10 Unforgettable Gaming Moments Of This Generation

WC - With the PS3 and Xbox 360 slowly giving way to the next generation of consoles due out this holiday season, it is time we look back on the incredible moments our HD consoles brought to life these past eight years.

Some moments made us laugh, some moments made us cry, and some moments blew our minds. These moments will most likely be topped with better graphics, better games, and soon we will have a new gaming generation of unforgettable moments to keep us busy for another eight years or longer. However, there are some moments from the current generation that will be quite hard to forget. (Culture)

My favorite memory of this generation: Would you kindly beat me to death with this golf club?

That bit to me was a lot more memorable than going to Mexico.

I also think Three Leaf Clover in GTAIV was one of the most boring, drawn out and long missions and I hated it. The drive to get there was painfully boring.

For me, the most memorable moment is going to come from MGS4.... either the microwave corridor, the nostalgia fight with Liquid hand to hand or the entire ending "Snake had a hard life" to more or less everything Big Boss said.

A few really, really stand out. First, when I exited the vault in Fallout 3. Hooked would be an understatement. Andrew Ryan was ruined for me but the first interaction with a little sister is burned into my subconscious. Oh, the noise she makes and the look of her eyes. And the first time that you pull the trigger on a big daddy, its like u knew u were doing something wrong but had no choice. Returning to Rapture in Bioshock 2 because i had dreamt of that day since i finished the first. Oblivion is very memorable because its the first next gen game that I played. Reading the stories in Lost Odyssey. And the most recent memories come from two games this year. First arriving in Ni No Kunie because I just couldn't believe my eyes and the beast of america song on Infinites title screen. It got me so pumped for probably my most anticipated game this gen. And it didn't disalpoint. Its hard to choose moments from that game because they r so fresh but two are (spolier) when you sing the unbroken circle in the basement of the graveshift bar and at the end when booker is yelling at her saying "the songbird is coming". She is relaxed, realizing what has happened and ...bam...she stops him ala the matrix and Neo stopping the bullets. And then we r transported to rapture!!!
