Scattered Showers: Awesome Video Game Intros

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. =)
