There was always something about the intro to space crusade that just got me right up for the game. you know..

the screen fading in to see the space marines in position, then the marine sergeant roaring defiance agasint his enemies and going full auto with his boltgun, with his brothers behind him following suit. i used to rest the game so I could see it over and over . There was very little animation, but the sound and image it protrayed still gets me a littel excited and fired up, LOL!

Shadow of the beast 2, weas stunning when I remember it. The digitized samples of the lightning, the baby crying. This was the first game I ever tried on teh amiga. I was gobsmacked.

The intros to any bitmap brothers games, the music was stunning. Gods and magic pockets for example.

The Cannon Fodder and SWOS theme song.

Syndicate.

Dune 2

And how can I forget the first time I saw an FMV based intro. Alien Breed tower Assault. the pre-rendered animation, the FMV itself *smacks face with excitement*. Shame that when you watch it now you can't help but fall over laughing at the piss poor acting.

"TOAST THOSE MOTHERS" LMAO!!!

too many to list really

True, it was nice. But two things. First of all, I could never figure out what the marine commander was actually saying. Was it just a roar of defiance? Was it "FIRE!" or was it something else?

Secondly, his shout was soooo loud, that it always scared me, as a kid.

Hey, come on...I was a kid!

Blood Money was the one that blew me away all that digitised singing and those rendered asteroids.

Anotherworld was the next game to really do that to me.

The problem with intros of a movie like nature, such as Another World, is that they have led onto terrible things such as the overuse of FMV interludes that we have today. I still have fond memories of all the old intros on the Amiga but they leave me cold now. If I want to play a game I'll play a game. If I want to watch animation, I'll watch a cartoon.
