    When start a game and play it for the first time, do you end up using the walkthroughs to get everything and know all about it, or do you initially beat the game fairly and then check what you have missed?
    Just wondering,

    Almost always, since I can't beat any game without help.
    Yes I know, I'm a failure.

    I try not to, because if I do use a walkthrough, I get hooked on it and develop a dependency on it. Sorta like smoking.

    So, initially, I do not use a walkthrough, but when I get stuck and have no idea what to do, I go to GameFAQs and read the entire walkthrough.

    Nope, I'll beat the game correctly the first time, Use a walkthrough if Im looking for a particular item, Or the one time I got stuck in Twilight Princess. But other than that wont use them.

    Oh and Mystery Dungeon the 2nd time around, trying to figure out which pokemon were in certain dungeons.
