I for one don't mind the occasional QTE so long as it's so far and few and is absolutely necessary for the game play and story progression (like RE4).

How can a QTE ever be absolutely necessary though? Any cutscene could simply go on without it, having the hero do whatever silly ostentatious thing they want him to do without player input.

The only time QTE was necessary was Dragon's Lair and Sega CD games. Those days are gone. So too should be the days of QTE.

They should make more games like the swordfight in Kirby Super Star. Now that took skill!

Carmilla's QTE was one of the most heart-pumping moments in my gaming life. True story.

Everything comes full circle

It reminded me of how Kratos pummels his enemies in the GoW games, they had my heart pumping blood too.

Carmilla's QTE? That ridiculously violent thing where Gabriel keeps killing her even after she's dead?

Fun fact: Gabriel stabs the stake of the CC into Carmilla & snaps it off in her chest.. yet it is still seen attached to the weapon in the next chapter

And it's still shown to be broken as the indicator for the loading screen at the bottom.

I mean, once he breaks the stake off in Carmilla, the upgrades menu shows it broken. Storywise, the stake's broken. In game though, it stays the same for gameplay purposes, since it's part of the finisher for Vampires.

I see tons of CV 1,2,3 and 4 in LoS and i think Cox did a great job bringing the feel of the classics into the new age of gaming. I can say this while I don't even particularly like 3D games. Whiney fans need to stop actively disliking and accept the franchise is moving forward.

I wouldn't say it moving forwards but it is definitely moving in a direction that some fans aren't comfortable with.
