Stumbling and Fumbling: Those Tricky Spots in Games We Struggled With

Phil Stortzum of Nintendo Okie writes, "We all have them– those spots in games that get us completely stuck. Either they’re completely obtuse in design or simply difficult in general. The following is a list of such sequences, areas, and spots in both classic and modern games. The purpose of this article is to elaborate on specific spots in classic games that got me scratching my head in bewilderment and most of the time, calling a video game tips hotline counselor when applicable. Hopefully this article won’t give you too many bad memories and horror stories of these spots! What I do hope this article will give you are plenty of moments where you go “yes, I experienced trouble here too” and other memories of possibly even overcoming such spots all on your own. After you’ve read the examples, name your own trouble spots that got you stuck way back when in the past or now in the present." (Culture, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, PS2, Retro, Xbox)
