Total Annihilation is still one of my all-time favourite RTS games. The music by Jeremy Soule, played by a 96-person symphony orchestra, is still the best game music ever, IMO.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

A few I recall.

Pretty good intro here, made great by the music:


Enjoyed this one, and the main music themes are not featured, but even better:

A little change of pace with two of my favorites


1. The intro to the 1st Mafia game from 2002, which used all in game graphics along with a memorable theme song.
It ended seamlessly with the opening cut scene to start the game.


A long as Panzer started with a TW game, here's my fave of the series

2. All CGA intro for Shogun II (2011) This one's in 1080p with a great mo-cap sword duel.


Cheers

I thought this was amazing back in the day but it's not aged too well...

Armored Core...mediocre games, but great intros.






The new Deus Ex has a pretty good one. The background video you can watch summing up the last game is good too. The intro:

Amen, and make it multi-platform, so we can have a PC version.

Excellent choice there, two among my favourites too! Mafia was extraordinary right from the intro.

I see a Mechwarrior mentioned already. This was my first PC game and its intro gave me goosebumps for ages. It still does.

So many great videos. Man Jane's Longbow and Rainbow 6 gave me the nostalgia fuzzies. I can almost feel and smell where I was in my mind which is weird I guess lol. Mafia also is exceptional. 2KCezch/Illusion Softworks always did a great job with that engine. Felt so organic and the music and sound details are second to none. I agree, we need a Red Dead Redemption pc port and a sequel. John Marston is now one of my favorite gaming characters. Here's a few:





adlab picked a good one. Not pc but these deserve notice. Always loved the opening mission intro. Snake Eater was also very good.

This is one of my favourites.



That Farrow bloke you executed today, are you sure he's dead?
Well I chopped his head off, that usually does the trick.
Yes, don't get clever with me Baldrick. I just thought you might have lopped off a leg or something by mistake.
No, the thing I chopped off had a nose.

EAW is still fairly long by today's standards but can you see ANYONE sitting through a three of four minute intro anymore?

I second this. The Mechwarrior 2 intro left a lasting impression on me.
