Nothing Says “Cop-Out” Like A Quick Time Event | Just like anyone, I have my own list of pet peeves when it comes to gaming. In-game save points, lack of autosave feature, poor voice acting, clumsy controls…I really could go on and on. But the one thing that gets me time and time again is the unnecessary use of quick time events. (Heavy Rain , PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)

I actually like qte. even when it serves no point.

Opinion articles like this are the reason I changed my N4G bookmark from the PS3 main page to PS3 News.

Like most game mechanics, QTEs can be well done or poorly done, used sparingly to good effect or overused, and result in enjoyment or distraction.

Like most opinion articles, this one wasn't needed.
