Gaming Guides


l 7SIN Sasori l
I was wondering what everyone's position was on gaming guides. I use them all the time, but I know alot of people against the use of guides because it "takes away from the gaming experience".

Please explain why or why not.

If you are really stuck, then I don't see a reason not to use them. Plus, some guides give a lot of info on the game. The guide for Gran Turismo 4 has a lot of information on all of the auto maufacturers featured in the game and tells their history. That's very interesting and gives even more depth. I think they are a fine addition to a game. I usually don't buy them though because I don't feel like spending 15 more dollars right after I shelled out 50 for the game itself lol.


If you are using a guide for a how-to on everything in the game, then I don't really see a point in it. There are a lot of guides that do actually add depth to the gameplay, and I have no problem with those.

Sometimes the only way to get the most out of a game is through a guide because a lot of times you won't think of everything you can do and will otherwise miss out on something.

But some hard core people will not play with the use of a guide. I will do my best without the guide but will use one if neccessary.


Using Guides for games are not bad at all! especially when you really are in a part that is hard or when your stuck or sumtin...
