While you could say in life that cheaters never prosper, that’s actually a load of bullshit. If you’re smart and careful about it, you can get away with a lot. The same can’t be said for video games. You don’t really need to know or do much, just look up the right code and destroy the game with unlimited lives and ammo. I mean, there are so many cheats available, it’d be a waste not to take advantage.
But a lot of developers aren’t keen on you circumventing their frustratingly hard mechanics and pointless side missions. So they decide to call you out and fuck with you.
Those are the best games.
