According to a survey carried out by online retailer, Nuking a Lemming is the gamers favourite gaming moment.

The survey took place over 2 weeks on the retailers website, and asked customers to choose their favourite moment from a list of classic games including Sonic, Goldeneye and Tetris.

Lemmings came out top, with one customer saying "There is nobody who doesn't feel pure pleasure from watching a small squeaky creature with green hair, flying across the landscape and screaming 'oh no!' as they plummet to almost certain death".


The top 10 moments according to Amazon's survey are:
  • 1: Nuking a lemming
  • 2: Sound of the motion scanner in Alien vs Predator
  • 3: Completing Tetris Game B on level 9, height 5, getting the dancing Cossacks and the Space Shuttle
  • 4: Getting chased by the T Rex in Tomb Raider
  • 5: Completing a double-perfect over M.Bison to complete Street Fighter
  • 6: Fighting Psycho Mantis in Metal Gear Solid using a rumble pad
  • 7: Leading your team to glory in Championship Manager
  • 8: Clipping an enemy in the head from 500 metres through a sniper rifle on Goldeneye
  • 9: The dogs leaping through the window in Resident Evil
  • 10: The final defeat of Doctor Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog

Some really fine gaming memories which we'd strongly agree with, and with Microsoft's next-gen Xbox available to pre-order from Amazon now, and launching on March 14th, and Nintendo's Gamecube launching later this year, it seems quite a safe bet to say that a whole load of new classic gaming moments are just around the corner.
