Bioshock was a "Whoa" the whole time through. It was pretty close to my favorite all time!

The end of Assassin's Creed was pretty 'woah' too, especially once you got in to really finding out what each and every thing on the floor and the wall was.
How do you find out what the stuff on walls means?

i kinda just thought it was over and stopped playing?

Cod4 and Halo1&3 both were pretty amazing

but gameplay-wise Assassin's creed was my favorite

Half Life Two, Episode 1 and 2.

Then all versions of Half Life two with mega-high res. model pack.... Whoa X2

Then playing CS:S in 1200p... Whoa.... BOOM HeADSHOT!

Then Crysis. Yea the game sucks a lil, but you guys cant deny, running Very high detail at 1440x900 (Yes, I can play at these settings) was like Sex and Ecstasy for my eyes. I mean I think I went through withdrawal symptoms trying to play Counter Strike after watching the final cut scenes in Crysis... They were.. B.e.a.-utiful!

post #136 of 211
HL2 - the scenery and the puzzle solving... It rocked my gaming world.
Portal - well, lets just say FEEDBACK LOOPS are great(I give you an A+ if you know what that is ;-)
NFS...
I remember NFS hot pursuit on my 3dfx voodoo ... (3d acceleration was just so kewl back then!!!)
And in NFS Carbon, when you hit the turbo, and reach about 120+ mph(NICE)

Medal of honor... on the beach

Elder Scrolls - Oblivion - WHEN I LEARNED THE CONTROLS - LOL

oh yeah, RPG's ... Darksun and Never Winter Nights(the aol version!!!!)

BUT MY NUMBER ONE WHOA OF ALL TIME... ::drumroll:: .......

1986 - Super Mario Brothers 1: When I finally ran under Bowser, and jumped on the axe(I tried ~50 times before this), and realized that there were more than 4 levels!!!!(yeah, what do you expect... I was 6!)

Halo for Xbox back in 2002. First hunter battle. I got pissed when I learned about the single pistol shot to the orange spot, I'd been having epic 20 minute battles with them previously. After that, they weren't even a challenge.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit - When I first played it on my dad's computer. 3D acceleration blew my mind. It looked soooo good.

COD4 Multiplayer - the first time I played, when I realized five hours had passed.

Hahaha, that T-Rex would definitely be a WHOA!!!

Some of my moments are when playing Trackmania Nations drunk, as well as Race 07.


SPOILERS BELOW:




Mine are in HL2: EP2 when Alyx gets pwned by a hunter, and the ending of Episode 2. When Eli gets pwned by a floating thingy.

Also, in Episode 1, when you are on the train with Alyx and you crash.. and the zombie thing is still in it's seatcage.. That was crazy..

So many "woah" moments in the HL series... another one for me was right after the train crash, just how human Alyx seems. She's shaken and distraught, it's remarkable how real she feels. Excellent design and voice acting.
