Five of the best introductory sections ever seen in games.
opening sequence for someone like me who loves story in games truely was awsome. It's just too bad mw2 couldn't continue on this amazing opening.
What a terrible list! These 5 are the best in the history of video games? *Faceplam*
Guitar Hero...lol *DOUBLE FACEPALM*
Yeah horrid list. They choose the opening for the first Onimusha when the 3rd games opening sequence to this day is still jaw dropping. Seriously crap list.
and Jean Reno ftw.. in Onimusha 3...
DMC3 opening sequence was just madness :)
"...in its own right Call Of Duty 4 still had some of the best storytelling moments in any game ever..." What a shallow commnent, this guy must have some seriously low standards for video game storytelling. There are tons more games that have a better storyline than CoD4. But I gotta admit, that game was super fun when I played it.=D
The list was made by a ten year old kid.
WTF? Onimusha's opening better than Onimusha 3's? This is more like a list of the only 5 games the author has played rather than the 5 best openings. What about Bioshock's opening? Or MGS4's? Or FFX's? The only ones i agree with are CoD4 and maybe LBP. The rest were mediocre.
Another kid who's been playing video games for like 3 years decides to make up a "Best List of All Time". Look, child, next time you decide to clutter up the internet with this bullshit, save yourself some hate mail and name the list "Best X of the Last 5 Years". That way you don't have to toss in some game into the list that you've only heard about. In REAL best intros of all time news, the intro to MechWarrior 2 is still amazing, even today. http://www.gametrailers.com...
The First level of GoW 3 was pretty awesome. Too bad the combat was boring.
Really? No MGS4 "War has changed..."? No inFamous "Start button" explosion? Wow
EPIC FAIL! I mean where is Bioshock, Metal Gear Solid 4, Devil May Cry, God of War 3, hell even the classic Zelda OoT opening with navi? lol this guy must be 12 years old
I wish I could slap whoever made this list.
have got to agree. zakhaev "our so called leaders" still sends shivers down my spine when i watch that intro you could feel the emotion in the voice great voice acting, great intro
Did you just imply that COD4 has a good story in any shape or form? Generally, people who like good stories play MGS, Deus Ex, Bioshock, Bioware games, etc... and not Generic Terrorist Shootan 4 I really don't get why people thought COD4's opening was amazing. Evil one-dimensional terrorists execute a person. That's it. Don't tell me it's "deep" just because you see it from the guy's eyes. As if no one ever thought about what it would be like before. Also, Guitar Hero? What?
People who play good stories play MGS… hehehee! Funny guy.
the fact that you don't understand the story cause ur IQ isn't high enough doesn't mean it's not one of the best stories EVAR
and Half Life is where?
Agree on Onimusha 3 having an amazing opening sequence, but I though 2's was a little better and more emotional.
I would have had any of the MGS games and Final Fantasy Games in that list. MGS2 intro and FF 8 both had epic intro's
every MGS had super mega epic intros, especially the first game which lets you play with a mask for a few minutes only to get to that epic title screen in the elevator while snake strips little by little, so badass! FF8 CG intro was shockingly good. i used to put the 1st cd and start the game only to watch the intro every now and then. wtf is a guitar hero game doing on a top opening sequences list, seriously! this gen the best intros i have seen are: *Dead Space, superb space scenery before your eyes, as your comrades are talking you can see the huge abandonned ship slowly getting closer to you, then after a shaky and noisy landing here you go making your first steps in the "quiet" USG Ishimura, surrounded by silence. *LBP, controlling sackboy for the first time, waving his hands and making crazy faces, running to the intro level with all the devs faces and that old guy warm voice explaining the gameplay basics with a funny tone, pure fun. *Uncharted 2, train sequence = epic start *GOW3, you're on the back of a titan, kicking dozens of skeleton's butts, only to be attacked by a liquid scorpio-spider horse. talk about epicness...
MGS2 was good, but in my opinion the MGS3 intro was way better.
I'm still in a dream.....
MGS2 intro is a huge remake of MGS1 intro. masked hero, sneaks in underwater, take the elevator and title screen. freakin awesome!
Errrrrr no. MGS 2 intro was Snake running down a bridge in the rain wearing a stealth cloak, then bungie jumping onto the tanker.
Too bad that wasn't actually the games opening.....lmao. I assume you're talking about Raidens opening sequence, which wasn't technically an opening sequence since it was several hours into the game.
well yeah, i was obviously talking about raiden. the whole thing on the tanker is more of a prelude. the real game starts on big shell.
Best opening in recent memory by a mile
I thought inFamous had a pretty good one too. All those cars and stuff blowing up around you, charging Cole's body. EPIC
That is a game that had a great opening. Start off as a simple bike messenger, end as my favorite new super hero. This list is pretty bad, but it is this guy's opinion, though i'm sure that there a couple of games he thought of later on that could be substituted for Guitar Hero lol
That opening grabbed you by the ears and kneed you in the face. It sets the tone for what would be hours of awesome gaming time.
