The O.G.’s supremacy still reigns. Despite the fact that game openings have mutated technologically, this haunting intro serves as proof that you don’t need retina-searing CGI and movie-director camera angles to make a huge impact on the player. The moment when Terra’s theme kicks in as the snow trek begins is one of the most memorable of all time. OF ALL TIME!
