10 Most Awesome Video Game Openings

There’s a lot to be said for a thrilling video game opening sequence; it sets the tone for what is to follow, and even in the instance of a game that doesn’t live up to it for the rest of its course, it can make the title a whole lot more memorable. Whether it’s the cinematic style it presents, the characters it introduces, or the way it defies genre convention, these 10 games had opening sequences – whether cut-scene, gameplay or a combination of both – that are simply unforgettable, and as a result, they’re simply the most awesome that we’ve ever seen. (Dead Space, God of War 2, Half-Life, Heavy Rain , Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PC, Prey, PS3, Resident Evil 2, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Xbox 360)
