The Max Payne 3 example mentions a string of QT Es that pop up during a particular cut-scene... can anyone reference which scene it was? I can't honestly recall any QT Es that weren't just 'slow the action down and tell you the control for what you're doing', like the first time you encounter an enemy (shootdodging) or the first time you find an enemy while unarmed and need to disarm him (during the final stage set in the Fabricas Branco building).

EDIT: Le sigh. I somehow forgot about the fight with one of the Commando Sombra lieutenants. I suppose it technically counts since you can't move about, even if the buttons pressed are the actual controls for the actions made (read: melee). My bad.

Shouldnt be on this list... it should be more on action command because the attack clashes are closer to that than press x not to die...

its not during a cutscene, its just an interpretation of what you can do... and the bare fact you have an option puts it into the greyzone and the rest throws it further away from this... it shouldnt be on this articel its wrong.

Okay to restore the quote? No reason was given for its deletion and it fits the topic perfectly. There's also no new quote to replace it.

From the 'history' page, the quote is:

Meanwhile, you go back to Resident Evil 4, it's like, BITCH, THIS AIN'T A CUTSCENE! PRESS A! PRESS A! YOU DON'T GOT TIME TO SMOKE A BOWL! YOU STILL PLAYIN! JUMP, GYPSY! C'MON, JUMP!

Nope. I deleted it because it's loud (that is, allcaps) and obnoxious, and only partly relevant. It only really works for people who already know who he is.
