30 Day Gaming Challenge: #16 – Best Cutscenes

Now, this will be an interesting one … day sixteen of the 30 Day Gaming Challenge relates to picking the game with the best cutscenes, and I know full well that my choice isn’t going to be in line with most people’s. You see, I love the cutscenes in Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns.

I know, I know, it wasn’t the most popular of games. But hey, that’s why I gave it a slot in an old In Desperate Need of Love! The thing is, this game was one of the reasons that I bought a PS3. I absolutely loved the look of it and, truth be told, I enjoyed it every bit as much as I wanted to. Anyway though, onto the cutscenes.
They’re stunning. Honestly, that pretty sums it up for me. The quality of animation was really good, and they served the purpose of not only moving the story along, but enhancing the experience for me. In my opinion, the voice acting was also better than most games I can remember. I mean, this was a far cry from the original Resident Evil! Nope, from the key plot points to that epic conclusion, it was a Helluva ride in terms of cut scenes.
But that’s just me. What about yourselves? What had the best cut scenes for you?
 

      1. It’s the latter, but that is also the hardest part because it is an MMORPG.
        Will you find soul mates in-game? Will they stick with you all the way to the finish line, which is realistically decades away from the starting point?
        WoW could be said to make up many lives from the old times!

  1. I’m not too much into cineastic games and many of my favorites don’t have cutscenes or nothing particularly special, so I’ll go with a CnC classic:

    (well, one of those anyway ^^)

  2. What stands out to me in regards to LR’s cutscenes is Jim Cummings’ booming voice talking near the church. And Steve Blum, I was going, “Okay, you’re totally not Vincent, but I can’t hear you in a FF game as not Vincent!”
