    -(the event horizon of a black hole that leads to
    I was talking to one of my friends today, and he said that he doesn't like using strategy guides for games because he thinks it's cheating. Personally, I use online strategy guides all the time, for when I get stuck. And on RPG's, if I didn't use a strategy guide, there's tons of extra shit I would probably miss.

    Opinions plz.

    I personally think guides take the fun out of games, especially RPGs. You miss a lot of shit but whats the fun in being directed where to go. I only use www.gamefaqs.com when I'm completely and utterly frustrated because I'm stuck on a certain part. But I don't use them regularly.

    Strategy guides, or walkthroughs? Strategy guides are good, walkthroughs tend to suck the fun out of games.

    Yes, they are cheating. But sometimes you gotta do it.

    I feel that if it gets to the point where you are about to give up on the game, because of a place you are stuck at, you may have to.

    I use walkthroughs occasionally but only with adventure games and only when I'm totally dumbfounded.

    Yes, someone else is basically telling you what to do.

    Of course using them is cheating. I use gamefaqs.com when I'm stuck though, but try not to.
