Now that Next-gen is this gen, What were your proud/shocking/disappointing moments of last gen on any system?

For example:

1. Going an entire match without dying on COD4 and getting 40+kills

2. Finally playing FF7 on my PSP and loving it to the point it is now my 2nd favourite behind FF10

3. Playing MGS4 for the 1st time, i was in awe of the graphics and the prologue.

4. Red Dead Redemption's ending. I was actually caught off-guard and was genuinely disappointed at what transpired. One of the best endings ever IMO.

5. The $599 PS3 starting price forced me to seriously consider getting an X360 but Uncharted came out and the rest is history:-)

I have plenty more but those moments stick out for me.

1. Stopped liking Nintendo Consoles

2. Got bored of Mario and potentially liked Zelda a bit less

3. Bought MGS4 4 years ago and still haven't played it.

4. Realized I like interactive Novel games and didn't notice before

5. Disappointed in the way story telling has gone down in exchange for gameplay but the result is not good enough. Just a disturbance in the harmony.( Good gameplay can't always make up a horrible story because gameplay will always fall down being repetitive down the line and motivation to finish the game falls off with a bad story )

hmmm, hopefully Red Dead gets better because the start is kind of slow and the voice acting is painful

LAST YEAR'S MODEL

Nice.

Fuck you to anyone that said last gen sucked. I remember so many of those.

I'll add being physically exausted after playing MGS4. So much shit happened in that game that I could not focus on any games for the week after. No bullshit.
