The Best Cinematics and Cutscenes in Gaming

Leviathyn.com | Powerful scenes that take our breath away or make our jaws drop are rare. They serve to add a dose of shock and awe and/or to bring interest back into a story. Writers have dazzled us throughout gaming’s history with tales of wonder and suspense but only few have captured that mystical feeling of a dramatically powerful shift. (Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Halo 2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, Xbox 360)

Great list but not sure how they missed this particular cut-scene from MGS4. (Canal)
Possibly one of the best i have ever seen.
Right up there with the FF8 intro IMO

Halo wars :3 the one with the 3 spartans and the arbiter is pretty awesome!

I feel like Killzone 2 should have been farther up the list. Not once did I ever skip that opening. Not only did it look amazing, but Visari's speech was rousing, as well.
