    I'm very curious as to your most memorable gaming experiences. I've had too many to count myself, but these are the best of memory lane:

    In Star Wars Battlefront II, I got killed.

    By a timebomb. Anyone that is familiar with this game will know how close to impossible achieving that feat is.

    Also, when I played as a hero once, specifically Ki-Adi-Mundi - well, you know the pose the Jedi and Sith characters strike when they spawn, their lightsabers ignite, etc? I got sniped in the head before I got control of Mundi.

    Another? I got pushed off a building by a collision with a Jawa, straight into the path of a rocket.

    More recently, I watched my lone marine face down a multitude of Zergs. He died nobly.

    Theres just too many games filled with great moments, but I think I can narrow it down to ten.

    10. Boss battle with Piggsy in Manhunt.
    9. Chasing down Officer Tenpenny in GTA: San Andreas.
    8. The free fall fight with Meta Ridley in Metroid Prime 3.
    7. Owning Zant in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
    6. Throwing my Co-op partner in front of projectiles in Streets of Rage 2.
    5. Owning anybody in Mortal Kombat 2 at the arcade.
    4. Actually beating House of the Dead 2 at an arcade.
    3. All of the fools you have to put down to get to Darth Malak in KOTOR.
    2. Fighting Psycho Mantis in Metal Gear Solid.
    1. Throwing benches and chairs at Ron and Hermione in Order of the Phoenix.

    I'm sure theres hundreds more, but thats all I can think of off the top of my noggin.

    The most memorable video game experience I have had is when I was playing Unreal Tournament 2004, it was a 400% speed instagib CTF 16vs16, and I managed to get a 32 kill streak within 20 seconds... at which point one of my allies shot me in the back, apparently mistaking me for an enemy...

    was playing original Halo co-op with a buddy. The level was control room. At the end of the level he opened the door and started the cutscene. Yet at the same time I was flying behind him on a banshie. So in the cutscene you see me come run him over and kill him while the video continued without him.

    Playing Blitz: The League. I'm playing a friend and he has possession. Final play of the game and I'm up. He snaps at the 30 yard line, hands to his running back who breaks loose.

    I chase after him, and my dude's ridiculously quick. Just as I'm about to sack him and subsequently win the game, my friend presses the dive button. The dude falls to the ground and I leap over him going a hundred miles per hour, missing him completely. Other dude gets back up and walks into the endzone.

    I'm playing Pandora tomorrow on a system link, and the mercs are in the room next to me. I'm a spy, and I'm running down a hallway, being chased by a pair of 'em. I hear a grenade being fired, then "Shit!" BOOM! Screamer has committed suicide! I laughed my ass off.

    On a side note, some guy built about 50 squads of GDI Riflemen, and I nuked 'em. Kinda a waste of a nuke, but damn was it fun.

    In no particular order:

    -Critting a man from a crotchshot/kick/strike in Fallout
    -The first time you tap into the inner beast or whatever they call it in The Suffering
    -Running from that bigass spider thing in FF8 (even though I rather disliked that game)
    -Hell temple in Cave Story
    -Any part of Hell Temple in La-Mulana.
    -World in Conflict. More or less period. Game's high on drama. :p

    - Final Fantasy 9, First time to encounter Kuja. I replayed it thrice just to experience the boss music.
    - Red Alert, getting a medal by Stalin for being awesome.
    - Knights of the old Republic, everything about it was ass kicking.
    - Suikoden 2, the death of Nanami.
    - World of Warcraft, first C'Thun kill.
    - Unreal Tournament CTF clanmatch, flagcap with 3 seconds to spare into 3-3 followed by another flagcap after a hard struggle.

    - killing Overseer at the end of Fallout - the best death animation ever created.
    - the ending of Settlers III - the best punishment ever.
    - nuclear bombardment of Zimbabwe in the first Civilization.

    Climbing the red stairs with the pipe organ music playing and finding myself in the throne room of Gannondorf. OoT was my first 3d RPG and the atmostphere was always amazing even if I can sit down and laugh at how blurry the graphics are... and how bad the music synthesizer is.

    That's about it. None have ever really had my heart racing like that one. Of course, I've never even played an Xbox game before, and the only Final Fantasy I've ever touched (excluding the portal ones and Tactics) is X-2. Baldur's gate/Fall Out2 are the last PC RPGs I played... so my experiences skew me.

    Probably being down 2-1 in Fifa '07 against my friend and rocketing a ball top shelf from half to tie it up.

    Fracturing a guys spine is Blitz: The League is quite satisfying as well.

    Playing as Oddjob on multiplayer in 007: Nightfire and killing people with your hat from the other side of the level.

    And...umm, pretty much the only games I play so that's it :/
