Top Ten Gaming Moments - 5

I can’t pick a favorite game, but Final Fantasy Tactics is top two. There are so many epic moments to the game it’s had to know where to start when I think about it. But when I first thought of this game one moment stood out instantly. Weigraf is my favorite non-playable character. He says my favorite quote ever (I actually put it in my year book in high school senior year I do believe). Weigraf is a heavy influence on everything that happens in the beginning of the game, cultivating in a battle at the end of the first chapter. Later on near the end of the game he shows up again. This time you must not only fight him, but you have to fight him in his super form, Velias. When Weigraf uses the zodiac stone to transform he also calls down 3 demons to fight along side him. This become a truly tough battle. In the end you must come out victorious, but the getting there is a hard journey. Weigraf pulls out all the stops in this epic battle. This battle really stands out to me because it s…

The legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is my favorite Zelda game. I spent much of my childhood playing it on the SNES. Probably the game I played the most on that thing. My favorite part was the third boss in the light world. It is this big caterpillar looking thing that can only get hit from the back. I was a dumb little kid, so I was pretty bad at that kinda stuff when that game was out. I knew my way around that game pretty well but that boss gave me grief every play through. The best memory I have of that boss (Moldorm is the name of the guy, I just Googled it) I was at my grandparents house and have it with me. I was trying to beat Moldorm and afer several close attempts it was getting close to dinner. Right as dinner was called I had sealed victory. I was so ecstatic because that was one of the first times I was able to kill him. I picked up my reward and was again called to the dinner table. I was able to leave my game happily knowing I had finally bested my opponent.

Would you kindly. I was a little late to the Bioshock game. It took me a while get to playing some of the xbox greats. One summer to took to conquering Bioshock. The games visuals were stunning and the environment was awe striking. The best part of the game though was the story. Being stuck in this underwater city filled with these creatures and big daddies, reading the experiences and listening to the audio files of these high profile citizens of rapture as I journey forth really set the mood matching the disturbing scenery. The story cultivates in a confrontation with the creator of this Utopian underwater dome. The twist when you learn of your brain control by the one you trusted as a friend was an amazing moment for me. Really made the game come into focus for me. It completed the story for me. Although this is just one climax in the road during the game and not the end (you need your revenge of course it) cements the crazy tone of the story and really brings it home. Bioshock is …
