I was never able to finish any of those Infocom games without the hints. Maybe it was because I was still an adolescent and not clever enough yet, but I have no idea how people did it.

Part of the problem was, as has been discussed before, there were ways you could get stuck without knowing you were stuck, wandering around the game world forever trying everything you could think of, having no way of knowing you missed the chance to get an item you no longer have access to and needed to restart the game.
