Funny… I often wish video games were movies instead of games. I sometimes feel like playing the game is like working towards finishing the story… been disappointed a few times (Penumbra Overture comes to mind) when the game gets too hard to finish and I'm just left disappointed that I couldn't finish off the story.
So when someone is showing me a game and they skip the cutscenes to get to the game, a little piece of me dies. :P
Then again I never was much of a gamer.
