It happened to me yesterday night, with Darksiders 2.
Clearing the second big dungeon in order to restore "that" place in order to receive an important key, I just sat down and enjoyed the view, while the valley returned to life with all the water flowing back, with some epic music in the background.
Up to this point, there were puzzles where I would stay 5-8 minutes wondering what the hell would I do, and finding the solution never felt so good. Why was it good? Because of the great combat the game has. Death is fast, agile, strong and a witty character, which never comes off as dull or overly arrogant. It also has a big open world to explore and do whatever you want, while riding a horse.

"This is it" I said, I found a game where I could actually sit down for more than 5 hours and only turn it off because it was late.
Man, I fee like a kid once again.

-Cool story.

Far Cry 3
Metroid Prime
Curse of Monkey Island
Willy Beamish

These are the 7 games I feel like they were made just for me. Playing every single one of these games at some point enveloped my life. They all somehow speak to me not just as great games but feel very in tune with my personality. In fact talking about them makes me want to replay them all.

FFXII. I've always been a huge fan of JRPGs and the FF series, but this game was just perfect to me. It's the RPG I've dreamed of for years.

Fallout 3. When you leave the vault for the first time, I remember just looking over the wasteland and being in awe. Love that game.

I played Willy Beamish on Sega CD when I was a kid. I remember loving the Nintari game but I would always get stuck at the vampire babysitter thing. Also, the loading times were the worst I've ever seen.

No loading times on PC least none I remember.

Probably when entering Mexico the first time in Red Dead Redemption is the most obvious to me at this moment.

Traversing the snowy mountain side in Journey with a 'friend' was another one that just struck me as incredible; as our steps began to slow it was indeed an emotional moment.

Persona 3. At first the sheer Japanese-ness of it was turning me off, but I started enjoying the overall story, the break social links offer between RPG grinding and eventually the music.

The World Ends With You. Again that Japanese setting, this time however it was the insanely complex (and brilliant) gameplay/difficuty shtick I had trouble wrapping my head around.

Right after you find your wife dead in Dante's Inferno a falls house into hell and the camera pan's down and it almost looks 3D. It gave me vertigo this first time I saw it.

about... 10 hours I think into Monster hunter Tri is when that moment hit me. I had tried other MH games before that and hated them...

but Tri was different it was a much less steep learning curve and it changed my world.

Also, Patapon was the same. Picked up the Demo to try it out, eithin 3 hours I already drove back to gamestop to pick the game up. Haven't looked back since!

I pretty much obsessed over Baldurs Gate, NWN, Dragon Age, and Morrowind when they came out. However, over the years, there have been many moments that validated gaming for me.

That Emu Kid says:
Rock Band
Uncharted 2
Assassin's Creed 2
Professor Layton and the Curious Village

These are the first games that come to mind when I think of stuff that was freaking impossible for me to put down. Everything else was pushed to the side as I squeezed absolutely as much playtime as possible into these games in the days after their release.

Final Fantasy IV (Well, 2 when I played it)
Super Mario Brothers (Because I had never seen or played anything like it at the time, I played this game SO much)
Metal Gear (NES, this will irritate Fox, but again I had never played anything like it, never beat it as a kid but I tried so many times)
Zelda: ALttP (I would finish this game and immediately start over to make sure I didn't miss anything)
KotOR 1 and 2 (I can play these games over and over trying to create the ultimate Jedi)
Madden 2005 (Creating whole custom teams like I did with Super Tecmo Bowl but with a game that actually played like real football? Yes.)
Diablo 2 (I had no idea what a loot whore I was, but I am one and this was the game for me)
Mass Effect 1 (I've gotten 1,000 gamerscore on it a few times now, I've played this whole game so many times)
Oblivion (I thought I would hate the open world, but this game sucked me in)
Resident Evil 5 (It's the weapon upgrading thing, just obsessive)

FOGE says:
Mass Effect 1 - first moment was when I was doing the planet exploration. I just love the idea of exploring unknown worlds
- second moment was when talking to Sovereign the first time. Such an evil and unique villain
Mass Effect 2 - first moment was the creepy mission with Jacob (black guy - sorry, not sure if i have his name right) where you look for his father and well... I wont spoil it. Such a crazy mission
- second moment was getting on that collector ship. It was so eery and legitimately creeped me out, which is not easy to do.
