- Look, I rarely cheat. But when I do.. it's out of sheer desperation. As many other people said, I've finished the game a number of times and want something extra to do.

- Cheats are used when I am completely and utterly bored with a game or come across something impossible. Using cheats is exceptionally funny in the GTA series, but as they take so long, i usually dont ACTUALLY complete them. I got to the part in San Andreas where the guy jumps off the roof and you have to catch him in the truck. Got bored. CHEATS!!! They are a life-saver and prolong the amount of time I spend playing games.

so called cheats --- clarification
- Many entries listed , are in my opinion not cheats. For example , have a suit of armor that gives you 105% chameleon, is a legitimate thing. You worked for, earned, and biult it. You also paid for the enchantments. Giving your self 100000000 gold pieces is a cheat. Standing on a high place in combat is no cheat, it is a mage or archer strategy. Letting Players from other quests follow you into another quest is usefull, because they cant die, but it isnt a cheat, it is playing the game slick. You are maximizing the potential. You are pushing the envelope. Cheating is ~player.setactorvalue magicka 65000 !!! Clarification of terms. Are you a a pup, or are you really chaeating? Hey dont do this on your 1st game, play it straight up, cheat when your board with the game, and cant afford a new one. Earl W. Fon Du Lac, Wi.

only for the time wasting parts
- i only use the cheats that let be bypass time wasting actions like gathering 50 ingredients in the fields around skingrad yes i lose out on the experience fighting random monsters but i dont waste 2 hours of playtime either otherwise i just don't use them as it detracts from the game experience for me however those things that don't require a cheat code i will use (vampire ashes in the archmages chest) as they are a part of the game the designer intended

Why do YOU use cheat codes?
- i love cheats...when ever i get a new game such as Overlord 2 i got the other day, i looked around on the net 4 cheats as soon as i got home...it's the same with any other game i own..and trust me on this i am the worlds biggest cheater for it

- Though cheating on online games is stupid, cheating at single-player games is purely for the power trip. For example, in your favorite level based RPG, lets use Pokémon, you can raise your Pokémon up levels, battling and using strategy. It’s fulfilling and amusing for a long time. But some times, you don't want that. You want to laugh evilly as level 3 start Pokémon are crushed 'neath the mighty tread of your level 100 Shiny Legendary Pokémon. Also, with cheat devices such as Action Replay, Gameshark, Etc. not all "Cheats" are actually cheating. Example: Banjo-Tooie for the Nintendo 64. I play on an emulator, so multi-player isn't much of an option, but internet research revealed that there was a Gameshark code to activate a two player story game mode that the developers didn't quite optimize in time for release, and so they took out the activation coding. Obviously such things apply to older games more-so now, with patching so popular now, but it's fun none the less.

I cheat for fun...
- Yeah sure, cheating can be looked over as "lazyness" or some form of evil, but if you look into the heart and soal of the games, you will notice that all games were made WITH cheats. Example - Oblivion (the duplication cheat) if the game was not made with such a cheat programmed into it system, how could anyone figure out such a marvellous helping hand?
- —Guest Rustypeanut
- I like to play games without cheats like on oblivion I have a main save which I am playing properly then I have a seperate cheat save which is for when I am bored and feel like going around and killing everything and everyone, cheats are purely for fun, variety is the spice of life. :D

Cheats Can Help!
- i will use cheat codes if im looking to collect those last acheivements i need for full points. like bob said, some games can take a long time to complete and when you only have a certain amount of time, cheats come in handy. The people who design these games usually allow cheats to be unlocked onced you have completed certain and most often challenging tasks within the game. i look at it like a reward. finally, cheats are a part of gaming and should be used to help with time issues or something that will make life better...not to get out of a challenge!

Cheats are for fun
- I only use cheats for fun, after I have beaten a game(Or gotten most of the way through) I am sick and tired of those people who think cheats are only for bad gamers complaining. I just wanna say you all are idiots.

Don't Use Cheats
- Doesn't feel right. Feels like steroids. I can see why you might want to cheat to get through a single-player game but not in online play.

why i cheat
- I love gaming but I have to work and sometimes it helps to use a cheat so I can finish a game....

Too Many Games and Too Little Time!
- For me, its not a matter of skill, or lack of, its a lack of time. I have a full time job, I go to school, and I have a social life away from my television set. I don't have the luxury of sitting in front of a game for hours on end learning every single aspect of it. If I buy a game, I want to get the most fun I can, without wasting time. For me at least, this comes easy with the use of cheats like infinite ammunition, invincibility, etc. Now, I do like a challenge, but on my own terms, and I definitely can't have a game run my life. So I cheat!
