During a recent playthrough it struck me that while the game's dark fantasy aesthetic does look good, it doesn't look as good as its cut scenes do. The cut scenes look stylistically similar to the rest of the game, but there's more detailed texturing, smoother animation – in fact, it looks better in every conceivable way. Demon's Souls uses pre-rendered CGI footage for its cut scenes, sparingly placed between long chapters of dungeon crawling. It reminded me of the PlayStation games of the late 90s, when pre-rendered footage was the standard for video game cut scenes. A decade later and CGI cut scenes are almost completely out of fashion. What happened?"
