What is your favorite intro sequence/cinematic for a video game?

It doesn't have to be XBox only, but in video games in general.

It could either be the intro cinematic or the cinematic when you do a New Game.

My top two would have to be Donkey Kong 64, the DK Rap

And the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles new game cinematic:

I love that song!

Anyway, how about you? What game intro do you love to see over and over again?

The tram sequence from Half-Life 1 is my favorite. It is pretty unique even to this day and was really cool back when the game came out. I mean holy crap......that game is almost 15 years old now!

When I was a kid, Soul Edge/Blade had a fantastic intro. The song was really catchy and the cinematic wasnt bad.

For now though, it's hard to really say. FF7 had a good intro scene, Though the intros from Fallout 3 and NV have Ron Perlman's awesome monologues. Oblivion also had Patrick Stewart, which can't go un-mentioned.

For raw cinematic appeal though, I honestly have no idea.

Also does anyone know if the song being used in this intro is a real world song or was it just composed for FFX?

My favorite "new game" intros used to be the GTA series.

Now it's Destiny :)

Well on the soundtrack the theme is just called "Zanarkand" so I think it's an original composition.
