Is using a wiki considerate as cheating?
What about strategy guides?

When or in what situation is considerate as cheating?

Do you use wikis or strategy guides?

>Do you use wikis or strategy guides?
Ofc, I don't want spend another 100hr for shitty jrpg
>>
depends entirely on the game
I use the wiki often for Binding of Isaac and Monster Hunter but I would consider it taboo to use it for Zelda or Bioshock
in the end, it's down to the player's preference
>>
>>323216298
Why would it be considering cheating?
>>
>>323216298
A better question is who fucking cares?
>>
I always find using a wiki makes the game seem smaller and for every tidbit you take from them it makes the game that much less interesting.
>>
Getting help is not cheating, however, that makes you a huge casual triple faggot.
>>
>>323216298
Right now you're seeking an answer to a question, but instead of figuring out yourself using your own knowledge/skill or even acquiring more, you choose the easy route of asking someone else, this is your true self.

Is there porn of Wikipedia-tan?
>>
>>323216298
If I have to get item X from Y and I don't know/remember the place or the game hasn't a ingame library to look it up I won't waste my time by guessing where it could be found.
Time is much to precious for obviously boring tasks.
>>
>>323216298
It's only cheating if you go there for shit like optimizing your game, instead of doing what you're supposed to do and only look up walkthroughs and strategy guides when you're fucking stuck.

Optimize in New Game+, not to make it easier.
>>
if I get stuck for more than 20 minutes, I check up what to do online, which never happens because what game has difficult puzzles these days?
>>
>>323219126
I dont have to optimize, I just play on easy mode.
>>
>>323216298
If it's a puzzle game, yes.
If not, then no.

If it's just to find out how to go through story routes, yes but who gives a shit?

I still sometimes had to use a guide for la mulana

Not difficult, but fun and short.

Thanks for fucking up your entire UI for one shitty puzzle that is literally only used for claw doors
