Pretty simple question... How often do you cheat in video games? I try to avoid it, but I always end up cheating, simply because most of the games I play, I'm more interested in the story, than in grinding, and things like that.
#2
I usually cheat on my second run once I've completed the game.

Unless it's Pokemon on an emulator. Then I'd go straight to cheating. lol wild level 2 lugia appeared i'll just throw one of my 125236738902672390 master balls at it
#3
Do you mean like looking up cheat codes and secrets? If so, then yeah, I do it myself sometimes depending on what type of game it is.

I'll cheat just for the fun that it offers. Not necessarily to beat a game though.
#6
If a game starts to annoy me Ill cheat just to get it over with.
With such a wealth of information why are you so poor?
#7
Grand theft auto... all the time... rpgs like skyrim or dragonquest.. never.. even if grinds get boring I find it is part of the adventure to progress with my character.

I NEVER cheat during a game to help me through it.
Only time I ever use cheats is once I've completely searched a whole city in a GTA and want easy quick cars and rocket launchers to destroy the city.
#9
Cheating doesn't have the same "magical" effect it did on older games. Certain exploits I'll use if it helps me avoid grinding for money or XP or something.
#10
Every time I've cheated in a game it's kind of ruined it for me so I try to avoid them (except Morrowind... christ that game was silly).

I usually cheat (i.e trainers, hacks, etc) after I complete the game for a bit and stop when I get bored. If the "cheats" are in the form of cheat codes (like Ultimate Armor in Megaman) or unprecedented uses (like using a tank to hit another tank in GTA: VC to get a lot of money), then I'd totally use them.

I almost always use walkthroughs for games that require some sort of exploration.

Using Drill Specialist in Bioshock 2 is considered cheating too. I totally cheated on my second run in that game.
#12
The only game I ever use cheats on is grand theft auto, and only when I'm running around killing everything in sight.
#13
Only after I've beaten it fair.

Though honestly there aren't a ton of cheats for console games anymore. It's mainly a PC thing.

I blame achievements for ruining the fun.

Yeah I really don't get the point of achievements if they don't change the game at all - they seem to have pushed out the old stats/record page too which was usually interesting.

As a kid? ALL THE DAMN TIME. ALL DAY EVERY DAY SON.

Now? Never. I honestly can't remember the last time I cheated at a video game.

If it's a splitscreen shooter, like Halo, I can't help but glance at a friend's screen from time to time. But I don't do it constantly.

It's like when I walk by an open door, even if it's a ladies' restroom, I have to look inside.

Post took me right back to playing Siphon Filter multiplayer with half a cardboard box taped to the tv to prevent "screenwatching". That term always cracked me up too - what am I to do, wear a blindfold the whole time?

I haven't played a video game with cheats in a while.


Exactly this, since I don't play many games on my PC.
#22
I try not to cheat or even look at a walkthrough unless I have to. I like my first playthrough to be played how it was meant, just you and the game.

If the game has a save point right before the end boss that allows you to go do anything you missed (like LOZ games), I'll beat the game, go back and break out the walkthrough and go crazy.

Nice man!

That was the exact game I was thinking about too haha. I was imagining collecting all the poes and bugs without a guide.

I failed to do it even with a guide

Only when I beat the game
I see it as my own "special features" on a dvd menu. Remember the deleted scenes where Missingno came out of nowhere, Sonic was red and could fly, or where the cars were flying with hookers falling out of them?

Occasionally I'll look at walkthroughs if I'm really stuck, but other than that mehhh not really

I do on emulators all the time. I have a full Pokedex on Pokemon Red thanks to Gameshark. And I use Game Genie codes for my Sega Genesis emulator. 1 Ring for Super Sonic+Super Sonic not using Rings=an epic super-speedrun of Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Of course, I've beaten these games legitimately multiple times.

Never to get through the story, but in a game like Saints Row 3 it's awesome to give yourself godlike powers and wreak havok on the city. And Crackdown/Crackdown 2 with the Keys to the City cheats was freaking amazing.

Other than the sandbox games, I don't play many games that have cheats anymore. I wish they'd bring cheat codes back, they can be so fun...

First time playthrough, I'll go through as normal, if I'm REALLY stuck the walkthrough will come in handy.

Once I finished the game, in games such as Grand theft auto and whatever I'll create an extra savefile and use cheats and muck around and blow up cops through the windsheild with a rocket launcher and use an annihilator to blow up prositutes etc
METAL!

In fifa I replay some important matches if I lose them.

Never used cheats in other games. Doing stuff on legendary is just more fun when you die a gazillion times and then suddenly have a badass moment and win the level. Oh halo made me feel like a badass.

Only to enhance the experience. For example, in Skyrim, creating robe armor with the strength of heavy armor, simply because I think my character looks cool in it.

Or for quick fun, like the GTA cheat that arms the citizens and makes them go nuts shooting everything.

Charging through a game with infinite money, invincibility, unlimited ammo, and one-shot-kills, just isn't fun to me.
#39
I cheat in GTA san andreas all the time, know all the codes by heart now.. I've also kind of cheated in Darksiders (was trying to find an abyssal armor piece and just wanted directions)..

But RPG's never..It takes all the fun out of the game
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.
#40
I never use codes or anything but I always find myself just missing a really obvious doorway or something so I use walkthroughs nearly every game I play.
