20 Best Gaming Cutscenes Ever

2. Fallout - War Never Changes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkBNKa2KXZE "War. War never changes." With those words, the incredible voice of Ron Perlman established gamers with the bittersweet world of the Fallout franchise. Instantly putting across the sombre yet tongue-in-cheek that the games are known for, this was a perfect introduction to the series.

1. Final Fantasy VII - Introduction

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5Y6Sza8Nt0 Those who didn't play Final Fantasy VII on release might not understand why this cutscene is so brilliant, thanks to the low poly count and muddy textures. However, the introduction of Aerith, the swoop out from the bustling city, and the zoom back in on the train station was unlike anything gamers had ever seen before. A fitting cutscene for such a legendary game, the introduction to Square's most popular RPG is enough to make most gamers weep with nostalgia. For its sheer iconic legacy, Final Fantasy VII easily tops off any list of the greatest ever gaming cutscenes. Do you have any fond memories of these cutscenes?
