I am liking Everything I hear about this game and its pretty.

indeed QTE is the worst invention to ever plague games.. They can turn a great game into a crap game. I will avoid a game no matter how great it is if it has a lot of QTE in it. It's why I don't play God Of War..


Thank the Lord, dislike them with a passion. loving the sound of this game so far.

QTE is shit . I'm wondering who the F*** brought this stupid crap idea to video games in the first place !

Shenmue made it popular... only one of the most respected games of all time.

Shenmue did QTE well imo

i believe it was the game dragons lair that brought qte's. but i didnt play pc games back then so i could be mistaken and it could have been some other game

Dragons lair came out in 1983 and i am pretty sure it was the first. And actually i enjoyed playing that game.

QTE is a game mechanic like aiming down sights, hiding behind cover, stealth etc.. its how game devs use it thats the problem

A developer as good as CD project RED doesn't need to take cheap shortcuts with scripted animations, their new combat system looks fantastic and really seamless.

QTEs are the MK3/Killer Instinct "dial-a-combo" of the action game world.

Pure crap.

MysticStrummer1821d ago

They remind me more of Dragon's Lair, hitting the right button at the right time to advance the action, though QTEs are more obvious about which button to hit.

I don't mind them in moderation, but they can definitely be overused.
