What Are Game Walkthroughs?
If you’re stuck, you can visit StackedGame to find a Game Walkthroughs to help clear that tricky level or beat that pesky boss. The website also lets you easily upload and share your own walkthroughs, tips and tricks, cheats and guides with your fellow gamers. Both video clip and document format walkthroughs are well supported on the site.
A walkthrough is a video or article made solely for the purpose of helping other people get through difficult parts of the game or finish the game. Often a walkthrough boasts of a 100% completion rate of the game.
A longplay is a play-through of a video game, created with the intent of completing it as fully as possible, mainly for the purposes of nostalgia, preservation, and possibly as a walkthrough. Also, for people who are unable or unwilling to play a certain game, yet wish to know and experience its story, a longplay can be viewed simply as a long digitally animated movie. Unlike speedruns, there is no time constraint aside from those imposed by bandwidth/filesize concerns. Likewise, a longplay is distinct from a Let’s Play, in that there tends to be little to no commentary on the game from the player.
Walkthroughs and Playthroughs
Game walkthroughs make it easier for a person to complete a game/mission or even to obtain 100% completion rate, this is not to be confused with a game playthrough. A playthrough is a video of the whole game being played from beginning to end. It is different from walkthrough as its purpose is not to help other people play the game, and is only to show the whole game to the viewers.
