There's question type which has bugged me for a while: "Can someone provide me with a Guide for game X"? They seem to clearly fall under "Shopping Advice and Recommendation", and should therefore be closed as off-topic. However, we've never closed them and have several of them on the site. Some of these questions are just poorly worded, and others will need to be closed.
Drawing from these two wonderful answers by Miss Note, guide questions seem to fall under all the criteria listed as being an off-topic recommendation. She lists three criteria we can use to determine this:
A Shopping Recommendation: I think this one goes without saying. It's just a matter of opinion. "I suggest guide X because I like it."
An Itemized List: I also feel like this one goes without saying. All the questions will be is users listing guides they like.
Can the Question be Reworded into a Question about a Practical Problem: Some "Can I have a guide for X?" questions are just poorly worded, and are asking an actual problem. In these situations the question should just be edited to better represent the actual problem and question, because we should be doing this anyways.
Questions which consist of nothing more than "CAn I have a guide of X?" should be closed as either off-topic or not a real question. Off-Topic should be used when there is no problem presented in the actual question body, because then it's just a shopping recommendation. not a real question should be used when either a really broad or vague problem is presented, since that's the what not a real question stands for.
So why is it we've allowed these questions up until now, and is it time we've changed this policy to begin closing questions which are just users asking for a guide for X?
