Do you buy game guides ?

I personally love the graphic arts of game guides though rather than to seeing its guides' walkthroughs. I buy game guides that synch with the games that I have. But, I can afford paying less than $5 itself in a store.

What about you guys ?

I rarely get guides. I think the only guides I have are for Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility, a Pokedex guide for up to Diamond/Pearl (I think), and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I use to have one for Link to the Past/Four Swords (GBA) but someone borrowed it with the game and lost it.. Luckily, they didn't lose my game and I got that back. I usually just don't want to spend the money on them. .-. I do want to get the guide for Lego City Undercover on the Wii U though.

I used to, but there's hardly a need for them anymore when there's info readily available on the web.

I don't have them myself, but I like looking through Kie's Bioshock, Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess guides. When I resume Twilight Princess I'll probably use it to try and try to 100% complete it, same goes for Wind Waker.
The BioShock and Wind Waker HD guides have some really beautiful art in them.
Usually I just use walkthroughs online to get everything in the game.

I used to. These days I sometimes buy them for the artwork or extra information about the game universe. But most of the time I just go to GameFAQs or YouTube if I need a walkthrough.

Not really, I like them for the artwork sometimes, but other than that there really isn't much point

Back when I was a kid, we'd buy them all the time. The latest one I bought was maybe the one for Twilight Princess on the Wii because I wanted the poster. They're too expensive and I can just use the web if I'm confused.

I buy them occassionally, especially for Zelda games. Usually standard editions aren't worth the money, but if you wanna put down $5-$10 more for the special editions, then they're worth it for the freebies you get. Skyward Sword and Wind Waker HD both had cloth maps, for example.

Also, Prima Games has begun packing in codes for digital copies with their guides, so that's nifty.
