Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare received bad reviews for its use of the quick time event (QTE), which allows players to interact with cut scenes with the simple tap of a button. When the protagonist and antagonist (Kevin Spacey) attend a funeral for a fallen solider, the player is prompted to pay his respects by holding a button.
