What are your opinions on video game strategy guides / guidebooks?


With video gaming becoming ever more popular through the ages, it's hard to be stuck on a particular level, or scratch your head when confronting a particular boss. Do you turn to the strategy guide, which you've paid $20 for, or simply go to the internet to have all your questions answered? Are video game guides in the book form now completely useless? Do video game guides need to stop being published in paper due to costs, and availability?

    Totally agreed. I think the best example of video game guide hands down is Nintendo Power, the US magazine which was originally aimed at the NES/SNES, alongside Virtual Boy, Game Boy and later on would expand to the N64 and up.
