15. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001)
Playable character twists and Russian composition comparisons notwithstanding, you could not give MGS fans a better payoff to 3 years of waiting and anticipation than this intro by Hollywood opening credit veteran Kyle Cooper and his then-studio, Imaginary Forces. There's a bit of a you-had-to-be-there element in appreciating the full impact of this intro the week MGS2 came out. You'll just have to take our word for it that for some of us, no sequel intro since has generated bigger goosebumps.
