Best moment in a video game ever?

Recommended Posts

Do you have any all-time favorite moments in video games? I actually have to think about this one to come up with my own response. There are a lot of memorable moments in TLOU and Bioshock games, but I’m not sure which are the most standout ones to mention.

A couple generalized moments. Like beating a game for the first time that you've been struggling to beat for a long time. Also replaying a favorite game that you were sure you knew everything about, only to discover something that advances your character that you never knew about.

My favorite moments come from multiplayer games where some arrogant opponent declares that I've already lost the game for some reason or another, only for me to turn the game around and make them eat their words.

This has happened to me during StarCraft II once. I described it in another thread, but basically it was Protoss vs. Protoss, and I was a Silver League player defending against a Gold League player who was using some very nasty cheese tactics, trying to get an easy win. What he didn't account for was the fact I had been cheesed one too many times that season and had figured out (on the fly, admittedly) how to defeat the ones he was using. He left without a GG.

@Executor Akamia @The Blackangel I was expecting responses about specific moments in terms of writing in single player games for some reason, but your responses emphasize an important point. The most memorable moments in games are often the ones we make.

"Also replaying a favorite game that you were sure you knew everything about, only to discover something that advances your character that you never knew about."

Those are always some of my favorite moments! My mind is always blown by just how much there is to discover.

Specifics, huh? Ok then, here's a few:

Beating the Plutonium Boss - Blaster Master
Finding The First Crown - Legacy Of The Wizard
Discovering Level 8 - The Legend Of Zelda
Beating Mike Tyson - Mike Tyson's Punch Out
Beating Shadow Link - Zelda 2
Saving Princess Whats-Her-Name from Psy-Crow - Earthworm Jim 2
Beating Even ONE Dungeon - Zelda Goddess Of Wisdom
Beating Tubular - Super Mario World
Collecting At Least One Of Every Item From Every Monster - Castlevania SOTN

That's the best list I can come up with at the moment. I woke up at 4 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so I'm pretty much running on empty right now.

Portal, wherein you are given a 'companion cube' with hearts on it. You bring it around with you and solve a bunch of puzzles with it, then they make you throw it into a pit of fire.
I also like the moment of revelation in Bioshock when you finally meet Andrew Ryan.
Both demonstrate that your free will and choice as a player are constrained, the only choices you have a player have are to either co-operate with the choices a game gives you or turn it off....
Of course I like the portal moment because it made me laugh hysterically and simultaneously feel loss and sadness over an anthropomorphized inanimate object.
