: So, what do you think? Are the spoiler guides spoilery?
Marathon 1: No. You almost need to see the secret terminals to fully experience the story, as they tend to contain information critical to the plot.
Marathon 2: Absolutely. Unlike the first one, no story-critical information is stored in the secret terminals, and there are a few story-breakers in them. In the early going, it's just stuff like getting the redesigned fusion pistol before it's supposed to be finished, but in the latter half of the game there are a bunch that effectively give away the ending, in particular that one in My Own Private Thermopylae (you all know which one I'm talking about).
Marathon ∞: Mixed bag. The game's so stingy with ammo in the first half that it's hard to get through it without the spoiler guide, but then the WTFiness is what makes a lot of the atmosphere, which is diminished if you already know what to expect going in.
