For a game this big you need the even bigger guide.,
This review is from: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Prima Official Game Guide (Paperback)
When it comes to an RPG game, you know that it'll be massive. So much so that some of those games will require you to get the strategy guide because with a game as big as Skyrim, you need the guide to help you get around this massive world. So I went to my local Gamestop and was the first customer of the day and was also the first to purchase this huge almost 700 page guide. And it's huge and helpful.
What you will find in this guide is everything you ever wanted to know about the game: Every major quest and side quests. Tips on beating the enemies, all locations for the goodies. All magic potions and spells. A map poster, Every inn, every guild, every side game. I could mention everything but it's best to let you the reader be surprised on your own.
All I can say is that with The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim walk through, playing the game will be a breeze because you'll never get stuck and you'll be able to know how to beat a dragon or a tough guy through this book.
Enjoy the world of Skyrim and happy reading.

Who wants to breeze through a game? What's the point? I want to think for myself, get stuck and have to figure my way out. I'd rather have the Collector's Edition guide but that's because I'm a fan and want to keep it.. not cause I don't wanna be challenged.

You don't have to read every part of the guide, I only intend to read it when I'm really stuck or have a question about certain aspects of the game. This game is HUGE and though I'm going to love playing every second of it, there are far too many games to hang myself on one for far too long and thats when a guide comes in handy.

To each his own.
What's good for one may not necessarily be good for the other.

First, let me publicly congratulate you on your achievements of completing all of those questlines with out a game guide, you are a hero unto yourself. - Good job!
I'll bet you already know this, and tell yourself in the mirror every day; not everyone is a gaming God like yourself, sometimes we get stuck and need a hint every now and then, yes, thats one flaw of us mere mortals.
Just curious, why publicly criticize someone using a strategy guide for this particular game, did you demean someones gaming skills for every other strategy guide ever written?

"I don't see why that means you need the strategy guide."
maybe it's a want instead of a need? I played Morrowind 'til my eyes bled. I beat it up and down and sideways but years later I got my hands on a guide and found secret locations and items I never would have otherwise, after years of play! These guides are great. Prima Strategy Guides are more than just glorified walkthroughs. They're excellent companions to the games.

So is the paperback good, like durable-wise? or should I pay extra for the hardcover?
