Which is your best cutscene?
Mine would be the one in StarCraft 1 on the science vessel when the zerg ambush the marines and the ghost then they blow it up. I love that one.

All of the cutscenes in Panzer Dragoon Orta were amazing, and they flowed seemlessly into the gameplay. Definately the best I've seen to date.

Hmm, it's hard for me to pinpoint a specific cutscene from a game that I though was truly astounding. Though a few years back, when I first bought Final Fantasy VIII, I was absolutely amazed at the CGI work in the game: It was just so cool, and the cutscenes weaved seamlessly in and out of the normal gameplay graphics, it was incredible. More specifically the introduction scene, combined with the music - never seen anything that effected me more. I could say the same for FFX, but it was less revolutionary.

the cutscene when the Admiral kills himself in Starcraft Brood War.

also, the cutscene in FF VII when Sepiroth kills Aeris.

the movie in BloodRayne where she cuts the nazi shmucks ear off, then proceeds to dismember his hapless guards before finally feeding off the nazi with 1 ear:D

FOr some strange reason I loved watching all the cutscenes from the game Vampire The Masquerade: Redemption

Especially the alternate endings.



I also really liked the Jedi Knight cutscenes, all the Video footage was great! :D

I always loved the multiple endings of Kagero: Deception II. Man that was awesome. There had to be over seven.

Well, Blizzard always make awesome cutscenes, especially Warcraft III. Those are simply the best cinematics I have ever seen in a game. Almost worth buying Warcraft just for the cinematics. My favourites in WCIII are the cinematic after the human campaign and the intro to Warcraft III: Frozen Throne (the expansion pack).

*Goes and watch the War3 cinematics once again*

So many...

Vampire the masquerade: redemption, excellent cutscenes.

(oddworld) somthin'? Odyssey on Xbox, the character models were pretty good and the fur looked realistic, didnt like the game that much (good thing i wasnt the one playing it, i just enjoyed the cutscenes!).

Cinematics made by Blizzard: simply awesome, same goes for the FF series.

Driver had cool cutscenes too...those are the only ones i can remember at the moment.

ALL the cutscenes in FF VII....specifically the part where Sephiroth tears JENOVA statue from the wall or soemthing, the part when they do a closeup of sephiroth encased in ice, and when Sephiroth kills Aeris.

Tekken 4 had some pretty awesome cutscenes. The only thing that I didn't like were the poorly done voices... Most of the voices didn't suit the characters.... Xiaoyu and Christie are hot though... Heh Xiaoyu in her athletic outfit... mmmm...

The only reason to play FF8 in my opinion is the cut scenes. The story line is great too but it takes way too long fighting guys every third step to be really enjoyable unless you get Diablos ability where you can walk around forever without fighting random enemies.

All FF cut scenes are great. That is the one thing Square has managed to do right and exceed over and over again.

Legend of Dragoon had a singular cut scene about 2/3 rds through the game where they showed a whole bunch of people in their dragoon outfit dying. Awesome stuff.

I just beat the Enter the Matrix and those scenes help me with the whole Matrix movies now too.

For me, the best I think was Halo, right at the beginning, getting to know Master Chief....

It was also the getting to know what all the hype was about, and one of the first games I got on the XBOX, so it was all mixed in with that too.

EDIT:

Now that I think of it, my first game I ever bought - Dark Forces, I watched those cutscenes with intensity, Star Wars on a PC, it was awesome, just to see it, then waiting to kill those stormies....

Another game that really sticks out in my mind is Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus for PSOne. It had loads of wonderful little transitional cutscenes that to me seemed extremely graphically advanced for their day, and packed full of humour. Simply wonderful.

You didn't see them!!!

I'll tell you then:

One, like you said, is the guy turning the chick he was chasing for those hundreds of years, so she doesn't need the vampires blood to survive. (This happens if you have high humanity rating)

Another was you drinking the bad guys blood and becoming his slave (This happens if you choose to be his slave to be with the chick)

The Final was the best! You just on the Bad Guy and rup his throat and drink his blood, making you an Uber Vamp, totally evil! And you suck the blood outta the chick and she drops to the floor! Mwa ha ha ha! (If you have rock bottom humanity!)

Same with the first game, Oddysee, too. Loved all the cutscenes, very clever and funny. The introduction sequences to Devil May Cry and DMC2 are also very impressive - fast, furious and action-packed.

I liked that one, too, except for the fact that the ghost was a little bitch. What a wuss. Oh, no! Not Zerg! Even though I was taken at birth, conditioned, and trained to be the ultimate, fearless soldier, I'm going to stand here like a little ***** and not do anything!

What about the Protoss ambush one? "Protoss unit, Sarge! Comin' through the south pass! It looks broke!"

I really like the WarCraft III Human campaign ending, and the Frozen Throne ending is cool, too.
