I, personally, am against them. I very much enjoy exploring games and figuring out what everything does for myself.However…I recently posted a game of mine and the feedback so far has been less than positive. The reason, it seems, is that most people can’t figure out a certain part, and they give up without getting very far at all. Some want instructions telling them how to do everything. Should I write up guides on how to pass sections, even if I feel I’m killing the enjoyment?
How do you all feel about this issue? As a developer, do you appease the populous? As a gamer, do you feel feel better when you do something on your own, or does it not really matter at all?
