What do you think about cut scenes?

Kojima, Cliffy B, Jordan Mechner, Vander Caballero, Rhianna Pratchett and more weigh in

There are hard line stances against cut scenes (“cheating”!), Kojima considering them a natural outlet for all the movies he watched, and developers considering them one of many useful tools in this new Critical Path video.

I think Cliff Bleszinski makes a great point at the end: if there is a way you can develop a scene to remain interactive, it’s probably worth doing because that’s what videogames do so well. 

Also, always nice to be reminded of Resident Evil dialogue. Hah.
