what's a QTE?
Quick-Time Event. Popularized by Sega's Shenmue and originally used in Sega's (correct me if I'm wrong ) Time Traveler, the concept is of a cinematic that reaches a critical progression, at which point the player must act in order to continue the action.

In theory, it's not entirely different from the full-motion-video games that were terribly prevalent throughout the late '90s (Foxhunt?). The idea was better refined during the Shenmue series.
