Which special game effect stumbled your senses when you first saw it ?

One of my favorites is:
The colour changes in ATRAIN.
The colour will change from day to night and vary from season to season.


I've recorded a sample of what I mean. (day and night changes)
ATRAIN - The movie(HQ)

I get an error for the video it tries to get a codec but fails. Help says I don't have a codec. I figured that out. Stupid Windows.

Hey data, since you like A-Train, you know it's topping the list of games to be reviewed?

Battlefield 2's disorientation effect.
F.E.A.R. 's slowmo power.
Far Cry's white lighting.
Oblivion's bump mapping.
Half-Life 2's rag doll physics.

So many that I found that blew me away, too many to list

Sanity effects from Eternal Darkness. The bathtub scene* just hits you so quickly.
And Pretty much all ragdoll physics... Especially from Destroy All Humans!

*If you are playing Eternal Darkness and are scared easily, do not, I repeat DO NOT go near the bathtub. You have been warned.
