    That you do not fucking put a cutscene AFTER the goddamn autosave point. Personally I'm not very good at videogames and I die a lot so having to watch the same scene over and fucking over so I can just go die again is pretty fucking tedious. FUCK YOU! This is in reaction to SC: Conviction where you have to enter a building with the quickness with guys shooting at you, but you have to talk to a receptionist first :mad:

    Usually that sucks unless you get thrown into a mandatory battle as soon as the cutscene is over. Instead the fuckers should always put in the option to skip the cutscene.

    yeah, that's also an option. There's just no goddamn excuse to make it unskippable after the first watch.

    it should be an option to skip no matter what. if you don't care about the story, then who gives a shit? i was playing through kingdom hearts yesterday and it was the same shit. i would happen to die and have to sit through the same fucking cut scene. granted, they aren't that long, but it was still pissing me off to no end.

    true, a lot of the scenes in SC you can skip, but not this one. I just don't get it.

    I only hate when you can't skip them, I don't care where they are I care that I can't bypass them in any sort of way.

    Even if it's a game with no NG+ if you enjoyed it and start again to do something else and have to sit through come horribly long cut scenes it's rather annoying.

    They can leave them after an autosave, just need to add a skip cutscene option. Most games do that nowadays, ones that don't are fucking fail.

    Failed writers/directors/movie-maker-wannabes like forcing their crap on you. Who else would read/watch their tripe otherwise?

    Hey devs: Action games aren't movies. Give us filler "plot" and empty characters for entertainment (hi, Bolo Santosi) and let us go shoot things as soon as possible.

    the splinter cell issue is cause the game is loading in the background, when it loads, you can skip :dunno:

    I hate when you die within 0.2 seconds of spawning and then have to wait for the game to load again :mad:

    I didn't mind playing COD campaign because it instantly respawned you, no loading. BFBC2 however.. fuck that

    look negro i said on most of the cutscenes there is the option to skip, but when you get to the third echelon hq and are about to enter the office, you can't fucking skip.

    refer to my last post. its loading during said screens. sometimes it takes longer to load therefore it doesnt seem like you can skip

    but this is an in game cut scene unlike the other one's which come before or after a mission. I dunno, maybe I'm just an artard.

    :dunno: then, i havent seen one like that yet. but then again, it could still be loading at that point since load times in this game seem to be pretty long. dumping back to the menu takes way longer than it should

    Usually they make it so you can skip the cut scene if you've already played it.

    non-skippable cut-scenes are sometimes a lazy fix for bugs that are caused by going through the game too fast. i.e : next area not loading properly and falling through the world, broken scripts , ect.

    That's another thing I can't fucking stand, when you can't skip cut-scenes. Autosave...30 second cutscene...play your ass of...die...load...30 second cutscene...throw controller at wall...
