Hey guys im thinking of actually getting the strategy guide for gtaV if they have one which most likely they will.  I did not need one for gta IV but since this one is soooooo massive im thinking of getting one. 

Is anyone else thinking of getting a strategy guide?  I never buy strategy guides but for this game im thinking of getting one in case I need it which I might not.

Nah, not worth the money IMO, especially when you can find better info on the internet. However, if a guide has good exclusive artwork or in some way supports the devs, then I'll buy it.

Yep bought the limited edition from Amazon. It won't be here until the day after GTA V comes out but I can wait since I will be playing the game.

In Italy costs 20€ (26, 40 USD) which is too much for me. So i'm not going to buy it.

Yep, I got the Limited Edition guide. I'd prefer to look at the artwork section anytime using a handy book in my lap rather than searching for them on the Internet.

Yeah I mainly bought for fanboy reasons, I rarely actually use strategy guides, sometimes I'll use the map to pinpoint somewhere interesting I saw to go back to (but obviously get sidetracked)

I got the strategy guide, but am going to be careful how i use it. I want to get the most out of the game as i can, but can be a bit dismissive about a game when i get stuck.

 

So, yeah, I've got it so i can get the most out of the game.

Yes. Bought the Limited edition aswell as standard, like I do got every GTA game. Never use them though. Just make great collectors items.

I got both my collectors editon, and limited edition guide paid off. We are the hardcore fans.

I told some guy on another forum I was hardcore, and he got butt-hurt because he thought I was applying that he wasn't.

Then he says he just doesn't want the collectors edition or the guide.

I was like lol dumbass your not hardcore then. It's different if you want it but can't afford it, but you just don't want it at all.

That means your not hardcore dick-hole.

I never buy strategy guides, but I did for V. The limited edition hardback guide. Even if you can get the info online for free, it won't be as organized and detailed as the guide. Didn't you guys see the leaked picture of the guide open showing the stats on all of the cars in the game? Plus, the LE comes with exclusive artwork and I got a 10% discount at GameStop. :D

I'm getting the guide simply because I enjoy reading them. It's interesting to see how they suggest you do the mission compared to how you did it.

Someone brought up a good point that if you're going through collectibles or you're trying to complete all missions on Gold or something, all of the information is right in the book, so you don't have to look back over to your computer every other second. I'm debating buying it.

Yes I do want the guide but I'm gonna wait til I've completed the game first. Then I'll buy the limited edition guide, delete my save game and play a second time around only this time try to nail it 100%. That's my plan

 

I like lots of surprises which is the main reason I haven't sat down and looked at the leaked map properly. :pp

Oh look, it's the 10.000th thread for the strategy guide. It must be a hard thing to use the search.

Yes, now that I know that the vehicle guide returns. I know GTA Wiki is fantastic for info but sometimes have a physical guide is better for a game for such a massive range of vehicles.

 

Plus, I find it more convient to use a printed collectible guide than an online version.
