While the story and cutscenes in The Outer World are pretty awesome, some of you guys might want to skip them, either because you don't really care for the story, or maybe you've already seen it. There's an option for skipping cutscenes in the game already, so here's what you need to do to skip cutscenes in The Outer World:
PS4: Hold the X button while the cutscene is playing.
Xbox One: Press the A button when the cutscene is playing.
PC: Hit the Esc button while the cutscene is playing.
And that's all there is to skipping cutscenes in The Outer World. Just keep in mind that you won't be able to view them again at a later point unless you make a new character and save file. Alternatively you can just watch it on YouTube if you want to.
