The only time cutscenes should be used is to draw your attention to a waypoint in the story that is completely beyond your control (and therefore cannot be interactive).|
Like Zelda getting kidnapped by Gannon.
I found the games with the best narrative are often the ones that drop you right in it with no explanation, and it's up to you to find out the context.
Games that try to be an interactive movie from beginning to end bore me to tears. There's a thousand movies and tv shows that are much better; and thousands of books that are better written.
It's like soft core 'erotic' movies. Why bother when you can either just watch real porn; or watch a real movie?
I swear this thread used be about DRM.
