I guess it's appropriate to feel pride after solving an especially tricky puzzle.
It's not something you can tell anyone about though. Hey, I finally solved that Myst puzzle of the rising ship! Unless it's another gamer. I guess it depends on the type of puzzle for me. Some of them involve pixel hunts more than any brain work. Those are usually the ones I need a walk through for and I don't feel bad about it. I can hardly remember a time where it turned out to be something other than a hidden object somewhere that I neglected to run my mouse over.
If you haven't seen this guys, you have to check it out.
I'll think about it. I'm not sure how enjoyable a movie about game players could be, though.
