This game is stuffed full of them. At first it's like "press left-right-left-right" then suddenly it's "Press the F key! But not yet; you have to wait until the rapidly shrinking circle is inside the other circle!" And it sometimes makes you do that a number of times before going "Mash the E button now too late you're dead!". It's practically impossible to get past some of those on the first go. I had to do one with a wolf in a cave about 10 times before finally getting past it. Most times, it wasn't clear what I'd done wrong. So fucking frustrating.
Don't worry the next generation of games will have automatic quick time events where you can't lose!
The unbridled power of our new console is what makes Cutscenes™ possible. This stunning, never-before-seen technology anticipates what the player will do and automatically does it for them, doing away with the inconvenient quick-time events of yesteryear!
