    I beat the whole Portal 2 game without any walkthroughs. Obviously, others have done so in order to make the walkthroughs, but it just feels like such an accomplishment.

    I did miss an achievement, but ah well, I might play it again some other time.

    Congrats.

    I did as well. I hardly ever use walkthroughs anymore. However, I was SORELY tempted at several points. ^_^

    Yeah same, especially when it's a puzzle game, but when I do find a walkthrough for one level I totally become dependent on them.

    I use a walkthrough occasionally. Sometimes I end up saying "How did I not think of that" and at others saying "How on earth was I supposed to think of that". Both of which are extremely irritating :p

    Walkthroughs defeat the purpose of playing when it comes to puzzle games.

    That's true, but it's really really tempting at times :p

    There were even times where the levels were fairly easy but I didn't know where to go after that :p

    I fully confess that the first time I played Myst, I used a walkthrough.

    Luckily, it was only once, and I deliberately avoided the game for years, so that on my next playthrough, I'll forget the solutions and be able to play legit.

    I dont think I used any walkthroughs. And its definately an awesome game that should be beaten that way :).

    EDIT:

    I have a confession, though. Sometimes my brain stopped working and I spent like 40 minutes on a rather trivial puzzle :p.

    Yeah, but I wouldnt say its wrong to use them if you just cant get passed a specific part. And I do not just mean in 10 minutes, I mean you have really, really tried but just cannot figure it out.
