Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best game opening

edit: Assassin's Creed deserves a mention if it hasn't already.

Around the Network


Half-Life, Half-Life, Half-Life.

I can keep repeating it until you agree. I have time.

Best intro? hmmmm...

also, this is awesome. (can't get this to embed.)

Ninja Gaiden Shadow 


"You won't find Adobe here in Nairobi"


Kingdom Hearts I and II, the Nomura Team and Utada Hikaru nailed it.

Final Fantasy VIII, incredible opening, the promise line, the fight, the editing, the orchestrated composition, it was a first for the FF series.

Final Fantasy VII, so simple, yet i can't stop seeing it, the PS1 "Lego" version, the PS3 technical demo and the PSP secret ending of Crisis Core...

Megaman X4 intro, and Zero's intro, the anime scenes were fantastic

On the NES Ninja Gaiden III was awesome, Megaman 2 was so simple, and yet amazing,

I still occasionally watch the Kingdom Hearts II intro on Youtube. It was done flawlessly.

Second would have to be Infinite Undiscovery. Love it. AND the commercially with the Jefferson Airplane song was AMAZING.
