There are soooo many. Here's a couple for now:

Geoff Crammond's F1GP
One of the first Amiga games that I bought. The guitar, drums, fast tempo and visuals wind you up to play. Showing F1 car stats, building up a car and using the BBC TV F1 theme tune (can't remember what it's called), I was desperate to get into my virtual car.

SOTB2
Ran this under emulation a few weeks back and it is still impressive (so is the 'game over' tune - but that's OT!)

Bart vs the Space Mutants
Shame about the game.

Chaos Engine
Simple slideshow; but great graphics and funky music

I think I'll be coming back to this topic...

Core Design had some great Intros too: Premiere, Wolf Child, Chuck Rock ... all brill intros...

It was SOTB 2.

I like the intro of JP2, codename robocod with the penguins and the music makes me feel like a little kid again.

Off the top of my head...

Shadow of the Beast 2
Another World
Birds of Prey
Beast 1 (simple, but effective and evocative )
Myth (also simple but worked well)
Jumping Jackson (excellent intro music! )
Gods (great music by Nation XII, I also liked the intro story that can be read if you don't press fire.)

The intro of Hostages was OK too.

Those are the ones I can remember...more to come!!!

I can see there are no RPG fans here.

My 2 favorite intros are from Chaos Strikes back and Eye of the Beholder II.

Beast 1 and 2
Armour Geddon
Killing game show

Even though it might not have said that much I really enjoyed the intro to Pinball Illusions. Good music and fairly well timed.

If I had to go for animation though I'd vote either Fury of the furries or Out of this world(another world)

Chaos engine (CD32 version) has a cool intro with some nice speech......but it lacks the nation xii music

Every psygnosis game intro was great......I always liked the "3d" nitro intro

@Doozy: Liberation CD32 speech is OK. Hammy, with bad accents, but it still adds to the atmosphere. Rather like Beneath a Steel Sky CD32.

Some intros not mentioned yet that are cool:

Virtual GP: pre-rendered spinning car
Roadkill CD32: pre-rendered cars smashing into each other
Sensi CD32: Very evocative music against a photo backdrop (Italy 1938 I believe)

I'd have to say Microcosm has the best intro. I highly recommend you download it from somewhere and watch it using WinUAE, it is simple brilliant.

Also Alien Breed: Tower Assualt for the CD32 is also very good IMO.
