Half-Life of course

I played that 3 times in a row on my then brand new surround system before starting the game



Donkey Kong Country. I get the same feeling each time I start it up to this day.



I still got chills watching this just now. The best version I could find is this 360p IGN upload. The 480p version had a bit of judder, and the 720p version was even worse. It may be the blurriest, but it's at least accurately smooth. Dead Or Alive Ultimate. X-Box. 2004

And to keep with the low rez fighting game intro theme. Soul Blade. PS1. 1998.

I'm partial to Final Fantasy 10 myself. I just love that one.
