Do we even need the cutscene anymore?

This article is over 10 years old and may contain outdated information

The cutscene has been a big part of gaming for a long time now. Of course in the early days the consoles didn’t have the power to play cutscenes but with the PlayStation 1 new things were possible. Since then cutscenes have become the norm and some of them are brilliant. It has always been a fine line though, we buy games to play not to watch and some gamers are adverse to cutscenes altogether. The main point of a cutscene is to advance the story and give you information in a way that gameplay couldn’t. Cutscenes usually featured better graphics than the actual gameplay itself but what with the fancy graphics we have these days, is the cutscene needed any more?
