    Oh yeah I didn't mean to say it happens to everyone. I guess I kind of implied that with the "grow up" bit there at the end.

    It is definitely a personal thing that happens in my brain for a variety of reasons. I could go on whining about it for a while! but I am stopping here

    Right now, there's a guy DJing while someone else plays Hohokum.

    Alright.

    Yaeh, that sounds about in line with what I expected out of The Order gameplay-wise. Sometimes I just want to play something pretty.

    Asura's Wrath was almost all QTEs and that was a fun time.

    No reason why The Order can't be the same.

    I like QTEs

    Shit yes

    Which is why I'm surprised I didn't like Asura's Wrath

    But to be fair my problem there was more with the aesthetic and anime-ness of it all

    The only time QTEs work is when this game explicitly advertises them and embraces them, such as God Of War or Asuras Wraith or that game where Jason goes missing. Those games sell it upfront.

    Hiding them in other types of games or using them to just give the player a reason the pay attention while cool cgi happens is just the worst.

    QTEs during gameplay or for certain sections can be fun.

    QTEs randomly thrown into cutscenes basically are just going to be a guarantee fail for me because that is when I do things like check my phone for texts.

    The new Zelda looks pretty great, no one believes that No Mans Sky will be what they say it will be but everyone really wants to believe them.

    Also apparently no The Witness?

    Did this game drop into the land of Half Life 3 or did I just miss it?

    It is good to know they're showing The Witness, as proof it still exists

    I want to see nothing on that game, though

    Wanna be as blind as possible going into it

    Kind of. I'm playing through Arkham Origins right now. I've been saving it for this time of the year. There's a pretty great fight with Deathstroke early on that is essentially a QTE, the Arkham style combat and a fighting game all at the same time.

    Here's a link to the Giant Bomb Quick Look.

    I like QTEs

    Me too.

    Heavy Rain, which I think used them a bit too often, really satisfied this. I gauged my reaction time and based on that my character would often succeed or fail at running, leaping, fighting, etc. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    RE4 and God of War let me know that I thought QTEs were neat

    Indigo Prophecy let me know I love QTEs

    I was sold on that game the instant you mopped up a blood stain by pushing the mop back and forth with the analog stick
