    I really like cut scenes as long as they are in moderation and are skippable after the first time you've watch them.

    (What if it was a cut scene involving baby hippos, Tziva?)

    No, really, I do like cut scenes. I don't like the in-game event scenes that we were showered with in Cataclysm (although those can be tolerable if used sparingly). Genuine cut scenes are awesome, even if they don't include hippos, but they have to be quality, relevant, and in moderation. I don't want to OD on them every five minutes, but I love really epic ones like Wrathgate or the end of the Lich King, etc.

    They would've fitted nicely at end of each zone.

    The opening to the Vale
    Etc

    I personally would have liked more. I love the story they tell and the way they tell it. The cut scenes add so much life to the story.

    I agree, most games should have more cutscenes. Its one of the reasons I like GW2 more now because in storymode you get cutscenes on every mission with a huge dialogue between characters. Even in dungeons you get lots of cutscenes to explain the lore behind each place and its all easily skipped if you don't want to listen to them as well so you get the best of both worlds.

    Cut Scenes are good for when it's important. Seeing them A LOT, no thanks.

    More cut-scenes with high-poly characters would be nice, yes. I really enjoy them. The other cut-scenes with in-game models and nothing more than some camera movements can be quite annoying though.

    I agree the other scenes don't really add anything

    yeah I wish there was more of them while levelling. I just hope we will see more of them in upcoming patches, this would be a great way to tell a story of all that Alliance vs Horde conflict.

    I loved the one in Jade Forest, pity they didn't put in more of that kind.

    No, I find them a complete waste of time and I would rather they spent time on other things.

    Right those two minutes in Jade Forest must've been hell for you. And the people working on that is probably the cinematics department. It's not like they could give you a raid for cutting away a cinematic.

    Yea I agree with most of the people here. They're kinda cool the first time around. Then they just get in the way and my ui freaks out sometimes and I cant skip em always. So I'm cool with fewer. I liked the wrath model in this respect. The wrath gate was badass, and you had to work through a lot of quests to get it and it was worth it and worth watching. But it didnt really get in the way cuz it didnt pop up every time you leveled through unless you really looked for it.

    Personally I love the cut scenes if they add to the story, again like uldum but some people just want to kill x mob and move on
    It is difficult to see how watching Harrison Jones run up a causeway advances the story.

    Cut scenes in Cataclysm were massively overplayed. They got a good response from Wrathgate and overplayed their hand. CGI based cut scenes also need to be something special. The Klaaxi Council was perhaps the one scene in the game other than the Jade Forest which could have carried it off but didn't get one. However, that wasn't a major loss and the cut scene provided worked well enough.

    That is exactly how the longer cut scenes are in MoP, also. Jade Forest and Valley of the Four Winds, for example. I think many people are confusing the short cut scenes(uldum, hyjal) with the longer cut scenes(wrathgate, jade forest battle, thrall capture). The OP is obviously referring to the longer type of cut scenes, seeing as how he posted a video as reference. The longer cut scenes are more like short clips, not sure what to call them...

    The longer cut scenes usually always include audio, while the short ones don't, if i recall correctly.

    Then cata made me sit through cutscenes in every zone and quite often and I ended up tabbing out or going to get a coffee because they were nothing special.
    Exactly how i felt with cutscenes. I did like some of the ones in Jade forest, particularly the one with the horde v alliance battle at the serpent's heart, (though it was followed by a TERRIBLY lackluster "oh just plug 10 of these and the big bad guy dies" quest.. what a joke) but then outside of that zone there were things that i feel should have been in cinematics that weren't. Really i think they were just scared because of Uldum where they made absolutely everything including your character blinking a damn cutscene which is why people complained.

    Sorry, but this is not correct. There are cut scenes in Kun Lai Summit and The Dreaded Wastes too.
