The Best Game Intro

I think the intro to the original Left 4 Dead has to rate as one of the best game intros I’ve ever seen. Great stuff.

Unfortunately when I play the game I can’t hear any sound. Bah.

Update! Someone mentioned on Twitter that Dead Island had a better intro. Strictly speaking, it’s a trailer but boy does it pull at your heart strings. F*cked up. Check it below but don’t click play if there are kids around. After you’ve watched the trailer, check out this IGN edit that plays the trailer in reverse.

  1. The L4D trailer is brilliant I have to say, reminds me a bit of Resident Evil with the big beastie but the Dead Island has left me totally disturbed. I don’t think I will ever sleep again, well definitely never let any of my kids run around hotel corridors that’s for sure 😉

    God that’s a powerful trailer!
