Bruce Straley, the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and The Last of Us co-director, praised Resident Evil 4 and called Shinji Mikami the “God of gameplay!”
My best opening fight is still the first Colossi in Shadow of the Colossus
What a way to grab your attention. The music and scale were just nuts, especially for a ps2.
The music was also epic!

That village fight was awesome! Mikami did a brilliant job with RE4.
Everything was going great until the chainsaw guy came out
It was so intense! The villagers just kept coming and coming. Nowhere felt safe because there were multiple entrances to every building. If you blocked a door, they would climb up ladders and come in the top floor windows. When you return to the village later on at night in the rain, I actually stopped playing for about a year because I was too afraid to continue, lol! Most of the time, the ominous music will start playing when an enemy spots you, so if there is silence, you know you’re safe. But at that part, the eerie music plays constantly, so you never know if an enemy is going to sneak up behind you! The lab with the regenerators was another terrifying part. God, that horrible wheezing sound they make. Still gives me chills. Not to mention when you shoot off their legs and think you’re safe with them lying there, only to have them lunge at you from the ground. *turns off GameCube* Nope, I’m out!
God of War has the best opening fight. And it sets up everything beautifully
That fight with the stranger before he's given his name is incredible. I got strong DBZ vibes from it lol
The original God of War with the hydra was holy crap!
After that boss fight I text my brother “I think god of war is going to be a masterpiece” lol
Yeah that fight between Kratos and The Stranger was just amazing. To see them redefine scale, and take the epic larger than life fights of the prior games and make such an Earth shaking fight like that speaks to their talent
hope youre talking about the original
Love the RE4 village intro. The atmosphere, the music, all the Spanish I didn’t understand, the chainsaw. Moving shelves to block doors. Jumping outta windows. Great tension. Mix of running, hiding, attacking. Beautiful misery. Loved it!
Indeed it is. People say that RE4 isn't a RE game but to me it kept the most important aspect of the original games: the creepy and tense atmosphere and the RE4 opening was one of the most intense fights I experienced in a video game.
4 released when I was about 11 years old, and I never really got over the tension that game gave me. It's still one of my favorite games, I'm 25 now and I still play through it at least once a year.
Resident Evil 3 and 4 remakes are gonna be epic.
I agree with you with Resident Evil 3 but does Resident Evil 4 really need a remake? didn't they release a remaster for RE4 a few years ago?
Yes and No They released a remaster a few years ago and nowadays they re-release it every 15 days or so
I would love to see a remake of RE4 with the new engine. I mean come on, RE4 has been remixed how many times? Why not? It would complete the series with respect to visual updates.
Agreed that opening in RE4 was awesome and one of the most memorable prologues in gaming.
The chainsaw dude scared the shit out of me the first five times I fought him. Didn’t know what to do cause he kept soaking up the bullets so I ran around the village and found some grenades and threw it at him till he died. Didn’t even know there was a shotgun until after I killed the chainsaw guy
I think GOW is best opening fight ever + Devil May Cry 3 pizza scene was awesome.
My best opening fight is still in bloodborne
I came out of that sweating and heart racing like I actually got into a fight lol man that game was the best.
I know right!!
not actually a fight, but Silent Hill opening where you go to the alleyway is the most memorable opening for me to date.
Yes. The camera view and the overpowering soundtrack. You really didn't want to go down there.
It’s up there for me, re4 had a really good intro.
I don't know about that, the first fight of God of War pretty damn epic.
So many good opening sequences, but one that really stinks with me was Doom (2016). That game really reinvented the series, and pumped some new life into an oversatursated genre. Doom and Titanfall 2 are the only fps campaigns I remember wanting to finish in the last few years.
Uncharted 4 and Resi 4 😍 .. two of my favourite games ever
Sorry but GOW3 owns that accolade by miles.
Resident Evil 4 was an revolutionary game.
I've been always thinking that The Last of Us is the modern Resident Evil should have been compared to 5, 6, and 7.
I'd say the first Dark Souls has the best opening fight.
I would choose the opening to either Bayonetta or Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
It's just me or i'm feeling like Bruce want's to get back to business lol
