I either skim through or head straight to the summary looking for relevant  information.This is because most of the time the quest text is generically written and more poorly constructed than your average MMORPG.com forum post hehe.

When I first started playing MMORPGs I used to read everything but that was long ago.

It depends on the game, or rather...the type of game. Asian ones I generally don't read through and just click accept, most games I do read through though.

Hehe. :)  Awesome +1

 

In SWTOR and GW2 I'd watch the cut scenes 90% of the time.  In WoW and Tera I'd just pick up the quests without reading.  In retrospect SWTOR does have a pretty decent story.  Awwe, I miss Star Wars.

Mostly clicking "accept". There are some situations when reading is reccomended though.

I always read/listen to the quest giver. I'm interested in the story lines of the games I play. LotRO had some of the most well-written quests I have seen. It was a joy to read them.

It depends on the game, if there is something in the quest text or cutscene that is absolutely necessary to completing the quest, of course I pay attention, but for most, it's just generic nonsense that doesn't matter anyhow, why bother with it?

Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
Now Playing: None
Hope: None

If its my first play through, yes.

 

If its a situation where I'm repeating content I've already done while leveling an alt, achievement whoring, etc, then I just click accept.

That drive me nuts. I liked reading all the quest text in WoW...and my ex-friend (for other more personal reasons he isn't a friend anymore)...but he'd accept a quest and run off and complete it. Then say "wow you are so slow, come on and catch up"...and run off to the next quest.

 

He also took EVERY item that dropped. And if it was a roll the dice item, he'd need it even if he couldn't use it...and then he'd give me the white and junk items...

TL:DR  but I agree wholeheartedly.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I'll read the first 10 or so quests and if it isn't interesting or concise then I will probably skip the majority of the rest of them. Once you've read some fantasy quest text, you've read them all and generally is a waste of time. I have to absolutely love the game lore to go out of my way to read it. Example-Skyrim I've read a lot of the various books in the game before building a library for them.

Often quest text are uninteresting because of the format. NPC: BLAHBLAHBLAHYAMMERYAMMERYAMMER PC:ok... ok.. ok... Give me the job. But when it is a conversation with multiple dialog choices (Neocron) or even fully voiced (SWTOR) I'm more likely to read/listen to it all...well atleast the first time through.

Walls of text bore me to death. That's the main reason I skip them in these forums. But when playing a mmorpg for the first time I tend to read a majority of the quest dialog. I have to admit though I only do this with mmorpgs that originate from a English speaking developer as I think a lot of "meaning" gets lost in translation from non English based mmorpgs.

If the "I read or listen to the quest" category was actually more than the "I just accept" one.I would have laughed and said this poll was a load of bullshit..

 

I read and listen to every quest.What I always realize while doing this is, the people whizzing by me,zooming in to open the quest dialogue to accept,then promptly zooming off to the quest marker..GO GO GO GO GO

 

its sad really.People say MMO's must have stories etc,then they dont even bother with them.

In times there was no arrow, highlights and map markers showing me the way - I was reading them.

I typically don't bother reading quest text.

Personally I find most stories in MMOs to be shallow and pedantic.

No, but seriously, most of the stories in MMOs today are just dull and unimaginative.  Besides, as others have said, it's not like it really matters because it will haven no effect whether or not you bother reading the quest.

The only exception I can think of was actually Dragon Nest, because a LOT of the quest text in that game can be pretty hilarious.

90% or more, yes, I read the quest text or watch the cutscene. I bought the game to participate in it, not rush to the end.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

I usually read all quest text for the first hour or so of play.  I'll decide to skim through it or continue reading depending on the quality of the text and whether it interests me or not.  Most of the time it's just pointless babble that amounts to nothing but telling you to go kill 10 boars.  Sometimes I'll just resort to only reading the objectives if the quest descriptions are really horrible.  Oh yeah, I also completely skip it if I've already done the quest on another character for example.  Guess it just depends on the situation really.
