While many gamers would like to think that they don’t need any advice or assistance after loading up an unfamiliar title, it goes without saying that little bit of help can go a long way. Take sandbox games such as Minecraft, Terraria and Stardew Valley, for example. Sure, you can get by and progress a bit without any help as the mechanics are fairly straightforward, but you’ll inevitably reach a point where you’ve either missed something, screwed up, or want to start again.
If you take the time to read up on your game, know and understand the intricacies, mechanics and hidden achievements that could ultimately change the way you play the game, then life will be a lot easier. This applies to pretty much any genre. Even competitive first-person shooters where the premise is as simple as “point and click” generally have a plethora of tricks and hidden mechanics that can only be discovered by accessing a knowledge base of some kind.
Based on the same concepts as Wikipedia, one of the most popular knowledge bases in the world, Wikia, acts as a more community-driven hub, where players from around the world can come together and contribute their knowledge. You can find a dedicated Wikia for almost any remotely popular title. These websites are usually cut into a growing list of categories that are constantly updated for accuracy and relevance.
Unlike websites that are only updated by the people who run them, Wikia lets you contribute and change something if you find an issue on one of the pages. There’s also a comments section under each topic where players can discuss the theme of that page and give advice.

Just like Wikia, YouTube’s dedicated gaming section gives anyone and everyone the opportunity to share their content. You won’t have any trouble finding information or help with any game thanks to the constantly growing list of dedicated channels. Whether it be tutorials, playthroughs, tips, and tricks or live streams, YouTube Gaming will likely have the information you need to know, and in video format no less. There’s also a comment section where you can further read up on the topic you want to know about or obtain more information on.
This helpful website is constantly updated with new content on a variety of games. Sections are broken up into different platforms, making it easier to find information on the game in question. Whether it is the latest Xbox, the oldest PlayStation, or even mobile games, gameguideworld.net likely has it covered. Just like with Wikia and YouTube, there’s a comment section below where players can further discuss the topics of each post and share their ideas and strategies.
As long as the game you need help on has some people playing, there will be a dedicated community of enthusiasts sharing their ideas somewhere on the internet. You just have to look in the right places, and once you do find them, your game will be a million times more enjoyable, not only because you’ve just learned a new trick or two, but you can also find other people to play with at the same time.
