Anyone feel the same way? Tons of games have collectibles or items you should read to get more out of the story, but I absolutely hate reading them. Oh look a journal page, let me stop playing the game to read this. It's just not fun for me and I would rather have story be brought to me in a more innovative way. Just got bored so I felt like posting this. I mean, it is a game, why not think of a more creative way to do this instead of "here, read this couple of paragraphs"

I hate when games don't have subtitles on by default. Worse if there is an opening scene before the options.

I like reading. It helps flesh out stories in an otherwise visual heavy medium. I enjoy picking up things that then give some backstory or "flavor" to the world.

Otherwise all we would have is games where you follow the glowing line to the next checkpoint. Killing all the bad guys between.

I love reading notes and journals in games. The books in Skyrim are a little too much and I prefer when they use smaller notes like in Fallout 3.

If the reading is really boring crap like dragon age or fable I don't even bother.

But some of the readings like the old RE games, and Skyrim can pleasent.

Do you hate cause you have to call your mom in to read it to you and explain what it means?

If I want to read... I'll pick up a book.
When I want to blow things up, fight monsters, take on akuma, etc... then I play video games.

Overall I agree
