Is It Cheating When A Game Uses Live-Action Cutscenes?
I don’t know about you, but when I think of a video game I think of beautiful CGI cut scenes and/or openings that look almost life-like. I don’t really want to play a game that has cheesy live-action cut scenes that try too hard (That means you Need For Speed). So much talent and hard work goes into making gorgeous CGI, but I feel as if companies sometimes like to take the easy way out and basically film a movie and insert it into the game. I mean, why spend time on CGI when you can just pay actors to act out a script? Live action needs to stay on TV shows and movies, not games. Seriously, if I am going to sit through copious amounts of live action scenes, why not flip on Netflix or the TV? Then again, companies don’t really care what we think, they would rather just push out a game rather than putting soul and spirit into it. Just my opinion, what do you guys think? The cheesy live-action scenes are actually what made me turn my nose up from the latest Need For Speed game, and I’ve always been a huge fan.
Atleast it transitioned well.
