Best opening sequence in a game?

#1MirageMew2Posted 12/5/2012 1:36:45 PM
I'm playing Far Cry 3 right now and I just got through the opening sequence where you're running through the jungle while the pirates are chasing you and I loved it. So now I'm thinking, what were other awesome opening scenes/sequences that just set the right tone that this game is going to be awesome? Mass Effect 3 also comes to mind, where the game opens up with the invading Reapers beginning to destroy cities.

You are so in the right!

Now thinking of something that I thought was a good opening, hmm...

Bioshock

My favourite will always be Bioshock because I didn't have a clue what it was about when I purchased it. When I 1st saw Rapture after the Andrew Ryan Introduction my jaw just dropped.

Assassins Creed II has a good one, climbing the church in florence with Ezio's brother and all.

And of course Mass Effect 2 is brilliant with the beginning. I would also list Arkham City in this as well.

Revenge of Shinobi and Ninja Gaiden 2 had good opening sequences
