When was the last time you bought a strategy guide for one of your games?

If you did buy one recently, which game was it for? How often did you use the guide while playing? Did you find it helpful or rather pointless?

I think I bought a strategy guide for Summon Night: Swordcraft Story 2, for the GBA, when it was released. Yeah, loads of years ago, lol.

I bought a Gamepro mag or was it EGM? I forgot.
It had the guide and walkthrough for MGS1 back in the day, it was immensely helpful. Well, i was a kid back then, but still.

RE6's Limited Edition Guide (came with some embroidered patches I thought looked neat at the time)

Didn't actually use the guide much other than to locate emblems. Pretty much a waste of money, along with RE6.

When I bought the .hack//G.U. Trilogy about a year ago, it came with the strategy guide for Vol. 1. I wasn't looking for the strategy guide, I just managed to stumble upon a really good deal like that.

Oh my goodness you made me remember fond memories.

I haven't bought a strategy guide since I can remember. I don't know the exact one but I do remember owning a Final Fantasy 7 guide.

The complete Versus guide for Pokemon Gold & Silver. I wanted it for the pokedex in the back. I still have it, the FFVII guide a friend gave me, and the Ocarina of Time guide my mom got with the N64 and OoT one christmas. They're the only guides I've owned. I love them for the artwork and often terrible advice, especially in the case of FFVIIs guide.
