Okay, we’re going to start this list off with what very well be the greatest video game intro in history. A woman gets punched in the stomach, thrown over a shoulder, and taken off-screen. And while it’s brilliant in its simplicity—bad guy steal girlfriend. Me break bad guy’s face!—it’s also a pretty weak reason for a guy (And his brother!) to go off on adventure of beating up bad guys on the streets and in a cave to death. Hasn’t he ever heard of calling the police? No? Oh, ok, then carry on with your punching and jump kicks, fine sir.
