I always read the manual before playing. These days though, and since I mainly buy 3DS games which have primarily digital manuals, I tend to just dive into the game. If I'm stuck with the controls or something, I'll check the digital manual.

I rarely read manuals anymore. Then again, there is barely anything in the manuals these days except the controls which can easily be found from in-game tutorials or menus.

They just don't make them like they use to where manuals were over 20 pages long.
Manuals just aren't the same as they used to be in the old days. The PS2/Xbox/Game Cube era was the last one that gave thick booklets about the game. Now they are typically just a few pages. First page tells you how to put the disc in and what the controls are, second page tells you about what's on the screen during gameplay, and the third pages tells you no more than a couple things about the game. Sometimes there isn't even a third page. I believe game companies started doing it to save money, not because there wasn't a demand for them. New games still cost $60, but because of the small game manual they make a bigger profit from each purchase.
