My best openings in a video game include: "Final Fantasy VIII, Metal Gear Solid 3, Devil May Cry 3, BioShock 1, BioShock: Infinite, Final Fantasy X..."

You should check out Onimusha 3's opening if you haven't already, definitely one of the best in video game history.

The one where you had to walk around and basically watch a movie for 10 minutes before you get to do anything resembling gameplay?

Come on man

I know you might think it all comes down to opinion but the majority of "Top - Lists" on here, when it includes something FF related, is ALWAYS FF7...even if other FF games did something better then it.

We all know FF8 had a better opening.

It's that nostalgia love affair the industry has with VII. It wasn't a bad game, by any means, but I think it's too high up in the rankings, generally speaking.

VIII's opening was SO much better. The best in FF, and arguably one of the best in all of gaming. But because it's not VII, it gets the shaft.

And not that bad mother-shut yo mouth Shaft, either.

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and Omega Boost from the old PS1 days. Not to mention the original Silent Hill.

I really liked Ocarina of Time's opening.
