I GET KNOCKED DOWN

As cheesy as it is though, I can't look past the intro for the first Resident Evil

Good thing they included blood types for the characters. Wouldn't be Japanese without it.

Dune II in 1992 had the first (?) cinematic intro with longer voice acting I believe.

"The spice controls the empire"

Actually Dune beats that, came out in the same year






It's Final fantasy VIII

I love Dune (it was the second game I played through after SMB1), but I always hated that lengthy intro a bit, as it is so drawn out and quite spoiler-heavy to boot.

Spoiler!
You're not yet supposed to know anything about Chani, Kynes or Stilgar or that you will get called Mua'dib. Chani is a double whammy since you meet another girl first in the game, so seeing here there is also spoiling that the relationship with your first girl will end at some point, even more so since she doesn't appear in the intro at all. Also, seeing water and plants growing on Dune are huge spoilers for later in the game and anyone who hasn't read the later books. Also, one of the backgrounds in a trader's town, which are pretty well hidden and their existence will only get revealed halfway through the game.


Alpha Centauri.


Still one of my favorite TBS games.

Battlezone 2:


My favorite FPS RTS.

StarCraft: Brood Wars.


Makes me moist.

Can't think of many from the top of my head but Tekken 2 for sure:

Hmm, pie.

Final Fantasy VI/III (SNES, 1994)

Super Metroid (SNES, 1994)

Parasite Eve (PS1, 2000)

And finally, while I guess this is stretching "early 00s", The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GC, 2003)



This is my favorite one, only the overseas orchestral version, feel it fits the game the best compared to the japanese songs, captures the scale of the adventure that Symphonia is. 



Final Fantasy VIII

Final Fantasy X

Onimusha 3



When I read the title of this thread, Final Fantasy VII came to mind immediately.
