What's your favorite gaming moment?

Postby Nish on Sun Jan 27, 2019 9:34 pm

We all love video games. We've all been part of this community for many years. We've spent thousands upon thousands hours of gaming in between us.

What is your absolute favorite moment you've had while gaming? What game is it and what made it so special?

I'll start. L4D Launch.

I remember when the beta for L4D started. It was a couple weeks before the launch.

I was really excited about this. For me it was this whole new concept of a game, never had I touched a game like this before. At the time I was only 11 years old (2008). It looked like so much fun, and I really wanted it. lockwyn played with a couple of his IRL friends during beta and I would also try it out with them while playing on his computer. The only map that you could play was No Mercy. It wasn't the full one either, only map 1 and a shortened map 2.

Ultimately, I got the game as an early birthday present. (Couple of days before release)

There was a bunch of UKCS'ers who gathered a group of people for versus mode (4v4). I remember Alias being one of the drive-forces for this. He'd gather a bunch of people for mass-chaos in L4D and we'd always have a blast.

I don't remember all the people that joined in on this chaos, if you do remember, do type it! It's one of my favorite moments in gaming.

I'm old. My 1st computer was an Oric Atmos but Oric went bust while it was in for warranty repair. Then I went for a Commodore plus 4. They discontinued it. OK I though, go for the worlds best seller and stuff the attempts to get a good BASIC. So there entered my life the C64 and I spent the credit note on the Atmos on games. Took ages to get a datasette and the first game I loaded up was Ghostbusters. I was hooked. GHOOOOOSTBUSTERS.

One of my favorite gaming moments was from Witcher 3 when Geralt finally finds Ciri. That was so sweet in a game that's so badass. haha
