When it comes to cinematics in gaming, there is no shortage of high quality creations. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of cool game
cinematics in this thread, with each member choosing their favourites. Please include a brief description of the game name, when the cinematic
appears, whether it is regarded as a spoiler for those that haven't played it, and a link to the video. Also feel free to include what you feel makes
the cinematic epic.
Game: Diablo 3.
Appears: End of Act 1.
Spoiler: Lore: Yes, Overall game story: No.
This cinematic has many fascinating qualities; cool flash-backs, pleasing aesthetics, quality sound effects, legendary music, solid voice acting and
Totally. My favorite cinematics aren't necessarily those with epic, awe-inspiring graphics but the ones with a kind of subtle as a sledgehammer
silent humor that just fills one with satisfaction. Like Dave in Borderlands 2. No epic graphics or great visual artistry. Just a well executed and
intensely satisfying cinematic:
It's the simple things in life that sometimes are the most pleasing and "epic".
The following is most definitely a spoiler for Final Fantasy VII!
For me absolutely nothing top's the scene in FFVII which show's Aeris's/ Aerith's death. Playing the game was the first time for me that I became
absolutely immersed in a game and it's characters. That scene was nothing short of a huge shock... unless if you already know in advance, anybody who
play's absolutely does not see it coming!
At that point in the game there appear's to be no imminent danger and Aeris is kneeling in a sanctuary praying for the one thing that can save the
world....the next instance she is brutally mudered and all hope shattered. It's a very intricate storyline so I won't go on....just to say that the
significance, meaning and timing of that scene is epic!
The scene it'self isn't anything technically breathtaking... it was only 1997 to be fair. But the emotional roller coaster it take's you on if you
become immersed in the game ( which you can't help) has to be one of the most epic moment's in gaming history!
I could link a bunch of them probably, but the one that still comes to mind is the dark souls intro. It really did set the mood of the whole game and
I still think it's one of the most interesting and fun games to immerse yourself into that came out this whole year. It was in many ways the
direction diablo 3 should have went instead of sticking to there old model.
Ah I still remember when sephiroth killed Aerith's, it was a wake up moment and added a completely serious moment to the whole outlook of the game.
The whole game changed tempo and mood after that part. Though looking at it now with the blocky characters it's hard to imagine how back then every
kid was googly eyed over the new and awesome shiny graphics this game had.
Crisis Core was a good game to for the psp, it put in perspective some of the story.
That scene drove me into killing Sepiroth so many times, over and over...........
any game I could find him in...
That is truly one of the most epic moments in any video game I have ever played!
I was going to post that, but couldn't find the revamped version of it that wasn't 10 minutes long.
(there is a remake out there that is stunning)
Xenosaga was ultimately a failure to create something as awesome, of which xenogears was. It was slated to be a 5 or more part game, or episodes,
they eventually cut it down to 3 games, or three episodes of which the original game Xenogears would be something along the lines of episode 10. They
were going to go big but busted on it and cut suit.
But ya I think the cut-scenes in Xenogears were something like 8 hours and that was for each individual game considering that 3 games came out that
would make 24 or so hours of cut-scenes. Most games have at most like 15 or 20 minutes of cutscenes, so ya that is a lot even for an RPG.
But I for one still want to see a Xenogears remake, rather then any more xenosaga episodes tacked on.
I actually checked and there are vids of the cut-scenes from the xenosaga games. I wont be linking them because there like 7 to 8 hours long.
That and unless you played the game they would be wacky and make no sense what so ever. Kind of like this scene were Albedo rips his own head off and
One game along with Red Dead Redemption which I never played or got into very far. There making a Red Dead Redemption 2 I think for the new systems
PS4 and X-box one which are coming out latter this year or next year. By then I would want to play through the first game from beginning to end,
everybody who played the game gave it nothing but good reviews.
