View Full Version : do you cheat?

03-11-2006, 04:16 AM
i was wondering what ur guys thoughts on "cheating" r. first ill say what limits I go to for cheating:

for offline play cheats, i always go through a game first before using cheats. personally, invincible, skip level, etc. cheats really make the game not fun at all. after i beat the game, and there r fun cheats to do i will go through at least a few levels and do them(such as the graphics engine cheat in half-life 2 or the unlimited rocket launcher in RE4, which isnt really a cheat, but it serves the same purpose). if there is a ridiculously hard achievement that theres a glitch for, i will do it, as long as it doesnt cheat anybody else.

i never cheat or mod online. i hate the idea of cheating ppl and whatnot, i guess cuz when i do stuff thats bad i always think about what if i was in their shoes. i would never use an actual hack that exceeds what even the developers meant for the game to do, such as exceeding the possible gamerscore or modding in halo 2. the closest thing 2 cheating that i do online is playing with my friends to get free wins for online achievements. i dont consider this cheating, cuz i dont think i should be expected to get the achievements the "fair" way if the multiplayer isnt really all that fun. in my mind, thats the developers fault.

so theres my cheating philosophy.

Only game I remember cheating on in the past few years was GTA's. Used to beat a game first then Game Genie the shit outta it back in the day. CANT STAND online cheaters/cheesers/glitchers.

yes GTA kicks ass with cheats, however if i get bored with a game i will cheat in it to finish it

ya, i cheated a couple of the REALLY hard missions in starcraft and starcraft: brood wars.

Depends. If i get bored with a game sometimes I'll use cheats to liven it back up. Like after beating F.E.A.R. a couple times I went back and played it again with God Mode and all weapons and played the game all the way through using the remote mines.

Usually don't cheat to beat a game. If it's too difficult I either lower the difficulty level or just stop playing it if it gets hard to the point of annoyance.

Only ever cheat on GTA for fun AFTER I completed it may I add. Never cheat to beat a game, defeats the whole object of buying a game IMHO.

I beat games fairly first. then cehat for fun. I did cheat to get achivements for THAW. Only because I fully beat the game on my XBOX and just wanted to beat it again quickly on the 360 to get my achievment points. and I NEVER cheat online.

For fun. It always adds flavor to a game. Never to win though...

You know what? I bet I can name a game we all cheated in to win. Contra ! :eek: u,u,d,d,l,r,l,r,a,b,b,a. I know that I have gotten to stage 6 on this game with out the cheat but never beaten it. I think it would be possable, if you played it enough and memorized every jump / enemy etc.

i cheat in GTA when just playin around, but really cheat to beat something? no

Only cheating I remember doing was in battle field 2 on the original Xbox to get my rank higher. This was only because I was staying the same with all my friends then i went out of town and they passed me a lot. Not realizing this at the time, when they got a certain amount farther than I did I could not longer play with them. So I “cheated” for some of the medals to catch up. But once I did I started playing fair again. I would never mod or anything in halo tho.

o sorry and once in Midnight Club 2 just to go around and blow things up!

Not everyone feels the need to cheat, only those that get frustrated with not being able to do it with their limited ability OR those with no time to complete it properly and a real need to get achievement points/see the story progress.

I only ever cheat on the GTA series after I complete it 100% to have some more fun!!!!! :D
