Could you do without the cut scenes in video games?

I like cutscenes in games but games like Final Fantasy Tactics did great scenes using the sprites of the game.

Cloud I do without them? Sure, it's not like I need them.

But if I had the option to have them or not, I would always like to have them. A cutscene more often than not makes a specific event more epic in my opinion.

It's like this poll was made to troll me personally.

Hey, anyone voting "no". Do everyone a favor and never ever even think of getting into the game development biz.

If cutscenes are done right, they can be great.

I remember when cut-scenes used to be what we played the game for, just to see the next awesome scene.

TC, I got an idea for your next poll: could you do without the pictures in novels?

It really is the same concept.

Ya but's thats a novel. I like to play video games not watch them. I guess the real issue here is I wish i could skip all cut scenes in games. Most games do this, but not all of them.

.....no it's not.
Sure I'm all for show, don't tell, but in many cases there are things that need to happen in cutscenes that simply cannot happen in gameplay. Showing events happening elsewhere to minor characters, for example, or showing the main character doing things that aren't actually possible within gameplay, or are otherwise not needed to do in gameplay.

What your analogy should be is "Could you do with all stories being written in the first person perspective from one character?"
