It is an exciting moment, buddy, and one every gamer can remember because of the atmosphere and the FMV. At this time, the graphics are insane! The title's appearance on screen and the gloomy voice.

RESIDENT EVIL!

It is a great opening of a game.

I've held off saying Breath of the Wild for long enough.

The moment you step out of the first cave and Link runs up the hill as the camera soaks in that beautiful Kingdom is enough to warrant a place on this list, but I actually think the entire Great Plateau is worth including, as it might well be my favourite bit of the entire game. The greater need for potions and food. The sense of being entirely alone with nature.The fact that every fight really counts and feels scrappy and desperate. The way it acts like a perfectly honed microcosm of the entire game.

Of the four or five Zelda games with good introductions (in plenty of Zelda games, the intro is the worst part), BotW is arguably my favourite.

People are mentioning epic opening set pieces or cinematic beginnings and i'm mentioning the cheesy live action intronin Resident Evil....

You say that as if it's a bad thing.

Its only good because its fast to let you get going, it has yet to no soul or charm.

Totally disagree. It's the part of the game that feels most in tune with nature and survivalism, and therefore has a very distinct feel to me.

I almost wish the entire game was a bit more like the opening plateau, great as the rest is.
