    Default Best Game Beginning/Endings

    So, what games do you all think have the best/coolest/most impressive intros and endings?

    Here are a few of my favs:

    Intros--

    Parasite Eve - Very engrossing, pulls you in to the story right from the beginning, and a killer music score as well.

    Captain Quazar - A Rap video for a video game intro is just TOO cool!

    Endings--

    Final Fantasy III - I think its 3, it had liek a 35 minute ending that is just kick-ass

    I like Tron 2.0's ending. That three-headed...whoops. Don't want to give it away.
    You are startled by a grim snarl. Before you, you see 1 Red dragon. Will your stalwart band choose to (F)ight or (R)un?

    Radiant Silvergun's ending was great as it was both sad and happy at the same time.

    I thought the ending to Cyber-Lip for Neo-Geo was very cool. Completey unexpected.

    Chrono Cross' intro movie is far better than the actual game.

    I've also always had a soft spot for the beginning of FFVII. The little mood-setting movie, then the sudden disembarkment from the train and infiltration into the Mako factory...very well done.

    Wild ARMs had a wonderful intro movie. Great song too.

    I kinda like Pac-Man. Quick song, the word READY! and then it cuts the crap and lets you play the game.

    OK, OK, seriously, I have a real live nomination this time around. I thought the intro to PS1 Space Invaders by Activision was pretty darn spiffy.

    Ridge Racer Type 4 is my favorite game intro. Right around then and for about a year before hand, having an awesome intro to PS1 games was almost essential.

    It's kinda dumb. Oh well.

    Actually, the ending to SNK's Search and Rescue is kinda like that. Silly.

    OMG ALIENS R INVAED STUFF kthx now let's have some tea and biscuits.

    Let's see...SNK game...zombies and wierd shit...nhilistic ending (haven't seen Beast Busters' ending yet)...oh yeah :)

    Speaking of intros, though...one of my favorites is SAR's :)

    The end of Halo Legendary is the hardest I've ever laughed at a game. It gets my nomination for that moment it holds.

    I'll second FF8 for an amazing intro. Shame that, for me at least, the game didn't hold up to it.

    My favorite intro was FF3(6j). It was played out the way a film would be, and back then I thought that was just the coolest thing.
    My favorite ending has to be Soul Blazer. I really loved going back to see how all the creatures get on after you left them. I alos loved the very very end with you and Lisa and Turbo.
    That was one of the few endings where I truly felt satisfied.

    The Onimusha games have excellent intros. I haven't played the third game yet but I am betting the intro is nice.
