Let's hope no other MMO does cutscenes like SWTOR

i would say no. its just too much for an mmo i think, that would be costly to keep pumping out story content and that's the only way you could pull it off successfully.

plus it makes mmo's too linear unless someone made a good story mode that was extremely diverse with a lot of different choices and outcomes, more than what SWTOR has.

which would be even more costly i think.

I am also a huge TSW fan but that doesn't mean i like it when people pull stuff out their ..(you know where) to make a point.

99%? you say? its only been 2 or 3 months since i stopped playing SWTOR but my memory is quite good. I think you are confusing GW2's static cut scenes with SWTOR.

As in life there are some "static" conversations (obviously you do not do much if you are talking business) - mostly side quests, class quest and world quests are having plenty of cutscenes that are very dynamic, including running from or toward dangers, almost dying in exposions, doing some extra crazy stuff... life frying opponents, performing acrobatics with lightsabers (mostly to impress my companion), sneaking to do some definitely nut stuff and the list goes on.... 

Got to see the whole picture not just one side of it...

I would love to but i don't think that will stop your exaggeration. You are clearly very biased when it comes to any other MMO which is not TSW.

TSW too have a lot of static coversations. I can also pull statistics out of my behind to make a point but i rather not.

Watched the video, and aside on nice poetry, it's the most static cutscene I've ever seen. It's a stactic monologue with nothing going on. Well, maybe  except the light moving around.

Was is meant as sarcasm?

Take Half Life 2 cutscenes where you were never removed from the game UI (never forcably lose control of your character), say during flashpoints, operations, Warzones, and special quest instances, .. then add a dialog wheel, and this would be the ultimate Star Wars..

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM9QoP3ghlo

 

Just take away the part about HL2 being a FPS .. add a 3rd person perspective ... imagine if all those interactive scenes were in flashpoints /drool.

 

NPC's turn to look at the players when speaking to them, no matter where they are standing, very cinematic, very well done ..

Just made one movie which is maybe a bit static but one of my favorites in SWTOR... so romantic and poetic and old fashioned...

I love the cutscenes in SWTOR. However, just considering the cost, it is going to make it very prohibitive to do in any future MMO's. The capital outlay for doing them does not mitigate the risk of a successful or a failed attempt. Further, those sort of cutscenes don't add as much when they really have little effect on the story itself. There are only minor "consequences" that occur from player choices and they almost never effect the final outcome of the story itself.

Will there be good MMO's in the future....sure. Will they have cutscenes as appears in SWTOR? Probably not.

Aye, I married the Voss too, pledged the 1000 year path, told her I loved her, pledged to follow her traditions, got her family to like me ..

 

Then went back to the ship and slept with Kaliyo, later dumped her and married Raina, but continued having mistresses around the galaxy.  Savior of the Universe, and bigot extraordinaire! :P

Hopefully not , as in I'd rather zero development time be spent on it cinematics matter none to me in a mmorpg.

Played EQ for years and loved it without cinematics.

I watch movies for movies , play mmorpg's for online interaction and gaming with lots of other people , not to be ripped out of the experiencience for a cinematic.

I suggest that you play EQ like MMO then:) I will stick with SWTOR like...  not that I do not respect your point of view. Obviously this kind of game is not your style. No reason though to deny them to exist, for these who love them.

That, however is yet to be seen, as we hardly know anything about it.

We know that Blizzard is making it. And Blizzard is the King of CGI cutscenes.

 

I believe Square enix holds that title. The Pandaria introduction looked like a generic pixar ad #100.

Square does hold the title for cutscenes from FFXI. I have played alot of mmo's and none have been better than FFXI. Examples you say!? you dont trust me?

These arent even the best cutscenes. I have yet to this day see a game produce better cutscenes. And yes, graphics are meh at best, but this is a 9year old game, and graphics arent everything when it comes to a cs.

I agree, SWTOR cutscenes are very good. I can't help but sit through them.

On the other hand, I can definitely see future games beating it in the visual department.

It's understanding, because you are a FF fan.  Similarily I can tolerate the cutscenes in SWTOR because I'm a Star Wars fan (and they also have the dialog wheel, which is nice).  On the whole though, I'd rather see companies invest in something with more of a real-time component (like post #30 link).

 

I give SWTOR a free pass, just like you give FFXI a free pass, but I'm generally not a huge fan of having to keep stopping what I'm doing to watch non-interactive video clips every so often.  They need to be more interactive with what I'm doing in real-time .. where I'm standing .. who I'm looking at .. what I'm saying .. they have to be apart of the game, not something that feels foreign .. to me that's why HL2 feels way more immersive than just pre-fab video clips.

 

No slight to SWTOR's story though, but the delivery could be improved, especially flashpoints, ops, single player instances, and such, questing in general.

 

I used that game as an example because, amzingly enough, it was done 8 years ago.
