You know, those moments in games where you shift to the edge of your seat, mouth open, trying to comprehend what you are seeing. Either because they are so thrilling or challenging, or just because they are so incredibly awesome that you have to bow to the genius.

For me, I'd probably say my favourite moment was the final chapter of Half-Life 2; Episode 1, and looking back at City 17. That really was an amazing moment.

The fight at the end of MGS4, and REX v RAY earlier on in the game.

This may come as a surprise to anyone looking at my avatar, but I thought the very ending of Metal Gear Solid 4 was crazy.

I've got a moment also from HL2:Episode 1! But mine comes just a little before that.
It's the encounter right before that strider at the end of the game. You're cranking up one of those slow crank gates so you and Alyx can get through. You manage to get the gate high enough so Alyx can crawl under, but just before you get the chance to go through yourself, that strider comes into view....and in an instant, you know that you ain't going through that gate.
Just awesome.

MGS4's ending(s) reminded me of Lord of the Rings. The only difference is, where LOTR ended 87 times and I wanted to stab Peter Jackson in the gut, MGS4 ended 87 times and I wanted to weep in Kojima's arms like bitch.

Rex vs Ray fight, YES. I mean Rex just headbutts Ray and stuff.

Also the first time I saw Kratos rip a dude in half in God of War. And many subsequent times throughout GoW 1 and 2.

Ninja Gaiden Black, was fending off those god forsaken black spider ninja, jumped away in the air after killing one, and by instinct did an on landing UT.  Managed to behead three of them at once who had all been right on my tail.  That was just too rad.  Also, the apartment building sequence in Alone in the Dark, that was a great set piece.  Too bad about the rest of the game.

HL: EP2. The fight in the house, when you are surrounded by the Combine and Hunters.

Call of Duty 4 was a freakin' roller coaster.

Aeris dying was pretty unexpected too.

Anytime I played a boss encounter in God of War. Those scenes were just epic.

The original Tomb Raider and more than a few of the levels. Never really saw anything of that scale in a game before the original TR. The added bonus was you actually traversed them too.
