I'd have to say God of war 3. Fighting parts of Poseidon before actually battling him was Epic!

Oh man just off the top of my head; FFVII, LoZ:OoT, Uncharted 2, BioShock, Fallout 3, GoW3, Metroid Prime, Mass Effect 2, Super Metroid, Castlevania SoT, New GoW, Batman Arkham Asylum, Halo 3. The opening scenes/levels to these games did such a great job of setting the tone for much of the rest of the game.

Especially Mass Effect 2 when Shepherd gets spaced. That was friggin epic.

Much better than the list on the site.

Every time I see a ''best of all time'' list, I actually expect them to have played more games.

GOD OF WAR 3.... The intro recap of the entire story to that point and the first level was amazing!

No Uncharted 2 train?
No MGS2 tanker?
No COD4 ship escape?
