(Culture, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy XIII, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, Silent Hill 2, Vagrant Story, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Hmm, never had that problem and being taken out of the game from cutscenes and stuff.

Some pretty good cutscenes in that list.

For me the first cut-scene that really impacted me was the Metal Gear Solid intro. It mixed cut-scene with gameplay brilliantly with Snake infiltrating the Shadow Moses base by scuba gear. It was phenomenal at the time and completly blew me away. I though I was playing a movie for sure. After that intro I automatically became a MGS fan for life :)

It's a toss up for me , I loved watching cut-scenes in 3d when it first was done on Sega CD I think, or when it became the thing with the ps1 and saturn.
I will always be amazed by a well rendered CGI scene, that's for sure.
Can't forget japanese games for their anime like cut-scenes.

Cutscenes are a thing of the past. It's embarassing that devs still rely on them when they try to introduce their games with a trailer. Look at what current gen consoles, espesially the PS4 is capable of. Who needs cutscenes with such a powerhouse of a hardware???

EDIT: I was referring to CGI cutscenes of course.

Yeah I think CGI cutscenes are increasingly becoming a thing of the past. Trailers these day are usually running on the in game enigne.

Can somebody post the full list, I really don't want to click through 100 ad filled pages of whatculture.
OT: For me, the scene in MGS3 where snake salutes the boss's grave was particularly touching. As well as the "baby girl" moment in the Last of Us

I loved most of FF8's cutscenes and Xenogears intro

FFVIII's cutscenes were gorgeous. I remember the first time I saw the game was when it was first released and EB Games were playing the intro on their TVs...and I knew I had to buy it immediately!

I really liked Persona 3's ending cutscenes.
