Top 10 Video Game Intros

It's hard to overstate the importance of a good beginning. The first five minutes of any video game must work especially hard to not only grab the attention of the audience, but also establish the game world in the minds of players in a way that makes sense. Sometimes this means introducing a gorgeous fantasy world through an opening cutscene or introducing the characters you'll be spending countless hours with through dialogue. At other times, this could mean simply introducing players to the basic mechanics of the game.

The story is too old to be commented.

Was really expecting a god of war game on the list doesnt matter if its the hydra,collosus or Poseidon but those games start with such a amazing intro. Portal 2 and borderlands should switch places. Bayonetta's intro should be kicked off for any god of war intro.

I agree with number 1 cant think of any other game for the spot.

i always wonder how the authors go about choosing the "top" of anything, there is so many other games out there with good intros

Legend of Dragoon does it right!
A prequel would be nice, fighting in the dragon campaign.

How about a list with games that aren't just from this gen? Honestly why are the most popular and well known games considered to have the best openings? Oh I dunno... Maybe since nobody actually plays anything else to know any better?.

Exactly what I was thinking. There is no way that the top 10 game intros of all time have come from just this gen. The title is misleading. IMO, Xenogears' intro was pretty bad-ass, albeit confusing (until you play through the game of course).
