Sony Interactive Entertainment's upcoming PS4 exclusive Days Gone appears to have a whole lot of cinematics telling the story of Deacon St. John.
I hope so. The reveal trailer had a great tone.
hours of cinematics... so what is that a bad thing lol... everything is bad now a days.
Doesn't look to me that he's describing it as a bad thing?
Not a bad thing at all as long as the gameplay is also compelling without the overuse of quick time events. This is Sony's forte, story driven action games and they are good at it.
it was when quantum break had hours of cinematic but now its ok i guess
^Quantum Break had ENTIRE live action episodes breaking up what little gameplay there was! Hardly equivalent to even what we've seen so far of the interactivity offered by Days Gone... Nice try though 👍
If it were a short game I'd say probably a bad thing. But for a fairly decent long game, it's not really that much.
"it was when quantum break had hours of cinematic but now its ok i guess" Can you tell me which version of Quantum Break you purchased? I must have picked up the cheaper version that wasn't open world. Can you tell me how the label is marked so I get the correct one? And I say this as a person that DOES NOT DISLIKE QUANTUM BREAK. But I understand why many people did not care for it. You are grasping at straws attempting to compare two titles from wholly different genres. Linear SP game (and I like those sorts of titles) vs an Open World title (and I like those too). But they are different games.
UH YEAH it is when your paying $60.00 for a game. Hours of cinematic trailers means LESS actual game play. I'm not paying for cinematic trailers I'm paying to play the game.
its gonna be awesome. I really can't wait to play this one.
Quantum Break has four 30min episodes. That's just over 1 hour. Plus the game was super short.
Late shift is entirely a cinematic experience. And I loved it. If u don't like these games, don't buy it. However the game is not out yet to really judge or criticise.
As long as you can skip it, nothing worse then going through a game again for trophies or what not and having to watch long ass cutscenes. First world problems lol
Horizon Zero Dawn more than 4 hours worth of cinematics and it didn't affect the quality of the game. In fact, the cinematics only added depth to the gameplay.
That's a good point, in an open world game with dozens of hours of content, even 4 hours of cutscenes doesn't feel like a lot. I never felt like horizon has lots of cutscenes anyway.
Honestly it depends on how they implement it. If it is anything like MGS4 where you watch a 30 min cinematic and then go down a hallway to watch another 30 min cinematic, then I think it would be bad. But if it is split up well enough to where you are getting some good game time in, then it should be fine. Probably just make it better in ways. Like ND does it basically. This game definitely looks fun to me.
It's an open world game..
Lol you don't understand what I said do you? I wasn't saying anything that it would be like MGS. I was just using that as an example. I understand it's an open world game. I never said the story would be a bad thing in this game. I was just stating where story can be too much and actually make you lose interest in the game. Which is why some people are not fans of long cutscenes or too many of them.
He just said 4 30 min episodes that are 1 hr all together rofl can't make this stuff up lol
I love story and story-telling in games. Most of the highest ranking games, and those deemed to be classics have great stories. Now saying that, gameplay also has to be top-notch!
yeah because mario had such a huge story and pacman and donkey kong. wipeout, tekken too.....(sarcasm) most of the biggest games ever had little to no story, pubg is the latest, tetris and so on
You cannot expect logic in n4g, especially when it comes to anything playstation.
Do you understand what the phrase “Most of” means?
@bolimekurac TLOU, Uncharted, Zelda, Persona, Metal Gear Solid, Suikoden, Final Fantasy, Syphon Filter, Tenchu, etc, etc, etc.
for every game you mention with a story someone can find 2 without. stories can be great in games and other games simply dont need them because the game is that good. stories are great and all but i rather them spend time on gameplay and less on cinematics which many just skip

Excellent news now this is my type of game. Day 1 buy for me.
I guess some people expected this to be bad news lol. This is an open world game so there will be lots of gameplay obviously. As long as the gameplay is there, cinematica are not a problem. And if you don’t like them, skip them!
That is true. As long as the gameplay is good and long it doesn't matter.
Exactly its good news. Though it was sort of predictable since its a story driven game. Its not just a 'zombie shooting game' as some people say. Its telling a story
good i like that my issue with MGS5 was it didn't have many Cinematic scenes. As long as the story is good i don't see how that's an issue. I don't know why but i feel like a lot of people will over look this game that is why it should be released when there isn't much launching around it the E3 when it was revealed there wasn't much crowd at days gone booth i think for once sony did a poor job of introducing and showing the game
I strongly disagree man. I think the reveal was awesome. Possibly misunderstood for some people but it showed story focus, adrenaline filled action, motorbike in open world etc I think people not liking the reveal just didnt pay attention enough.
I agree I am buying it I hope it succeeds man. This is the first game from bend for home console in a long time
This is news?? Almost every game has hours of cutscenes especially open world.
Totally agree. Im very disappointed with DualShockers here.. 'mentioned that Sony’s upcoming game has a “whole bunch of hours” of cinematics.' and they make an article about that .. wth?
More game, less movie please.
A balance of both is great.
Let them bitch lol, who cares? Game looks great so far, so some are obviously going to be upset by it 😁
Here is a hint, don't like a huge open world game with hours of cut scenes? Don't get it, The Witcher 3 had over 12 hours.
Agree if these people hating on the game because it actually has a story and cutscene's don't like it. Then simple put don't buy it, this game is simply not for you. Go back to your online no story grindfest's instead. As for me games like this are why i game in the first place. Excellent story drivin game's like The Last Of Us, and Witcher 3 are my thing.
Heh, I guess people are okay with games taking the easy route and not being interactive as much as possible. One could imagine how less powerful it would have been if the Last of Us' entire prologue was told in the form of a cutscene.
Oh I say! Really? Could one?! Well, "heh".. 🤔
Love it!! That's why I love PS4 sp experiences that tell interesting stories.
As long as the gameplay is tops. 1886 was so boring.
You know Days Gone is open world, right ? Even like Horizon Zero Dawn is an open world action adventure with a lot of dialogue and cutscenes with great gameplay.
You can even say Mass Effect series have a lot of cinematic and dialogue because it’s RPG. The Order 1886 was a linear game.
Agreed. It was torture to play
No one take you serious anymore, @Frinker. You always cynical person, Frinker. Don’t you trust Sony Bend ?
I played Golden Abyss for the Vita....can you say the same, Twoforce?
@Frinker Golden Abyss was much better than The Order 1886. There was plenty of gameplay in that one. If it was that bad it would have a meta that's alot lower than 80.
When did I suggest Golden Abyss was bad?
@Frinker Then why don't you trust Sony Bend? I mean if Uncharted Golden Abyss was good then I don't see why they can't make another good game. This isn't Digital Homicide that we are talking about.
When did I say I didn't trust Sony Bend?
U never played 1886.
This is definitely a world I'd rather play than watch, but hopefully it means it's long.
Well if they said it has a few minutes of cinematics its would obviously mean its very short.
No it wouldn't. It would mean it has a few minutes of cinematics. Cutscenes and cinematics are not one and the same with game length. It's just for whatever reason they're used abundantly in many games today. Strange that people would disagree with what I said too. I guess they want a short game then?
The few we ve been shown already had quite a few cutscenes obviously. Just needs add 1+1 to see its story driven with cutscemes and a big open world game with tons of gameplay. I didnt disagree with your first comment but definitely disagree with the second.
Perfect. Not everything needs to be all gameplay with less focus on storytelling. We can’t forget to include variety in the gaming industry.
And as you say, here lies the difference. MP vs SP. I enjoy both.
As long as the gameplay is proportionately long, I am fine with this. I like the cinematics.
This game looks awesome. Hopefully there is a good balance of gameplay and cutscenes.
Here is something for the same troll "journalists" who trashed The Order: 1886 to cling to when it comes time for reviews i guess. Let's see how many outlets use this as a con in their reviews. I personally look forward to this game along with God of War 4 and RedDeadRedemption 2. Only games I really want this year.
Great, I mean its an SP i expect nothing less, looks like it can follow in the likes of TLOU when it comes to cinematics and gameplay.
Game looks like it has an interesting story AND fun gameplay. Was sold since day 1.
Just as long as there are hours of gameplay. I don't buy games to watch movies. That's what movies are for.
I cant wait cor this game. Talking about cinematics. I was sad that Mgs V barely had any. I was expecting Mgs 3 level of cinematics.
This article could say it was only cinematics and the fan boys would think it was the greatest "game" ever.
And the haters like you are even worse when they see “Ps4 exclusive.”
And those with no interest in the game (or those that cant even play it when it comes out) could avoid commenting. But... Nobody knows if it's the greatest game ever...because it's not out yet. Hopefully at some point this year, some will be able to pass judgement - after they've played it.
