Ah yes.... Goldeneye, Impossible to forget such a great game... This was the game that made me get a N64 :)

DarkBlood2515d ago

your telling me :P this was my first game i bought when i got the n64 lol

My favorite is God of War 3, without a doubt.

Climbing on mount Olympus on a Titans shoulder was the greatest thing i've ever seen. Little did i know, seconds later i was gonna kill the God of sea Poseidon after one hell of a bossfight.

Best opening of a game, ever.. period.

I still remember trading my copy of MK Sub-Zero Myth. on the N64 for Goldeneye with a friend. Probably THE best trade I have ever made in my life.

Amen to that! :D
I still remember the epic music that played during that first level: - Such a great way to start a game :)

The God Of War games and MGS2 boat level.

I was gonna say MGS. Truly the first cinematic game to my knowledge. The whole direction with the credits rolling were very innovative back then.

Took the words right out of my mouth. I'd never witnessed anything like it up to that time. Still to this day, I have never seen presentation innovation to the degree that MGS provided during its time.

oh yeah! hahaaha the Tanker level was absolutely amazing. Mgs3's opening level was amazing too, finding out the Boss 'betrayed' you was memorable too

Genghis2514d ago

I loved how that awesome credits sequence rolled after you beat the tanker in MGS2, then you're Raiden...for the rest of the damn game. Awesome.

Goldeneye 007 for the N64 had a great opening, and also God of War, starting on that ship ^^

Pikajew2515d ago

Golden Eye was one of the first games I played and I still remember the first level

gillri2515d ago

great picks there, all of them but ME2 reasonated with me the most, very emotional

Genghis2514d ago

Yeah, that's my favorite on the list. Honestly, I'm surprised Saints Row 2 isn't on the list.
