Hey, I ain't saying I don't like unoriginal concepts if they're executed competently.

I'm just not seeing that. At all.

One vote to cast? Only one? I know the question is "What's your favourite cutscene?", but how about casting 3 or so votes? Please? Pwetty please?



 
Then it wouldn't be your Favourite would it?

Why do people go to see movies? They're all the same. Formulaic, trite and we've seen everything before. Unless you actively make yourself dislike them for this fact, they can (and will, as we've seen from the poll) still be fun to watch.

I can vote my favourite cutscene and a few other cutscenes I like. IMHO, the Intros are to the same level and I'd also like to vote for Ancients 1. I haven't voted yet simply because I put FS1's Intro, FS2's Intro and the first Ancient monologue to the same level and really can't say which one of them I prefer.

Consider the Ships left to do poll as an example. That poll works admirably because HLPers can cast more than one vote. :nod:

Not so. There are many movies that are genuinely original. Nor does recognizing the flaws in something necessarily mean it can't be enjoyed on any level (though in this case...I love the cutscene right up until the first line of dialogue, then it's take it or leave it.)

You'll just have to make room for the fact that people have different tastes and different standards. Some ask more.

I'm happy to diagnose the reasons at length but somehow I suspect it won't go over well.

The lab scene- I love how the screen still has the "Help" button on it from the standard menu art.
In-Mission Techroom Script v0.4 - See information from the techroom in game
Simple Animation Script v0.2 - Make your own on-screen animations for FSO
Visible Waypoints Script - Makes waypoints visible in-game

It is about the wording. Since it is singular (favourite cutscene), it implies that each voter should select one (1) cutscene that he/she likes best. No one's stopping anyone from making another poll with a plural. You could call it "Which cutscenes do you like?" or something. As far as I can see, people could vote as many options as they wanted in such a poll. But not in this one.

My personal opinion on the matter, that is.

It's difficult to me to choose only one. I think I'll go with Ancient 1.

"Truth" is the opinion of the majority which it can enforce on the minority. Members of the minority have two choices: join the bandwagon or think. Those who do not fall into line will be brutally crushed.
The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

I think I like the intro to FS1 above the rest, simply because I thought it was very good at conveying Lt. Ash's fear.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Did you see a rant? Did you even read the thread? NGTM-1R delivered the payload of truth this time around, my friend.

I have delivered no rant here.

My opinions, believe it or not, are perfectly well-ordered. I only strive to reach down into the mist and elevate a few others to my lofty Olympian heights.

Yeah, but you always sound like such a douchebag when you try to do that.
