** The official strategy guide is useless, walking you through the simple and obvious parts of the game, but giving you little-to-no advice ([[FigureItOutYourself or really vague advice]]) for the parts you'd actually want a strategy guide for, or giving you very poor advice (such as suggesting that you LevelGrind for hours until you can just brute-force your way past ThatOneBoss, when you could beat it in a fraction of the time with the right setup or strategy), or [[FinalFantasyIX giving you the bare minimum information to get through the story with almost no information on sidequests and directing you to a now-defunct webpage if you want more detailed information]].

* '''Reconstructed''': Some players enjoy the challenge and like that they're being [[ViewersAreGeniuses treated with respect]] [[ViewersAreMorons rather than scorn]] by the creators. The game finds its niche.

* '''Straight''': To get the [[EverybodyLives Best Ending]], the FiveManBand has to follow twelve steps - two of them are "talk to certain [=NPCs=]", three are "go to a certain area", one is "check things before they're actually useful", one is "listen to rumours", and one is "make the right decisions". After that, turn down all the {{Optional Party Member}}s, let one of your party members have a fight with someone, talk to someone who is featured in the best ending exactly once, and then just continue until the event happens. None of this is hinted at anywhere and no-one could figure it out without a guide.
