Do you skip tutorials?

Post by TheHidden01 on Mon May 12, 2014 2:46 pm

Gamasutra recently ran a developer op-ed on getting players to read in-game text. It was focused more on character dialogue than on tutorials, but it got me thinking about the seemingly hopeless task of designing a tutorial for the millions of players who probably ignore tutorials.

Veteran MMO players may have even more incentive to skip tutorials than most, as the genre's presentation and mechanics haven't changed much at all over the past decade or more. So, how about it, Massively readers? Do you skip MMO tutorials? If not, what's the last good one you learned from?


The Dragoon King;

"Let your character be your weapon, your fellow guild members be your armour, your blood thirst be your helmet, and use your boots to make a stand. After every battle allow your shield to be your faith in one another, and return from battle either carrying it or resting upon it."

Yeah pretty much, if i know it's the same old theme park MMO then i don't bother with reading the ''tips!'' page or whatever feature they have for new players. If it's an MMO that's a bit more special then the others (sandbox) then i'll pay more attention as i'm not all that familiar with the genre itself.
