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!
