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?
