When you play through a game, you probably make notes to yourself—mental notes. It’s unlikely you keep notebooks like these. Maybe you do!

Twitter user Ishikoro18 posted images of playthrough notes her father kept for games like Final Fantasy X-2, Siren, Ico, Silent Hill 3, Kingdom Hearts and more.

Little drawings, maps, and crossed out puzzles and passwords. There is so much detail in these notes.


Ishikoro18 is an animator, and from the looks of her father’s notes, pops has an artistic streak, too.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

too bad you don’t really need any of that for big modern games, there’s always a minimap, a quest marker or something flashing on the screen, mapping a dungeon floor for me was part of the fun and game experience itself
