I was just doing Elonas mission, and we were up to the first cinematic at the Ghostly Hero. The cinematic lasts about 2 minutes, is extremely boring, and to top it all off - we were being attacked!

So, while we were dying on this misison, one n00b decided to watch the hole boring cinematic! When it finally ended, three people were left alive, and we'd wasted 2 minutes of our precious time!

Boy was he popular...

lol that sucks indeed. When you dont watch the Cinematic you gain 2 extra minutes for doing the mission, and that could just make the difference for a succesfull ending of the mission, or failure.

Oh god that is the most annoying thing ever, even when you say skip it they still do it there is always atleast ONE person who does it. I was doing an infusion run and these monsters followed us so when we entered the cinematic we could plainly see all 8 of us being attacked by about 15 monsters > end of cinematic > One person alive with low health...

While you play to win, some people actually play to enjoy the game. Some of us, for instance, are interested in the storylines of the game, the aspect which seperates the dull and repetitive blast-'em-ups from the decent games. Cutscenes are there for a reason; if you haven't seen them before then I have no problem with you watching them. If you've already seen them, don't want to see them again, and are only leaving it running to annoy people, then by all means say hello to my knuckles.

I play to enjoy the game but when we are doing a mission where all party members have seen it, yet they still insist on watching it(maybe to annoy me) it's stupid.

Its ALWAYS 5 out of 6 people in your party want to skip the cinematic, its always ONE person, i mean the cinematic is right at the start of the mission, you could just run to it on your own after the mission if you were that desperate, its not even part of the story.....its just telling you what you already know. I wouldn't mind so much if everybody hadn't agreed to skip it beforehand, and yet theres ALWAYS one person who has to watch it.

Rofl, well what was funnier was on Nolani mission that POW dude died, and the cinimatic went without him. It looks sooo funny, its like a ghost speaking.
