Scattered Showers: Awesome Video Game Intros

Oprainfall writes: “You’ll have to forgive me for this short introduction of today’s Scattered Showers, I’ve done myself a mischief by fracturing my wrist whilst snowboarding. Far from wanting this to turn into a Cammie Dunaway E3 presentation, I’ll just cut to the chase.

“Some video games have intros, some of those intros are awesome, here are some of those awesome intros (my wrist really hurts).” (Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, Chuck Rock, Culture, Donkey Kong 64, Final Fantasy VIII, GameCube, Katamari Damacy, PS2, Retro, Sonic CD, Soul Blade, Suikoden III, Super Smash Bros.

You can not beat FF8s intro, it amazed me when I first bought it...and still does today.

I think we've got to give credit to the great soundtrack aswell though

Seeing the intro being played on a tv in EB Games is the whole reason I bought FFVIII. I had no idea what the game was about, but it looked gorgeous and I knew I wanted it. :D

The best part about it is that there's no dialogue, it's the music and actions on screen which draw you into it.

and this was a PS1 game

Agreed, FF8's opening is still probably my favorite of all time. Metal Gear Solid 2 has a fantastic opening as well. Also, I randomly listened to the "DK Rap" at work yesterday. It's still bad in the best possible way. Also also-- great list. =)
