    This has probably already been done to death a million times but fook it:

    You know the rules.
    Only one answer and cut the waffle.

    For me it has to be the first encounter with Bowser on Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64. When I finally realised I had to grab his tail and rotate the joypad to swing him round, for some reason just stands out more than any other gaming memory. Class.

    With Killerbee on point 1 there, no doubt. Just thinking about it reading the Advent Children feature.

    working out how to toast the big 3 headed tentacle thing on half-life, and then doing it :)

    Edit: Since everyone is putting more than one, I'll add all the bit's with D.O.G. in from half life 2.

    I was going to say the same - but I'll go with getting the bastard docking computer and using it for the first time.

    Realising that you could move onto the next room in JetSet Willy without collecting the objects in the current room! Amazing stuff at the time!

    And the Aeris thing, of course.

    Walking out of the crashed ship in Unreal and seeing the landscape and the waterfall for the first time.

    /remembers Voodoo1 card with fondness

    To put that into context, Unreal was the first game to really use the Glide stuff. My 3d card didn't get *that* much of a workout with QuakeGL...let's be honest. Some lighting around the projectiles and funky water.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaanyhow. Yeah. Unreal. Woo! Used the card to stunning effect.

    The end of Zelda OoT. Probably one of my proudest moments and highest achievements. If only I could put on my CV...

    "Playing" the two graphics demos that came with the PlayStation on release was rather amazing.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Then again, the Psycho Mantis and the Ninja battles in Metal geat were both really good.
