Granted that FS1 and FS2 weren't designed as cutscene-heavy games, meant more to create an atmosphere of believabilty or lore rather than tell the story of the games, but out of both FS games, what was your favorite/most memorable cutscene?

For me, I would have to say the opening cinematic from FS1.  First time I saw it I was like, "Oh s**t.  We're screwed."  No other cutscene, at least to me, had the same energy and realism to it.

Thoughts?

I would have to agree with GB on that one.
I, Aries one, have proved myself superior to the legendary Terran pilot Alpha one! Let the Vasudan people take pride in this accomplishment, and take the Parliamentary Vasudan Empire to victory over the inferior Galactic Terran Alliance! Long live the Emperor!

The supernova one looked and sounded weird to me. The ships looked like plastic and the weapons sounded funey, especially the beams... But the supernova was uber cool.

The supernova just seemed unrealistic. I know it was comprised of about 99% RuleofCoolium, but real supernovas are even more impressive...

My favorite would have to be Hallfight, followed closely by FS1's Endgame.

FS1 intro, Colossus tech, Bastion self-destruct.

Farewell to the ship we once served on and all the salutes, even if it was in a "breaking the 4th wall" sense... (again, lack of a better phrase... :doubt:)

Who knows what happened to Adm Shima anyway. OTOH FS1 intro was a case of total freakout on the first view... with that kind of music I do think it was enough of a horror film to scare some teenagers back in the day :nervous:

Hallfight has always been my favorite... But I have developed a new love for FS1 intro as I have studied it to prepare for the remake.

FS1 intro seldom fails to send chills down my spine. But seeing a Shivan for the first time in Hallfight was freaky too.

But, to avoid nostalgia-induced blindness, the FS2 closing cutscene was (and still is) freaking amazing.

However, since this thread is about a single favorite cutscene, I'd say if somebody put a gun to my head and told me to choose one, I'd go with the FS1 intro.

Ridiculous, the Director's Cut

For me it would def be teh FS1 intro, that has always sent a chill down my spine that eriee music ooh, infact thw whole of fs1 seemed to do that as to me it was a much darker story compared to fs2. I loved hall fight good action and the shivans amazing.  FS2 cutscenes for me were a let down, in terms of quality, compared to fs1 they just seemed very rushed and looked if they made at the last minute. However i do like Admiral Petrachs speech at the end if the player dis-obeys orders and choose's to say in capella and gets killed, compared to the one if you survive, i don't know what it is but i just really love the ending were the player dies, its got more emotion to it.

if there is any consistancy with the Shivans, it's their lack of consistancy - -Norbert-
