I thought it would be nice to know which Game Intro Sequence is the one that impacted you the most. the one that made you instantly fall for the game :D

one of my favourites for some reason is Resident Evil: Code Veronica


and Skies of arcadia... there were something about that upbeat way of the game that made me just love it... and i hate Jrpgs :S

It's easy to say Call Of Duty 4, but I'm going to say Dead Space.  That intro is visually stunning and drags you right into this beautiful atmosphere right away.  I still have a massive boner for that game.

World of Warcraft and FFXI come to mind.  Since those games have such epic opening screens.  But I suppose you mean "real" games.

Metal Gear Solid with the "Do do do" song over the Konami logo, always pulls me in.  The way the game jumps right into the story.

Final Fantasy VIII has an intro that is so obscenely epic that it's impossible to understand what the hell is going on when you first watch it.

More recently, Bioshock gets my praise as well as The Darkness, Call of Duty 4, and Mass Effect.

Ditto on Mass Effect. The first time I played that game it gave me goosebumbs, the music is really what makes the intro special.
Also "Point Insertion" is the what I would consider the intro to Half Life 2. Totally sucked me in within the first 10 seconds.

Now, do you mean the little movie that plays before you hit "Start" or do you mean the first few minutes of the game?  Anyway, besides the ones previously mentioned above, I got hooked on the cartoon opening of the PS2 game SkyGunner [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZerrPE-N-MU].  The game is pretty good as well, although not ground breaking.

But in recent memory, the opening to Devil May Cry 4 impressed me the most.  After I saw it, I went "Wow!".

I'd have to go with MGS2 and Persona 4. MGS2's lets the player know right off the bat that it's going to be one hell of a game, and Persona 4's is mad stylish.

The original Soul Blade was pretty amazing, and stands out in my mind.  Nostalgia might be kicking in a bit, but I'd also say that Final Fantasy VII's intro was really good too.

  • Metal Gear Solid Intro Movie
  • Occarina of Time Start Screen (I've turned my N64 on just to watch that intro at times)
  • Wind Waker Start Screen (music puts me in the mood for that game every time)
  • Viewtiful Joe Intro (just a whole bunch of action pose stills with commanding voice over but I like it)
  • Street Fighter 4....just kidding...maybe.

Panzer Dragoon Saga's intro was aaaaaaawesome.
And Soul Blade's.
And A Link to the Past's.
And Panzer Dragoon Zwei's.

And of course, Half-Life's playable intro sequence.

Cool topic, nice to reminisce about things like this. =)

  • Metal Gear Solid 3 had an intro akin to some of the 007 movies and I still think its one of the better ones of the series (Havent played MGS4 yet though...).
  •  All of the Final Fantasy games (now) have great opening sequences which really make me feel like playing the games. I guess FFVIII's stands out the most.
  •  Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross had memorable openings too.

I'm sure there are lots of others, but these stand out as ones I remember the most.

Story in games doesnt really mean alot to me, its how the story is told that impresses me. The world needs to tell the story, take for example Ico, or Bioshock. The world you are playing in speaks volumes. The same can be said with Left 4 Dead and most valve games. You find the story in the world around you.

Super Metroid - Great music, super spooky atmosphere, great intro.

  



Shadow of the Colossus - Haunting, sad, and beautiful. The pan out showing the bridge just emphasizes the importance, and sacredness of the land you are entering. Beautiful.

  

 
I give a vote to Bioshock, the amazing light house, the bathysphere, the port with all the "delayed" signs. Andrew Ryans welcome. All beautiful.

edit: I dont know why it posted that twice?

This generation these in particular came to mind:

  

  

(there's also a second intro upon exiting the highlands)



  

so simply done, but awesome.  The purple cloud sequence which is also the intro is nice as well.

It completely slipped my mind, but my absolute favorite is the introduction to Full Throttle.  Man, that was badass.

Here's a link.

I think the best intro might be Half-Life or Half-Life 2 in my eyes. I might have to do a little more of reminiscing, but when I think of best intro, the Half-Life series was the first thing that popped in my head.

These ones, from the days when I was obsessed with JRPGs on the original PS, also have awesome music. The Suikoden one isn't visually interesting, but that song makes me all nostalgic.

Mass Effect has an awesome intro. But I might have to go with Bioshock, it was the intro that made me buy the game. I didn't enjoy the rest of the game as much.
