On a side note there are also guides that I feel very sentimental towards even if they aren't all that necessary or helpful. An example of this is Star Fox 64. The game is an on-rails shooter and while there are some fun secret areas and paths, it is by no means a complex or difficult game. However, I adore Star Fox 64 and the guide just enhances that sense of adoration I have for it.

That's pretty spot-on for me. The few guides I do own are for games & series that I am particularly fond of. Having the Collector's guide to go along with my Breath of the Wild collectors edition game makes it all the more special for me.

I just got some The Sims 3 for PC Strategy Guides but I have not looked at them yet. All this Sims Series on PC are worth buying the strategy guides for, In my opinion because all sites I have found have too much ads.

Same here! The Xenogears and SaGa Frontier guides are two of my favorites. Nostalgia is part of the reason.

I was just looking through a FFX guide online which has some great illustrations. I also have a couple GameCube strategy guides from Nintendo Power which are fun to look through :)

Love ‘em, even to this day. I used to get them mostly for RPGs, though, but I do think they make a nice addition to a collection so long as you have the space.

I’m still in the market for some guides, specifically for Pokémon games.
