Top 10 Best In-Game Cutscenes

GameDynamo - "Cutscenes and movie cinematics have come a long way. Whether it's Old Snake crawling through the 'microwave chamber' in MGS4, Dom finding out the fate of his wife in Gears of War 2, or almost any of the dialogue scenes in the Uncharted and Dragon Age series, in-game cutscenes have become so good, they've mostly replaced prerendered movies.

Last week, I did a list of the top 10 prerendered and animated cutscenes throughout gaming history. Here's a look at my top 10 in-game cutscenes, that is, cinematics using the in-game assets rendered in the game engine." (Final Fantasy VIII, GameCube, Gears of War 2, ICO, Jade Empire, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Final Fantasy 8's cutscenes were just one of the many amazing things about the game.

I mean at the time I was blown away with even the intro fight between Squall and Seifer, obviously I was more blown away when I got more into the game. The Garden Fight was amazing :)

I would love to see what this would be like on the PS3...or knowing Square PS4.

Come on Square get started on a FF7 remake so you can do the same for FF8 and FF9.

I would have put the battle between the two Gardens on that list.

remakes for those games would be unbelievable, let's hope that happens!

Do you mean HD boosts or complete remakes? Both would be interesting, even an HD reboot with updated models.
WhiteLightning  +   978d ago
I meant remakes since FF7 fans have been going on about it for ages. Once FF7 sells a crap load Sqaure might stop acting all proud and "we know best" and start development on FF8 then FF9

I hadn't even thought about a FF8 or 9 complete remake. that would be incredible!

Add Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross along with FF7, 8 and 9 for an HD remake and we'll have the golden age of Square back!

Looking at the article though I feel it missed the cutscene from Shadow of Colossus, especially the first encounter. Now that was cool!

Agreed, Shadow of the Colossus had amazing cutscenes. Even if they don't do a remake of Chrono Trigger or Cross, I'd love for a sequel in the Chrono series. That would be amazing.

Would ResidentEvil4's knife fight count?

Number 1! is Raiden vs Vamp! that's good, well deserved.That really is the best cutscene this gen.
Though I think it's weird nothing from MGS3 is on the list also nothing from God of War series, but a Gears2 cutscene is at number 2...hmm..

sarabbc  +   978d ago
Day of the Tentacle and Chrono Trigger, that's some old school goodness!
