Top 5 Opening Cinematics and Movies in Video Games

One of the things I like least about modern video games is the increasing tendency to kick off any given title with a explanation of the game world's back-story.

FF8 was epic back in '98! Opening sequences and cut-scenes moved a lot of JRPGs back then.

The Street Fighter 4 intro was awesome! I never got really good at the game but every time I popped it in I watched the intro.

Soul Blade was an excellent choice. Tales of Vesperia, Kingdom Hearts 2 and Suikoden 3 are some of my other favorites.
