    Your Current Gen. "WOW" Moments of Gaming.

    Any game, any platform of the current gen. from something like graphics being stunning or amazingly epic moments within a game.


    What were / are some of your jaw-dropping moments of the gen?


    Dead Space - Best intro I have ever experienced, that ship pulling up to the USG Ishumira, I'll always remember the sun glazing over space followed by the first moments on the planet cracker ship, from Isaacs suit to how quickly the game picked up, the lights were off, surround sound was active & I shit my pants. OK jk, but I just can't stress enough how awesome the experience was. DS was my fisrt real "scary game as well.

    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots - (Intro & ACT 1) was truly epic for me, I was amazed just from crawling around with Old Snake.
    & I loved the setting, was actually upset with leaving it.

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - Probably the best sequel I have experienced in a long time, the original made the universe but UC2 really kicked things off making everything 10x better. (Story, Set-Pieces, Gameplay) etc. Overall entire game left me satisfied.

    God of War III
    - Simply put the graphics at the time, mostly when Kratos stepped out of the River Styx & the water dripping from him is what really got me.

    As much as I hate to put a FPS in here, (even with the fact that I hate the game anyways *cough* BC2-4LIFE) I was stunned for a level in Battlefield 3 - The one with the aircraft carrier & jet gameplay, that shit was legit. The stormy weather & rain dripping of the windshield, etc.

    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - The whole fucking game was a wow moment for me. I loved the series to death and this game was almost perfection in my eyes. I've played it countless times and it is still one of my favorite games of all time.

    Gran Turismo 5 - Just driving a car for the first time. The physics had changed pretty dramatically (for the better) from Prologue and it was amazing how real it felt. Another amazing moment is racing on the Green Hell or Le Sarthe at night and watching it transition into sunrise. It looks absolutely stunning and has caused more than a few crashes from me being distracted by it.

    Demons Souls - Most of my "wow" moments came from this game. Boss fights, the intro movie, the musics, the gameplay this game has everything.

    Metal Gear Soils 4: GotP - As usual this game continue to amaze me especially the graphics. Just supperb.

    Mirrors Edge - Ok maybe this a rare mention but Mirrors Edge is one of the games that really amazed me. Although its difficulty is well known to everyone, you cant call yourself a PS3 owner until you play this game.

    Metal Gear Solid 4 - A lot of wow moments, but the two that actually made me go 'wow' out loud were that ending and the microwave tunnel.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 - Online of course, me and a team mate riding a quad bike into the enemy M-COM station off a roof, humming the A-Team theme over our Mics, killing people, squashing one and setting the charge before getting back on and riding off again, still shooting.

    Uncharted 3 - The boat level, stunning

    Journey - Upon finishing it, you just have to sit back and go wow

    Skyrim -
    When you discover the icy seas by the College of Winterhold it is a thing of beauty.


    Probaly a few more but off the top of my head that's it for now.

    Totally agree with you about those three games and they are up there with my gaming moments.

    Uncharted: Drakes Fortune - The very first PS3 game I played so obviously this get gets an honorable mention. The graphics are absolutey stunning. The very first level and the whole island setting just gave it such a shining feel I thought

    GTA 4 -
    Driving through LC during sunrise was one of my favourite things about this game.

    RDR - Rockstar clearly outdid themselves with this game. This game is simply jawdropping from the stunning graphics to the excellent gameplay. Just riding my horse through the plains was simply unforgettable.

    Gran Turismo 5 - Absolutley beautiful cars driving against stunning scenery such as the Swiss Alps is just fantastic.

    One of my first ps3 games was motorstorm pacific rift, when you see the intro for the first time that is pretty nice.

    GT5, driving yourself is amazing, but B-spec in nice scenery and especially in the dark is WOW.

    The biggest “WoW” moment I can remember, was when I played Fallout 3 on my old 360, first game I had every played on the new gen consoles. And when I went from vault 101 and emerged into the wasteland for times.the first time. I was absolutely stunned. I’ve also had a few moments since then, several during my first paly through of RDR. And a few cruising around in car in the middle of the night on GTA 4. Ah, good

    Skyrim - Just playing the game for the first time is just amazing.

    LittleBigPlanet 2 - As soon as I discovered the Music Sequencer...

    Burnout Paradise
    - Playing through the game with friends when I first got it from PSN a year ago.

    There are quite a few games that have made me go wow but the ultimate wow came from playing God of War 3.I loved everything about it,the boss battles in particular were just amazing (Poseidon and Chronos) but the graphics made me go wow every time,the levels,the scenery all just amazing.A couple of other games to include would be Infamous and Batman:AA.After completing both of them i was not only gutted they were finished with but more annoyed with myself for not playing them sooner.

    ME3 the ending was wow...loved it! RDR, just hunting around on my horse aimlessly was awesome. hog tying and laying ol girl on the RR tracks for a trophy was wow. getting chased by bears was...actually the whole game was wow moment for me. Demons Souls, the first 2 hrs of playing it trying to reach the first set of stairs was wow.

    Dominate!

    I know i have had so many of those "WOW" moments in the current gen of games and yet i am struggling to think of any?

    Uncharted 3 - The whole cruise ship chapter was mind blowing. The details of loose items rolling around on the ship in the stormy sea and the waves crashing over the sides of the ship. The way the cruise ship turns into a labyrinth after it rolls on to the side and starts flooding. The huge glass roof holding back the seawater while Drake traverses down a giant chandelier...epic. Also the cargo plane over the desert and the London chapters were awesome moments as well.

    FFXIII - Eveything about the game had "WOW" moments for me and there were plenty of them. Exploring the archylte steppe and seeing the giant Long Gui roaming around for the first time was epic.

    Bioshock - First encounter with a big daddy.... need i say more?

    Castlevania - Nearly all of the boss battles.

    Killzone 3 - The giant MAWLR and the jetpacks on the snow level.

    Definitely... RDR has many "WOW" moments
