I. Introduction
Fatal Frame is one of those games where exploring is key, and in turn 
exploring will reward you generously by giving you pieces of the story, more
items, more spirit points (allows you to upgrade). However, with this comes
frustration, if not due to just some ghosts but some things are well hidden.
It is also one of those games where you are timed (in the sense the game clocks
the amount of time you put into the game) and gives you a rank. This is what
this guide will do - give you a basic outline for both types of people. If you
are a first time player and want to just know where to go for key things and
explore yourself and get all the spirit points you want, find all the items
yourself, be surprised by all ghosts and everything like that, or if you have
played it before and just want to know key points to do a quick playthrough or
the like. That being said, this lists no hidden ghosts (unless absolutely
required to pass), no items, no scraps, no clues, nothing about the story.
It doesn't even list attacking ghosts. This is for a few reasons, if you've
played you probably know how to beat them or know where to find them, they
appear randomly and there are tons of other resources abailable to find out
how to beat them.

I've seen people beat the game under an hour, I have never been able to do
that. My best time is 2 hours 30 minutes. 
This should work for both xbox and ps2 versions.

A) Quick faq
Q: Why such a barebones walkthrough?
A: When I first played there was no walkthrough that didn't have spoilers or
let me explore myself, which sucked, because quite frankly if I'm stuck at one
part, I just want a solution for that. I don't want to be hand fed what will
happen or where exactly to go for one item, especially in a game like this or
osilent hill. I hope that you think the same way, it is the best experience in
in the world to go through a whole survival horror game without any guidance
with puzzles or anything and nothing being spoiled to you, but everyone gets
stuck at one point or another.

Q: Are you going to do the other 4 games?
A: Probably eventually. My PS2 is broken right now and I need a new laser
assembly if I want to do the third. If you want to donate, I accept paypal hehe

Q: I can't beat a ghost, have any quick tips?
A: Wait until your charge is full, get as many core or special shots
as you can, upgrade your camera

Q: I need help with sliding tile puzzles, can you make videos?
A: No, I don't have any way to capture video anymore, but there are other
videos out there for the same intent.

Q: Are you going to do similar guides with other games like silent hill or
resident evil?
A: I will probably do the silent hill games up to origins at one point (I
still have yet to beat 5, actually) and probably won't do Resident Evil games,
I never beat one before and I think they are kind of boring/too hokey.

Q: I'm a first time player and I keep dying and I'm stuck on a night. What
should I do?
A: Hold onto a stone as often as you can, upgrade your camera. It took me 3
restarts the first time I played because I kept dying and using up all my
health items which is why I can type up to calamity by heart.

Q: I hate blinded and broken neck.
A: Yeah, me too.

You can contact me at etiucb@gmail.com about anything.
Sometimes it takes a while for me to respond to emails.
I appreciate any errors/mistakes caught or ways to condense time
by removing uncessiary actions, but I think I gave just a barebones
walkthrough. There are probably spelling errors.
