This is okay for games like Skyrim with more everyday characters, but even then there are times where it just seems "gamey".
Riven is like a fine work of art that climaxes with that famous speech. It has to be *perfect* in that sense and you just can't convey the gravitas of a character like Gehn with animated cgi imo. Kickstarter to get Charles Dance maybe?
There are about 3 hours of video sequences in riven, itd require alot of resources to do this with all the detail.

That's what it will take. Do they have the know-how to do that? I don't know. They do though have ridiculous amounts of being particular.... like for individual sticks and book covers...
Look you're right, the acting in Mass Effect and so on is wooden and terrible compared to the effect that Riven needs. And I'm scared as f*** that it won't look any good too. But realistically, I think it's the only way that they would be able to manage incorporating them without reshooting the sequences. And unless they did get someone like Charles Dance, you're not going to be able to find someone to replace their performance anyway.There are about 3 hours of video sequences in riven, itd require alot of resources to do this with all the detail.
There's 3 hours of animation. That includes all of the levers, magcars, doors and Wahrks. Of actual people there's about 3 minutes of Atrus, 3 minutes of Cho, 2 minutes of Catherine. I guess one thing in their advantage is that there's really only about 15 minutes of footage with Gehn!
