No Final Fantasy 8...come on

Final Fantasy VIII's opening is way more a trailer (with way more spoilers than it should have) than an opening. So I guess it can't really be considered a game intro.

If they ever do a FFVIII remake, I hope they remake the trailer. I mean, opening.

It's not a trailer, and I don't think that split seconds of screens from in the game that you're about to play are spoilers. You don't know what those screens mean at all, you don't even know if they are actually a part of what you're going to be playing. Clearly you have no understanding of what FFVIII's opening is.

An opening scene is supposed to start the story, not show random scenes from the entire game. What's the point in showing Rinoa having an interest in Seifer for half the game if the freking opening scene showed that she'll be with Squall in the end?

DragonKnight1731d ago

There's no way to know that that's the case, and the focus of the opening is the battle between Squall and Seifer anyway. All those scenes are split second and most forget about them once they start playing the game.

I agree but most of these trailers are from this last gen. It's like it was their first generation playing games.

Soul Blade 1 should be on that list.

Epic intro.

Oh, and Devil May Cry 1.

...dunno why i didn't just edit my first post.

And dmc 3 as well. The fight between dante and virgil was amazing.

The best game intro ever was from Indigo Prophecy. It was heart jumping and different from any game I ever played.
