I must admit I wouldnt have finished one game without the help of these lovely people who go out of their way to assist us dunces.

I try without a walkthrough but never seem to get very far before I need help.

Also by looking at the walkthrough I can tell if it is a game I would enjoy

Say, who are the people who write the walkthroughs, anyway? Are they the programmers themselves?

Often, they are just folks who like to play the game, and are good at it, and write the walk throughs to help others out--

I am playing RHEM at the present time and it is the hardest game I have ever played. I am using the WT all the time or I wouldnt be able to play it at all. As I mentioned in my email for help, it is like a constant maze that never ends. I would be hopelessly lost at all times in this game. I also think the puzzles are very hard. I dont believe a WT takes away from any adventure game, it makes the game more pleasurable for me. smile ET

Actually, Douglas, one of best walkthrough writers on the entire internet is our own webmistress, Marita (aka MaG). I can't imagine how she can get through a game, and get the walkthrough written, at the speed of light, in spite of all the other things she has to do to keep the forum running smoothly... praise

Marita is amazing. She sees things right away that I don't see until I've looked at the same thing about twenty times.

Personally, it sepends on my mood as to whether or not I use a walkthrough. I enjoy MaG's walkthroughs and a few others because of the way they are written... more like a comentary instead of just dry directions (such as go here --- move left 7X ---turn right once --- shake your leg and whistle "Dixie" etc...)... For me thier are almost like having a playing partner.

Well I have to admit I do use a walkthrough. Marita writes the most wonderful and helpful w/ts and I still get stuck.

Couldn't game without one, otherwise I would still be on my first game wave

I use a walkthrough when I am stuck.Doesnt make any sense to me not to be able to finish a game,After all they are supposed to be fun,and it wouldnt be any fun to have to quit a game because I am hopelessly stuck.
