More Cutscenes, More Gaming Or Cutscenes Which Actually Can Be Played

Questions that arose from the comments my brother threw at me when he started MGS 4.

What are your thoughts on cutscenes?

My brother recently started playing MGS4 and when I came home he was not happy about the extended cutscenes. His reasoning was that he paid good money for gameplay and not cinematics.

Now with me being of a film background, I loved the long cutscenes in MGS4, but then again, I am not someone who would be classified as a hardcore gamer.

My interest really lies in that in between where the cutscenes are actually playable. What are everyones thoughts?
