Ony of my favorite is from Parasite Eve 2 when Aya wakes up from the cartoons playing loudly on her TV in the hotel room and the beautiful shower scene that followed afterward. I think that was absolutely sweet!!!
I also love the opening sequence from Resident Evil:Code Veronica where Claire is running her a$$ off and does that bad a$$ manuever where she blows the gas tanks.

Most of all my favorite cut scenes are from either

Resident Evil 2 and Code Veronica
Silent Hill
and both Parasite Eve games(some of the best!!!)

I've enjoyed all the ones by Bungie -- mainly Myth 1 and 2 -- where they actually used animation for their cutscenes, and did a pretty good job too.

Also, the Starcraft ones really kick ass. The second vid on the zerg campaign where the marines come in to detonate the space station is such a great "Aliens" tribute. All the characters have their own little details too -- tatoos, stencils on suits, etc. I'll probably get around to reinstalling SC and playing it through all the way again just to see the scenes (translation: install it and cheat my way through every level in 5 min so I can watch some funky vids).

Lastly I just wanted to mention the funky scripts a bunch of games have started using since Halflife came out - which give you the feel of actually being in the middle of a scene or event -- as things start happening around you -- ie, monsters bust out, room starts sinking and you have to escape, etc.

Silent Hill, and the scenes in FF7 were always memorable for some reason.

Gotta side with Starcraft on this one - esp the one that ends the single-player campaign...

(should there be spoiler tags on this thread?)

I have to agree with the death of Aeris in FF7.

The cutscenes in FFIX are amazing.
I am just about done with the 3rd disc and each cutscene blows me away.
I even went out and purchased a cd off ebay that had music on one cd and all the cutscenes on the 2nd vcd.
