Forums - Gaming Discussion - Amazing moments when a game blows wide open

Even though a cliché, I was the most awe struck when seeing the sun go down in Hyrule Field for the first time in Ocarina of Time.

Running around the garden of Peach's castle in Super Mario 64 is a close second, as is the a fore mentioned Unreal stepping outside Vortex Rikers.

The late 90's was an awesome time to be a gamer!

Xenoblade Chronicles X. After the initial sequence, when you climb a small hill and Elma show you the beautiful morning landscape of Mira...... it´s breathtaking.

Fully agreed with this. The musi cand presentation is divine!



The best example for me is in Final Fantasy VII when you leave Midgar and are introduced to the world map with the awesome theme playing as you realize this place you've spent hours in is just a dot on the map.



Signature goes here!

Pokémon black and white, the first time walking into castelia city was something else
Pokémon X and Y, that first route,the visuals blew me away
And that shambhala reveal in Uncharted 2 , unforgettable

The first route of x was a short cemented path with nothing on it........ so I'm guessing you mean the second route?



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
