    Most of the times I pay attention to the story. The one exception with this is most FPS games.

    I've only done that once, and that game was Dead Nation.

    I can't skip cutscenes. I need to know what's going on. What's the use of playing otherwise? What are you getting out of it?

    Any of the Call of Duties. The storylines are just a waste of time.

    I tend to do this on games I've rented or borrowed off friends, knowing the games aren't mine makes me less interested in the story...

    Exactly DJ. No use playing a game if you aren't taking notice of the story.

    At least you got to finish your game. I was 1 mission off finishing it on hard mode and then the next day I went to play it needed some massive update that never seemed to download.

    Anyway, my game was Deus EX. What the hell was that shit about. Couldn't understand it and didn't really care.

    I rarely if ever skip cut scenes. They would have to be pretty bad or maybe just boring for me to do so and usually I'll just stop playing instead, unless the gameplay is freakin amazing.

    I never skip the cut scenes. I'm a big fan of a games story so I always try to figure out whats going on. However, if I have to replay certain games multiple times for trophies then I might skip them depending on if I liked the game or not.

    I always play the game to know what's going on with the story, otherwise there's no point. After that, I just rush through the levels if a trophy is to be earned.

    Yorda.

    I rarely ever skip cutscenes - even if the story is forgettable. They usually give you info on what you're doing in the next part, or they explain why you've suddenly gone from a gorgeous jungle location, to a cookie cutter warehouse location.

    Once I've finished the story, on the other hand, I'll skip them on another playthrough.

    i don't skip stories cuz i respect my art
    besides, part of my major ocd stretches into needing the story to be able to fit into my mind...if i miss even 1 second i have to rewind and go back...but you can't do that in games, and what's worse are the ones that don't even pause (!!!) making me irreparably hate whoever messes me up

    as for not knowing the story, i forget what at the moment but there are just some things i can't quite understand and trying to ocd organize it in my mind while the rest is still going...yeh, i'm liable to miss important things (which in my opinion, of course, is everything)
    Add me if you want (soulless94), as long as you don't randomly delete me for no reason
    If I randomly add you, it's because you're awesome...wanted an answer? There it is. =]
