Which Do You Hate More?

In the spirit of the internet where hating things is the order of the day let's discuss which you hate more in a video game: quick time events or cutscenes that you can't skip. Go!

QTE. At least with a cutscene you can dick around and do other stuff while it's happening- read a book, masturbate, whatever. With QTEs you have to pay careful attention at all times.

Unskippable cutscenes. I don't want to see the same crap over and over again when I reload a checkpoint. Sometimes I just don't want to see a cutscene at all.

QTE's however you just press a few buttons and that's it.

Cutscenes you can't skip. If I die and have to restart the whole cutsene again. . . it's grueling. Some scenes I can quote verbatim because the objective was so dang hard.
I'll make a big enough ruckus for everyone.

I never skip cutscenes anyway. The only time they suck is when there's a checkpoint right before, and not after like the should be now, them.

QTE's are rarely ever good though.

QTE - All they ever end up being is random button mashing that drags the game down. The cutscenes are only annoying the second time you play a game (if you don't care for the story) or if you keep dying in the same spot. QTEs will always suck, even on the first time playing the game.

Unskippable cutscenes, especially during challenging portions of the game. I don't mind QTE's, they keep you on your toes.

You know what's really bad? The two combined.

Complete... global... SATURATION.

The scene isn't THAT long but damn if I didn't have to see it 30 times.

To answer the topic I vote unskippable cutscenes.
