11 Best Video Game Intros Of All Time

5. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Naughty Dog took the gaming world by storm when it launched Uncharted 2. The studio's ability to blend non-interactive cutscenes with unbelievable set piece moments was unprecedented. The opening train sequence you see above is the game's crowning achievement. Many other developers have tried to recapture Naughty Dog's magic, but very few have come close. There's no doubt that the team behind this game was composed of some incredible storytellers, and it really shows.




4. Kingdom Hearts

Fans of Squaresoft and Disney will find much to love about the opening of Kingdom Hearts. The gorgeous CG intro timed perfectly to the heart-pounding music has me well up with emotion every time I see it. The characters you'll come to know and love over the course of the game make their debut in expert fashion. If there's one thing Square knows how to do, it's creating incredible game intros.
