I would have to say when I won my Mew at Toys 'R Us. I had to go through and get 15 of the game pieces, but I finally won! (I had other people with me helping, So I think I only went through the doors 5 times.) It was one of the happiest moments of my life.
Of course, now Nintendo won't let me transfer Mew to my Saphire game.
Yeah, OoT was creepy the first time through - good atmosphere for the N64 (what am I saying - the BEST!)
Mine is an OoT moment too - first time I was in Hyrule Field - running towards Hyrule Market Town - the day was ending fast, and I wasn't sure what would happen next, so I ran full speed ahead...
Then I see it all go dark and I hear the howl, and the gate is so close... but then it starts to raise up, and the torches go on - so I freak out, locked out in the field with what I thouht would be wolves or something.
I turned around to see the farm and see the lights go on a flicker in the distance (I thought this was really cool!), and then... zombies! Spent the rest of the night fighting off the undead until sunrise and the gates went back up - ran in very fast and vowed never to get stuck out in the fields at night again... but I did... and it was still cool.
Oh yeah, and beating SM64 with 120 stars and watching the end sequence - that was cool - "Thank you so much for to playing my game!"
i dunno why, but the bit in Wind waker where... hang on
where Tetra transforms into Zelda was quite cool, mainly just because it played the music from the title of ALttP. i also spotted the music in OoT when you're getting told the story of how the gods made the earth...
if theres one thing i like about nintendo its that they re-use the same music, not in a dull, tired way tho. its comforting...
and as for mario 64, i spent hours and hours and hours trying to get all 120 stars (most of the hours were spent on just getting the last 5) to the point where i hated the game soooooooo much. then when i killed bowser, the only difference was he said something like "oh, i didnt know there were that many stars". and that was it. except of course that yoshi gave you 100 lives so you could reply all the levels you had grown to resent by playing them to death for all 120 stars.

Was this after you beat it with 2 hands, or not? (I'm a bit confused...)
Yeah, I beat it a few times with two hands. Then one day I was playing and was trying to hold a drink at the same time. When I found that I could reach all the buttons needed for SM64 I started a new game that I played with just one hand.

I can see how SM64 COULD be played with one hand, but I wouldn't choose to.
Yeah, I wouldn't recomend any one play it with one hand either. It's sorta uncomfortable/painful. But it's my favorite game, and I just want to get as much enjoyment out of it as possible. I can't wait till Super Mario 64x4 comes out!
The first time I played SM64 I got a feeling that was barely similar to the one I had when I received my N64, the one I had when I first played OoT, when I received my GC, and when I first played TWW, but it was different. Stronger...
I am too young to remember if I got as excited the first time I played SMB3 or any other NES games.
And I know it wasn't published by Nintendo, but Star Wars: Rogue Leader excited me a lot as well.
Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.
