The convoluted logic of LucasArts adventure games broke me of any feelings of guilt or inadequacy from looking shit up.
So much this, all of it.I've felt what you mention. But nowadays I feel the guilt and badness in the opposite direction.
Which may have something to do with playing Destiny and Destiny 2 and JESUS CHRIST I PAY FOR THE GAME STOP HIDING THINGS FROM ME!
"oh, to get this quest you have to find out this secret place that is not mentioned anywhere, nobody gives you a clue in the game, you have to do this stuff, go to this nook of the map that is very well disguised, and ... "
Of course the very second you have all that in the game, you have it on the web. Dont tell me you didnt even leaked it. So I have to keep going OUT of your game to find everything from "what are the reasons for this happening" to "what I have to do to have the same weapon as everybody else".
Again, I PAID you for the game. The least you can do is actually give it to me in it. I may suck and never do the quests (or raids, I've still never done one of those), but I really dont like the whole 3/4 of the game info is outside it trend.
