Not sure if it is because the intro is that good or because people relate it to the awesome game it belongs to.
Hitman: Blood Money (especially after completing more and more missions)
I sadly can't find a video of it together.
Haven't seen anybody mention Skyrim, though. I like how simple it is and the music is awesome of course:
Basically this. But then I saw this video. What happened there? The background image looks a lot better in the Japanese version. Never knew they were different.
It's pretty great when after seeing the title screen countless times you actually unlock the level that's playing in the background.
Hard to jog my memory to think of them all, but I'll always have a soft spot for Super Mario World's title screen. The music and visuals were both so memorable.
Some seriously questionable choices in here. I don't even understand what's going on.
All 3 metroid prime games have incredible music, Corruption's title theme is fucking fantastic.
Batman AC was great as well.
So, so, SO good. Incredible intro, and one I hope they best when Prime 4 inevitably comes out.
Not just any soothing, low key tune. The first time I loaded up OoT, it gave me chills, because I grew up playing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMZ3w6mzUlw
Yeah, that one is great too. I think the reason I love OoT's though is because it's so damn classy. It doesn't need pomp or intricate design or anything but link riding across hyrule field to a soothing, low key tune. The title screen sums up perfectly why I still love OoT so much. It's all about riding off into an adventure that's bigger than it seems.
Hitman 2: Nothing special, but the orchestral music by Jesper Kyd in the title menu was perfect for setting up the mood for playing this game.
These surely aren't the greatest of all time, but the first that came to my mind.
The one from OoT is probably the most legendary for me.
Any of the Metroid games have amazing title screens and intros. Even Other M...
Metroid 2: Return of Samus
Hell yea. Or how you'd hear a werewolf howl as you start a level, letting you know what you're in for. Or the little toys in the mall sections throwing knives at you.
Man, what a classic. Was I the only one who thought this game was actually a bit frightening as a kid? Those damn chainsaw men and the huge baby...
I still love this game. The music and humor are just top-notch.
