Which games gave you goose bumps/made your mouth fell open? It doesn't have to be your favorite game. I'm just talking bout games that astonished you for a second, that made you realize that video games aren't just video games, they're a form of art.

Mine:

  • Child of Light: the combination of the graphics and the music is just...wow
  • TLOZ - Twilight Princess: some moments were so intense because of the screenplay... This game made me laugh, panick, feel sad,...
  • TLOZ Links Awakening: I stared for about 20 min at the wall after finishing this game. Nuff said.
  • Skies of Arcadia Legends: not my favorite game but the screenplay was just so incredible, this game shocked me several times. Especially when you're in Valua City and you're in the poor part of the city first and then the extremely rich part. I felt awful for days lol.

Metal Gear Solid 4. Dang, that last crawl through the hot microwave of doom. Really felt like you were holding on for dear life.

I've had various moments in games that gave me chills. Dreamfall: The Longest Journey had several, as did the Thief series. The one that takes the trophy home and never lets go though is a little indie game called Anna. It's by far the most genuinely creepy game I've ever played.

Wow haven't seen anyone mention this game in quite some time, the environments are indeed awesome.

Guild Wars 2. When I see a new vista, find a breathtaking scene, or get this close to beating Liadri, I get goosebumps.

There are no stupid questions, except for the ones that are.

I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Way too many to list.
Here are a few that cross my mind: (obvious spoilers)
Star Ocean 4 = The often called "cheesy" scene when Edge disobeys the UP3 (Underdeveloped Planet Preservation Pact) for the first and only time, which resolves in the death of a whole planet. The catch ? You are on a mission to seek a planet that is suitable for humans to migrate onto, because the earth is dying. And this planet was basicly "Earth 2" Mission failed in the worst possible way.
A rather standard JRPG in terms of story and whatnot, but i found it to be quite emotional and it dragged me in pretty quickly.

Xenoblade = Many, many moments. Xenoblades cast consists of some of the most "down to earth" and believable characters ive ever encountered in a JRPG, which made certain scenes so much more intense, since you could easiely identify with the cast.

Twilight Princess = Up to his final confrontation, Zant was one of the most frightening villains ever. He had a certain presence, an aura of badass :P When he lost it completely, i was kinda disappointed. Luckily, the whole finally wasnt dragged down by it one bit. Also, the atmosphere of the Yeti Lodge was just mindblowing. One of my favourite set pieces and sub storys in gaming in general.

World of Goo = Insanely catching and genuinly creepy atmosphere, all while staying rather charming overall.

If more crosses my mind, ill probably edit it in ;)

If by "down to earth" you mean boring and lacking any sense of expression, yeah your right.

Seriously the cast was the number one flaw with Xenoblade. Outside of Reyn and Riki, the characters were completely uninteresting, almost entirely lacking distinctive character traits.

Resident Evil 2

I remember renting this game on the PS back in high school. My friends and I decided to play it during a sleepover with the lights turned off. Yeah not the best idea. Lol.

No game has ever given me chills(as in being so bad ass that i'm getting ze' epic chills in ze' body..) that would go to the Funimation/Faulconer dub of the dragon ball z series. ;)

Game-wise, Klonoa's(wii) soundtrack at times gave me a few vonderful' goosebumps tickled here and there. This track most definitely springs to mother brain-minde! Once 0:12 ' kicks in it's absolutely magical. :D

A lot: the Mario Galaxy games, Skyward Sword, Journey, Flower, Okami, etc. Very well done games. Beautiful and very engaging.

I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

I have never ever had goose bumps from a game.

The closest I have probably been was first getting the Ultra Sword in Kirby's Adventure Wii but I am fairly sure it didn't affect me that strongly.

Stuff like getting chased by the Poilce when I was young used to give me goose bumps.

Well that's your opinion, and really kind of irrelevant since this is a thread about expressing positive emotions.

Goose Bumps are not necessarily to do with anything positive. Fear is a much easier way to get them.

Oh, this'll be hard... hm...

Fire Emblem Awakening: It all started with the demo. I opened it up and I was hooked, but I swear I stared at the screen on the Prologue for half an hour before actually playing it. The music was perfect, I loved the graphical style, the battle cutscenes and animated cutscenes were amazing... it was and still is simply amazing.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Oh my Palutena, this game is freakin' huge. It's amazingly ginormous. And, it's magnificent. Heck, almost the entire game is amazing (even though I'm only about 31 hours in). Monolithsoft spent so much time with their details and everything... I love it.

The Wonderful 101: Specifically at two parts, the first boss and the final boss, my mouth was hanging open the whole time. Both are pretty much my favorite boss fights ever, and they're both pretty much the awesomest things in existence. They were done so well, they look so good, and the story that happened during the final boss was so amazing... they were stunning.

Link's Awakening is such a great game, and I remember loving it as a kid. now I can hardly play it because the gameboy only had two buttons, which pretty much ruins the game for me now. The dungeons in LA are really great and really demand a faster way to switch items. That story is still one of the better ones in the series, because most other games have the same story.

Also, Cave Story. What Curly does for you at the core, it got to me when I first saw it.
