What console game served as your first jump to HD gaming?

#1
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

Super Mario World
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.

I've played over 500 hours of DMC2 and consider the game good.

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.

TrackMania Nations Forever.

Oh yeah, I picked a PC game, what are ya gonna do?

[But seriously, I don't have a HDTV, so the PC is the only thing that can play games at HD resolutions]

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.
