    Cheating isn't always :greddy:

    I played through FFVI at least 4 more times because I could change up everyone's special moves, and get badass weapons and stuff. Tara with Shock, Magiteck, Thieve, and Dance instead of the other crap they gave her was :bowdown:.

    I miss my 3405 HP Ford Focus, and 5000 HP AWD shitbox jap hatchback in GT3. Fucking things hauled ass. :bowdown:

    Shit like that that made the game tons more fun and gave it all kinds of replayability. They need to bring some of that stuff back. :o

    Kids nowadays would rather earn achievements and trophies.

    I never had anything like that... cheating :mamoru:. The only time I used it was when I was at my cousins house when I was really young, used Game Genie with Prince of Persia for the NES so you could never die or something like that. Inputting long codes FTL.

    I liked how you could see you were cheating because the Game Shark looked like a tumor coming out of your NES, SNES, Game Boy, Genesis, etc.

    Game Shark completely fucked up my Pokemon Red... never seen a Game Shark actually mess up a cartridge like the box suggested it could do. I was fucking livid. I had 131 pokemans cheat-free before I got the GS :sad2:

    I had a friend who would look up GS codes before even buying a new game, I don't think he played one game legit while he had it. But I remember having it and trying to get Laura Croft nekkid. :coold:

    I'm not talking about cheating to win. I'm talking about pulling more enjoyment out of a game. I played through FFVI a few times before ever using a genie. I had some of the best cars in the game in GT3 before I got bored and made cars ridiculously better than they should have been. If I got bored with a game, I could usually make it better or more interesting in some way.

    Shit, looking at it that way it's like an investment for getting more for your money. :eek3:

    I remember renting a Game Genie for Super Nintendo because there was a code to play as the bosses in Street Fighter 2.

    Never had one otherwise...but after selling my Nintendo then rebuying it years later - it came with a Game Genie and I used it to play some old NES games. Seemed to mostly glitch shit out!

    I used to purposely try and figure out the cheat codes for games before they got printed in magazines :love:

    did the cheats for most of the mortal kombat games and tomb raider 2 and a few others

    I remember playing super mario 3 with a hammer bros or frogger suit. The only problem with the frog suit was that you couldn't slide under things. I got stuck at one level when the only way to get pass was to do a slide.

    I loved those things, I had one for every system I had, made the games a lil more fun after I already beat them.

    With achievements and "trophies" they won't be around anymore

    Actually I think one of the biggest reasons we won't see them around anymore is because of online gaming. Cheaters, and bannings and whatnot. :dunno:

    Yeah that too. That and achievements. Whats the point of having them if put in a code and bam 1000/1000 without even playing. GS whores would love that though.

    sigh

    I really need to do this. Is it really complicated or can anyone with basic computer knowledge do this?
