Welcome back to our 30 day video game challenge! If you’d like to catch up with the other days, click here.
Most of the time, we play the games that we’ve tucked into our systems. But sometimes, we wind up watching those wonderfully cinematic cut-scenes that developers have nestled in between play sequences. So, today the challenge wants to know:
Day 16: What game has the best cut-scenes?
The game that immediately comes to mind is Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, but then I remind myself that the question was about best cut-scenes, not absolute longest ever.
They were great, don’t get me wrong. I’m not sure there’s any other game that could force me to sit through a 45 minute cut-scene and still keep me entertained the entire time.
I think games like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus have some fantastic cut-scenes, and are peppered throughout just enough without stepping on the toes of the gameplay. Plus, they pack some punch when you see the endings!
A few other cut-scenes that stand out to me are:
#1. The opening scene from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. I just remember thinking how amazing it looked the first time I saw it.

#2. This scene from The Last of Us. I’m not sure I need to even describe it.

#3. And even I can apreciate the cinematic quality of the opening to Final Fantasy VII
