Yes i was amazed at the start of the story, how you can play the little girl in the house screaming for dad or looking around in the back of the car was just amazing. It felt like i was playing threw a movie, ive only cried like 2-3 times ever watching a movie never on a video game and man was i close, might as well just say i was crying cause the eyes were waterd up, lol. Really gives you a feel for the charecters cant wait to play the rest of the game.

I shouldn't have read to much before playing.. People were saying "OMG WOW PREPARE TO BLOWN AWAY WITH THE INTRO.".. So I had pretty high hopes for it, and It was great don't get me wrong but I was pretty underwhelmed.. I really should have not read too much before I played, kind of ruining the experience... I'm like waiting for a WOW moment, and It's happening all around me.

Well in fact i'm always trying not reading anything about the game, before i play it, cuz it's really bad for your first contact with a game, The best feelings are when you doing totaly fresh start.

Trying not to spoil here so skip if you have not been past the opening segment just in case..

 

I got a little teary eyed. Didnt cry per say but about as close as you can get and yes I had to hold it back. I could have cried no doubt and that has NEVER happened in a game.

 

Masterful move there. Let you play her for a moment to develope an attachment to the character then.. Well you know. I don't think a game has ever made me feel like that. Heavy Rain had some really good emotional moments but no where close to this and to have that happen to you in the 1st ten minutes of game play ?!?! Wow ! How do they do that ? You would expect that you would need to get to know the characters a little bit more before you would have that reaction. Maybe being older and thinking about people that I know that have felt that kind of thing in real life had a little to do with it but still.... It's a game ! The line between a game a really good film just got a little blurrier.


So to answer the question of best opening ever.. Yes, beyond any doubt this game has the best opening ever and I have started over 3 times now and turned up to hard because I feared it would end to quickly. It is freaking brutal on hard but even more satisfiying and more realistic the harder the difficulty. I have never started over on a game 3 times and turned up the challenge just to make sure it would take as long as possible to get through. I just cleared the building with the 1st clicker encounter and I am thinking of starting over again on max difficulty. No I am not sadistic.

I'm not ashamed to admit I teared up at the end of the opening chapter.

 

The next day, I pleaded for my brother to start the story mode, or at least play JUST the opening first (he was too engorsed in the MP at the time.) I told him the opening alone deserved GOTY. lol

 

He finally played it...He agreed.

 

Nice game to release on Father's Day weekend, ND. Smiley Wink
