Attract sequences

Recommended Posts

It seems I am in a minority: I absolutely love intros/attract sequences/trailers. When I get a new game, it's not the gameplay I'm most looking forward to when I first boot it up - it's the intros.

I think I have a bit of an obsession with this kind of thing. Sometimes I'll put in a DVD of one of my favourite films and just watch the title sequence (Aliens for example).

When I wasn't getting on with MGS2 Substance, I thought to myself "I can never actually sell this game, coz the trailer/intro at the start is just too damn good." I must have watched it about ten times.

Halo's attract is brilliant! That Warthog being flipped by the Cov Tank and landing upright - wicked :P

Also, Hitman Contracts wireframe gun thing at the start is seriously disturbing ;)

I was sure there were some intro sequences that I used to watch over and over when I was littler, but I couldn't remember what they were. Now I remember:

  • X-Wing
  • TIE Fighter
  • Day of the Tentacle
  • Mechwarrior 2 :angry:

Maybe it was because this was pre-CD-ROM (for me), and so they were amazing multimedia extravagances.

The two most impressive of recent times for me have been hitman contracts wireframe gun, for its sheer inventiveness and amazing use of sound, and pandorra tomorrow. If the PT attract was the trailer for a new movie they'd be queing around the block. Or at least i would. Around the block.
