Game with the best cut scenes.
You all know I have to say Final Fantasy VII, though it’s obviously not the only game with great cut scenes. I’m not going to post the most famous cut scene in the land since the Remake is coming out…eventually, and amazingly, that scene is now spoiler territory again for those who didn’t play the first time around, but it occurred 20 years ago, and is still counted amongst the best and most shocking scenes in video game history.
All of the Final Fantasies have amazing cut scenes to be honest, ever since they started them in FFVII and even the ones added to older FFs are stellar. I’m particularly fond of the opening to Final Fantasy IV.
And this one for FFVI always gives me chills.
For non-Final Fantasy there are too many in Mass Effect to count, especially Mass Effect 2. I’m trying to remember what the name of the green skinned asari was, but she had a thing for Shepherd, and the look on her face when she made a bit of a pass at her was heartbreaking and beautiful.
Then of course there’s the cut scene in Twilight Princess when the eponymous Midna’s true form is revealed.
I was just as speechless as Link.
