Mark from GamersFTW writes his opinion on the top 5 opening scenes in games.
Some fond memories from this list :) Not necessarily an opening scene, but I absolutely adored the scene where you first exit Vault 101 in Fallout 3, when the sun hit your eyes - magical!
.....and Liam Neeson being your Dad. Let's not forget Liam Neeson being your Dad
Never forget. Or, he will find you and he will kill you.......see what I did there XD
JRPGS have best opening scenes.
Will never forget the opening to the original Half Life - fully deserves to be on the list. It was masterful exposition; story-telling at its conservative best.
Some nice openings there. Completely agree that an opening can make or break a game. A couple of personal favourites include: Bioshock Infinite, Alice: Madness Returns, and Battleblock Theatre.
Alice: Madness Returns - now there was a game that had a setting that was looking quirky in the rear view mirror, but ultimately dull gameplay.
Yeah, looking back it was a bit fiddly and a lot of the enemies were repeated. Still, it had a lot of atmosphere and some great visual storytelling to make it worth a playthrough.
Half life opening was incredible.
All the Mass Effect feels have come flooding back to me. Was a great opening following on from the first game, and Martin Sheen makes a terrific bad guy!
All if these are really great choices. YLOU, what a feels trip that takes you on
Wildcard: Battleblock Theater. That opening scene still makes me laugh. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Flipping love Snake Eater.
