This question came to me while playing a video game, in which I exploited a bug to beat a level.

Taking this into a wider context, do you think that taking advantage of a flaw in a system is "cheating" or unethical.

Edit: This is not about videogames. I mean in real life, is taking advantage of a flaw in a system unethical, IRL?

Well considering that's called exploitation, I'd have to say...YES! Plus it really pisses me off when n00bs do it all the time in games (i.e. getting underneath maps and instant headshot mods).

of course its cheating. if its technically a BUG or GLITCH, then it wasnt meant to be there and part of the gameplay, so using it is going against the games natural flow. so yes, it is cheating. if u mean by just doing something rather cheap over and over again, thats not, its just cheap.

plus cheating doesnt always mean unethical. if ur cheating a system that deserves it, so be it.

I prefer to do the work myself, especially if the bug gets you rewards for no effort. What game/bug was this?

I feel that cheating really ruins a game. It removes the challenge and removes any long term fun factor.

...I thought you were asking if taking sexual advantage of an insect counts as adultery.

Thank you so much, I thought I was the only one.

Can we talk about taking advantage of insects anyway?

If you need to cheat to play a video game you shouldn't be playing it.

That's just me though

Intercourse with anything but your significant other is cheating, yes.

What kind of tiny cock do you have that it could fit in a bug?!



Masturbation with a magnifying glass is not an option. Some people have to use an electron microscope...

Inserting an insect into your dong would at least be sexual, although I'm not sure it wuld count as rape.

EDIT: I think the difference between a bug and a beetle is that a bug can suck. I'm sure that can be exploited somehow.
