Reading this post was awesome.
About the hint system: I think it's OK this way. And its existance.
A millenial I know started to play TWP in casual mode, he liked the game and he is at Part 3, but now he's stuck (because he DOESN'T READ!). I think he will use the hint system, because I refused to give him the solution to the puzzles :-)
