FMV in games

Recommended Posts

Does anyone miss these? Back when you had actual actors acting out cutscenes and the game felt like an actual cinematic film and everything wasn't CGI. Now, I know FMV in video games is sooooooo '90's, but still...

The problem with FMV's is that they are inflexible. With scripted cutscenes you can easily do things like switch the look of a character to another etc. this is especially important in RPGs

 

 

But FMV's do look pretty sweet if done right.. the one in the intro of Dawn of War is just plain awesome.

Good God, no.

 

 

RIP FMV and never return.

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

I actually strongly dislike any sort of cutscene or movie.  Anything that takes control from the player is bad, in my opinion.

 

I hate it when I'm playing a game and come to a pinnacle time in a story, only to have the control taken from me and watch my character react in a way I would not have him react.

 

Depends on the game. If it's a game about choices (RPG), then I would mostly agree. If I'm playing Zelda or RE4, tell me a good story.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beat Within

 

This game was FMV, took about 5-7 cds i believe? Great stuff! But nowadays animation is looking so realistic that either or does it for me. As long as their is a human element that i can relate too.

Always outnumbered, never out gunned!
