What games are you playing, Verno, with QTEs?

I mean, I guess the very last thing you do in Dishonored is arguably a QTE, and maybe you can argue that taking down a brute in SR3 was, but that's one button. In Dishonored it made perfect sense.

But it's been years, and I mean years, since I've seen games like the ones that were in the late era of the original Xbox where you'd be a superhero falling down a hole and have "Y" flash on the screen and need to hit, then "X", then "B", all in quick sequence like a damn rhythm game.

Like, seriously. I have not seen that in a game in years. Maybe I'm playing the wrong (err... right) games, but QTEs seem pretty much dead to me, but some people still complain. It reminds me of old people complaining about how much nu-metal sucks even though it's so far dead that no one even remembers any of the bands anymore. There are new things to hate.

Farcry 3 used QTEs a decent amount. Aside from that, I can't think of any recent games that do.

Doesnt the new Tomb Raider use them a fair ammount?
