Lightbulb Which Amiga Games Had The Best Intros?

I'm testing out a video recording setup at the moment and thought I may as well do something worthwhile at the same time, so I'm keeping what I end up recording and uploading it.

What I'm looking for is recommendations on the games that had the best intros.

I didn't play all that many different games so I don't have many to go from off the top of my head.

So, your favourites or recommendations?

Lots of Psygnosis games is good place to start! One of my all time favs is Liberation : Captive 2 on the CD32, I guess the A1200 had the intro too but without the speech.

As Amigajay said, many Psygnosis games had great intros, SOTB2 was always a memorable one for me. I always liked the intro for The Settlers as well.
