Genuine question - do people still buy these to help them through a game or are they more of a collector's thing?

I bought a few back in the day but these days, I use my phone.

If people wouldn't buy it, Prime could be closed for a long time.

Paperbook guides are more valuable and more comfortable to use it than digital versions. For example I bought guide for The Witcher 3 and I couldn't suss out what is where. I used paper guides for GTAIV, GTAV, Quantum Break or Mafia III and they were very helpful.
I have a couple, I tend to use the book at home and sometimes check out the digital guide at work sad as that is
Thanks for the replies @mattlong37051 & @vorimenn

I can also see that they might be better for discovering Easter eggs because without the knowledge of them in the 1st place, you wouldn't think to search the Internet for them.
Thanks for sharing this, I think there's still value or at least something interesting in a professionally-made guide. Certainly some interesting ones available.

By the way, at the bottom of the sale page there's a free Halo Wars guide.

Edit: that being said, I do notice this line on the book pages - 'This eGuide is a web-access product that requires an Internet connection to access and is not downloadable.'
