I want you to raise your hand if you’ve ever been victimized by unskippable cutscenes in video games.
I want you to raise your hand if you’ve ever lost a boss battle only to be forced to watch a cutscene over and over and over again before you could get back into the action. I want you to raise your hand if unskippable cutscenes have messed with your gaming life in any way.
I understand that sometimes cutscenes are there to be loading screens in disguise or to set up a scene that developers think is crucial to the narrative of a video game plot.
There has to be an option to skip these things nowadays. There are still modern games that have yet to come to terms with reality, like Far Cry 5 for example.
You can skip dialogue between NPC’s and in-game cutscenes but you know those pre-rendered scenes that the game is full of? Yeah, you can’t skip those for some reason and that just sucks.
Some of you care, and that’s totally fine, go ahead and enjoy! For the rest of us though, please let us skip cutscenes, we’re begging you.
