The Longest Journey was the first one I thought of.

Also Legend of the Prophet. Remember that one?

And of course Myst - my first adventure game - little did I know where it would lead...

All of the aforementioned were wonderful, but it has to be (long pause, drum roll)...... Myst.

Still does it for me, after all these years.

The scenes I liked most were Black Dahlia, The Longest Journey and Rama, but I have to say that Amber: Journey Beyond and Zork Nemesis have some of the most exciting opening scenes.

I just reloaded Zork Nemesis.. and was totally swept away by the intro!! I don't think I watched it first time round, too excited about playing the game!!

TLJ is good too, as is Syberia!

I loved the intro to Broken Sword II, that mixture between todays Paris and ancient mayan was great.

It only comes to mind because I recently completed it (and BAAGED for $1.99 at the local Babbages) but the intro to The Ward was one of the best I have seen in ages. While the game got average reviews, I truly enjoyed this title despite the presence of multple slider puzzles, which I generally hate.

Even though the game got only mediocre or worse reviews I think the intro to Temujin was one of the best (thoroughly enjoyed the game BTW inspite of those reviews!)also Ripper, and Byzantine should be added as well as all mentioned previously.

Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Gaming New Year to All!!! thumbsup

The intro to "Heart of Darkness" was great. Unfortunately I got bored with all the arcade stuff in the game itself.

I wish I could remember the name, but I can't. There were several vampire games out 1 or 2 years ago, and one of them had an intro with the wagon carrying the vampire's coffin creaking through the winter forest. The hero, his wife and friend were watching from a vantage point. When they were ready to attack the vampire he nodded at the other guy and the next scene runs through the attack. It seemed so real, and really portrayed the atmosphere of waiting tension.

After all these years it's still the intro to Myst that I remember best. Second would be Discworld 2. smile
