    You can cheat all you want, just as long as it's only for fun. Like the code in GTA which lets you kick with literal explosive force. That one's pretty dang awesome if you ask me.

    Why on earth did you only mention Animal Crossing Wild World's Resetti? He is way worse in the original game. He pretends to shut off your game. Or he pretended to delete your game file, I can't remember which. Still freaked me out as a kid, lol.

    One game that could also have been included was Road Rash 64 for the Nintendo 64. The game was semi-free roam in the races, but if you ended up taking short cuts it would pop up a message in the corner that said Cheat Much?. While this was tame, in one instance my younger brother got lost after missing a turn and ended up taking a huge short cut, yet when he got back to the road it popped up this message.
    Cheaters Never Prosper
    Then kicked him from the race and charged him [in-game currency] to 'repair' his motorcycle. What it charged him was the same price as purchasing the bike [at least twice as much as he could have won for 1st place].

    Not really a punishment, but in Stanley Parable, typing sv_cheats 1in the console command will send you into the Serious Room where the Narrator condemns you there for billions of years. Doing it again will have him condemn you for infinity years, and doing it one more time will have him give up and simply leave.

    This is a PC game, but I'm just gonna add Undertale. If you hack the game files or the game bugs out on a neutral ending, the phone call Sans gives you does not talk about the monsters who survived. Instead, he says, "If you get this ending, please contact the developer. If you don't, chances are--" His eyes go blank "Y O U R E J U S T A D I R T Y H A C K E R, A R E N T Y O U ."

    Nobody fucking cares about all this, they all cheat in games even today and now, and lets talk about GTA, who the fuck wants 100% game completion? NOBODY! they all have fun using cheats and killing anyone they see and doing shit they want, regardless of doing or ignoring missions. GTA=FUN, GTA+CHEATS=ULTIMATE PLEASURE! besides, using cheats in single player games doesnt hurt anyone or break any rules but if it was multiplayer then its a completely different story.

  • daveincognito
    daveincognito 4 months ago

    Mechwarrior on the SNES had an invincibility code. If you overused that code then the game would create invincible flying soldiers when you destroyed a mech. The work-around was to take a bit of damage before you input the code; when I did that, I didn't see those flying soldiers again. It still didn't make the game much easier, seeing how you had to defend bases from a ton of mechs that just didn't want to go down.

    Saints Row. Once you activate a cheat, it will remove your ability to unlock console achievements. But this is only if you cheat on the saved game you are playing at the moment. If you restart the game with a new saved game, the wall will be lifted. So there isn't a lot of risk in cheating in those game at all, unless you want to prove that you have actually played Saints Row.

    The moral of this video is that some game makers are dicks, forget that the games in question are YOUR PROPERTY after you buy them from them, and you should have the right to cheat in them if you so wish to!
    Now preventing you from getting achievements is fine and dandy. Breaking cartridges and doing other bullcrap like that? Not acceptable and if I remember correct, the makers of Donkey Kong 64 got sued over that and had to make a public apology.

  • Mark Jacobs
    Mark Jacobs 4 months ago

    the gta 3D era games never actually punished you for cheating... Some cheats however did overwrite parts of code that after saving became stuck in the savefile and caused mission code to behave different from how it should resulting in uncompletable missions. So yeah, that's why some games warn you about using cheats... Actively punishing people for cheats however seems unnecessary though since developers could've just not implemented them...

    Cheat codes should be rewards for players who enjoyed their games fully, not punishable offenses. If I beat a game fully, especially free roam single player games, I'd want to mess around, and whats a better way to do that than to use cheat codes?

    The worst one was the mole in animal crossing (any). He (Mr. Resetti) always acted like during off the console to correct a mistake was cheating or something. But it also couldnt tell the difference between an obvious act (like win a random prize on a certain day and then turning it off/on to redo it) vs having a power outage.

    How about a video that features one of a kind rewards for completing the whole story of a game? The Idea came from Nier, a game with 4 different endings, each new one accessable after finishing the one before. And if you ultimately finish the last ending, that game will delete all your saves. Thats not a glitch, thats your reward. Or maybe punishment for staying inside in front of the concole for too long. however, i'd like to know if there are more games that feature something incrediby unique for finishing it completely ( not necessarily talking about getting 100% achievements, but it could also be used )

    Why do game developers care if you cheat? Unless it's a multiplayer where you can be a troll to everyone, it seems petty for developers to spend time and energy trying to get get back at cheaters especially if we're talking about built in cheat codes.

    • Ryan Hill
      Ryan Hill 4 months ago

      I get what you're saying, don't get me wrong. I'm just saying that the developers do have legitimate reasons for wanting to limit cheating, even in single player.

    • Ryan Hill
      Ryan Hill 4 months ago

      I think a lot of people have said this already, but basically it's because they've invested an enormous amount of time and money creating a game for people's enjoyment, and then people cheating is basically throwing all of that in their face and saying, "I don't care about all the effort you put into crafting this gameplay experience; I'm just going to break all of its rules for the hell of it."

      Using cheats actually can cause people to inadvertently reduce their own experience of the game (it's fairly common for people to report lower satisfaction when cheating, because it requires less effort), which then reflects badly on the developer and their profit if a large portion of the audience judges the game based on an unauthorized alteration to the gameplay experience. And people do judge them based on that if that's how they play.

      In the case of in-game cheat codes, those are often intended for debugging purposes only, meaning that they are not meant for people to exploit in order to alter the game experience. It's the same sort of reason that you don't allow everyone access to the debugging mode when you code/release an algorithm in computer science.
