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.
