The Wizard led us to believe that 97 games was a lot to own. And perhaps it was when the film was released, but I know I have over 500 now. With all these sales, and our ever-expanding game libraries, a game needs to grab your attention quickly.
So what games have the best openings?
This topic came to mind because I bought Fallout 3 in the Steam sale and, gosh, I had forgotten how good the opening was. The prologue/tutorial is pretty good too, but the intro is so powerful. From where the old tube radio sputters to life and starts playing The Ink Spots, through the shot of the ruined city, and then Ron Perlman's "war never changes" speech, it just sets the tone of the game so well.
