Favorite Game Opening


Recommended Posts

As a child, my most favorite (or memorable) game opening was for Sonic the Hedgehog 3. My jaw was on the floor -- I was amazed at how fast the screen was moving and seeing Super Sonic fly across the water from the get-go. This was immediately followed by seeing Sonic's new foe: Knuckles. Being able to play a whole brand-new Sonic game and seeing all this action right from the start had me so anxious...


I can't think of any other opening that is etched this hard in my brain.

Do you mean opening cut scene or opening game play? :huh:


Cut scene: Robo-Pit 2 (PSX) - I dunno why... it just seemed so good to me...


Game play: Golden Sun (GBA) - First time I played it I found my self shaking when the Mt. Aleph boulder fell. :thumbsup1:

Starcraft: Kind of scarred me when I was a kid. Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War + Dark Crusade, Super Mario 64, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2, Twisted Metal: Black, and other that I forgot at the moment.
