Pixelitis Picks: Best pre-title screen intros that had us at “hello”

It’s no secret that attention spans have shrunk in recent years. With so much stimulation coming from all directions, keeping someone engaged for more than a few seconds can be difficult.

Knowing that, imagine the mountain developers must climb when making a new game. After all, they not only have to compete with Twitter, Facebook, Netflix and so on – they have to compete against other games. It’s possible that that for many, hooking someone before they even press start would be the Holy Grail found just beyond the static company logos but before the whole shebang gets going.

We’re talking about memorable cutscenes that took a bit off the top from a game’s story and gave a taste of what was to come. It was a little reward for firing up that cartridge, inserting that disc or just starting up a digital copy. In some cases, even a little gameplay could poke its way out from behind the title screen.

So join us as we wax nostalgic for some of the pre-title screen intros that sunk their hooks into us and never let go. That is if we still have your attention, after all.
