The beginning of Planescape: Torment is quite a Jesus Christ moment i must say.

edit: ah... no one got the joke.

FF XII. Every time I turned it on, I thought "Jesus Christ, what the fuck is this?"

Really? I enjoyed FFXII a lot, and its opening was quite awesome. There wasnt a massive problem with its battles-there was barely any difference at all, im my opinion.

Anyway, as I didnt post mine, the final fight against Ocelot in MGS4 was pretty jesus.

@iAmJohn: What happens?
#10 Posted by alsnuts2 (674 posts) -

Micowave crawl in MGS4.

Two reasons:
I couldnt believe how long they needed me to mash on the triangle

I couldnt believe how brilliant and it immersive it was

#11 Posted by darkspirit138 (479 posts) -

Im still expecting loads of people to come along with things that happened in Eternal Darkness. That game was pretty kick ass, from what Ive heard. It was pretty jesus as well.

EMPIRE CITY BLOWS UP!!!

In the vein, the bomb in CoD4 was pretty sobering, too.
#14 Posted by Kr3lian (310 posts) -

I have a few, but some probably won't seem all that cool to the youngsters:

1) The end of Super Metroid
2) The beginning of Star Fox
3) Turning on Mario 64 for the first time
4) Seeing Vivec in Morrowind for the first time
4b) Entering the final dungeon in Morrowind
5) Some of the battles in Mechwarrior 3 made me flip out...what an awesome forgotten game
6) Encountering the regenerating creatures in RE4 for the first time

Two words:

Silent Hill.

Final Fantasy is the franchise I grew up with. Some people grew up with Sonic or Mario....I was a nerd at birth and flocked to the series. I appreciated how every entry in the series was unique, but played the same for the most part. XII deviated too much from the source for me, I just could not get in to it.

I'd say getting around 600-700 coins in Sonic 3 and Knuckles. I wrote it down somewhere, but I'm sure I lost the paper telling me what the number was.

The end of Mass Effect was a Jesus Chirst moment for me - very epic and very suspenseful.

I had no idea that was going to happen at the end =( talk about forcing myself to play through a game that scares me only to see that. Is there ever a break with that game?

#25 Posted by Gearhead (2251 posts) -

Probably the scene in Bioshock, I really had no fucking clue. Or my first game of Tribes, I could believe I was playing with people who were not in the same room.

That's a hell of a good list, and I'll agree (haven't played all the way through RE4, though).  I'll add a couple.  Mine probably aren't going to seem all that cool to the young'uns either:

1)  Final Fantasy VII's CG cutscenes were jaw-dropping at the time.  Between Aeris's death and the Weapon cutscenes, I was pretty much floored every time I turned around.
2)  Soul Edge's opening cinematic blew me away back in the day.
3)  Realizing just how expansive and how much you could do in Morrowind for the first time on Xbox was pretty damned amazing.
4)  The last fifteen minutes or so of Quest for Glory IV had me just shaking my head in amazement.  It was an incredible sequence of events at the time.

A recent one for me was when you first exit the vault in Fallout 3. 

#28 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

1)Nuke explosion in COD4

2)The final boss fight in Crysis on the carrier
3)The first moments of being surrounded by crabheads in HL2 in We Dont Go To Ravenholm


i dunno im sure i had more in bigger games but i cant remember nothin' ...
#29 Posted by Eric_Buck (1289 posts) -

For something planned in a game probably the Nuke explosion in CoD4 but once in online on GTA IV (Cops n robbers) I was the last robber and had to get to the boat. I was on this narrow bridge with a lambrogini thing. This hummer comes straight on for a collission (it was a narrow bridge so nowhere to go) and as I though he was gonna smoke me he ramped on my lambrogini thing into the ocean. Jesus. Christ.

I am one of thosae that loved FFXII for all it's differences, and had an awesome time playing it.  Can't wait until XIII!

The cinematic of finding the first zombie huntched over someone in the first Resident Evil was a JC moment at the time.

Playing cod4 when I died after the nuke.
Also in Mass Effect I was amazed I was able to not only talk my way out of a fight, but to get the bad guy to take care of himself for me.

The dual PH fight and the "in water" ending of Silent Hill 2 (a solemn Jesus Christ) 

as well as entering Ra-... no.... the entire intro to Bioshock

there are many other moments (I have yet to play MGS 4, and Ive heard that it has plenty) but I can't recall as of now :P
EDIT: I agree with those above, the intro to inFAMOUS caught me off guard and had me panicking lol

MGS2: phonecall between Snake and Otacon

MGS4 epiloge

to name a few

#43 Posted by manurok1 (191 posts) -

Lots of the scenes in Bioshock.

#44 Edited by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

The first Berserker encounter in Gears of War, as well as the entire last segment of the game while you're on the train.

The bathtub scene in Eternal Darkness, hot damn.

MGS3, the Shagohad chase. Holy crap, hahaha.

The last contract in Mercenaries, where you have to jump a chasm using a crappy jeep. Also, the intro to that contract, where it's practically armageddon and the only reason you're alive is because of the tank you're in.

The first time I summoned Judgement in Golden Sun.

The freefall Ridley boss fight in Metroid Prime 3 (though, just the beginning of it, since you get used to it after about ten seconds).

The first mission of Star Wars: Rogue Leader, especially the trench run. It was exactly like it was in the movies, and awesome as a result.

The flying sand worm Colossi in Shadow of The Colossus, as well as the final one, just from how damn huge it was.

When I completed Freebird on GH:2 on expert. I practiced for weeks for that, damn it.

There have been numerous crazy times I've said something to this extent in both Burnout and F-Zero but there's no way I'm naming them all.

The end of Halo 1, and to a lesser extent, the end of Halo 3.

#45 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

The Call of Duty 4 nuke and ending. It still gives me shivers to this day.

Yeah, I about died, no pun intended.
#48 Posted by Roboyto (80 posts) -

So many accumulated moments over years of gaming. The first ones that pop into mind are

-Aerith's death in FFVII, still upsets me every time
-Gray Fox's appearance during MGS against Rex
-The very end of Dead Space, eventhough I was pretty sure that was coming, it still made me jump
-inFamous' ending. Pretty much the best 'JESUS CHRIST' moment in recent memory for me, and the best game ending in a while
-So many moments in MGS4. Getting a headache trying to unravel the plotline, the final fist fight and all its awesomeness, the fight at the end of act 4, the appearances after the voice acting credits and all that follows.
-MGS3 Sniper fight

#49 Posted by LeoMinor (261 posts) -

Recently, seeing "You Know Who" at the very end of MGS4.  I remember saying out loud "Holy Fuck!"

I was thinking about the same...

but there is another ending that i'm trying to see and it promises to be equally or even more satisfying called rebirth.
