Nerds on the Rocks took to the streets (or the internet) to determine the Top 10 Most Memorable Gaming Intros by conducting a user poll. Here are the results.
Oh come on FF8 should of been on the list instead of FFX, it had the best intro in the entire franchise, among other things. :)
Back when devs took the time to polish a game and not rush it out i miss those days:(.
FFVIII has a cool one though nostalgia makes me pick FFVII's. But hmmmm.....favorite intros....I'd say MGS3, HL2, Uncharted 2, RE4 and CoD4. Though I doubt anything can ever top the opening to Donkey Kong Country. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Utter perfection.
Killzone 2 for me is 1# I bought Killzone 2 for the PS3, I thought the Introduction movie was easily the best intro movie, I've ever seen in this gen. ( visari pwnds in the intro)
"My people... sons and daughters of Helghan... this much, I vow: The history of these days will be written in blood. By crushing the armies of our enemy, by seizing the weapons they thought to turn against us, we were fighting for our very existence. But if there are those who would deny us peace, refuse us our rightful place in the universe, then we will unleash such terrible vengeance, that generations yet unborn will cry out in anguish!
The Killzone 2 intro was great, but not as good as the first Killzone intro, imo. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Freespace 2. Rise of Nations. Ocarina of Time. Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. Those games have my favorite intros. If I had to pick one from this generation, though... I don't know. Most intros lately have been pretty... dull. I'd probably say Valkyria Chronicles or Dragon Quest IX.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... ...They really don't make them like they used to. Intros or games. Really, considering how impressive FS2 is today, I'm pissed off that the genre died. Imagine what a Freespace game would be like with TODAY's technology! Best.Game.Ever.
Killzone 2 and FFVIII have two of the most epic openings of all time. Just sayin.
Loved Bioshock. The fact that it played a big part of the story makes it even better
Loved the Kingdom Hearts intro, #2 as well. The CG was great, and I loved the fact that they kept the same singer doing the song for both the English and Japanese versions, not changing it to a different song completely for the NA version (looks at FFXIII...).
How about Final Fantasy 3 (6) and Super Metroid for some 16 bit represent!

I have to say mine is SoulBlade....the music and score was amazing and it set the tone for the awesome game http://www.youtube.com/watc...
MGS 1 & 2
Chrono Cross Best intro music you'll ever hear
The God Of War series have the best intros.How could you not list even one of them ? Out of your list,my favorites include Arkham Asylum,Mass Effect 2,Uncharted 2 and Bioshock.
