Hard to pick 10 particular moments and differentiate defining moments from games that I love but to name a few I'd say:

Pong
Space invaders
Tetris
Super Mario/Sonic the hedghog for 2d platformers
Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat for 2d beat em ups
Fifa for football games
Resident Evil for Survival Horror
Golden Eye for first person shooters
Final Fantasy for RPGs
Civilization for Turn Based Strategies

Dune 2 was the defining moment for me for that genre.

Track and Field.
10p bought me a six hour game and legendary status as it was at a time when the pub shut at 2-30 and our landlord said he'd stay open until I lost.

Worms and Final Fantasy 7. Two times I've loaded the game when I've got home from work and then decided to knock it on the head at 6am.

For me and in no order-

Goldeneye- N64 (classic, multiplayer was great as well)

International superstar soccer- PS1 (perfect gameplay)

Metal gear solid- PS1 (stayed up for hours playing this)

Crash bandicoot- PS1 (may be not a classic but gave me hours of fun as a youngster)

Super Mario world-class SNES (Was this or Super Mario 64, incredible gameplay and a real sense of victory at the end)

Getaway- PS2 (Not a defining moment of course but I loved this! Going around London in 3d at that time was amazing)

Gran Turismo 3- PS2 (Had the ps2 Japaneese version before it came out her and played this for hours on end)

Tomb raider-PS1 (great for the time and addictive)

Mario Kart- Nintendo switch (Just perfect whether it's single player, multi player or online)

Maybe not all defining moments but my favourite games.

4 pages in and NOBODY has mentioned Halo 2 and the launch of Xbox Live.

Those 2 together brought online console multiplayer to the masses.

So, whilst there are so many, the following for me were pretty defining, standout moments in games:
- Gran Turismo. seeing the original Gran Turismo replays was amazing at the time
- Double dragon - playing the arcade, thinking 'wow!' when the big boss dude busts thru the wall on first level.
- Playing Tekken 3 arcade at uni bar for first time and realising the brilliant range of moves available.
- Resident Evil 2 - when the dogs jump through window of narrow corridor - made me jump first time in a game!
- Grand Theft Auto 3 - realising the sheer open world freedom of it!
- Age of Empires - the first online game I ventured into back in Amiga days- also the first time I experienced someone getting in a huff when they lost online while playing against an old work mate, lol
