While the Jeff is away, Andrew Pfister, Christian Spicer, Xav, and Garnett play, and take a few more swipes at Cougar Town. But this is no wine-sipping sitcom; we crack open a couple beers and dig in to games, like LA Noire, Modern Warfare 3, BioShock Infinite, From Dust, Bastion, and more. In the warning we return with more of our and some of your moments that stand out as game-changers for videogaming. And we bring it all home with this week's news and Finishing Moves.

  • I think one of the biggest "holy shit" moments in gaming for me was the first time I played DOOM. It was the shareware version...before that I was a big SNES guy and not much of a PC gamer (though I dabbled)...and I couldn't get the thing to run...so I tried this "bare booting" thing and viola I got DOOM running.

    It was late at night and I had to get up the next morning for church, so I couldn't play for long...but I couldn't pull myself away. It didn't have sound (I eventually got PC speaker blips and beeps going) and it still blew me away. This was something I bought on a whim at walmart for next to nothing and it just shocked the hell out of me.

    The next morning I got up early to play it more...before my parents and I thought before my brother...but he got up early too...and he was enthralled as well. So we ended up both playing it until we had to get ready and we were just blown away by this whole world that you could run around in from a first person perspective and how smoothly it ran and how looking around and moving was so fluid.

    DOOM became like a religion for me...summer vacation came shortly after we got the shareware game...and I played it over and over again...coming back from break in my first year of high school I had to tell everyone about this amazing game and some people knew about it and some people needed to hear the good news of DOOM! I was insane...this game completely blew me away...I had to get the registered version to play more DOOM...and then DOOM2 came out not too long after. I can honestly say that I likely wouldn't have gone down the career path I did (programming) if DOOM didn't spark that interest in me for computers.

    This isn't even mentioning the first time I played deathmatch over the LAN in the school computer lab...playing with other people in that game...each person on their own screen...it was gaming nirvana...it was what gaming was supposed to be...it was the fucking future.
