Skipping text?

default Skipping text?

Post by CarbonIce on 21/06/15, 08:45 pm

So, I'm having an internal dilemma right now and I just want to hear what you guys would do in my situation.

In a game where you can skip text you've already read, would you skip through it? I mean ...it feels like its part of the story, you should read it over again. But in games where the options are spanned out so far apart from each other and you've read the text and know what's happening, would you still skip ahead? 

It feels so wrong but I dislike reading the same text over and over again. 

So, your opinion?

I think it depends on your memory and of when was your last playthrough...

I always skip the text I've already read when trying other options. I have a very good memory for remembering such things as a VN text !
However, I still re-read the moments I particularly liked xD

Also, isn't it enjoyable when you're skipping through the game and it stops for a single sentence ? It's like you've found the little 1% of the game you still haven't seen !!

I'm one of those Otogamers who enjoy finishing a game 100% and replaying with Skip option just to enjoy how the game doesn't stop for unread text...since I've read everything Laughing dududu

I particularly don't skip the texts. I think every moment is important when reading it (even if it's again) I agree, re-reading it's kinda boring, but I still read the texts. mou~

Sometimes I just wanna skip'em and go to the point I want to reach, but I always end up reading 80% of the VN dialogues.Ehehe~


As @Fairth-san said, if you have a good memory it isn't wrong to skip... (I never really thought about this... Just thought about it now.)Bert sweating

I don't have a good memory but I do skip read text. If I don't then I'd never be able to progress, I'd just be stuck rereading the same lines over and over. If I really like something, I don't want it to end, so I file it away and don't touch it for a while. Then I forget.

I would probably skip the text if I've already read it. My memory is really good so, if I don't I'd reach a point where I could recite the scene. Though I don't skip all the time, like if there's a scene I really liked I might not skip it but those are pretty rare. 

Still it's your choice.

If I played the game before and I can skip the text I surely skip it. Sitting through it all feels like a waste of time to me personally. I usually check if the "read text skipable" kind of stuff is enabled so I don't miss new stuff.

If I read it before I skip it unless there's a scene I really REALLY like because even if the game has something like 'recollection gallery' I like watching the scene from 'inside' the game.

I generally skip the text if it's to collect the different endings of the same route. Also depends on the game, for example, I don't skip a lot of Hakuouki because 90% of the gameplay is reading texts anyway, but for games like Wand of Fortune, I skip the hell out of all I can skip, because the non-skippable part are tedious and time-consuming enough.

Same. smile
Once I have done the first route I usually skip everything till I got to new a route(guy story) that I didn't do before. Reading them all over is so boring and tiring not mention they take so much time!
