psls-retrospective

When people think about RPG’s they usually think about the great story lines, the unique characters or the fun combat and exploration.  But another thing that most RPG’s have in common is a great introduction.  A good introduction to a game is very important as it gives you a great intro into the environments, characters and if the song fits, can get a person pretty psyched to play a game, if they aren’t already. Listed below, and in no particular order are the 10 RPG Intro’s for the PlayStation 2.
