Top 10 Worst Video Game Intros

Deadly Premonition

 Deadly Premonition is a survival horror game developed by Access Games and published by List for the Xbox 360, the Playstation 3 and Microsoft Windows. The game is set in the rural American town of Greenvale, Washington where FBI agent Francis York who is investigating the murder of an 18-year-old girl. The game is not the best game in terms of graphics, story or combat and horror for that matter however it is a bit of a hidden gem due to its humor and awesome characters but the introductory mission is just a pure mess. You find yourself running around a corridor like an area with small expanded areas all surrounded by this annoying picket fence that you could easily jump over but the game doesn’t let you.

Pocket Racers

Pocket Racers is a racing game based on the back then popular toy franchise of the same name, the game was released in 2006 for the PSP console. It was not a game that sold well and it had a lot of random moments, one of those moments was the intro. In the intro you are partying with your friends in a mansion when a wizard randomly turns up and steals all your cars using a big magnet, and so the game begins. Furthermore, there is zero dialogue in the game, the music in the intro also sounds like some non-copyright sounds techno music and the visuals even for the year 2006 are just terrible.

Okami is an action-adventure video game developed by Clover Studios and published by Capcom for the Playstation 2 and the Wii in 2006, the game combines Japanese myths and folklore with the exciting plot of a simple woodcutter called Okami Amaterasu on his quest to fight against the evil curse known as Orochi that is cursing his land. The game is great, but the intro is just mind boggling, it is essentially 20 minutes of dialogue that sets just part of the massive story.

Warhawk (1995)

Warhawk released as AirAssault in Japan is a futuristic arcade-style flight combat game released in 1995, it was developed by SingleTrac and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game was published at a time where video game graphics were not good which led to developers using images of people on the covers and also motion picture films for cutscenes, the problems with the cutscenes especially is that it needed for the actors to wear costumes which made for very cringey scenes which is exactly what happened in the intro motion picture in Warhawk.


Undertale is a role-playing video game created by American video game developer and composer Toby Fox, in the game you control a human character who has fallen in an underground world separated by a magical barrier known as Undertale. The game is great and has an interesting unique concept where you can interact with all characters in the game with you being the only human which allows you to create a connection with characters that you wouldn’t usually develop a relationship or feelings to in a video game. The game received a lot of 10/10 reviews but it was criticized for its boring intro mission where you have to zig-zag through this platformer tunnel like the environment and complete tons of puzzles for no real reason.

Metal Gear Solid V

Metal Gear Solid V was a great game in the series and maybe the last good game in the series now that Hideo Kojima is gone and Konami is fully in charge. The first mission of the game was a confusing flop where you found yourself as Snake crawling around a hospital for a good 45 minutes to an hour which petrified many fans at the prospect of a continuation of this weird gameplay mechanics for an action-adventure a game. However, thankfully things picked up pretty quickly after as you escaped the annoying hospital on your trusty horse while being chased by a horde of enemies.

Savage Skies

Savage Skies is a combat flight simulator video game developed by iRock Interactive and published by BAM! Entertainment, the player is allowed to choose between three factions of mythical creatures. The game gained media attention for having Ozzy Osborne in it, however, the deal fell through and the game meaning that the developers had to do a last mini scramble to re-do parts of the game and it seems that Ozzy Osborne was planned to have a big part in the intro which was a total mess. The intro was narrated by some weird narrator whose voice had an awkward echo for some reason which ruined the ‘epic’ feel they were aiming for plus the intro was very long for no real reason thanks to super long fighting sequences of characters that the player knew nothing about.

Fallout 2

Back in the day that Fallout 2 was still not in 3D, in the initial introductory level known as Temple of Trials you are allowed to create a character but the problem is that to complete the introductory level which is compulsory you need a character that has the base melee skills but no one tells you this and many people found themselves dying over and over again until they figured out the problem, it is definitely one of the worst if not the worst video game intros in the Fallout series so far.

Wolfenstein: The New Order

Wolfenstein: The New Order is an action-adventure first-person shooter developed by Machine Games and published by Bethesda Softworks for the Xbox 360, Playstation 2 and Microsoft Windows plus later for the new gen consoles. Many people criticized the intro and the introductory level of the game for giving a very boring generic shooter which Wolfenstein: The New Order’s predecessor was criticized for.

Driver is an action-adventure video game developed by Reflections Interactive and published by GT Interactive Software for the PlayStation. The games introductory tutorial is simply so bad that its literally a meme, the tutorial is just so hard that it takes most people a couple of tries at least to finish just the tutorial with the rest of the game not being as hard which makes simply no sense and deserves to be on this list of Top 11 Worst Video Game Intros.
