In this new series, Lucas "CuHnadian" Raycevick looks at tutorials in video games and their importance; examining both good and bad examples in a variety of genres, it's easy to see why they are so rarely made correctly.
Nothing worse than a bad tutorial. Just awful.
* I like games that have tutorial missions be the side stuff that you CAN do,but don't HAVE to do.
I'm fine with a tutorial as long as it doesn't become too long of a tutorial and take up most of the game.
I say that if your tutorial is llonger than 5 minutes and I can't figure it out with actual gameplay, you've done something wrong
There's no way some games could have a 5 minute tutorial.
I have no problem with tutorials at all. I always do them. There has been times where fighting games I started had too many mechanics and by the time I got to the last one I forgot the others. Blazblu does it to me every time. The dialog is just so long.
