To ensure a cinematic experience it is necessary to watch the cut scenes




they knew it was gonna piss people off before they even released it, the fact they already created the question and answered it themselves's proves it...LOOK AT THE DATE THEY POSTED IT, 2 months before release LOL


EDIT for any new viewers to this thread, this expresses the exact purpose of this thread:


as posted here which includes another link to a more specific in-game experience with it:

Chirst. All you idiots complaining about this really must have shit for brains. THERE IS NO WAY TO AVOID LOADING TIMES! Rockstar made the choice to do cinematic scenes IN PLACE of loading screens. What would you rather look at, a black screen with a loading icon, or a cut scene...

Really, can people just quit bitching over this. Rockstar choose the best option.

And to pre-emptivley counter the 'Oh well the cutscenes add to the load times' response. Trust me, the bulk of the time is building/preparing the level so I doubt it would add much time at all.

This. They just made the cutscenes load times. Stop bitching and play the fucking game, or don't. It's your choice.

people who defend the loading are missing the point

its not like this is a GTA/RDR type game with hours of open gameplay

were watching unskippable cutscenes, that are supposedly loading the next playable section....yet as we all see, 99% of those areas are just short walking sections or a meaningless 2-3 guy fight and another rediculously long unskippable cutscene.

thats why its ridiculous. its there way to avoid just straight up saying, its a movie packaged as a game, which is what Metal Gear Solid got criticized for alot, but nobody wants to talk bad proffesionally about a rockstar game and give it a bad review cause of this, cause they wanna make sure they stay on their good side so they make the list for preview releases of GTA V possibly later this year

Glad to see you think it takes that long to load. I think it's a smoke screen IMO. I would prefer to sit through a black load screen then some of the lame cinemas. I think that should be my choice.

How about you quit bitching about people voicing thier complaints and quit calling people names. Also don't ask people to "Trust" you when start off bashing thier views.

This just another over rated Rockstar game (again IMO) It's full of flaws that people seem willing to over look for what ever reason. I would love to skip more cinemas or even watch a black load screen instead.

i think the fact they actually had their team develop the words "still loading..." appear every time you press ANY BUTTON, and continues to flash with each press of every button for the entire duration of every cutscene, every time, till it eventually fades out and you can control max, as if they're litterally laughing and saying F'U allong with this FAQ Q/A addressing it 2 months before the game even came out and anyone even knew about the issue.


the bottomline is, its not loading anything, they purposly developed it to not be skipped cause they have to hide the fact theres only 10 minutes of actual gameplay in the entire campaign

Dude you literally just posted a Q&A direct from Rockstar saying it's loading. But since you made the game you must know that obviously they are just lying to you.

WTF?? Are you really that ignorant. I've watched every cut scene I've come accross. I don't need to see them over and over again. I'd also argue entertainment vs art with you but obviously you have a pretty limit scope of mental abilities.

This game has a lot more than 15 minutes of gameplay, nor does it take "5 minutes" to load anything as some other cry baby said. "1% gameplay" is quite the ridiculous claim as well.

No doubt the irony of throwing all sorts of ridiculous accusations around at Rockstar whilst doing the same themselves is completely lost on these people.

theres 14 chapters and a mode called New York Minute which has bronze time trials of under 1 minute for most levels, the longest is only 2 minutes and thats still bronze, which means it can easily be beaten much shorter amount of time.

compared to just 1 of the missions in the Gay Tony DLC for GTA IV, which had a time of 10 minutes as one of the requirements to get a 100% for the mission towards the achievement...1 mission in a DLC

so do we really wanna go into semantics about how long Max Paynes gameplay is when its clearly short as hell when you take out all the cutscenes....when every other game has its campaign time mentioned in its reviews which normally reflect the amount of hours you're actually using the controller, not watching a movie, i dont doubt this "game" clocks in the normal 5+ hours of "campaign" thats pretty much the normal length of games, but we all know thats a flawed statement.

just like CliffyB saying Gears 3 was 10+ hours when u can actually finish it in 3.

sorry, i dont say a movie is 5 hours long cause i add up the time i was taking a shower, getting dressed, eating, driving to and from the theatre plus the actual time of the movie too...no the movie is the movie, the gameplay is the gameplay, its marketed and sold as a game not a movie.

As much as you have a point, would of it been so hard to post this image in the thread called "Unskippable Cutscenes".

Yes omg! As if r* head wasn't big enough, they think story
And cinematics are sooooo great u must watch... But after couple mins loading before the ch, cutscene at the begining and end, AND at least another 2-3 unskippable cinematic during the middle, and that's PER chapter. Times 5 play thrus, ugh , 1/3 of ur gameplay time will prob be watching these stupid cutscenes, having to listen to a poor sap Moap around and talk about wanting to die, lol. GET OVER YOURSELF ROCKSTAR SERIOUSLY!

The reason you can not skip the cut scenes is because the game is loading. Instead of giving you a black screen with some quotes and random images, the game is giving you the cut scenes to watch and is loading in the background. So until it is done loading you can't skip. I personally think this is a great idea because the story is good and there are no boring loading screens taking away from the gameplay.

Same. The cinematics were excellent and leave other Rockstar titles in the dust. No problem with enjoying anything of a high quality repeatedly.
