Have you ever used a game guide?
And how useful was it? what was your experience of using one.
I have purchased/used a Brady Games strategy guides before. The Game was Star Ocean III: Till The End of Time. It was quite useful.
I've never used a physical guide, but gamefaqs.com was one of my favorite resources. Mostly I used it after completing a game, in order to earn all the unlockables, but every once and a while, a game would become so difficult or frustrating that it wasn't fun anymore, and then I would concede and look up the walk through. I've always thought of them as aids, rather than guides. I could never understand the people who bought the strategy guide with the game. Where is the fun if you're just following a map the whole way?
I think that's a good point, but many people would also go on the internet and follow walkthroughs step by step. I think that too is a shame to see in modern gaming. However most games don't need a guide, and exist only to make a quick buck ^^
Very rarely do I use them, but I like to collect them depending on how much cash I've got to spend. The World of Warcraft: Cataclysm guide has helped me a bit, and it's good reading material. But I could do with more lore in it to help me ^^
i always use guides, but not the ones you buy in the store, they get outdated before you even buy them. the best guides are the one that get updated constantly, because we all know games get patches, dlc, expansions all the time now.

I'm just curious if you have ever used it, and how successful you have been in trade with it. I got a hamster from it before, but it was the most untamed thing ever and I couldn't handle it. So my friend took it from me. I had paid a small amount for it. Now, I got two mice from there (still trying...

Is there still a need for paperback strategy guides for games?The internet has seemingly made printed guides irrelevant. Are there any benefits to actually paying the cash for a physical book?
