Unskippable scenes in games should be illegal!

Scenes with a skip button mocking me should be illegal.

i support 1st playthrough unskippable. and pause enabled is always good. (you might have to leave somewhere for a tiny bit etc)


I support this as well. And people are dying over 10 minute cutscenes? Sheesh...

Ugh, this brought up memories of two boss fights in Final Fantasy X. The one on Mt. Gagazet, and the Yunalesca fight. Those are a couple times I wished I could skip. Kind of ruins the epicness of the scenes when you keep dying and have to start that stuff over again. And god knows I died a LOT in those fights.

I don't mind unskippable as long as I can PAUSE.

I remember the old days where once I hit a scene, I was screwed for the next 10 minutes because I couldn't pause it.

AND, coincidentally, life decided to happen every single time a scene hit.


Yeah, thats the worst. You play a long sequence and then find yourself in the midst of a long cutscene

You have a GF/get married and then your playing and she comes in and starts yapping to you about stupid girlly stuff, you can't pause, and then she gets pissed that you aren't paying attention to her and your pissed because you can't hear whats going on due to her yapping and are misisng plot, and are basically forced to reload & replay the last hour of difficult gameplay so you can see the long cutscene again.

On certain games the cutscenes pause when you hit the ps button and im always grateful for that, especially when my wife comes up to tell me to take out the trash, like im supposed to do it right then and there.

*Watching cut scene*
Wife: Trash is full, will you take it out please?
Me: OK
*30 seconds later wife walks by carrying the trash and glaring at me because I didn't get up right then and there to take it out.*

All offenders will be arrested and beaten.

I'm joking but sometimes I have to fight off sleep while I sit there being force fed tutorial information or something else completely unimportant.

Last night I downloaded the demo for NFS: Most Wanted and sat through 5 minutes of the game explaining to me that I will be driving around the city doing stuff. Really?

Video games are not that complex that we need a full length feature movie to explain to us the ins and outs of the game.

It's not that big a deal but c'mon they should just make them skippable


MASS EFFECT!!! So many times I have had to sit through their opening just to see if my character looks good as they always look different when you actually play the game compared to the editor. Doesn't look good so I restart and have to sit though the opening again. lol

I am okay with not having the ability to skip during your first run of the game, but after you beat the game you should be able to skip cutscenes at the very least.

I don't mind if a cutscene is unskippable THE FIRST TIME ONLY (many games do this, let you skip a cutscene only if you have seen it before) but yeah, the damn things need to be skippable later.

Nintendo are the kinds of doing this wrong in any and every possible way. They cutscenes are always unskippable, some of them very very long, and worst of all TEND TO HAPPEN RIGHT AFTER A CHECKPOINT!

Did you just die? TOO BAD! Now you gotta watch that 10 minute unskippable cutscene all over again.... and again... and again... and again....
