7 Openings That Pump You Up for The Game

We usually don't give the deserving value to game openings. Today many games don't even have an opening sequence, which is a shame. Many games had incredible openings with some great music to go along, getting you all excited to play the game. Sure, some are not quite as good as their openings, but others show their qualities from the very start. Here are some of the most awesome opening sequences from games I have played, games like:

7. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Sure, Uncharted 3 does not have a proper opening sequence, but the song... Ah the song is awesome! It have this adventure vibe that set the mood right from the moment you pop up the disc!

6. Killzone 3

Killzone 3 have a proper cinematic, and an incredible orchestral piece to go along it. Again, it set the mood to who the Helghast are and what kind of problem you got yourself (that is a lie, it is all Rico's fault).

5. Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia

Ar Tonelico have some of the greatest songs in games ever. The game is not that good, but it have a charm to it that compensate its problems. And the opening completely show what the game is about, with some impressive vocal works.

4. Chrono Cross

This opening come from a time that Square, now Square-Enix, still knew how to do some impressive JRPGs. It reminds me of pirates and sailing and have those awesome work with violins and flute that is beyond awesome.

3. Soul Edge/Soul Blade

Damn, this is epic, despite the weird lyrics it have. It shows how much importance a good opening had at the  time, as a way to show off how cool every character is. Specially Taki.

2. Final Fantasy VIII

Final Fantasy VIII had everything to be on epic, unforgettable game. But it is probably one of the least remembered game in the Final Fantasy series. To me it is here that Square start losing its touch. But you would never guess it from this epic opening. It set everything to be even more epic than Final Fantasy VII, but it ended up being just a bunch of emo kids trying to score a date. At least, it is how I remember it.

1. Persona 3

This opening at first can be kinda weird. But it sets the tone about a game were you shoot yourself in the head to summon your 'inner demons' so well that this is probably the most perfect opening ever. And it come with one of the best game songs I ever listened!
