Since I had not played Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater until recently, I had also not seen its introductory credits sequence and accompanying movie.
How? I ask you. How had I not seen this?
This song, performed by Cynthia Harrell, was a classic almost from the moment the game was released. When the song plays in the game itself, that's when MGS3 really "begins," as far as I'm concerned.
Can we please get more Bond-style, stylish-to-the-point-of-funny introductions for games? Can more games have epic torch-songs during their opening credits? Enough with the low-key credits sequences. Give me a good theme song, man!
