If you like video games as much as I do, you know the unique brand of frustration that comes from trying for hours to beat a certain mission or section with no luck. What can you do about it, though. Well, you can look for some tips.
Now, in my opinion, there are two types of gamers. There are those that play until they’re really stuck and then look up one thing. There are also those who want to know everything about a game before they ever play, so that they don’t miss anything at all ever and never do get stuck. Depending on which category you fall into, there are different things that you can do.
If you’re in the first position and only need help with one thing, your best bet is to either ask a friend who plays the game or look up that specific issue on the Internet. There are plenty of FAQ’s and walkthroughs online, after all. The risk you run is simply seeing more information than you really wanted to know about the game, as you look for the specific problem.
If you’re of the latter player type, you have to know everything. So, yes, search online for answers. You can also buy guidebooks for many different games, although guides for new releases may not be out immediately. Of course, you can also get together with friends and compare notes. In fact, you might even be able to watch your friend to see how they tackle a certain mission. In any case, regardless of how you play, you’ll have a lot more fun when you aren’t permanently stuck.
