Even the ones where story looks like it was put on the back burner have an abundance of cutscenes.

6 hours of the tale of Deacon St John the biker lol.

I can’t fathom how long the cutscenes for a story heavy game like the Last of Us 2 will be and last gen had MGS4... Death Stranding will probably take the crown.

Only exception is the wipeout games which the developer was shut down.

Ehh i kinda find it more annoying that the highly rated ones like Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls & Detroit are literally like saying here is a controller, now repeat after me, when this happens, twist your thumb stick in some awkward way so that we can pretend you have any interaction in this movie.

God of War & Horizon though, great games.

Don't get me started on the trash that has become Gran Turismo Sport.

RIP GT 1996 - 2005.

@XVision84:

According to rejected movie reviewers who most game critics are.

To true gamers we value pure unadulterated gameplay.

Sony and Hideo Kojima are the anti christ to video games , I am seething with anger thinking of them

Because they add depth to the game? How else do you expect to learn the story of a game? I assume you loved destiny 1 for having barely any worthy cutscenes and having all the lore on the bungie website....

@DonaId: No, solely because this is a stupid thread. Days Gone is reported to have 6hrs of cut scenes in a 30hr game. Plus, you're playing a tired cliché at this point.

I wish it was exclusive to Sony but its not, Kingdom Hearts 3 comes to mind. They refuse to allow the play to game for more than 15 minutes consecutively.

The average male body needs 8 hours of sleep and the female needs 12 I believe. So if the poster is a female than 6 hours is half a day

This is officially the fucking dumbest thread i've been in. There is a debate that 6-hours is equal to half a day. The math is absurd.

This thread is wonderful. Honestly, I thought it was going to be the same ol' cutscene complaint thread that pops up every 3 or so months and it very much is but there may be some gems here.

It is half the day for over 50% of the population so going by majority rule it is a correct assumption.

@lundy86_4: surveys are self reported ask any scientist and they will tell you women need more sleep to heal their more fragile bodies and minds.

Not saying women are less capable than men as they are just as smart if not smarter but it’s a fact they are weaker

WOW!

You tried to make a snarky comment about the content of a game but it was a factually incorrect statement.

And then you tried to cover yourself by making up something that would only be used by a stand up comedian pretending to be ignorant.

I'll just conclude you're drunk and leave it at that.

It is math based on human perception, not perception to say a monkey or a giraffe which may or may not still be awake for merely 12 hours too.

?

Factually incorrect? last i checked subjective opinion is not always factual, but only factual based on the persons perception of the game?

6 hours yes, most if not all humans without a health condition start fatiguing hard around 12 hours awake.

A Day is 12 hours by human perception, a day and night cycle is 24 hours.

Based on this, 6 hours is half a day.

The Playstation replaced the PC as the "graphics" platform when production values became as important as the hardware.

Sadly, you need to sell games to justify production values, and not enough pc gamers support their platform, and thus, it's no longer the "graphics" platform unless you want to count console ports.

It's actually a boon, pc gaming can focus on smaller games with more substance while Sony users can overpay to play the next 4 hour Naughty Dog movie.

Oh and politics, that's more important than a game being a game now.
