Neither does EA's Neil Young.

I get a little teary now during the end credits of Sam and Max Hit the Road. But that has nothing to do with game itself.

Remixor, I just realized what your tag reminds me of: those reviewer portraits they used to have in Zzap!64 magazine. Yours would probably be for a game scoring 85% or better, a typical thumbs-up pic. Not that this has anything to do with anything, mind you.

Fitting indeed.

I thought I'd bump this thread to complement this thread.

Half Life 2: The first second I stepped out of the building to see the city at the beginning of the game. My Jaw dropped to the floor.

Half life 2: The moment I grabbed a saw blade using the gravity gun, thrusted it through 2 zombies and cut them in half. Oh my goodness

KOTOR:
Spoiler:
The moment I realized that I was Darth Malak's master, and that I have lost my memory


TLJ: The moment I step into the fantasy world of Arcadia

My jaw dropped with Deus Ex - and it dropped profoundly.
Trep is Deus Ex that good? I am yet to play the game, but I've been hearing everyone here raving about it. And I know what good taste you guys have Sometimes multiple paths turn me off a little coz I dunno if what I'm doing is really wrong and gonna screw me up down the road. Is there anything like that in the game, or every path you take will lead to success?

In Grim Fandango , the first time Manny crosses that massive bridge, I had to stop and admire the way the water beneath shimmered. beautiful.

In Thief: The Dark Project , in the very first mission, almost fell out of my seat laughing when eavesdropping on that one guard who was whining about how lonely he was, and how the other guards seemed to despise him. Listening to the conversations was almost more fun than completing each mission. Not a "wow!" moment, but one of my favorite unexpected game moments.

In Black and White it was cool when the villagers would start saying my name when they worshipped...and equally creepy when approaching a nearly-deserted village and hearing that creepy voice whisper, "Deeeath...." The little details really made that one a blast, can't wait for the sequel!
