Young gamers are spoiled, when i was playing games growing there wasn't even instant replay. I'm still amazed at how a game will instantly queue up a replay seconds after it just happened.

I think cutscences are a must in sports games, it adds to the atmosphere and overall feel of the game. Just yesterday Jose Reyes (MLB 09) was called out at first on a close play then it skipped to a cutscene of him arguing with the ref, and I was just sitting there praying he doesnt get ejected (he did by the way). It just adds that little bit of realism that makes the game just that much better, now only if Madden had amazing cutscence of players jawing at eachother and getting hyped up I'd be set.

I don't mind the cut scenes as they do add a touch of realism when playing, and like you said, if you don't want to watch it, you can skip it by pressing the button. for MLB The Show, you can also select how much cut scenes/presentations to show in the options, which is nice.

Re: Are Cut-scenes Needed in Video Games?

Too many kids. Cut scenes are absolutely unnecessary. If the gameplay is strong enough, there would never be a need for a cut scene.

In many ways, cut scenes ruined sports games. I blame the kids that have no frickin' imagination and whine about things like uniforms, post game celebrations, and all other manner of crap that should be the last thing developers are worrying about.

"The little things" is code for, "Crap that kept developers from fixing glitches."

Yes I hate the cut scenes a lot but its something that I have had to get used to it i kind of wish they would do away with it but i know that i would be dreaming i think that the games are made to protect young kids cause the parents complain a though

Re: Are Cut-scenes Needed in Video Games?

I love cut scenes, it gives the game a realistic presentation, that gets the player more into the game. NFL 2K5 had the best presentation ever. College Hoops 2K8 also was great in presentation. Right now I'm playing NBA 2k9 and the presentation is really good, not great though. In 2K9 it shows replays from the whole game, after certain dead balls, or end or quarters it cuts away to what's been happening through out the game or recently. And at the end of the game you can choose to view every highlight for every player that happened in the game. The only thing I wish for would be a Weekly Recap show, like in College Hoops 2K8.

Once you see a cut scene, you can pretty much predict what the outcome will be, which damages the gameplay. I think cut scenes aren't needed, they're usually the same ones over and over.

Disagree. It depends on the game. The Show's cut scenes are NOT the same ones over and over.

And it does add more drama to the game if done right.

I overthrew first base from short with the Twins last night. the showed Ron Gardenhire yelling out onto the field at Nick Punto. And it was done well. I mean he looked p*ssed. (it was 2 outs by the way)

You take away cut scenes, you take the drama from the game. And thats boring, I don't care how great gameplay is.
