StandingInMotion Posted May 1, 2009 Report Share Posted May 1, 2009 I have never had the luxury of using a GameGenie, ActionReplay, or any of those other nifty little cheat devices. When people say, "Ahh cheats... those were the days," I have no idea what you mean. Sure, I knew what cheats were at the time, but if you're going to cheat through a game, why even bother to play it or enjoy it? Personally, I think it takes all the enjoyment out of a game if you cheat. When my aunt bought me Pokemon Silver, she also bought me a device called the "Monster Brain" I believe... it was a useful little tool for backing up all sorts of games (used it for games that could only hold one saved file on the cartridge), but it was specially designed to give you nearly 100% control over your Pokemon games. Want a Charizard that knows Surf, Psychic, Hyper Beam, and Flamethrower, all of which having 40PP, and maxed out stats? You simply change your pokemon number to match that of Charizard, and select the abilities you want it to have, and so forth. You could edit items, badges, money, literally everything! No codes were needed at all. I used that feature once, and lost all interest in my game. For me, using a cheat makes me think, "So what's the point, then?" I never use cheats to play through games... I just don't like to. The only time I use a cheat is when I've already mastered a game, and I'm just doing it to explore glitches and bugs and whatnot. Call me old-fashioned or whatever, but hearing people complain about not having cheats or whatever just makes me roll my eyes. There is no game too difficult to beat without cheats.
