OXM - We all know you shouldn't go by a first impression. We know that developers save their flashiest sequences for the initial assault on the player's senses, for those parts of the game which generally appear in demos and trailer reels.
Call me crazy, but don't you think that a list of "Top 14 game openings on Xbox360" should have more than 1 exclusive game on the list?
Well not necessarily because it's about quite a specific thing; game openings. Not all exclusives might have great game openings as such compared to the myriad of third party titles.
It had the original Devil May Cry on there - I figured anything after that was fair game.
Don't see why that matters at all tbh.
What I'm getting at is, why title the article "Top 14 best game openings on Xbox 360" when really none of the games are exclusive to the console. Why not just call it "Top 14 Game Openings"? Just seems like a misleading title, that's all.
Maybe because it's from the official Xbox 360 magazine site? Y'know, an entirely Xbox themed site? Could have something to do with it.
Also it's not like some of the games aren't on the 360, so how is the title misleading?
It's surprising but I think they have to do that for most of their articles (it's OXM after all). I vaguely recall a few multiplat-heavy lists from them before that also say "on Xbox 360."
The Bioshock opening was perfectly done IMO. The fire on the water looked fantastic, the sense on not-knowing what was going on around you, and the slow decent into the gorgeous world of Rapture. All perfect.
Agreed, I loved the Bioshock intro. So much so I re-designed the sound as a project. Must get it up on YouTube sometime, I'm rather proud of it :)
