FS1 Intro.
Bastion Video.
FS1 Ending.
In that order.

I love the FS2 intro, probably because it's my earliest memory of Freespace.
Trendy Lefty. Good music from a good friend of mine.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Shouldn't this be a poll?

Oh, the Intro cutscenes rule. :)

 
I am always impressed by the Bosch monologues and the FS2 intro.

FS1 intro, Hallfight, and FS1 end game would have to be my favorite. The FS2 cut-scenes definitely went down a few flights of stairs in quality.

They did have the advantage of the superb Bosch Monologues, as opposed to the dreadful Ancients cutscenes. The Ancients were apparently bad at grammar.

 
I doesn't concur!

It is pretty hard to learn a new language when you're being wiped out. :p

Same here.

On the other hand, the Bosch Monologues were rather pretentious even as Bosch admits things are NOT AS PLANNED and beyond his control, and the Ancient's Monologues had the proper tone.

Just sayin'.

I loved those Bosch Monologues. He was a thoughtful man, the character who held the game together.

What was the proper tone in the Ancient ones? Irritated disbelief that anyone could put together sentences this bad and still get paid for it?

Random and barely on-topic:

Anyone ever noticed that those Myrmidons in the Bastion-explodey cutscene aren't even textured?

To be honest, I don't get the point of this criticism.

Sure, Bosch's monologues were epic, but that doesn't mean the Ancient monologues were bad.

I don't get the appeal of the Bastion dies cutscene. It's sterile.
