So, far I've been reading this thread and thinking that I can think
of any game intro movie that I found all that interesting. However,
mentioning Ultima reminded me of how cool I though the title sequences
were in those games. They don't make them like that anymore.
If I recall correctly, Ultima IV had a series of static screens with prose
descriptions that led to the fortune teller character generation segment.
Ultima V actually presented the opening sequence using the game engine,
where a Moongate opened in your bedroom in the real world and beckoned you
into Sosaria to visit Iolo. So more than a flashy title sequence, but
something less than a real intro movie.
I find myself wishing that more titles would use the actual game engine to
renderc cutscenes like this. Even now, pre-rendered FMV is jarringly
different from the actual game footage.
