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%

    Too bad you can only do it in ip games, at the risk of assertion failures or a chance that your character cannot access online games (happened to greg).

    I use editors on diablo to test build ideas and make items so see how the character would turn out in single player before making it on closed realms. I also cheat at GTA games because the codes are fun, other than that I don't use cheats, hacks, mods w/e.

    cheating is evil. it is a temptation. cheating makes the game easy and kills any fun that the game holds. cheating is evil.

    With Final Fantasy 7, out of me and 3 close friends of mine, I was the first to play it and beat it, without a guide of anysort. Then they come behind with guides and get better than my file.

    Same with 8,9, and 10.

    I don't like using cheats that change actual gameplay. Like, a No-Hud cheat is ok, but a Invincibility cheat- no.

    Even if I am stuck, I will suffer for the win!! Then use cheats for the fun of it.

    However, some games I don't even consider cheating (Serious Sam is one).

    I think that u should have entered a category that sounds like "Only when I am really pissed off because the game is a piece of crap"

    Depends on the game.

    LIke, on Morrowwind, I've never beaten it without cheating. However it's so much more fun to just cheat and kill everyone in sight.

    Same thing with games like DOom3. I like having infinite ammo, cause I'm lazy.

    Yeah but each time you cheat, your criminal rating goes down. The only time I really ever cheated was to do the Ambulance missions to repair the damage caused by cars. If you want some real fun, type the cheat that gives all civs random weapons then type the cheat that causes them to flip out on each other. Turn Vice City into Viet Nam in seconds.
