I just added a couple of comments to an article by my pal Austin Grossman. The comments are awaiting moderator approval. I am so wonderful, I post them here so you don't have to wait.
My #1 video game moment.
I can’t describe it here in detail, because it’s a major spoiler. But I can say that it is the moment in Nethack where you find out what you are.
If you’re like me, you probably won’t ever beat Nethack and may only reach this particular moment once, if you’re lucky. So you can read about it it at http://nethack.wikia.com/wiki/Riders. Search for the string “you are”.
I get chills every time I think about the moment when I apprehended this.
My #2 video game moment(s):
All the screens in Atari 2600 Superman where there’s nothing there, nobody there, except the sound of the wind.
