As you know it's very possible in some games to get either lost or stuck and not sure what to do. Now, believe me, I do watch youtube walkthroughs. And they are helpful. But I want to get to a point where I don't need walkthroughs. I am playing Jax and Daxter (the first one) and am doing very well. But there are times when I'm not quite sure what to do. I usually pause the game and read my objectives and it's pretty straight forward. But right now I'm at a part where it says free 7 scout flies. I really don't know what that means, I'm sorry if I should know. What is a ''scout'' fly? Also I completed the ''Connect the Beams'' part with the help of the walkthrough but honestly I'm not sure I would have ever been able to complete that if it hadn't been for the walkthrough. IMO that's sort of technical.
So I do want to play games like this. I used to be a pickier gamer in the days, but now for the most part I am getting better. It's just that these little things here and there can really stagnate my progress. What do you as a gamer do to minimize the difficulty of these situations? Is it just a matter of how smart you are? Some gamers never have problems. They just always know what to do in every situation. I want to reach that level. Because when you struggle mightily, it can become a set back.
