20 Best Gaming Cutscenes Ever

30 July 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Square Enix

Video game cutscenes can exist to serve a number of purposes. Beyond just being a convenient way of progressing the story, particularly impressive cutscenes can serve as a reward for player progress or even just to immerse them further into the atmosphere of the game.

While cutscenes have traditionally been pre-rendered, animated or live action, advances in graphics technology means that many modern video game cutscenes are rendered entirely in-game. Typically, a cutscene completely removes control from the player, although a select few grant a certain amount of interactivity. In particular, the God of War series became known for its use of cinematic cutscenes.

Pac-Man is the game most commonly cited as containing the first ever cutscene, in the form of its intermissions featuring the ghosts chasing Pac-Man and vice-versa. The term itself was originally coined by Ron Gilbert in reference to the cutscenes in his adventure game Maniac Mansion. »

The show follows the usual structure of a CBS procedural — a group of specialized people are working against the clock to solve a problem that they are uniquely qualified to solve. Many of them have tragic backstories. Okay, so on CSI there is no clock, but Without a Trace, Person of Interest, and that serial killer one all have/had some element of working quickly to save someone. Con

Scorpion’s twist on the concept — that this team is made up of  super geniuses who basically don’t have any social skills — has been done a few times before. Con

However, the show’s other conceit — that this is based on the true life of Walter O’Brien, »
