Curious if anyone collects strategy guides for RPG's along with the games. I just got Suikoden II with the strategy guide but honestly I'm looking to sell the guide if anyone's interested

I used to before realizing that having to use a guide to play a game isn't a sign of good game design.

For me, a game guide is a way to maximize my gaming progress/time.  For example, which pokemon are in this area?  I could fight two hundred battles and hope I see them all, or I could find a guide.  Where are the last five blast shards in InFamous?  I could randomly wander through the entire city, or I could look at a map and systematically look at all of the spots where they are.

For me, it depends on how much artwork is used in the book and whether I liked the character designs to begin with.

I used to collect them just for the sake of collecting them. If I do actually need help with a game I usually just google or youtube it.

I have a Xenosaga 3 strategy guide. Because I collect vidyagames, and it was bundled with it for no apparent reason.

Which makes up for the manually being incongruously absent.

Addendum to my previous post: I, by principal, will not acquire any strategy guide that spends most of its pages telling me to check out the company's website, regardless of the quality of the art therein.
