Technical mumbo jumbo: this is not a scientific or rigorous poll and is only intended to capture the general consensus of Joystiq readers. Results will be posted approximately one week after the poll is opened for votes. Sure, you probably could hack this poll if you worked at it, but it's more fun for everyone if poll results accurately reflect the opinions of all readers, so please refrain from tampering with poll results.
Loads of time, cash and effort go into developing cutscenes in games, but do gamers watch them? Do you see them as integral to the game, or annoyances that slow down the experience?
[Update: fixed poll width]
