Best Game Intros

As the title suggests, this isn't really a serious thread.

Game intro's are a very important part of a gamer's experience. They basically shape the rest of the game, if you've never played it before, and many games can be well promoted based on their intros.

So, let's post our favourite ones!

My vote goes to Soul Blade!

0m 20secs to 0m 25secs is good:
YouTube - Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - Launch Trailer (HD)

Mostly just that flute thing combined with the engine hum and breathing.

Can only be Star Wars.

Warcraft 3. Blizzard does such an amazing job with the cinema cut scenes and such.

Wolfenstein coming soon

I don't know if any of you remember Return to Castle Wolfenstein or not, but id Software is finally releasing a sequel to this after 8 years!

This was the very first FPS I ever play off & online, so I'm looking forward to this newest release...

YouTube - Fallout 2 Intro Movie

Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

Give me a kiss before you leave me
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart
Leave me one thing before we part
A kiss to build a dream on

When Im alone with my fancies...Ill be with you
Weaving romances...making believe theyre true

Give me your lips for just a moment
And my imagination will make that moment live
Give me what you alone can give
A kiss to build a dream on

(instrumental break)

When Im alone with my fancies...Ill be with you
Weaving romances...making believe theyre true

Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Ah sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on





Yup FO2

Its older but I've always loved the Far Cry intro. Its very cinematic for a 2004 game.
