Essay:

Some say there are two kinds of video game players. Those who use strategy guides and those who don’t. Many gamers consider the use of a strategy guide to be lazy or outright cheating. The publishing of these guides is a solid and growing business.
The creation of a strategy guide begins when early copies of the game arrives at the home or office of the guide’ s author. The excitement of trying a new game is mixed with realizing the finished guide is due to the publisher in four months and the clock ticks. The author usually begins by spending many hours playing the game and trying out as many tactics as he or she can figure out. While developing the guide, plenty of help is provided by the game’s designers. But guide authors must be able to get by on they’re own because there are times when the designers are just too busy to respond.
Published strategy guides face tough competition from a variety of free online sources. A key advantage guide publishers have over these online content providers, however, is the assistance they receive from the game companies. Many gamers, especially newbies, use a combination of free online help and published strategy guides.
Strategy guides have been popular with gamers for several years. The guide authors do not share in this popularity. One author explains that his publisher sometimes asks him to sign the strategy guides he wrote at trade shows. The problem is that some people who buy the guide there specifically ask him not to sign it. He says he’s cool with that, working on the guides is its’ own reward.
