PlayStation Universe chooses its favourite 12 videogame openings, which includes the likes of Silent Hill, Resident Evil 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4.
MGS4 definitely deserves the top spot. What an epic intro.
Did anyone's stomach turn when they saw Bayonetta up there? 12 games out of the thousands that's come out in the history of PlayStation, Bayonetta?
dmc3 should defo be up there with some of the best intros on ps2 and 3
DMC3 had the most kickass intro of all the DMC's.
I was wondering where that was. :/
Visari is unmatched, for me at least... :)
MGS4 .. Simply one of the greatest games of all time. What a masterpeice!
Yeah, MGS4 is the best bar none
I can't wait to see how this list will change by next year. Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, SOCOM, Twisted Metal... I'm sure at least one of those will have an incredible intro.
...or all of them!
Uncharted 3 for sure will be another great intro
I wonder if it will be walking the desert like in the trailer. They did it with Uncharted 2s Train scene, then Nathan will collapse in the desert and have flashbacks leading up to that point
Or it could take place on the Plane and it would crash, then the flashbacks happen
Can pretty much fill the list with MGS games. MGS2 probably is highest in my mind, but they're all great. Onimusha had a cool intro too... DungeonSiege I believe. Along with DevilMayCry (but Bayonetta is a good replacement for that)
MGS1 IMO had the best intro in the MGS series.
Shadow of the Colossus. Just the story and the entrance to this mysterious world was eerie and calm Dark Cloud 2. Poetic intro, very endearing and simple
For a second I thought it was mentioning original playstation games, but nonetheless MGS4 does deserve the top position. Intro was orgasmic!
My first thought was playstation exclusives, then saw Bayonetta and went ...
COD4 , bayonotta , little big planet , heavy rain and dead space ???????????????
I like Naruto shippuden Accel 2 intro than these
come on what that list ??
Did you ever touch FFIX , FFXII , Dark Cloud 2 , FFX , WKC and CC:FFVII (that just action-RPG and RPG games have amazing intro check the list of other genres games ) ?
Waring!!!!!!: He is new gamer (The article writer) ?
While I don't completely agree with the list either, I fail to see how he is a "new gamer" simply because you don't agree. FFVIII, RE2 and Silent Hill are older than any game you mentioned. Honestly, I'm not surprised to see a lot of newer games. This list isn't saying those games are the top 10 games of all time, just the best intros. It's not hard to believe newer games would be able to have a more cinematic opening to draw you in. Before FFVII, there were almost no great intros (other than for nostalgia purposes) in terms of the epic variety. CGI helped a lot back then to make great opening sequences. Today, of course, they don't require the use of CGI, since the in-game graphics on many of the games look good enough to do the job (MGS4, for example), if they see fit.
there animated intros
I know best he said best intro
but come on as example MGS4 poor intro it just for fans of MGS
RE:2 it wasn't that great either FFVIII
FFVII i love it too much but am not sure if it one of best intro because i'am fan Of FFVII and afraid to become fanboy that why i didn't mention FFVII
it not just about CGI DMC3
I meaned by new gamer , he just start with 7th gen
No offense meant, but I can barely understand what you are typing, so maybe I'm misunderstanding part of your context. I never said FFVII was one of the best, but it was one of the first impressive (for the time especially) CGI intros, and CGI and anime intros came around the same time, unless you count crappy stuff like what the Ys series tried, which I wouldn't qualify as anime. Again, I never gave an opinion one way or the other about RE2 or FFVIII, but they are not new games. However, I will give an opinion that FFVIII's intro (are you even sure what intro means? It's not the overall presentation throughout the game.) is better than FFVII, IX, X and XII. Also, to be blunt, if you consider MGS4 intro to be poor, you either never played the game, are not a fan of the series, or have bad taste. You are entitled to your opinion on the matter, of course, but in this case I completely disagree. Again, I will say I don't agree with the list completely (of the newer games on the list MGS4 and UC2 are probably the only two that belong). However, I will also say, for the most part the list isn't that bad, especially compared to some of the ridiculous lists submitted as articles.
fail list is fail. heres the Legend of Dragoon Intro? one best ever!
haha I was thinking the samething :P
Legend of Dragoon comes to mind. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
What about legacy of kain: soul reaver? "Tumbling, burning with white hot fire, I plunged into the depths of the abyss. Unspeakable pain, relentless agony, time ceased to exist. Only this torture and a deepening hatred of the hypocrisy that damned me to this hell. An eternity passed and my torment receded, bringing me back from the precipice of madness. The descent had destroyed me. Yet, I lived." Best dialogue ever! man that game scared the shugar out of me when i was a kid.
1. MGS2 2. MGS4 3. MGS3 Fuck! i need a MGS collectors edition asap.
Soul Blade for PS1 is one of my favorite intros. That was before all this Hi-tech tomfoolery.
LAME list. While those intros were incredible, they almost COMPLETELY ignored intros on the PSOne and PS2. Uh, does anybody remember Gran Turismo 2? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
where that child who just disagree ??????????
MGS4 and FFVIII, can't go wrong with them. They had a pretty epic intro. Like no homo, but watching the MGS4 intro was orgasmic.
Dead Space.....Bayonetta!? Seriously? If we are going back as far as PSX era, then do include this in there. One of the better intro with great musical score: Soul Reaver 1 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Was expecting more classic PS1/2 games on this list :S
Demons Souls should have definitely been there! The intro is so incredible, with the amazing music and the great subtitles... not to mention the great CGI! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
no DMC3..... Lets Rock!
Spryo the Dragon!
