    Frick, I feel this
    I had a hint guide with me as I played through this thing
    When I finished the anchor puzzle and realized I only solved like 3-4 puzzles without any sort of guide, I figured I'd just watch a playthrough instead

    The old version of Ao Oni that had the untranslated puzzle in it and straight up came with a readme file that had the solution because the guy translating it had no idea what else to do with it.

    >buy guide
    >it's actually a magazine filled to the brim with vidya content
    >lots of new game talks, releases, reviews, cheat codes, fanart
    Playing games with a guide besides were comfy and I'm tired of pretending it wasn't

      You bring up salty memories of back in the day when I bought a stratgey guide for Bomberman 64 that totally omitted the Rainbow Palace and only hinted that there was a sixth area.

        I used to own guides for plenty of Final Fantasy games and the one for X-2 was written in such a way that you would not get 100% on your file if you followed it.

    I refuse to believe that anyone could beat something like Ultima 2 without a guide.

    All of LucasArts games were made as cryptic as possible just to sell manuals. Stingy israelites.

      Sam and Max was easy IMO. Maybe even *too* easy, especially compared to the MI games.

        You need to use an item in an especific time of the day in a certain level, in a certain place to progress. No hint whatsoever.

          >towel thaws a couple minutes later and drops it

          Some Japanese guy: Yes this makes a lot more sense than just throwing the piggy bank

    Every Myst game. I love their aesthetics and music, but their puzzles were ridiculous

      I need to play these. I want to make a point-and-click and need some inspiration for puzzles. From what I’ve heard, the Myst games have pretty good lateral thinking puzzles.

        Yeah, they do. If you are planning to play one of these, play Riven. This game is a masterclass in showing you how to tie the puzzles with the game's world. I hear that a 3d remaster edition will be released soon.
        Another good one is Drowned God. This one may have its fair share of problems, but its a very unique and a batshit insane experience.
        Riven and Drowned God are, in my opinion, the best point and click puzzle games you will ever play

    This game taught me the true meaning of bullshit.

    The original Metal Gear without a guide is NES Zelda 2nd Quest levels of bullshit with which walls you need to break.

    One of the Black Mirror games has a puzzle that is unsolvable because of a typo on the localized script. You have to go into the game files and change a few letters in the script in order to get the word the game is looking for to appear.

      Remind me of Revolution 60, the game made by that troony in disguise Brianna Wu.
      In one part there is a staircase and you climb it by typing a word on the screen. I got stuck for like an hour because the fricking moron typed the word with an extra invisible "space".
      The word was, for example:
      >escape
      And the only way to actually pass that part was by writing:
      >escape
      Looks the same? Well, it isn't. That space after the word made me insane for a moment.
