I remember when I played Xenosaga, there were cutscenes that were like 45 minutes long. o.o The cutscenes in most final fantasy games are nothing in comparison.

i like long cutscenes o.o They let you sit back and relax for a bit. Maybe make a snack?

You can always just, you know, pause the game.

B-but the clock keeps running in FFX even when paused...
It makes me feel uncomfortable.

In all future games the pause button will be removed.
No more breaks!

That was done on purpose.
It's supposed to make you feel more immersed.
Time goes on in the virtual world, even without you.
