30 Days of Gaming (16): Game With the Best Cutscenes

Blizzard has such an awesome cinematic department. Now, the above is a pre-rendered scene, but the magic doesn't stop there. Below is an in-game cinematic using Blizzard's Galaxy Editor that comes with Starcraft 2.

The production value of these cinematics is damn near unmatched in gaming, from sound to visuals, to editing. Not to mention the story takes itself pretty seriously, and in turn has some pretty cool moments, unlike a typical console shooter game that seems to just have a story designed around getting from set piece to set piece. Below is another pre-rendered cinematic, but it is probably one of my favorite cinematics in gaming. Ever.
