    Kill something in Skyrim, and watch the physics carry it away.

    When I was playing Super Mario 64 there was some kind of contact issue between the cartridge and the N64. Mario stood on one foot with the other inside his body, he started having a massive flickering seizure with the most unholy crackling noise I have ever heard and then the game froze.

    It honestly scared the fucking hell out of me.

    This gets my vote too, the whole "naked raiden" scene is just completely random as hell and japanese girls keep appearing on the rader screen. I sure as hell wasnt going to turn the game console off either thank you very much.

    Included a video for anyone interested in watching this madness, has spoilers for MGS2 obviously so watch at your own risk.

    The very first dragon you fight in Skyrim. You have to know something here, I hadn't had a proper computer for nearly 5 years now, and the computer I had back then could only run games upto Jedi Knight Jedi Academy. Therefore, this sighting was all the more amazing because at this point these were the greatest graphics I had ever seen, I was constantly amazed no matter what I saw, but this fight took my breath away.

    The cinematic opening of the Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition. Fuck, that was beautiful D :

    Similar to Skyrim, the first time you see Sovereign in Mass Effect, and then the very beginning of Mass Effect 3 where all hell breaks loose. Goddamn those were AMAZING moments! Also the entire final mission of Mass Effect 2, brilliant mission, where anyone could die at any moment, getting through those impossible odds with every single person alive = one of the greatest video game moments, EVER. INCREDIBLY satisfying as well!

    Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne. I...I actually can't think of any particular one. The whole game in and off itself has been one of my greatest experiences, its filled with awesome moments D :
    Only the beginning was a bit weak, but once the ball started rolling it kept getting better and better. Plus I went for the True Demon Ending so...that kind of speaks for itself, peeps who have played the game will know what I mean~
    I can't be arsed to make separate entries for other entries in the series so ima just mention them: Devil Survivor 1+2, Strange Journey, Persona 3, Persona 2, Devil Summoner 1+2, and soon Digital Devil Saga once I finish both games :3

    Ace Combat: Joint Assault. That. Final. Mission. Holy SHIT, going up against Sulejmani was absolutely amazing! One hell of a tough and incredibly satisfying fight, this game was absolutely worth it!
    If only I could emulate the PS2 games properly...;_;

    Aaaand that's it. All I can come up with for now, maybe I will return once I remember some more :V

    Fable 2 ending, especially if you decided to listen to the final bosses monologue.........first time I ever threw a controller.

    Also, 90% of Demon/Dark Souls is WTF moments, and the other 10% is Bullshit

    In Borderlands 1 when I'm in a vehicle and it blows up, my character gets stuck in the junk and it looks like the world is spinning around reeally fast and it's annoying.

    I remember on my first pc (a 286, IIRC), I had this one-floppy game called 'stunts'. Kinda like trackmania is today, actually. Either way, it had this weird glitch in it. For some reason, if you hit a ramp at a certain specific angle (when landing), your car suddenly flies off in the air, floats around a bit above the scenery before crashing down.
    It was obviously a bug, but one that got me and my friends awestruck (HOW THE HELL DID THAT HAPPEN???). Also keep in mind that this was before any real graphic cards were made, so suddenly having a 3D overview of what was below was pretty impressive. (EDIT: wow...youtube's got video's of EVERYTHING :) ).

    Other than that...Braid's ending. I don't usually get emotional over a game (let alone a platformer), but...yeah.


    @[member='Gundam Eclipse']: have you tried PCSX2? I haven't messed with it much, but on my end, it seems to work nicely (after some installing issues). :)

    PCSX2 works fine for me, that's how I played all the SMT games. PCSX2 can't emulate Ace Combat properly yet, that's the issue.

    Oh...I'll +1 on Bioshock. Okay, not so much the ending, but...

    Oh, and another classic. In doom 2, when suddenly 2 platforms lower from the ceiling, reveiling a spider mastermind and a cyberdemon.

    Getting 10 hours into Final Fantasy XIII and realising I'm STILL walking down corridors and letting the AI do all the work in battle. With the possible tiny exception of the Sunleath Waterscape area, which quite frankly was GORGEOUS, that game had no redeeming features. I sold almost my entire collection to raise the money to buy it on launch day :(

    First time playing my beloved Ace Combat Squadron Leader, being told I have to fly through an underground tunnel. I was shitting bricks the first time. Of course now my flying skills have improved to the point where I can do the entire sequence at top speed while inverted, but that first time was scary.

    A Warhammer 40K match yesterday in which I took a Railgun shot at my opponent's HQ. It hits and causes instant death so he tries a 'Look Out, Sir' save. Which he promptly fails, even though he only had to roll a 2 or above. End result is that his HQ got blown into a billion pieces. Not a WTF moment for me, but the expression on his face when he rolled that 1 was hysterical. That was a real WTF look.
