i don't think i used the hints in Bttf, but i have used hints in other adventure games and they are often just as frustrating as the puzzle you are stuck on and would say some thing like "you have to open the door to the bakers" and I am thinking "i know i have to open the door i just don't know how to do that you asshole hint" but then i would go on the internet to find out how to open it and it would tell me how to actually open the door (and the next puzzle if the website isn't good at hiding spoilers
the thing about having an actual solve puzzle button on the game would mean that i didnt have to search through a guide to find where i am in the guide.
and no it is not a sign i want to watch a movie or a lets play it is a clear and obvious fact that i am stuck on one puzzle
