Am I totally inept, or just misinformed?

At a rather advanced age, I decided to give video games a try. I bought a used version of the original Half-Life, and was immediately lost. I didn't know how to get my HEV suit on. And I would never have figured out that I had to go to my locker to charge it. Then I found some online instructions, and the problem was solved. My question: Does anyone tackle a game like this without instructions? Or do games normally come with instructions? I'm from a family of map-reading illiterates, and I have no geolocation sense at all. Is this the problem? Or is it normal to be lost without some step-by-step help?
