Found my old copy of FF8 yesterday after my exam and got the old PS1 out for good times!

The opening, Liberi Fatali, absolutely rules!

What other games have great openings?

It doesn't just have to be opening videos, it could just be the first hour of gameplay or so.

Others for me include:

x Metal Gear Solid 4 - "War...has changed..." After such a long wait, this really got you excited about what was to come.

x Abe's Oddessey - "Rupture faaaaaarrrrrmmmmmsssss...." What a game! Escaping Rupture Farms is imprinted in my childhood memories!

x Bioshock - What needs to be said really? "Would you kindly find yourself a crowbar or something?" Atlas FTW!

:awesome:

I thought LoZ: The Wind Waker had a good opening sequence, briefly describing the whole of Ocarina of Time. Being a big fan of OoT and having played it at the time of release (and for many years after), this sequence brought back a lot of memories.

Have that for the NES. Absolute classic!

If we are going back in time, for awesome music, it's Earthworm Jim 2 for me!

Bioshock is great, where your in the submarine pod and you can hear the creepy guy trying to rip it open:p: Might have to play that later. Few others include:

Lost Oddysey. Great opening sequence, good graphics and an awsome fight scene.

Left4Dead I thought was very nice, quite entertaining and really sets the tone of the game.

Oooh I have more!

x Mario Galaxy - Star festival. The music! Ripped straight from Mario Bros. 3.

x Goldeneye - Dam

x Streets of Rage 2! The music and the first level!

In fact, I could probably conclude that good music makes a good opening...

Unless you're playing on a crappy laptop and have all the settings turn down to minimum
