The eye stabbing part of Dead Space 2. It had a legit physical impact on me, because I was so very "OMGWTF?!?!?!?"

Cutting your finger off in heavy rain was the most intense moment for me.

So many great moments in Heavy Rain too. We really have had a great gen so far. All these people who complain all the time about this generation of games...I have no idea what they're smoking.

Well not sure if the most epic but for me, the most memorable was when Super Mario World came out for the SNES...Me and my older brother took turns and played through the game and beat it...I found the picture we took of the End Game screen with me and him sitting together in front of the screen...

The latest biggest moment in gaming i can remember was the ending in RDR..only game that made me sit at the tv well after the end credits with my mouth open...WTH just happened.!!

EA's NBA Live franchise cancelling their game project right before release date in B2B years, an unbelievable EPIC FAIL from one of the biggest developers.

the first boss fight in god of war 3 - the water based boss - posideon?

there's a bit where the camera pans out and kratos goes flying straight through the boss. the whole opening of god of war 3 is just massive and brilliant but that one little bit is extra badass.

It's so hard to pick just one, so I'm compiling the best for me. For anyone that doesn't understand this thread already, SPOILERZ Z0MG:

There are two for me from Final Fantasy IV. The first is the "fight" where Cecil becomes a Paladin. It took me so long to realize what you had to do, it was just amazing. There has not been anything like it since.

The second is at beginning of the final boss in Final Fantasy IV. He kills your whole party, and there's a long scene (in the battle mind you) with your previous party members praying and their spirits come and urge you to fight on, healing you up to full.

Final Fantasy VI Floating Continent. As Matthew said previously, it was epic. My first time through the game I played 30 or 40 hours at the least, so I figured it was the end. No idea it was the halfway point.

Leaving the sewer in Oblivion. As was also said previously, the being able to go anywhere you saw was awesome. I played Morrowind before it but it didn't leave me with that feeling of awe.

Someone mentioned this on a previous page, the ending to MGS3. The single greatest moment of my gaming history and I don't think anything will ever top it.

Link, sword, Ganon's head.

Not THE but a couple personal favorites of mine that hasn't been mentioned:

1. X-Men Origins Wolverine. The sentinel freefall fight.
2. Vectorman. The final showdown with the giant evil robot with a nuclear warhead for a brain is inside a friggin tornado.
3. No One Live Forever 2. The battle with the ninjas in the trailerpark during a tornado.
4. Bionic Commando/Rearmed. Beating Hitl- er "Master D" by exploding his head.
5. StarFox 64. The Forever Train.

Not so much that epic, but pretty awesome and a fond memory for me in video games was learning to fly the helicopter and gain altitude while being chased by the cops in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and having Herbie Hancock's "Rockit" playing in the background.

Of recent times I would say the Max Payne 3 shootout in the Aiport Terminal while Health's "Tears" is blasting made time stop for me. Such unorthodox finesse and blood.

I got a couple...

1. Firing the Coronocepter for the first time in Turok Dinosaur hunter. Made me giddy with power
2. All of Star Fox 64

but my fav has to be... and this one will take a tiny bit of explination.

On one of my playthroughs of OOT, during the final boss, after having beaten Ganandorf and run down the falling tower. I had music playing int he background, in this case I was listening to some Ozzy Osbourne. The second the tower hit the ground and Zelda was locked out of the field with my sword, the song Perry Mason started at the same time this was all happening and Link realized that something was coming out of the ground, the music started to pick up. I don't know how the rest happened but every movement of Ganon's during that scene coincided perfectly with a beat or a guitar riff. And the battle ended right about the same time the song did.

I shall never forget it.

FF7 -- reuniting with Aeries, only to get c-blocked by Sephroith. The boss battle that ensued after, with that totally depressing theme... I've never felt so emotinally invested in a game as much as I was during that fight.

Defeating any of the bosses in Demons Souls and Dark Souls were pretty epic for me. Such a feeling of accomplishment...

Another absolutely amazing experience in gaming for me is the convoy in Uncharted 2. At the time I had never played anything like that. I remember thinking that this would be a cutscene in any other game and in this I'm actually playing it and jumping from car to car, throwing people under tires, blowing stuff up.

It was very epic.

That first Dragon attack right at the start is pretty epic. Also the first dragon you atttack is a pretty epic fight.
