in the state he's in after following his character over the course of games.

Shadow of the Colossus: Has to be played. It's difficult to convey in words alone.

Final Fantasy VII: Two moments: The point where Red XIII finds out the truth about his father and the "Aeris" scene.

Portal: Pure genius.

Deus Ex: The mood and atmosphere in this game is just fantastic.

Now, if we include anger then a lot of games would have to be included.



There's a lot of them, but in the current generation?

Let's see:

- Portal

- Valkyria Chronicles

- MGS4

- Fragile Dreams



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

Modern Warfare 2 when Ghost and Roach get shot by Shepherd. Ghost was really the only decent character in the game along with Soap, so I was sad when he died. And I had liked Shepherd before that :p



When I come back from the future and return to Hyrule castle as a kid. Link stands on the courtyard gazing at Zelda while she was spying through the windows. Then, she turned around and gazed at him too. The say nothing. 'Do they know each other now? Did everything happen as they expected? There is no dialogue. All the colours on the screen becomes grayscale and in the middle appear two words:

                                  GAME   OVER

Then the only answer you get is that probably you have just finished the best game ever created in the world and that you will remember it for years.

Yeah, I was right, it has been 12 years and still remember Ocarina of Time.

amen to that. OOT literally impacted my life, as cheezy/nerdy as that sounds. I can honestly say OOT Link was the first and really ONLY role model I ever had. Yeah I said it, a fictional videogame character was my role model =)

Happy moments:

Streets of Rage 2 (Sega Genesis): I remember getting this for Christmas and I was only a child but I still remember that day. I was totally blown away by the graphics, music and arcade-like gameplay. Just wow, I was trembling as I played!

Final Fantasy VII (Sony PlayStation): I was blown away when I first left Midgar and could walk around the map in that green grass, catch my first Chocobo and be so scared of the snake on the sand area... all listening to the awesome world map theme.

Street Fighter Alpha 2 (Sega Saturn): This game was so perfect in so many ways. The music on the Sega Saturn version was vastly superior to the PlayStation and Arcade versions.

Diablo 2 (PC): Fighting Diablo for the first time in Act 4 was really epic. The first game I actively played online, and it was a blast.

Sad moments:

Final Fantasy VII (Sony PlayStation): Aeris scene...

Phantasy Star IV (Sega Genesis): Alys scene.
