Do you read official game lore?

  1. Every bit! You have to know a game's backstory

    I only read heavily into lore for the dark souls franchise, it is just so easy to get lost in the lore

    I'm more familiar with the characters than the actual storyline, usually I just look for humor

    Very rarely, because very rarely do games actually start off with dialogue that makes you want to peek round the corner to see what's next. It's always some boring long winded overblown focus on details that nobody cares about, kinda like a lot of my posts XD But seriously, I don't care if character x hasn't seen character y in 10 yrs, unless there's some big reveal that ties into my gaming or immerses me.

    I believe the story/lore is the most important aspect of game because when i play a game and i feel addicted to learning the backstories or hidden secrets i know its and amazing game

    Most of the time yes. Sadly, there are games that are so shallow and don't care about the lore. You either just drive to a destination or just shoot somebody.

    Then again, there are those games that are so invested in lore they make money out of books regarding the lore. A fine example is Warhammer 40k.

    I always read the story because you have to appreciate the devs who make the story. I don't really like a game without backstory or just mindless PvP game.

    I love lore it's the best part of a game. And bad story = bad game imo. The context for why you're doing what you're doing just enriches the experience.
