What is the best game opening?

Final Fantasy X - Not the flashforward/back to the Zanarkand Ruins, but the actual opening cutscene from Zanarkand with the Blaitzball and Auron and Sin and Otherworld playing. From that moment, I knew the game would be awesome, and I wasn't disappointed.

The opening videos to the Mortal Kombat games on the last generation of consoles(Deadly Alliance excepted).
If you have a problem with potheads, throw your computer out the window right now. Why should you be able leech off the creativity of those you condemn?

Happy to see some Onimusha 3 votes. God why did that series even end?

As a huge fan of the series, I have to say that with how Capcom's been handling things, I'm kind of glad it ended...

For me it's between Onimusha 3, (It'd be Oni 2 if it weren't for that dumb theater part introducing the characters) and Nier; not the opening that plays when you boot the game, but the one that plays when you actually start the game:

Snow in Summer is one of the best tracks in the game and the way it builds up through the battle is amazing.
By the way I would warn anyone that is currently playing or that plans to play Nier not to follow that link, the recommended videos at the side have a spoiler in them.

I like games with anime style openings fine but they're just far too generic to be considered the best.

Dragpn Ball Z Boudikai 3 and Onimusha 3 are the correct choices.

Final Fantasy X! Seeing that opening made me buy a PS2. :)
