Do you ever skip cutscenes?

It’s OK, you can admit it. Sometimes you’re enjoying every part of a game except for the story and you just want to keep playing without having to watch several minutes of a bad movie between every level. 

Just kidding! People worked their fingers to the bone crafting those scenes, sculpting them from the hard stone of pure imagination. We owe it to them to watch every indulgent minute of the story of that guy and the two ladies who are into him for some reason and that other guy who is his friend or rival or possibly father.

Lauren Morton: I would never. I’ve always been here for the stories in games. Cutscenes are the reward. Why on earth would I grind through nigh endless fights with nameless bandits and spend twenty minutes sweating through a boss fight if not to hear a condescending monologue from the villain followed by a heartwarming scene in which my protagonists pledge their undying loyalty to one another?
