Note to would be critics

Note to would be critics: We writers play and write what we have experienced in the game, so we may have our own tactics and approach to various situations. That means you may have your own style of playing the game. Walkthroughs are not meant to dictate your entire gameplay but to provide insights that may help you devise your own tactics or give your directions.

That said, it would be unfair to lambast our work just because you think that your style is better or superior than ours. If you have something to say, email it to us authors; not badmouth us in forums. Our walkthroughs may not be as “great” as some of the guides from certain sites but that doesn't change the fact that you, “critics”, can't dedicate hours of labor to play and write walkthroughs as we do. If you have time to criticize somebody's work from being incomplete or for having “inferior” tactics, then why don't you write your own walkthroughs and prove that you're better?

We don't have problems if you guys cite something missing or incorrect about the walkthroughs we write; it even gives us the opportunity to improve our work. What we can't accept however are those who love to reproach other's people's work mindlessly, without consideration.


  1. May i ask where this is coming from? who's negatively critiquing your work?

  2. @xemnas: Ah man, just let them be. They say you can't please everybody... especially in the online community.

    Its from some guys in some forum. No biggie actually; just want to make a point.

  3. Good advise m8. It is very easy to criticize and find fault in others and fail to see our own short comings.

    As a game guide writer you will come across loads of comments etc from empty vassals (people with less then the average intelligence) just ignore them and carry on with the good work you do.

    Kudos to you.

  4. @Wulfbane: Thanks mate. Knowing that there are still guys like you that understand and consider what it takes to write a guide and all.

    Just like what you said, its easier to say something than to do something.


  5. Well, it's not to criticize that i'm here right now.

    I'm going to finish Persona 4, and that's thanks to you.
    (I actually use your P3FES guide too...)

    You did a wonderful job. I don't even understand how or why someone would bothered underestimate something that indeed is great.

    Let's say they have time to lose.

    Keep it up !
