It really depends on the game. In some games the dialogue is essential, in others it’s totally skippable.
If Im engaged in the story and its interesting then yes.
I tend to skip over side quest dialogue no matter what game i play. With MMOs i just skim through the text. With single player linear games i don't skip anything The problem I tend to find with some dialogue is that it's uninteresting. When you talk to the bartender and he tells you he has a rat problem in the basement....you kinda already know what the deal is so you kinda lose interest in what he has to say since you already know what he'll say more or less. Now if that same bartender told you he had Like a vampire club in the basement then it would keep me engaged.
I read it first, and then listen to the delivery. If voice acting isn't very good, I'll usually just read the dialogue and move on and occasionally listen to it for the key points.
It depends on how good the story and voice acting is. I usually like to listen the first go around and then after that I'll skip the cut scenes unless it has something interesting to watch again.
I've started playing Disco Elysium, and I will definitely listen to all the dialogues.
it depends, sometimes the voiceover is too slow, then I just read and move on
