You want to skip these cutscenes and get on with the game, but lo and behold, the game won’t let you. It’s like the developers are forcing you to sit there and watch the cutscenes for no reason. “We spent all day slaving over a hot computer for this,” you can hear the developers say “no you sit here and watch every second of it.”
