Just like the title says. QTEs, in my opinion, are overused, used unnecessarily, rarely add anything to game play, and can interrupt the flow of game play.
QTEs during cutscenes are even worse. Instead of watching the cutscene you are trying to pay attention to when the prompt appears. Cutscenes used to provide a momentary respite; a time to stretch your fingers, crack your knuckles, take a sip of your preferred beverage and take pride in your accomplishment. Now? You sit there like a moron waiting for a pointless prompt lest you die in the cutscene and have to start it all over again. This is QTE anxiety. We don't even know which games they are going to be in so we are all sitting there waiting for a prompt which may or may not even appear.
It makes gaming feel more like a chore than entertainment.
Feel free to agree with me below.
