Most of these examples are basically just poor design, where the manual or in-game instructions just fail to elaborate on some things. There were also some more sinister versions where the developers ''wanted'' you to spend money by calling their hotline or buying their hintbook or [[Magazine/NintendoPower Magazine]]. Now that GameFAQs and {{walkthrough}}s are more common, this practice has pretty much stopped.
