I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

11 Best Video Game Intros Of All Time

Posted on Sunday, March 3 @ 12:53:01 Eastern by Alex_Osborn



3. Mass Effect 2

How could I not mention a game in which the main character dies within the first few minutes of the experience? The beginning of Mass Effect 2 is all kinds of epic. You're introduced to the franchise's new antagonist, your ship gets blown to bits, and you go off hurtling into space with no chance of survival. The rest of your crew barely escapes and you're left wondering what happened to everyone. It was a great way to shake things up and introduce an exciting element of unpredictability, keeping the player always wondering and on their toes.




2. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Let's just get this out of the way right now. Every Metal Gear Solid intro is absolutely incredible; however, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is undoubtedly the best of the bunch. Not only does it showcase Snake performing a HALO jump in perfect dramatic fashion, but it also serves as the first time players get a chance to peer into the eyes of the one Big Boss. At the time, the gaming world was eager for a new Metal Gear game, and the prospect of venturing in the jungle seemed almost too good to be true. Thankfully, Kojima failed to disappoint.
