When it comes to western developers, Command Conquer Generals's intro wins imo (close call with System Shock 1's though)



Japanese intros? Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many. Though KoF97's always holds a special place in my heart. The music, the radio voice, the story bits presented in it. Everything fit perfectly.

To me, the most impressive intro is still Alternate Reality: The City.
The extremely limited capabilities of an Atari 800, and then creating this just shows how much you can do, if you know how to use it. I think the main thing here is the careful syncing of the music with what is happening on screen. The C64 intro for the same game is completely lame, because it lacks that synchronicity.

Capcom's Onimusha stuff is legendary.





Where's my next Onimusha game?

Full Throttle has a quite tasty intro



Also, I don't know about the best video game intro, but I definitely know the best video game ending video:

Some of the Amiga SHMUPS had the best intros. Although the visuals are a bit tame compared to some of the other stuff already posted, the music makes up for it.





talking about the best intro music... again, the visuals are pretty understated, but damn they don't make music like this anymore.
