To the moon. Gaming's weirdest, coolest moments on the lunar surface

GR: The moon has always been an object of fascination for me. Probably because it's a giant rock floating up in the sky, and that's just crazy, man! You know? But even in games, when I look up at that skybox and see that massive cheese ball glowing in the night sky, I just want to go up there and touch it, hang around in it's low gravity, and explore it's mysterious surface. I mean, don't you? Sounds like fun, right?

Luckily for me, there are games out there that let you pull a Neil Armstrong and set foot on the moon. Not only that, you get to do some pretty awesome stuff when you visit some of gaming's orbiting satellites. Here are some of the most memorable moments you, too, can experience when you step into a new frontier and visit the moons in games.

I have to say, I was a little disappointed that FINAL FANTASY IV isn't on this list. It is one of the best games around and the moon was a big part of it.

article is about gameplay on the moon or a moon like setting. You don't have that in 'To the moon'. I really enjoyed that game, though.

I remember being around 6 years old putting in majoras mask for the first time and being so excited. Then my 6 year old self almost shat himself just at the menu screen with the image of majors mask lol. My mom was so pissed after having to buy the game and the expansion pack when she found I refused to play it since I was too scared to even start it up.
