For me, Soul Calibur 2 on Xbox.

(Not my TV)

Playing the game in 720p was a revelation in the potential of the coming next generation consoles. So crisp & clear. Only con was not being able to play it in a true 16:9 ratio.

What you say GAF?

Call of Duty 2 and Project Gotham Racing 3 (Xbox 360 launch).

Some Xbox games supported HD but at that time I was still playing my games on a Sony Trinitron CRT.

Gears of War I think

Wait - maybe it was some racing game... I don't remember which one...

ACTUALLY - I might've seen a madden demo in gamestop, but I'm not sure if that counts

Damn those colors, those lines, that music.
Then Donkey Kong Country came and ripped a hole in Mario World. Destroyed my perception of video games.

And because I know people will complain that I didnt use the current definition of HD (720p and 1080p(Seriously, 4K will be what? High High Definition? Nope, just the next HD)), Its Deadrising. Not the most impressive game, but having all those zombies on screen made me so happy.

Must've been some random FPS on PC that I was running in 720p.

Console-wise, I think it was Kameo (360). Looked amazing.

I had Enter the Matrix and Soul Calibur 2 for the XBox but I don't think I played them in HD. First HD game was Project Gotham Racing 3 or Condemned.

On consoles, it was Blue Dragon. It was also the first game I ever played in widescreen, since my PC monitor was 4:3 at the time. It was definitely a great choice for me, and it set a positive tone for the generation in my eyes.

Technically, there was alot of HD games I played but were hooked up to a SDTV.

For my first HD game that was hooked up to a HDTV, it was Fight Night Round 4.

HD gaming or HD consoles? I was gaming in HD on my computer years before consoles could do it. Console wise, it's the Wii U.

Well, not counting PC games then Gears of War I think. Although the first thing I actually played was the demo for Dirt.

Looked amazing.

The only tone that came out of that game for me was "Nothing"

Final Fantasy XIII on PS3 which, while it wasn't my first PS3 game, it *was* the first game I played when I finally got an HDTV earlier this year. Mind-blowing stuff.

PC games were doing HD before consoles. Even before Xbox 360. So it's a no brainer.

On consoles, WipeoutHD.

I guess the only downside is that there wasn't much room to go up from there.
