Xboxer360.com - Top 10: Cinematic openings on Xbox 360 titles

Mark Ainsworth of Xboxer360.com writes "The opening to a game is incredibly important; the initial things you experience and see can have a lasting effect. In extreme cases it can either make you walk away from the game right there or hook you in such a way that the next 12 hours of your life belong solely to the playing of the game." (Lost Planet 2, Xbox 360)

Bioshock tough to beat...
I thought the Bioshock intro was incredible. The graphics were insane and still hold up to day. The ride down in the sub when half the plane falls in front of you was just incredible. Bioshock Infinite looks like it will challenge it tho...

Halo 1 opening was beast, and of course reaches ending as they are the same :P

I totally agree.

BioShock is #1 opening. I still remember the moment when I entered the "lighthouse"/buildin g. One of my best gaming moments ever <3

... I own a PS3 now and I bought BioShock 2 a couple of days agoo. Not the same feeling/atmosphere ... at all. They should've skipped the multiplayer and kept focus on the storyline instead.

Looks like we'll have to wait for Levine's BioShock Infinite to have the same impactful atmosphere that BioShock 1 had.

Lost Odyssey was the best opening for me. Epic battle.
