Why does it take so long to do everything in games nowadays? there's an animation or conversation for extremely menial actions and it becomes very repetitive, can't we just go back to clicking on objects or NPC's and having a menu pop up instantly?
because "muh cinematic experiunsh".
Shit's fucking ruining tons of games, D44M being the latest one being ruined by these pointless first-person animations and jammed-in level up / perk system.
FO4 even added pointless animations that makes cooking or crafting a pain.
the conversations in FO4 are the fucking worst. it was a lot better when you clicked on someone and time stopped and they were forced to speak with you
this shit of NPCs, and followers especially, wandering off when youre trying to get them to speak with you in infuriating
It has the opposite effect though, im beginning to think that it's all for trailers or press junkets where it isn't immediately irritating, imagine using the new chainsaw animation a thousands times in Doom.
Games like Stalker, Half Life or Souls that have minimal breaks in play are some of the most immersive experiences I've ever had.
Came in to say exactly fucking this.
When did this cinematic shit even begin? Why did devs think "wow, pointless drawn out cinematic bullshit is essential to our game's success!"? Why is it so hard to just add a few text boxes that you can read in no less than 5 seconds to do a simple task? Just fucking why?
I think the intention is to make it a litle bit more immersive, while threading the line betwen jmmersion and frustration. Not an easy job, can't sa I envy the game developers.
He is an impatient little twat.
Played both Far Cry 3 and 4, did not have issue with the animation shit. At one point, its like with Dark Souls action sequencing... But that little shit cannot understand it or adapt to it. Scrub, that is who he is.
It didn't have any drawn out first person animations though, open a door click on it, pick up health by walking over it, pick up objects by clicking on them and even when there's scripted things happening you are almost always in control and can walk around instead of viewing a first person cutscene.
