Elite, Ultima Underworld 2, Doom, Tie Fighter, Deus Ex, System Shock 2, STALKER, System Shock, Ico, SOTC, Silent Hill 2, Oblivion, Bioshock, Half Life Franchise, Portal, Uncharted 2...  Probably some more.  All, at the time, had moments that were pretty awesome.


More so than Silent Hill 1?

Yeah.  Silent Hill 1 was very good, but it had nothing like Pyramid Head, who I found to be awesome in his own terrifying way.  I decided to pick one out of the Silent Hill games although actually in truth all 4 (can't count Homecoming myself found it very disappointing) had some pretty awesome moments.  Climbing into the tunnel in number 4, the first monster encounter in number 3, etc. etc.

Yeah, he was pretty terrifying, I agree.

But personally, I'd rank SH1 above just for the freaky music coupled with the atmosphere. SH2 had plenty of freaky moments, but the music...they just nailed it in the first one.

huaxiong, have you played 4?

while I agree that 1 had an amazing soundtrack that can send chills through your spine, 4 took it to whole new level in terms of music.

example:





Around the Network

every one of the best games on the SNES and the N64 as well as mario galaxy and RE4 for wii



                                                                           

I'll only list This Gen since there are far too many from previous gens.

 

Metal Gear Solid 4

Uncharted 2

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

God of War III

Heavy Rain

Final Fantasy XIII

That song is one of the greatest additions to the franchise.

Now, do I see bashing of SILENT HILL 1? I'll cut you huaxiong!



                                                                                                             

God Of War 3-The beginning of the game being on top of Gaia and all the action was amazing.

Bioshock-When you see the water and theres a fish flopping around on the ground,I don't know why but my mouth dropped.



Around the Network

Metroid Prime(Best first person action game period)

Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time(And this is with first getting it for the gamecube. Got it for preordering wind waker and spent far more time playing it then wind waker)

halo 3(first console game I played online, and by far my favorite console online experience)

Warcraft III(DOTA)

Bioshock(Most immersive experience ever)

Phantasy Star Online Episode 1 and 2(One of the most addicting rpgs I've ever played. Didn't have online for the gamecube but splitscreen with friends was more then enough.)

Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion(For a good portion of my first playthrough I did not realize you could teleport using the map and I still loved every minute of it. The game is just ridiculously huge)



Going backwards. Gears of War, Shenmue and Donkey Kong Country.



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

Bioshock, Uncharted 2, Gears of War, Oblivion, Folklore, God of War 3, Bayonetta, Just Cause 2 (the environments are amazing), Fight Night Round 4, Killzone 2, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Earth Defence Force 2017, Flower, Ocarina of Time, Mario Sunshine, Luigis Mansion, Earthbound, Secret of Mana, Super Mario RPG, Paper Mario 64 and many more. I am easily awed when it comes to games. Books, music and movie's rarely awe me, it's weird.



Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.

Pokemon Blue, Shadow of colossus, Wii Sports, Okami.

 

That I recall, those were the games that I was truly mesmerized to be playing.



Half-Life 2: Somewhere a few hours in, right after I'd reached Ravenholm, I sat back from my keyboard and just said "wow." Actually, the entire Half-Life series is FULL of moments like that. 

Europa Universalis III: When I opened up the country selection menu for the first time, I was awestruck at the amount of nations you could play as.

ANY NINTENDO GAME!!!
