Same here.
Even with HR Celebrations cam off you still know immediately (watching the runners windows. Running or walking.) if it's gonna be a homer or not.

nhl 2k9 has the same system as the mlb series and it really helps the presentation. i don't know why it wasn't hyped at all but it is there. it does add to the realism. you watch the players skate off and on the goalie hand the puck to the ref and in the next scene the players are finishing what you just saw them doing. is right there.

i don't own mlb 2k9 but mlb 2k8 cut scenes, which i am still playing, don't feel as cool as they did last season. in fact, when i play other games now, all the cut scenes feel more canned but i want them all there.

Re: Are Cut-scenes Needed in Video Games?

I wonder if it would be possible to release a patch that would update certain phrases used and actual overlays just to mix it up and keep it fresh.

You would have an initial amount in the database but only put so many in the game at launch and then make more available on DLC. I'm sure it's possible as they are doing this now with in game advertisements.

I vote for cut scenes staying. I think a sports game would be boring without the extras.

But they have to have a lot so they stay fresh, like The Show. You never know what you'll see.

DaveDQ,

I was thinking the same thing. Hopefully they add some cut scenes to the PSN store.

I think cutscenes are an integral part of any video game but it's the quality of the cutscene that seperates the good from the great.

Re: Are Cut-scenes Needed in Video Games?

An idea I think would be fun is to allow you to edit the commentary. If you can replace entrance music, and have specific files played when a certain thing happens (ie first down), you could set it up so that the user could set up his own .mp3 file for a specific action. that'd be fun.
