I love when the dreary music starts building up as you see the ship approaching Liberty City, then at the climax you see the sky scrapers of Algonquin while 'GTA IV' appears on the screen. You just know that alot of great things are about to happen. I also love the serious and depressing atmosphere and how the intro sets the dark tone for the rest of the game.The whole sequence is just beautiful and gives me goosebumps everytime. Its much better than V's 'Welcome to Los Santos' intro

V´s intro is very well done, it´s fitting in. Remember, it represents SoCal. I really like the part when Michael says to the hobo "I know just how you feel..." 

 

But I agree, IV´s intro is the best intro of a GTA game so far, it matches the atmosphere of the whole game perfectly.

I have to say that I easily recall the opening to GTA IV and how the music sounds even though it was almost 6 years ago. However with GTA V I dont. For me the opening to GTA IV was very special and a great way to start the game especially with the music it had. Although for me its the second best opening behind GTA VC.

VC Intro was also a classic, SA had the worst intro

SA opening intro wasn't great but I dont think it was the worst. I'd say either LCS or VCS had the worst opening.

You summed it up quite well. The introduction for GTA IV was just pure brilliance. Everything about it was right on key from beginning to end. That shot of the game logo with the skyscrapers in the background still blows me away. I'm not sure how they went so wrong with V's intro, but it probably has something to do with the lack of Michael Hunter.

IV's intro is good, but Vice City has the best one IMO. I love the LCS intro as well.

V's intro seems like it should have been reserved for the ending credits. It doesn't pump me up for the game like IV's did

It was one of the best introductions the GTA series has had, but the best intro in a game would be in Red Dead Redemptions, it kinda looks like the one in IV.

 

 

By the way: I just started another playthrough of IV, any ideas?

I liked the San Andreas and Vice City openings.

Talking about the intro, seems like the RDR intro is somewhat based in IVs: there's a ship and a car being lifted out of it.
