Do cutscenes in MMORPGs annoy you?

Post by TheHidden01 on Tue Feb 16, 2016 7:52 pm

The last few months, Iíve been playing a lot of Diablo III, and last week I jumped into Devilian. One thing both games do that turns out to annoy me?


This is not a new problem, of course. Games like classic Guild Wars made heavy use of cinematics and cutscenes to propel the storyline through missions. A lot of you would probably argue that a story-driven MMORPG like Star Wars: The Old Republic is at its best when itís letting you talk your way through a cutscene!

And really, Diablo III and Devilian are doing the same thing, but I think I had forgotten how much they grate on my nerves when Iíve seen them over and over in a multiplayer game where invariably some people want to watch them and other people just want to get on with the killiní and lootiní. The worst offender has to be Diablo IIIís boss-fight cutaways. Ug!

How about you guys? Do cutscenes in MMORPGs annoy you, or are they one of the RPG holdovers you treasure?

"Let your character be your weapon, your fellow guild members be your armour, your blood thirst be your helmet, and use your boots to make a stand. After every battle allow your shield to be your faith in one another, and return from battle either carrying it or resting upon it."

don't really mind cutscenes if they don't really interrupt too much like constantly popping up some bullshit.
