  1. Is it wrong for me to think that if you're going to play an old NES/SNES era game for the first time that you "should" at least look up the manual as well to learn the game?

    I feel like people who don't do that just end up giving the game a bad hand because it doesn't teach them the controls in game.

      I've just been winging it on anything I didn't play when they were current. Google is there if it can't be figured out,

      Because nobody can take a hint. Literally. Hardcores who maybe were too illiterate as a kid to read manuels back then have twisted that around and say "Real gamers have to figure everything out on their own and all tutorials are bad". 


      For me when I play old games, the most I'd need is a glance at the controls and abilities and go from there, and I don't pull up walkthroughs unless I'm really lost. I guess when I get around to play something like Zelda or Metroid, a manuel should be in hand so that I don't start off flying completely blind. I mostly wanna let the game itself teach me at every opportunity

      Seriously. To me, the manuals of those games are as necessary as a random tutorial shoved into a modern game.

      if you're having trouble you should check the manual, but also a lot of old games are just kind of bad.

      Got to playing Dragon Quest on an SNES, and the game explains nothing to you. But everything you need to know is in the manual, it tells you how everything works and even gives recommended party setups.

      I know older games either simply didn't have the space to give a tutorial, were arcade games that put their tutorials on the side of the cabinet, or just didn't care enough to tell you how they worked.
