Twinfinite counts off on some of the best video game opening cinematics throughout the years.
Tekken 2 was amazing!!
I still play online. I'm about 5000 fights in.
Final Fantasy 8 is the most memorable, for me. I also remember being very impressed with Shining Force 3's intro, at the time. I even spent an entire day trying to download the 10 megabyte video, with a dial-up connection. Then, when it was 99% done, I completely brainfarted, and picked up the phone, hanging the download. I was devastated, and had to restart the download. lol!
100 percent in agreement with that ff8 was an epic opening to a video game.
I remember Sonic CD, one of the first with an animated opening. Killer Instinct arcade was another that I used to watch (also the first fighter to get me out of the whole SF/MK phase). Tekken 3 was the third.
You could honestly fill most of this kind of list with Metal Gear titles.
MGS3 has got to be my all-time favorite video game intro.
I think the Xenogears intro should be on this list, simply for its "holy hell, what is going on here?" factor.
Ff8 for me. The game not so much, but that opening was incredible!
Love the opening scenes in FFVIII & GOW III.
Came here to expect Parasite Eve Opera Cinematic on the list Nope , its not on the list ಠ_ಠ
