Do you have a favorite game engine? Do you remember any awesome moments in a game that got you thinking what kind of technology was being used? Each new generation of engines seems to push realism higher and higher. Any major leaps you recall?

The first time I ever really wondered "how the hell are they doing this?!" was when I first played Half Life 2. Being able to smash wooden planks apart, the facial animations, it all blew me away at the time.
The first (and only) game engine that I ever really tried was called RPG maker. It was capable of creating games in the style of old SNES RPG games which I really liked.
I remember being really impressed when I first tried Doom 3. It had a spooky atmosphere and it felt pretty life-like. I was also very impressed when I saw the Unreal Engine 4 and I'm looking forward to playing a game made using that engine.
