“CINEMATIC GAMES SUCK”

Five months ago this was a hot topic and I felt inspired to voice my take on it. Hope you like, sorry it’s so late, more animation soon, hopefully.

All those sleepless nights of watching you work while sitting half naked in my own filth come to fruition.

Yo great vid, really love your content and glad to see a new upload B)

Im one of the dudes on the more gameplay focused side of game design, but im fine for the most part with cinematic games. My big issue with them though is how they can kill repeated playthroughs.
Half-life 2 is one of my favorite games of all time easily, but the unskippable sections of the characters dumping the plot on the player gets really old after the first time. I wanted to go through the game again bc of its fun gameplay and some of the cool secrets i didnt find on my first playthrough but then once ya get to Black Mesa East the game puts its foot down and tells me “woah there buckaroo its time to wait 6 minutes so that u can hear some exposition” and it kills the flow immediately.
Compare this to a game like Metroid, where the story telling is mostly diegetic, allowing the player to experience it at their own pace rather than being shown a cinematic. Because of this a first time player can go through and be spooked by the corpse of a dead soldier while a speedrunner can just blaze past it without a second thought. This sort of storytelling IMO is the best, but it does sacrifice the more controlled nature that a cutscene would offer, letting the writers make their point much clearer.

TL;DR Cinematics are alright as long as they can be skipped, having the game tell it’s story through the world instead of through cutscenes is better imo, and why the fuck it called walmart if they dont sell walls

Manuel Costa says:

Just realized u dindt talked about final fantasy xv, a game so on rails and cinematic that they sold a movie and an anime on the side, and still fils so freeing. I require a part 2 to talk about this, no animation required so it doesnt take a year to come out.

Damn ssoooonnn this is a lovely video! You did an excellent job on this one, and the effort in it really shows. Glad someone’s sticking up for this weird cinematic video game genre thing, as it has merit just like every other genre. Can’t wait for the next vid!
