Five Incredible Opening Acts in Video Games

Hardcore Gamer: It’s not easy making a good first impression. Gamers don’t like to wait. We like our action, our adventure, and we want it all now. While many games take a long time to show their best moments, there are rare instances where the game hooks you from the start. Making those opening moments valuable can mean a lot to keeping a gamer’s attention. Here are five games that know how to make a good first impression. (GameCube, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PC, PS2, PS3, Resident Evil 4, Retro, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Xbox 360)

No love for The Last Of Us? I thought that was one sweet ass opening.

My personal list:

1. The Last Of Us
2. Dead Space 2
3. -- I give up. There are just to many.
