    KillZone 2 is probably number one in my Book, either that or MGS4 Movie like intro. Sonic Adventure's Intro was WAY better than that first one.

    am i the only person that thinks that fallout 3 deserved to be on that list?

    Top 5 intros and they made fun of each of them when they came up... am I missing something or aren't epic intros supposed to leave you praising them or speechless?

    None of those would've made my list, if I had to pick my 5 favorites (in no particular order)

    Descent: Freespace
    Left 4 Dead 1
    Warcraft 3
    Burnout 3: Takedown
    Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion

    Who came up with this? I mean sometimes I disagree with part of a list or feel that something was left out but this time I am just left wondering WTF?

    Here is mine, in no particular order. I;m sure that people will agree with at least one of these. You'll notice that these are all old games. I think that the newer games have dumped the cinematic intro in favor of intro levels.

    For me these are all games that made me push the reset button as soon as I saw the intro just because It had me so hyped up I wanted to watch it again before I dived into the game.



    Myth2: soulblighter

    FF12 (any FF really would have been better than anything on x-play's list)

    SplinterCell:Pandora Tomorrow.

    "Waahh, Final Fantasy, Waahh.."
    Look, you have YOUR top 5, and Xplay has theirs.
    They're Opinions. Deal with it.

    The fact that this list even MENTIONED Sonic CD won my approval. I've never played any of the rest of the games on this list. Did any of the other intros reflect how good/bad the games were?

    I'm not sure how FFVIII isn't on this list. That easily the best intro video ever, even though the game wasn't. Everyone knows this. This list sucks.

    This is HQ to any available units: we have mechs down at nav gamma.

    (For those that remember it. I am sure you'll agree.)

    Final Fantasy X deserves to be in the top five.

    Personally, I thought Borderlands should have been on there, but that's because I don't really like actiony intro movies. Actiony gameplay, thematic intros.

    I think the intro to Street Fighter IV is pretty awesome, definitely one of my favorites!

    I always thought that the MechWarrior 4: Vengeance logo was the best intro video of all time. As it was made by a movie production company and had all real actors. Its like the closest thing to a good video game movie. Its on Youtube if you search it.

    I thought the Nnja Gaiden 2 for the NES was prety memorable. I think the criteria should be any intro that makes you want to buy or play the game or at least one that complels you to watch it. A lot of the forementioned didn't spark my interest.
