Interesting idea, but do you really think you could understand the extreme width and depth of the LBP system without some guidance? The design of the editor made it a necessity.

Agreed. Plus, you get a trophy for finishing each tutorial I think.

i have to admit, for most games that have them mandatory i hate. The thing i like about LBP tut i that you unlock a ton of items by doing them.

It needed a tutorial,kinda like the complicated fighting game that is UFC.
Only annoys me when they put them on first person shooters.

LBP is a tough one, without the tutorials you really would be lost amongst the amazing depth that the games creation can offer, but with them you do tend to lose focus a bit and end up forgetting half of it by the time you have finished all of the tutorials(Or at least that's what I did).

I do think though that LBP makes the tutorials a lot more fun that some other games do, Stephen Fry and the unlocking of items do add to the fun of having to sit through a tutorial.

Sure it would be good if they weren't always mandatory, but then again, I'd rather be able to know everything straight up from tutorials than get to a point where I don't know what to do, have to quit what I'm doing, go watch the tutorial, then go back to what I was doing, just more convenient(IMHO).
