Ocarina. The reason I bought a Nintendo console back when I was a Sega-only kind of guy.

Good call on Ocarina.
Others: Super Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess, Resident Evil 1 and 4

Man, some of you are so young! The FIRST game that was jaw dropping for me was SMB 3. My friends and I all passed out and then did backflips when we went and saw The Wizard and it was unveiled.



Actually I remember going gaga the first time I played Sonic the Hedgehog as well. It was crazy back then.

For me, I was never really into graphics, even after I switched from the SNES to NGC (missed the N64 gen). I noticed the graphic differences, saying they look nice, or bad, but no game made me "ooo" or "aww" or "wow" that I can remember. I am just not that easily impressed with graphics.

Wind Waker. That game is the definition of beautiful.

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.


Its very dated looking now, but Virtua Fighter looked amazing when I first saw it.



Majora's Mask's looks left me speechless. Not necessarily because of the graphics themselves but the dark theme of the game

I remember when I was little I thought Atari games looked pretty awesome and realistic! But a game I remember making me drop my jaw was Ocarina Of Time. Recently, I thought Mario Galaxy looked awesome.

Fuzzy, Backloggery.


The first Tomb Raider game on PS1 left me open mouthed in awe. I'd given up gaming back in the Zx Spectrum days and had totally ignored all the early consoles. Needless to say I had a PS1 and my own copy of Tomb Raider a couple of days later.



Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, the graphics are AMAZING for a Nintendo DS game. I can't wait to play it next week!



Windwaker and NeoGeo games get me pumping!



Donkey Kong Country - I had never seen colours like that on the telly.
Mario 64 - The platforming game I had been waiting for, yet didn't know it. A playground for your thumb. I'd get as high as I could then just gorp at everything below.
Ocarina of Time - How many times did I ride around looking for a good spot to watch the sun go down, wow!
Quake II - I bought my first 3D video-card to play this, and couldn't get over the true sense of geometry, just being inside a 3D room amazed me.
Unreal - This one changed everything for me, huge open worlds that'd never been done before. Well, at least until Half Life blew us all away later that year.

Oh god I nearly forgot Conflict Freespace, the explosions were AMAZING for the time, and the opening cut-scene was beautiful! The Shivans still scare the crap out of me. I'm rambling now.



The original Crash Bandicoot. I went in EB to buy Tekken 2 and saw it playing on one of the demo TVs. Stunning and jaw-dropping. I bought it right then and there.

Plain old gamer :)


When I was a kid Super Mario Brothers 3. On the ps2 I would have to say the FInal Fantasy 12. Wii Super Mario Galaxy, Smash Brothers Brawl.



There are others. Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, Tekken 2, Tekken 3, Crash Bandicoot (PSX games), Spyro the Dragon (1-3), The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning, and more... They are such good games with great visual quality, especially Croc 1!
