How often do you use cheats, codes, and hints for video games?

  1. All the time, as soon as I play the game.

    4.8%
  2. Only after I have beaten the game without cheats.

    42.9%
  3. Occasionaly, when I am stuck, but not for all games.

    28.6%
  4. Never, cheat codes are evil and ruin games.

    23.8%

    Hardly even, except maybe after I beat it and I am going through another time to see what it's like.

    Once I beat em. Though now a days, if I beat a game I hardly ever play it again.

    Then theres the games that I get ROMwise that I don't really feel like playing through legit so I just cheat through them to get the storyline and such.

    Does save/load stating count as cheating in games like Raiden or R-Type?

    I actually cheated on XBL for Halo 2 for like a day and then I realized that it was pointless and made the game not fun.

    I only cheat to get through a game im not interested in to get the story out of it. Also I will look at guids for games which require strategy, so I can sort of get a good feel for how I should approach the situation.

    I didn't see the "only after I've beaten the game" option, or I would've selected that. I used to use cheats when I'd get stuck, but now I generally prefer to figure everything out on my own before I use any cheats or hints. After beating the game, I'll go through it with a guide of some sort to see what I missed.

    As Gimmi said, it depends if I want to or not. In Diablo II Nezmod, me and Dream often use duping to re-create collected souls and dolls. So that we each have them. Also I have cheated a few times via Gameshark, but I can beat the games without thier help.

    If the game is still fun I play it, usually first time through no cheats. If the game sucks and I just want to finish the story I cheat like a whore. If the story sucks and the game is boring I stop playing it.
