The Often Overlooked Archives: Dungeon Keeper
Dungeon Keeper begins with a gruesome video intro of a hero passing by a town's pub and setting off towards the dungeons beneath a nearby ruined castle. The hero does well against the little goblin workers, but is quickly beheaded when he meets a Bile Demon after taking a little treasure for himself. This scene and it's wonderful music sets the tone for the game. The game then transitions into the first level, which holds the players hand and does a great job of introducing you to everything you'll need to know in order to make your dungeon the creepiest in the land. The narrator's voice really adds a lot to the atmosphere.
