Only recently enough is Journey and Child of Eden, both games visually impressed me beyond belief and were beautiful games. Bayonetta's final jeanne fight was the other big wow I got, as well as Bayonetta's final boss.
When i saw the credits at the end of episode 3 i literally said "wow".
Other games gave me a similar feeling, like Ilusion of Gaia, Terranigma, FFX, Shadow Hearts 2, Shenmue I & 2, Xenogears and others.
But Xenosaga blew my mind.
My three major game trauma: Shenmue, Xenogears and Xenosaga
I'm a badass reporter!!
Bioshock, Uncharted 2, Red Dead Redemption, Metal Gear Solid 4, LA Noire.
A lot of people may have considered LA Noire to be dull and repetitive, but I really appreciated the uniqueness of it.
Just speaking this gen:
Batman Arkham City
Shadow of the Collosus HD
Little Big Planet 2 (at what people could create)
Pacman Championship DX
Metal Gear Solid 4

Smash Brothers Melee (They took everything good about the first game and ramped it up 200%.)
Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Can't say anything that hasn't been said 1,000 times.)
Ninja Gaiden 2 (Xbox 360) (Still the most intense action game I've played yet.)
Portal 2 (The dialogue, the story, the characters, the atmosphere, all amazingly done. Not to mention the gameplay wasn't too shabby either.)
Sonic Unleashed (Xbox 360) (It was the first Sonic game that felt REALLY REALLY fast, and the graphics were just jaw-droppingly gorgeous. It was also the first 3D Sonic game since the Dreamcast that was decent, in my opinion.)
Soul Calibur 2 (The game was unbelievably fun and played incredibly fast, those graphics were INSANE for the time, just like it's predecessor's were, and Link. 'nuff said.)
Kingdom Hearts (This was a game like no other when it was released. The story was interesting and fun, the premise, while weird, was just crazy enough to work, and the game was epic. Not a fan of it's sequels, though.)
Left 4 Dead (I was more wowed just by how plain FUN it was getting 4 friends together and playing it for the first time. The sequel is good too, but I still prefer the first.)
Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (PS3) (Loved it until UMVC3 was announced.)
I'm a gamer dang it, not a pc gamer or a console gamer, just a gamer.
