My most memorable moment was in '93 when I was playing the old Indianapolis 500 game (nice EGA graphics), qualifying first and holding position for 30 laps, and winning. I only ever managed it once.

The first time I stepped foot in UO, in Fall '97. Also when I beat Esuna with Camil to get the rune in 7th Saga....I was so high of a level at that stage of the game, that she was nearly impossible, pretty much every spell she cast was instant death. It took weeks of trying.

so many video game memories.

beating Dragon Warrior was a thrill.
very recently beating Max Payne was fucking awesome.
oh shit! beating, i believe, the third (maybe fourth) episode or Wolfenstein, where you kill Hitler.
beating Doom II
not being able to beat one of the episodes of Doom (to this day i still believe it is actually impossible and the people at id software are complete assholes

but i'd say the gaming experience I most remember took place at an arcade. I was tripping my fucking face off and after an unrealisically insane game of air hockey me and a friend of mine played marvel vs capcom 2 and I beat the shit out of him several times in a row.

probably when Thomas and I beat ff9. We had to meet my parents at noon at some restaurant, and we were both in pajamas, playing the game, and we beat the damn thing and it was 10 till and we were still watchign the ending (which was BEAUTIFUL..) so we were both in tears because it was such a sweet ending, racing to take showers during the credits and then ran back to watch it. we ended up bein like five minutes late, but what a great ending that game has..

<font color="aquamarine">Probably the greatest moment in game playing for me was when I was in the oilrig in Counter-Strike. I was a terrorist with Mr. Automat-Kalishnikov, rounded a corner, and bam! Five fucking counter-terrorists who had no clue I was there! I gave them the Bin Laden treatment, only to round the next corner and have a CT shoot me in the head while I was reloading my weapon.

I really like the end of the world in Final Fantasy VI and the whole friggin' Mana Palace/Pure Land/Mana Fortress part of Secret of Mana...tres exciting, no?

It's true, it's true.

Christmas '86 when I played Super Mario Bros. on my brand new NES is pretty memorable. Also, the first time I played A Link to the Past there was a fierce storm outside and as you'll recall, that game starts out with rain and thunder. I sort of became Link for a few hours that day.

most memorable, but not in a good way, a few years back i dedicated a summer to FF7...a whole summer...had everything, knights of the round, all the characters, duplicated materia all over the place, i was kicking ass, 90+ game hours. one late night, i finally arrived at the final dungeon, saved and headed off to bed. a day or two later i return to finish off the game...but find NO DATA on my memory card AT ALL. all gone. i think i had a stroke when i saw this. i haven't been able to play it since, its too painfull.
does anyone know why a memory card would just completely erase for no apparent reason?

Was it a Sony memory card or third party? Third party memory cards are notorious for mysteriously losing data.

I really liked ff9. I can't really remember FF6, cause that was years ago, but it was awesome... Chrono Trigger too... haw. beating sonic on master system and unlocking everything in super mario world was nice too. and Yoshi's Island...

i almost forgot... FINAL FANTASY TACTICS!!! the deep dungeon! the secret characters! the secret techniques! This has to be the game i spent the most time completing.

haw.

Actually, I don't know about that...I have a third party PS2 card and my friend has had a third party PSX card for two years, and they haven't glitched yet.

<font color="aquamarine">Original or 64? The 64's battle courses were so damned big you pretty much needed four players to have a good time, but the original's courses were fantastic. If I had any SNES controllers that worked, I'd still be playing that with my friends.

My most memorable gaming moment(s) would have to be when I first rented the original Grand Theft Auto. When I hopped into that blue car (the one that's parked next to you when you first start the game) and the soundtrack went "WOOOO!" and I realized you could just run people over and shoot them and blow shit up and not actually have to DO anything in the game if you didn't want to, I thought "Holy shit, this is the greatest game ever". Now, of course, I am addicted to GTA3.

Memorable in terms of nsotalgia would be playing Wing commander. The Quests also. Ultima 7. If i think about the summer i played U7 too much i start having teary eyes. Fo' real. Oh and wing commander Privateer. Rise of the dragon. man...god...such awesome memories.

I don't have as good memories of console games. But there's always the early nes days. From 87 to 90. Awesome memories of that period as far as games goes. Also the first time i played Snes.

As for most memorable achievement. Finishing the secret operations in Wing commander surely winz. It is incredibly hard. I still can't believe i did it. I had them for two years if not more alreayd when i did it. I deemed them ridiculous for being so goddam unbeatable. And someday i decided i'd do it. I'd take a whole year if i neede to but i'd do it. I did. It' sad barely anyone ever tried them and it hence makes my achievement not seem very important.

(this has been my favorite story about video games. I almost shat myself laughing when I read it)

"When the Super NES was new I was playing Secret of Mana. Then my cat
came into the room he went by the Nintendo and took a dump all over
it. Of course he had diarrhea and of course after you poop you have to
podie and so he ruined my Nintendo because the poop went through the
game slot and the podie made a stain the worst part was that I
was about to kill the Mana Beast."

*Thinking Resident Evil is a bit of a stupid dull game idea...until the dogs jump through the windows and suddenly Survival Horror was a serious issue and my undergarments were soiled.

*Beating the first enemy to death with the pipe in the Silent Hill demo.

*Playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on Christmas Day.

*Being amazed at the graphics and the "little film bits" (later we'd call these cut scenes http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/tongue.gif) between the stages of Another World and Flashback on the Sega MegaDrive (Genesis?).

When I discovered how to get the Nightmare Key in the second dungeon of "Link's Awakening". I had been stuck there for the longest time, for some reason I just couldn't figure out what to do there. After a while I just abandoned it completely. A year or so later, I saw a friend of mine play it on his Gameboy, and asked him where he was. He told me he was on the way to the third dungeon. I was stunned. After he told me I simply have to kill the enemies in that one room in a specific order, I went back, did it, and voila, the chest appeared and I got the Nightmare Key. It was so pathetically easy. But it opened up the entire game for me.

when i used to play Delta Force online. that game ruled. if you know anything about large scale multiplayer games like that, you know they can get laggy... so kills are hard to get sometime in that game. one nite i was in a deathmatch game and i was dropping mo-fos left and right. the lag was hardly there--a beautiful game.... so i'm running up this hill thing and in front of me 10 steps i see a sniper lying prone. i got my knife out and got him. i turned around and one poor soul was crawling over the hill opposite my direction. he got knifed as well. then another guy runs straight at me up the hill. fortunately, he had the .50 cal sniper rifle, so he couldn't shoot like an auto. i easily "dodged" his fire, and proceeded to knife him down too. my most memorable gaming moment consisted of getting 3 knife kills in under 30 seconds. the people in the game were like "holy shit!" i was on top of the world. and on top of the score board. ah, ...the gaming memories. but that was me back in the day when i played games. now i just play girls. i'm all growed up.


...that was kinda lame. i'm sorry if you read that.
