Dude, cheats haven't been in games for a long time. Maybe licensed games, but I can't think of anything else.

#3 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

No. Did all the time as a kid during the Mega Drive/ PSX era but I slowly started playing the games as I was supposed to early during my PS2 period. I learnt that playing is properly is simply more fun- although that may just be because I had the skill to beat them once I was older.

I find myself no longer using any cheats in my game since it challenge me more and end up having more fun than if I were using cheats.

#5 Posted by Yummylee (22039 posts) -

Cheats still exist? I think thats what the moddings are for, nowadays.
#6 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19367 posts) -

Cheat codes?  Dude, they don't even exist anymore (except for in some open world games like GTA and Saints Row).

No, they disrupt my achievements.

#9 Posted by Cwaff (1260 posts) -

I never cheat anymore, don't see the fun in it.

#10 Posted by eroticfishcake (7786 posts) -

I used to mess around with them a lot in the PS1 era but very rarely up to now. Partially because they're almost non existant and partially because I like to play games for the challenge now (provided that the challenge is actually fun.) I still like to play around with cheats on PC games like Oblivion or some FPS but that aside I don't use them anymore.

I'll be disappointed if Starcraft II doesn't have a good slew of cheat codes.  And you can be sure I'll use them to my great delight.

In The Sims, yes.

#13 Posted by EVO (3919 posts) -

Cheat codes died alongside THPS.

#14 Posted by Tennmuerti (8135 posts) -

Of course!
Cheats provide a whole new dimension to experience games if you want to get more out of them.

Cheat codes don't exist anymore, dude.

#16 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

I used to, not anymore since I like to finish the game without cheating. 
And I sometimes may use it in GTAIV outside of the story for fun but other than that...

#17 Posted by PAJ89 (91 posts) -

If I'm playing a game with cheat codes I'll activate them to have some fun, but I'll play through the main campaign/story/etc without them.

#18 Posted by ColMirage (257 posts) -

Yeah, sometimes it's fun to screw around w/ cheats on.

#19 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

The last time I did was when I was just screwing around in GTA4 with my cousin long after beating the game. He had made some game where he'd spawn helicopters, then go to Algonquin and elevate to the highest altitude and then jump out and try to bounce off the sides of buildings. Ha, I don't know how exactly he got that bright idea, but it was fairly entertaining.

Yes. Console commands are so fun to play around with, especially when replaying an RPG and want to skip to the best parts.

#21 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

no, not anymore. there isn't really any more cheat codes made for games. the only games that have cheat codes are open world ones.  a lot of them effect achievements and trophies now so i don't think a lot of people use them anymore.

#22 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

Not many games have cheat codes anymore...

#23 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Sure I do. 
Not while finishing the game the first couple of times. 
But I do it with games like GTA and Saints Row 2 when I just wanna mess around with a bunch of stuff

#24 Posted by Zidane_24 (739 posts) -

Uhhh the last ones I used were in GTA IV, I believe, and I haven't played that game since about a month after it came out. You really don't see them too often anymore, do you? Maybe in, like, games based on movies, or in sports games, but I don't really play any of those.  And any game that DOES have them that I play disables achievements when you use cheats, and rightly so. So, no, not in a long while.

#25 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -

I used to use cheat codes in my games. However, they are much more fun without cheats. Not only this, you're basically punished for using cheats in some games by having stuff locked out, such as achievements.

#26 Posted by Dom (436 posts) -

if you ain't cheatin' you ain't tryin'

#27 Posted by cstrang (2381 posts) -

I don't.  Generally, I'll only use cheats to "enhance" the game after I've beaten it.  Otherwise @Vinchenzo said:

" No, they disrupt my achievements. "
and, they have a nasty tendency to corrupt save files....

And any other game which requires me to have lots of money just to buy clothes for my character.  I used them in Saint's Row 2 because I wanted better clothes than the bargain basement crap they gave me at the start.  I wanted to look good!  I used them in modded versions of the Sims 2 & 3, Oblivion and Fallout 3 to buy community-created clothes from community-created stores in the game.  I don't use them to make myself stronger, faster or better.  Just to look fabulous!
#29 Posted by Mars_Cleric (1595 posts) -

I only use cheats after I've finished a game at least once. 
Normally in strategy games and GTA because they normally have some crazy things in the cheats. 
The Age of Empires games always had weird units in them you can only get by using cheats.
Plus in GTA sometimes I just want to load it up, give myself infinite rockets and go around blowing shit up. Thats part of the fun.

Suddenly I miss my GameShark.

#31 Posted by Chyro (353 posts) -

I do on GTA sand box type games if I have it beaten and am just fooling around.  Other then that... no.

When I'm playing old Genesis games, heck yeah.
 New things, nah
