    Good article. As luck would have it I own(ed) all of these games so I agree all of them have some pretty epic moments. The only game on the list I dont like is Uncharted. I just dont get (aside from pretty visuals) what people like about that series.

    The Dirt series and Burnout are 2 of the most fun driving games and a big part of that is the excellent damage model in both and the amazing physics in Dirt. Ive had some many wow moments from those games I make sure I have a way to record the videos every single time I play them, even if its just for a few min.

    GTA (of course) and Just Cause are in the top tier of open world games. The amount of small details in GTA are just staggering. You can sit there and watch an NPC for a few min and just follow what they do and what happens and be high entertained. Since none of the action for NPC’s is scripted anything goes. Seriously one day just watch some NPC’s and I promise you will get at least a few big wow moments and probably some laughs in short time. Just Cause is just a flat out over the top fun game and the grappling hook makes for some amazing situations. Ive played the game for hours on end never doing a single mission and just had a blast doing so.

    Halo Reach and the sandbox Bungie created is nothing short of epic fun. Pretty much every match has an awesome moment at some point. Im so glad they put the save film feature in because a great many of those moments are worth watching over and over.

    God of War 3…what can I say!? The game was amazing and it started off in the most epic way possible. Sadly those first 30 min were the biggest and best the game had to offer but even with that being said the entire game is jaw dropping fun and should not be missed by anyone!!

    Uncharted 2’s breathtaking scenes definitely justified my PS3 purchase.
