* The ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' series is played from the first person perspective of the protagonist of each game (normally the physicist-turned-saviour-of-mankind Gordon Freeman). Cutscenes are replaced with unskippable sequences of being locked in a room while you watch something happen or listen to a conversation. ** ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Episode 2'' adds slightly to the formula. Although the majority of the game follows the same pattern as its predecessors, it introduces one traditional cinematic cutscene (the [[spoiler:conversation with the G-man]]), and three sequences where Gordon is fully pinned in place and the game restricts the player's ability to even look away. Both Episodes also come with a cinematic cutscene at the start recapping previous events (although this isn't really part of the game as such).

not quite - its just in-engine dialogue, to my knowledge? in rpgs which have lots of talking anyway dialogue sequences aren't usually considered cutscenes.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' has extremely long cutscenes. Some of its cutscene sequences are more than half an hour long. In terms of "[[MemeticMutation LONGEST CUTSCENE EVER]]", this series is right next to, [[UpToEleven or maybe more than]], ''Franchise/MetalGear''. ** A preorder bonus for Xenosaga II allowed for watching and summarizing the first game as one complete cutscene. It last for FOUR HOURS. ** The second disk of its predesessor VideoGame/{{Xenogears}} was essencially a single 20 HOUR cutscene broken up by very short periods of action, usually a single boss fight or a short dungeon.

* The first two ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' games mostly used realtime scenes, with a few CGI videos. All subsequent games were exclusively realtime.

** While not to the same extent as its 2011 follow-up, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' is very cinematic as well, and manages to feature them in real time to cope with the limited capacity of the NintendoGameCube (otherwise, the game would have had to come in two discs).

Added DiffLines:
* Data Age's ''VideoGame/JourneyEscape'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} had an animated interpretation of the cover of Music/{{Journey}}'s 1981 album ''Escape'' as one, complete with the intro of "Don't Stop Believin'".

Oops, Wind Waker's DEMO was removed in the remake, not the ending credits!
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' is the first game in the ''Zelda'' series to use FMV cutscenes as part of its story. In fact, the game uses only one (not counting the demo video), at the very end of the game. The FMV consists of the entire "after the final battle" sequence, the staff credits, and the epilogue. The cutscene may have been prerendered in order to properly implement the transition from the game to the credits, or because the developers didn't have time to implement it. This was removed in the HD remake, presumably because the developers didn't want to re-record it. ''Master Quest'' and ''Collector's Edition'' also feature prerendered cutscenes for ''Ocarina of Time'''s ending. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' have prerendered cutscenes for their demo videos, and ''Skyward Sword'', ''Majora's Mask 3D'', and ''Ocarina of Time 3D'''s Sheikah Stones hints are prerendered. ''Skyward Sword'''s ending credit sequence is prerendered, too, to save on loading (Zelda goes through various locations in the game).

I fixed the Brawl section, as if you look at the game files, about half of them is THP videos. There's no vaugeness there, it's why it's dual-layer. I also fixed the information in The Wind Waker's bit to be accurate, though I didn't word it well.

* ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'' comes up to nearly two hours of prerendered cutscenes, which doesn't seem like a lot, but it does when you're actually going through the Subspace Emissary (Adventure Mode). In fact, the cutscenes alone might have been the reason the game is on a dual-layer disc, which offers twice the capacity of a regular Wii game disc.

* BlizzardEntertainment's ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' and ''{{VideoGame/Diablo}}'' games are renowned for having, at the time of their release, very well-done pre-rendered animation. (The most recent games have truly cutting-edge rendering. ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' has both kinds of cutscene.

* One of the biggest complaints about ''EternalSonata'' was its large amount of cutscenes, several of which were also very long. It gets worse if you count the [[ExpositionBreak Chopin history lessons]].

* ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' uses 3D cutscenes, as does Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. In a GameCube Pokemon bonus disc, [[spoiler: connect the GameBoyAdvance and a copy of the English Ruby '''''or''''' Sapphire, and you will be rewarded with a cutscene of Jirachi appearing to '''you''', the one who connected the Game Boy Advance in the first place.]] ** The Pokémon series didn't have many cutscenes at all in the first two generations, mostly limited to making certain sprites move around on the screen. The biggest visual effect in either of the first two generations was making the S.S. Anne sail out of port. Starting with around ''Emerald'', though, things started getting bigger and grander, with cutscenes utilizing unique artwork and/or 3D models.
