    Default Do the cutscenes make you mad?!

    Throughout the games, there's at least two hours of cutscenes. These are tedious to flick through, and take soooo long. Do you think there should be less cutscenes, or maybe the ability to skip them?

    I didn't mean to say I don't like them, I just think there should be less of them or make them shorter, because it's brutal to go through them. I press A at least a five thousand times throughout the whole Explorers of Sky game.

    I wish they weren't as long as they are.
    By the time they're finished, I'm too bored to play the game, whichever PMD it is. :P

    This is one of my manyissues. I decide that it's time to play MD again, get all excited, but then get bored out of my mind by the cutscenes.

    Depends. When I first play I don't mind them at all. They can get a bit annoying when I play the game for the *insert ridiculously high number here*th time. The only one that makes me mad is apple woods :P

    The cutscenes that had like 5,000 lines of dialogue really annoyed me when I played through these games. I get really impatient bashing the A button repeatedly, trying to get whatever Pokemon's talking to just shut up.

    But in the main Pokemon games, I actually like reading through all the dialogue...

    I LOVE cutscenes! What's wrong with them? People should NEVER skip them, so why give the ability to do it? :P

    Sort of. I disliked them at first since they could get pretty long, but I started to like them later on since they provided a lot of useful information. I don't think I would've done as well while playing the Mystery Dungeon games if it hadn't been for those cut-scenes.

    Unskipable cutscenes are always a bad thing, but in a game like this, they're terrible. Yes, I like the story. Yes, the cutscenes are great. No, I don't want to have to watch them every time I play the game. I'd probably play through the game more often if it weren't for the fact that the cutscenes are so common and so unskipable.

    true. but in PMD, i don't mind NOT to skip them cause it has a mixture of emotions, which is one point of love the game.

    But by the fifth time you see the same cutscene, it starts to lose it's impact.

    Most of them annoys the heck out of me. It kind of reminds me of Conker's Bad Fur Day/Conker: Live and Reloaded when you don't skip each and every cutscene until you beat the game once.

    I love the cutscenes. Without them we would not have the epic ending and when Grovyle sacrifises himself.

    You should be able to skip them, they are plain annoying.

    I really enjoy the cut-scenes. Well, most of them anyway. At least, I enjoyed them after the first 2-3 times playing it. But after playing it again for a 4th time? I just want to skip half the cut-scenes that I should know by heart.

    That's why I have to agree that there should be a skip option at some point. In one game I play you skip cut-scenes by clicking start, then pressing the word "Skip>>" on the touch pad. I think it would be awesome if PMD had this for the extreeemely long cut-scenes

    I like the cutscenes more than the gameplay.

    Sometimes skipping a cutscene can not advance the story.

    Well sometimes it can't advance without them, but sometimes you have gone through a dungeon, gotten to the boss, then died. Then you have to go through the whole cutscene again and again until the boss is the defeated.

    I just feel as if it should be the players choice whether to keep a cutscene, or not to. At least for the cutscenes that don't have a "Yes" or "No" option that decides the fate of the plot. I haven't replayed the game from the beginning, but I don't think all the cut scenes have a "yes" or "no" that decide the plots faith...

    The first few cutscenes (not on the beach, but the ones that teach you how to play) are annoying, but personally I love all the cutscenes. <3

    I like the cutscenes because they add to the storyline of the games, which are very good if you read through it. Although I admit the flashbacks are kind of annoying but again, it adds to the whole PMD experience.

    I actually like the cutscenes better than the dungeon exploring. For me, I don't really enjoy going through dungeons. My favorite part of the games are the incredible storylines.

    Not really, I appreciate the storyline and I love experiencing it again and again.

    The cut-scenes are enjoyable and touching, but after re-playing the game a few times it gets annoying as hell -.-
    After the game has been completed once, a option should be there :/

    Ranger/MD is worse than the main series.
