Okay, so.. i am wondering what is the best intro you have ever seen?, it can be the starting cut scene, maybe the starting text, anything...

i have to say Super Mario Galaxy, for some reason i really enjoyed the first part of it, it was a short movie, and then you jumped right in to it.

Borderlands, also has an also awesome intro, well that's what i think anyways, i just love the sadness, but also the Badassnes.. eh, of the characters,

soo what do you think?

I think borderlands beginning was bland and tipical........shadow of collosis on the other hand really gave me the whole sence of the world, also dragon age origins was epic...i can't think of anything else right now though il post more when they come to mind.

Batman: Arkham Asylum had a great start to it. It was so freaking intense with the Joker mocking you as you wheel him through layers of security, catching glimpses of iconic supervillains from the Batman universe. And then of course, a little game called Bayonetta started with you and a buddy-witch battling giant-assed snakes and angels shooting crazy stuff at you... while decending at a free fall speed on top of a broken clock tower.

I loved the opening of Uncharted 2, it wasn't a cutscene as you were playing as drake throughout, it was more like an interactive cutscene. I loved it because it really gives you the feel of the harsh weather conditions and makes you wonder as to how he got there etc. I also like all the final fantasy opening cutscenes but my favourite has to be final fantasy 13 because it looked absolutely gorgeous on my 42" HD screen!

I've never seen anything as amazing as the first hour of God of War III in 15 years of gaming. The scale, the graphics, the music, the detail of the Titans, etc. Ares' tomb was an especially nice touch. And then the first person beating of a god complete with eye popping/gouging.

I like openings like MGS4. A little cutscene with some story going on and then bam smack dab in the middle of a warzone. It was cool.

I like Red Dead Redemption too....Like MGS4 with the film-like opening.

Killzone 2 has that pretty intense speech from Viscari which was pretty damn cool.

Also, the opening cutscene/narration from Prototype was awesome.

Clearly, Bioshock 1 is one of the best openings to any video game and will be forever.

I can never forget, the plane crashing as I swim up to the Lighthouse, and it's all history from there.

God of War III, most epic opening to any game I've ever seen hands down. Second would have to be Bayonetta, the free falling action scene made me look forward to the entire rest of the game.

OH YA uncharted 1, i consider the first couple chapters the opening because your not on the island yet, but even just the opening for the game i effin loved it!!!!

kyle_360
i personally thought the Uncharted 1 opening was pretty bad, all it did was show you how bad the oceanwater graphics were. It got much better as you got into the heart of the game.

Yeah i agree. I played the game after I saw all the comments on here how it was the graphics king of PS3 (in 2007 of course) and when i saw the water in the game it looked terrible. everything else looks gorgeous though.

Agree with Killzone, didn't enjoy opening of Killzone 2 though.
