- Dom's death scene played to the tune of MadWorld in Gears of War III.
- My friend going apeshit over No More Heroes, Super Smash Brothers Brawl, and LittleBigPlanet. He used to update me on Brawl with every announcement. I didn't think much of LBP, but he loved that game, and I'm a little fonder of it now. No More Heroes was a Crowning Moment of Funny in my gaming history.
- Playing Bioshock the moment my 360 red'ringed, and me, never taking it in to get repaired.
- Playing Metal Gear Solid 4 even though the whole plot was spoiled for me. Playing MGO even though the community was annoying.
- Playing Aliens Vs Predator on PS3 and playing as an Alien during the demo. Gnarly finishing moves.

- Scoffing my impudent friends for arguing about Call of Duty and Battlefield when Kingdom Hearts, Little Big Planet, and DC Universe Online were clearly more original, superior games.
- Console war arguments

- The most authentic video game commercial I've ever seen.

- I remember experiencing extreme levels of hype for the first Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Brawl in particular led to many fun months of speculation, which lives on today with the announcement of Sm4sh.
- Using the Virtual Console to discover games like Kid Icarus, Punch-Out!!, and Mega Man.
- My Wii had two big problems in its lifetime. One was near the end of 2008 when it would freeze up on the Wii Menu (going into maintenance mode sidestepped the problem). Turns out an automated email from something my aunt had subscribed to was so massive my Wii couldn't handle it. Luckily, it was fixed with a firmware update in the beginning of '09.
- I have fond memories of playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney inbetween classes in college.
- Playing Mortal Kombat 9 obsessively every day for almost four months. And once against my first girlfriend shortly after our breakup. Talk about Catharsis Factor!
- Spending the mornings before class in high school hanging out with my clique of nerds playing Mario Kart DS, forming friendships I still have. It was somewhat popular. We eventually had more players than the game could support!
- Dissidia Duodecim: Final Fantasy
- Batman: Arkham City
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
- Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
- Super Smash Bros Brawl
