You know what I'm talking about. You're stuck on a puzzle, boss battle, or just don't know where to go next, say "Eff this," and jump on gamefaqs or something for the answer. And of course there are some games, like the Souls' series, that thrive on an online community that helps each other out. But when I'm playing a game and it crosses the line from challenge to frustration, i'll jump online and get the answer so I can move on and enjoy what I'm playing. I feel stupidly guilty doing this, like I'm "cheating," but it's better than wandering a level for 45 minutes looking for a door.

So, what's your breaking point with a game's challenges? Will you go online at the first sign of trouble, or bash through the problem til 2AM on a workday?
