Skip intro?
« on: July 12, 2010, 08:54:58 AM »
Is there any way to skip the intro? I don't really need to see it every time I start the game.

Sometimes I have to click twice but yes that'll get you past it.

Ok that works, but I would like to suggest that you only run the intro once, not every time the game starts. And perhaps additonally when someone starts a new game :)

Pretty much every game that is on the market has an intro that plays unless you skip it.

I think it is spread though, I know quite some games who only plays intro first time you start the game and when you specifically asks for it at the main menu. I am not too bothered by either  :)

The only ones that bother me are ones that you can't skip, like some games you have to sit through half a dozen logos and stuff for a couple of minutes every single time.  It's like, "Oh hey I'm gonna turn on this game and then go make dinner while it loads the main menu."

Well either an intro that automatically plays or if you just leave it sitting it'll play one.  Pretty much every PS3 or Wii game I've picked up in the last few months starts with an intro unless you button mash to skip it to get to the main menu.

I like watching intros, but only once or twice. Having to re-watch something over and over just gets pointless and boring. Which is why it's great to have a skip option. Although it did take me quite a while to figure out that clicking the mouse skips. I was expecting like hitting the enter key or pressing ESC. But as long as the option to skip is there, I'm happy.

Me too but probably just an old habit from doing that to skip the opening song during the older games.
