GameSpy has posted videos of what they believe are the top 10 most cinematic moments in gaming history.
I'm biased, but I thought the cinematic scenes in Gears of War were phenomenal. I'm still in awe everytime I play through and watch them. I can't say if or where they belong on that list because I haven't played any of those games.
The top 10 scenes are available for viewing. You can tell if they are supposedly "cinematic" by just watching them.
I don't really feel like watching those videos :-\
then games are just not cinematic at all.
BULLSH!t look up the Onimusha 3 into trailer and you'll see why it should be #1 most bada$$ cinematic ever!
One of my favorite cinematics to this day will always be one of the bonus endings in Final Fantasy X-2. The bonud ending where "Tidus & Yuna" are reuniting & Tidus comes back to the real world. That cinematic has some AMAZING graphics even to this day. Another one of my all time favorite endings is the Dark Side ending to Knights Of The Old Republic when we see the Star Forge in Space with a bunch of ships right next to it, & in front of it, & behind it.
sheeeit. You could seriously fill this entire list with scenes from any of the final fantasy series.
How FF7 didn't make #1 is beyond me. NO game has had the same impact as the death of aerith.
ya know...I dont get it. How is warhammer 40k #1? Guess it is just personal opinion but everything else in that list seems better ...
I love that WC3 is getting some love, that game had great CG movies and arthus is just a pure renegade badass.
Anyways... Onimusha 3 should be number 2, FF7 (aeris death) as number 1 and i also think FF8 and FF10 should be in here somewhere. RedAlert2 has awful acting therefore should be off that list and if that Gears of War commericial with the mad world song counts, that should be up there also.
I would have to say that the opening cinematic from Onimusha 3 is probably the best cinematic I have ever seen. That was jaw-dropping when the game came out. Should be int the top 3. Some of the Final Fantasy cinematics are good, too, but Onimusha 3 will always be my favorite.
When Ares shoots that ..tree-trunk, was it?...and it goes through the desert, right onto the mount on Cronos' back, and right into Kratos's heart as he's about to pick up Pandora's box.
THAT was truly amazing.
The list is missing some seriously good cinematics:
Diablo II intro
StarCraft ending vid (Fenix VS Overmind)
Mortal Kombat Deception/Armageddon intros
Suikoden III intro
MGS4 trailer/short movie cinematic with Rayden
Warhammer Mark Of Chaos intro
Gran Turismo 3 intro
EDIT: Plus the ones that other users mentioned specially princetab's God Of War. Love that scene.
I 100,000.000 % AGREE WITH METAL GEAR SOLID 3 ENDING..... IT'S STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE ENDINGS OF ALL TIME.....
When I clicked on the link I was saying to myself MGS BETTER BE ON THIS LIST.... the fight with BIG BOSS at the end was unforgetable.....
Those W3 trailers where noticeable too (footman and orc teaming against a demon) and the downhill charge with the drums of war (remember the zoom on the crow's eye). These trailers showed great cinematic skills and where top of the line back then. Anyway, almost all blizz cinematics are worth mentioning, except LOD ending...
