Personally I tried them only in G.T.A.
They ruin some games specially the competitive ones. so I am against them.

For sure! LOL, ;)
I used them in GTA and man it really worked there. I could swim in the ocean and don't die.:sneaky: It looks like your second life in a perfect world with no failure! But sometimes I feel I like to die, LOL. So these cheat codes are not always fun.

Well cheat codes we're pretty good to used. It makes you get away with an impending lose during a game. However, it still feels good to win because I did what I can. I avoid using it most of the time.

It depends on the game. Devs use a lot of 'cheats' to test the game out and stress it at the exact point they need to, to see if it works. Gamers can also use cheats to test out the game. Take a game such as Mount and Blade: Warband for example. You need to have a plan in that game. You need to figure out your build, and what items you want by the end-game. Using cheats allows you to figure out that end character, testing out particular weapons and armours, get a full party immediately to test its strength and figure out how much income you'll need to support it, et cetera.

In Crusader Kings II, console commands allow a new player to learn this complex game far more quickly. You're able to test out mechanics and optimise your strategy. You can figure out which counties you'll need to hold, what sort of retinue will curbstomp best, et cetera.

Cheats are good for testing. They're good if you want to figure out a plan that'll take you, when gaming legitly, to something OP.

Yeah if you want to a next level with less time consumed. But it would not make the game fun if you keep cheating. You might skip the fun ways of accomplishing a certain task. Boredom might strike you if the game does not give a challenging task. But sometimes, cheating might help to get rid of the frustrations you gained from not succeeding in a certain given task.

I think for some games cheat codes make the game better while for others they make it worse. For example, I wouldn't play the sims if I didn't use cheat codes because it takes a long time to earn money in that game.

On the other hand, there are games where I want to complete the quests and adventures on my own merit like GTA or Tomb Raider for example and using cheat codes takes away from that satisfaction of doing it on my own. However, if I can't finish a level and have tried every possible way I can think of but my strategies aren't working, I'm not opposed to using cheat codes so I can move on to the next level.

Not really. Cheating will not give you satisfaction in any case whether its a game or in any things. Yes you can win easily, but it's just fooling yourself on that thing. A good game can be earn with a good play of the game.

I guess it depends on the situation or the game itself. Most games are cheat-proof and there is just no way to hack it. Other games are more open and susceptible to cheats and hacks so there's that. However, I believe it will not give you satisfaction if you win a game using cheat so there's that also. In the end, it really depends on the person playing the game.

I feel like cheats codes are a lot of fun in certain games like GTA or The Sims but honestly, cheating will never give you the satisfaction of knowing you just beat that freaking level that was so hard and took you ages to defeat, by yourself.

Most new games especially on Playstation and Xbox One console have cheat codes to help the gamers complete some of the game tasks with some sort of ease.

These cheat codes comes in handy when such games are very difficult to complete but if the game is easy to complete, I think it's not really worth it in the first place.

What's your opinion about this?

I can't understand why so many players try so hard to cheat (for me... this is a total wast of time). The most fun of the game is to overcome difficulties and feel happy about it. When you cheat, you end up killing the fun of the game.

My personal opinion is that cheat codes take out the benefits of using the game. I have used them in some games. And I realized that I finished quickly and abandoned the game. So I personally prefer to just play it out till I hit the point where I can't play it no matter what. And if that happens then use the cheat code.

I do not like using cheat codes. There is no compulsion to excel in a game, gaming is more related to spending quality time, there is no need to show your excellence.

I did play with cheat codes when it was GTA days. That is how I played GTA when I was a kid.
Same. And it wasn't actually for beating the game. I did it just because I felt like running around blowing stuff up and seeing how long it takes to get wasted by the police.

Well, it depends on the person playing. I enjoy it a lot more with cheat codes, I easily get bored when a game is taking too long. And the main reason why I play such games is that I get to see what would happen when I finish one.

I think cheat codes add a sense of variety in terms of gameplay. It's similar to playing sandbox mode in some capacity depending on its effect. I kind of enjoy playing difficult games.

But having cheat codes makes it so that I can play the game with ease whenever I find it too hard to play. Sometimes we just use it for fun.

Personally, I don't like to use cheat code because it will only ruin the challenge. I feel useless when I do that. Like we all know that games is designed to challenge us mentally. This will enable us to know our ability and capacity to every task of difficulty. Gaming also develop our behavior to do our best and accept defeat. I think games is for fun and entertainment. We just have to enjoy it and never force ourselves to cheat just for the sake of winning.

My opinion is to never use cheat codes. They ruin the game. Game itself is made to be possible to finish, if it is a story mode off course. It is just not fun to use cheat codes.

This is absolutely true. Although, some gamers would argue that some game stages can't be completed without using the cheat codes as a result of so many odds stacked against the gamer.

I can't see how they can add something good to any game. I prefer to feel the real emotion with all the difficulties that may appear and I do not want to make things easier. the game can be difficult, complicated... But it has to be real.

I have never tried using cheat codes but I think they make the game fun at first. You could try and do things you could never do in normal games and be better than others. But I'm sure after a few games of being unbeatable it would get boring eventually. The whole point of playing, which is conquering obstacles and challenges, would be defeated. In the long run, cheat codes would make a game boring and useless.

Definitely, but it also depends on what type of game you are playing. I only use cheat codes when I am really frustrated because I have been stuck on a certain level for so long and I badly want to go next to another level but I don't know how. Though, the essence of playing games are overcoming obstacles, and conquering challenges, it isn't so bad to use a trick right under your sleeve a little.

I never tried to use cheat codes ang honestly I am not that aware on how it works but In my part as of now, I am not into it because it is more enjoyable playing a games, aiming for victory and achieved it in my own techniques and ways. Owning a victory without using any kind of cheat is different experience compare to winning using a cheat codes. Using a cheat codes can maybe use sometimes for experience some moves but not all the time.

No. Never. I won't say that I haven't tried cheat codes, because I did. Do you know what happened after I tried it? It's same as the others, it made the game less fun, exciting and challenging, which lead me to quitting it.

Cheats are okay when you are just having a great time but you couldn't know the real purpose of the game when you use some cheats. Cheats makes the game more enjoyable and easy but it wasn't good when using it through some mission. The game was made to actually complete it without the cheats, so cheats are just adding some happiness to the game.

I see no problem with people using cheats codes unless it's an online game with a ranking system then that's just not fair. But on offline games, using cheats just makes the game boring. That's just my opinion. It makes the game too easy and takes out the challenge in a game.

I have not tried using cheat codes but there are games and apps that are modded by some devs just to have that unlimited money to buy ammo to kill those zombies. I remeber I used to play a modded Dead Trigger app and it really made me reach new areas of the game and got to use those big guns and cool toys for the kill. Its really addictive since it has unlimited gold to buy stuff. It ended when I changed my phone and upgraded, and unfortunately it only works for lower versions of android

Cheat codes were designed for the game testers. So that game testers can finish the game quickly and notify of the bugs. But leaking of cheat codes has resulted into the cult of it's own kind. I think many games have been damaged because of this. I can tell you that many people quit gaming once they get used to the cheat codes.

Cheat codes will not make a player better because without those codes he/she will lose or will not rise to a higher level. I hate the players who are using cheat codes or any way to win easy and faster, is not fair to the other players.

It's always a good thing to avoid using cheats and guides. I have learned from my experience that using cheats is always a bad idea. And people should make some attempt to clear the levels on their own. That's what makes a better gamer.

as long as it don't affect online play, I'm fine with it. As long as its offline, who cares if you spice things up?
I'm in the same boat. As long as it's not going to affect anyone else's experience with the game, eg: online, then I don't see an issue with it.

I only cheat in some older games. Back when I discovered the various glitches in the Gen 1 Pokemon games, I used them to get 128 rare candies, master balls, etc. Now I know even more so I exploit glitches to catch all 151 Pokemon to transfer to the new games. xD

The point of gaming is often solving a puzzle. I mean, if you have answer - you've ruined the fun! Well, in that case, I would reserve cheating guide for really desperate situations. However, though, the funny thing is that the desperate situation - might turn out to be "not so desperate" - if you know what I mean! Well, you might be thinking, "Why didn't I see that?". :rolleyes:

Cheat codes will not make a player better because without those codes he/she will lose or will not rise to a higher level. I hate the players who are using cheat codes or any way to win easy and faster, is not fair to the other players.

That must be a problem for pro-gaming or online gaming. I mean, how can we spot those who use cheat guides? :oops:

Cheat codes don't necessarily make a game better, even if you are struggling. Online cheating is also bad as it gives other players a huge advantage.

i think the purpose of those codes was the tester to quickly test the waters and give feedback on the flow. so the codes get leaked by them and affect the normal game flow.
