    I really wished I saw a Jake or Ratchet and clank or Sly Cooper screenshot

    I feel like the first screen from the very first Legend of Zelda should be on this list. It drops you into the world with 3 directions to go into, and yet that ominous cave that everyone went into and found the sword because it was adventurous, not because of on screen text or a big flashing arrow. But thats just the thing, you CAN beat the whole game without ever going into that cave, and every time you load your save game you start in the exact same spot, but with an ever growing health bar and items list. I love that start screen.

    I second ObliqueZombie; Tomb Raider is one of the most iconic games ever and the first screen will forever be embedded in my head. It should have been on this list, or at least Tomb Raider II which was even more popular.

    I'm surprised there's no PS1 Tomb Raider. Hell, even my mom knows who Lara Croft is, even before that damned movie.

    I find it funny how several of this screenshots are from what looks like the MC just waking up. I think the Megaman X series has the best first moments.

    I thought this was going to be the first screenshots of games before they were released compared to how they looked when they were a finished product.

    --its is sorta strange --how --when mario went 3d --it not only evolved the franchise into the future --it helped evolve the ENTIRE gaming industry into the future --but --when sonic went 3d --it made NO sense(it was REALLY bad) --and --it was 'basically' the END of Sega itself

    This should be first playable screens, lots of these are definitely not the first thing you see as you start the game.

    Actually stopping your jokes and slapping yourself was gold XD

    It's like video games didn't exist before the NES. How about this one? http://www.videogameobsession.com/videogame/atari2600/2600_screen_Combat.gif

    The Last of Us caption kind of hurt.

    If I'm remembering this clearly, Final Fantasy VIII would definitely deserve the caption 'Hot for Teacher'...
