During what game did you say to yourself: wow this is next gen

I never really felt it for the 8bit to 16bit gen change, so the first time for me was after the 16bit gen was over and we were moving onto the 32bit 3D gen with PlayStation, Saturn and N64. The release games for PlayStation made me feel the next gen was here and I was impressed, no specific game, just all of them combined, it was a huge leap forward back then.

The second time was with the move from the 32bit generation to the 128bit generation as it was called back then with Dreamcast, PS2, GameCube, Xbox and then a second GameCube known more commonly as "Wii". My personal games that made me feel the next gen was here were MDK2 on Dreamcast and Armored Core 2 and Zone of the Enders on PS2.

Then finally this gen with Xbox 360, PS3 and now finally a third GameCube revision known more commonly as "Wii U" I felt it way back on early Xbox 360 titles, several of them, no specific one, much like the old 16bit to 32bit gen change there were too many that felt next gen enough that I can't really narrow it down.

What the upcoming generation will make me feel I don't yet know, we'll see when it arrives in a year or two, but hopefully it'll once again make it feel like we've come a long way from the current one.

PS1 never impressed me TBH, I always thought the games looked like **** (except for crash bandicoot type of games)

I preferred 2d games

For the 360 it was Gears of War, and that was a year after the 360's release. I'm sure it will be the same with the U.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

On Wii U? None yet. So far it's mostly ports. I don't plan on ever getting rid of my Wii U, but I doubt I'll ever feel that way while playing a game on it.

If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

For me and the WiiU the thing that made me say omg was in ZombiU and first getting the scanner. I stood in the centre of my living room turning 360 degrees to scan the room in the game. Turning away from the TV and console to scan the back wall of the room where I was stood in the game. Never have I had that kind of immersion.

I honestly don't remember my "wow" moment this gen. But an answer I haven't seen yet was the Vita's AR. Sure, it wasn't implemented very well and it isn't the "newest" tech, but moving my Vita around the room while it tracked the position of the game was very neat. I was playing the Soccer Mini-Game, and I could have looked at the field at ANY angle. It was sorta cool.

Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares? You're a mile away and have his shoes.

Metal Gear Solid 4 or Final Fantasy Xlll back in 2009/2010.

I can't believe how anyone would think that for a Wii U game, unless it's your first HD console.

Metroid Prime on the GameCube. That was the biggest "the next gen is now" moment I've had.
