A Cheater is you!

I'd like to talk about something that's been bugging me for a while, cheating.  First, check out this article courtesy of http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com:  Cheaters

It talks all about how Generation Y is using technology to beat the school system, and forgo studying for tests.  This got me thinking, how many of you fellow generation Y people had one of the following items as kid

How about a nice cup of RAAAAGE
It's not hard to see why our generation is acceptable with cheating.  Think about How high the Divorce rate is in the country, and the recent Baseball-Steroids scandals.  We grew up spoiled and stupid and we needed help just to get through a hard level on a video game.  For shame on you Generation Y! What's your personal opinion on cheating/hacking in games right now, or in the past?

  1. Cheaters are just scrubs who don't have the courage to power through something on their own.

  2. Nah. I don't see any point in cheating. If I do it, I lose any interest in the game. :/

  3. I don't advocate cheating in any part of my life. However, guides are okay and sometimes necessary when you're stuck on a video game. If you're going to cheat through the entire game, why are you even playing it? Just my thoughts.

  4. I think you should only cheat in a video game once you have finished the game thoroughly on the hardest difficulty. What would GTA be without cheats? less fun. a lot less fun

  5. *looks at game genie*
    FFFFFFFF-Feels old. :/
    I only use guides when I'm stuck. T3T I'm not that very good at many games.

  6. I hated the game genie. It would always get stuck in my NES. Not to mention that many cheats caused bugs in the games. Cheating to get past a hard level just wasn't satisfying, but some of the novel glitch type cheats were fun for a bit.

  8. I like to beat games on my own the first time through, but when replaying I see no issue with it.

  9. I stopped cheating in games and life when I was about 15. I think for some people it is a phase, for others it is a way of life.

  10. i don't really care about cheating unless the person is just so blatantly obvious.

  11. I used to cheat on single player, but I realized that it just made the game super duper boring.

    On the other hand, if I've been carving at this puzzle for ages and nothing is happening, I'm definitely consulting a FAQ.

  14. Gameshark for the mfw. I don't cheat against others, I just cheat once I've burnt out the game as it is. Also action replay.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I never had any of those on the image. However I believe cheating is a personal choice, even if you do it you are actually cheating on yourself. So w/e

  19. If I cheat I lose in the end. Simple. I cheat on a test then need the knowledge in life and end up over a cliff without a paddle (or something like that). Nah, cheating is just a way for people to get good grades so their parents and scholarships keep coming in.

    You can't cheat life.

  20. I loved my Game Genie, whenever I could get the piece of shit to work.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I dunno, cheating where other people don't come into play is alright, I guess.
    I'll finish a game, but cheat on my next run through for the laughs. I guess it's an effort thing for me.

    You miss out on a lot, cheating.

  22. Single player games: go nuts. Online games: screw you.

  27. Y'all just jelly you didn't have dat Gameshark!
    Gameshark was the shit back in the N64 days, when you could use it to play in the secret levels on GoldenEye.

  28. Whew! I'm Generation X. No Game Genie for me. Or was that Game Shark? BTW...made you blog of the day.

  32. You actually make a very interesting point. I hadn't considered the connection between those two factors until now.

  33. Cheating was and will be part of the world

    ReplyDelete
  34. For today's games, there's just no room for it.

    Most games now are pushing for immersion, and cheat codes just take that away

    ReplyDelete
  35. people are just getting dumber and dumber,
    generation after generation.
    people have to cheat.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Cheaters are idiots. If they using them, they lost a great fun from games.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't think people should cheat on online games, however after completing a game normally using cheats can breath new life into the game for subsequent playthroughs.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think every generation would have cheated if they had the same tech available to them

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think it has to due with the American value of individual over group, when you have to be knowledgeable in all areas it can really wear you thin and you'll turn to the alternative: cheating.

  40. GameGenie FTW! (srs)

  41. personally, I have always hated cheating in vidya. I did own a gameshark for my N64 but only used it for silly things and just dicking around.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I did have a gameshark-type modchip at one point, but that was honestly solely just to exploit FFVII and dick around by having Sephiroth as one of my playable characters (until the inevitable crash, of course!). Oh, I used the thing to play import games on PSX as well.

  43. cheating in a game is not cool in my opinion, too. but hell im using a trainer for dead space right now. i just want to see the end and feel the fear, but i dont want to play the same levels because i die. the game is scary as shit man

    ReplyDelete
  44. Always tried to avoid cheating, but some games, some very hard games, just asked for it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I must say, I sometimes get very frustrated on games, because I can't pass a certain stage. But then, when I use a cheat, it becomes too easy, and its not interesting anymore. I get bored and I stop playing...

  46. I blame Kirk and the Kobayashi Maru!

  47. Dude! Game genies! I miss those soooo much. I used to spend HOURS just hacking games to hack em. I swear to god you have my favorite blog on blogspot. It's like a little nostalgia everyday. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I never had one of those. I get bored of games if I can cheat.

    ReplyDelete
  49. After playing some of the old NES games, it's no wonder these things came out. Those games were damn near impossible sometimes.
