i Hate Cutscenes
i think the big reason why i love Half-Life is that it tells the story with no cutsceens (only sometimes with Gman) and its not because i dont wont to hear the story or i think the story dossent matter it just for me i dont like that the hole game stop to tell a story! and i think that Valve has made it much more efficient to tell the story!

Let me now what you think!

Would you believe that the original Half-LIfe actually won an award for the best storyline back in 1999?

Half Life could easily include Cut Scenes, I see no reason why the game wouldnt be just as good if not better with well done cinematics

Simple, because cinematics break immersion. Imagine how absurd skyrim would be if there was a cinematic every time you sap a dragon soul. Intro cinematic is fine, ending cinematic is fine. Cinematic for no reason other than to explain the story because the developers weren't creative enough to incorporate it via gameplay is laziness.

Half Life is linear, Skyrim is an open world RPG, linear games can easily include cutscences. Just my opinion
