Whether a means to further a game’s narrative, linger on an emotionally charged moment, or simply a way to show off what's capable on impressive new hardware, cinematic sequences have been integral to video games for decades.

With Sony's push for narrative driven exclusives like Horizon Zero Dawn or Ghost of Tsushima, and critics celebrating meaningful storytelling across the board, video game cutscenes will always play an important part of the way games are made.
