Most of the best video games grab your attention right from the start. They show you something amazing, or mysterious, or beautiful, and pull you in.
Yesterday, Gone Home developer Steve Gaynor made the bold proclamation that the intro to Fallout was the greatest video game intro of all time:
quick reminder of the greatest video game intro sequence of all time https://t.co/w2mCjBRN98

It's a strong entry, to be sure, but I'm not sure I'd say it's the BEST. That made me realise that I could ask you all what you think.
So, have at it: Which game has the best intro sequence? Post them below, with video embeds whenever possible. For our intents, let's be liberal with what an "intro sequence" is. Basically, it's how the game opens. It can be a cutscene or an interactive sequence - basically whatever happens when you first start the game.
If you see someone else has already entered your game, star it instead of making your own entry. Then, we'll count the stars and see who comes out on top.
