The Playstation’s Top 7 Opening FMVs

Final Fantasy VII

From the moment Final Fantasy VII’s timeless opening cinematic pans from the distant cosmos to the dingy alleys of Sector 7 and the game’s signature sacrificial lamb and part-time heroine Aeris, everyone who tossed this disc in their Playstation knew they were in for something special. Squaresoft’s cinematic tour of the dystopian metropolis of Midgar will forever be remembered not only for its being the gateway to pulling millions of gamers into the nearly 100 hour quest, but also for its seamless integration of FMV and in-game assets that worked to pull you into this 1997 fantasy epic.
