Video Game Cheats And Codes
Metal Gear Nes Game that I've had to use codes on.
Using video game cheat codes to advance in a game. As an avid old school gamer this is my take on the subject.
Most of us have played video games. Often there are certain games or levels that we can't finish no matter how hard we try. Since the 1980's there have been various codes to assist our gameplay so that we can win a game. I personally only use cheats if absolutely necessary. I am the type who will play for hours and research online for hints before using codes as a last resort. I mainly play the older systems like the Atari 2600, NES, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis and N64 but I do occasionally play with my Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo Wii and Sony Playstation 2. I started using cheats back in the 1980's and I am sure us older gamers remember the Game Genies or using a controller on a certain screen to push various buttons in order to unlock something or obtain more lives, power, weapons, etc.
My opinion on gaming play in regards to codes
I stated in previous paragraph that I use these as last resorts and many gamers nowadays just use them all the time. I feel this defeats the purpose of gaming because you feel more satisfaction stumbling through levels and trying again and again to defeat a level or a boss. When you do it on your own you feel much better about yourself. But even I have had to have help to beat a game. Many games, especially the newer ones, have multiple codes. You can be invincible, unlimited ammo, invisible and pretty much you can just walk through the game without any difficulty. What I do is just use a code or two to give me just enough help to complete a level or game. Sometimes just a few extra lives, continues, more ammo, power supply and obtaining advanced weapons early on will help you complete the game. You still may struggle but that is what I like, using the least amount of assistance to complete a game. Feel free to comment on how you play video games or just any video game related thought.
Prima is one of the premier strategy game publishers.
What you decide to do with your gaming is up to you
What you decide to do with your gaming is up to you but before using all the codes, try the game a few times without any codes and then use minimal amount of cheats to be able to complete your level or game. It may still be hard but that is what gaming is all about. If all games were easy why would we need to play them? I hope you enjoyed this hub and these are just my views on gaming from an old school gamer.

Do you use Cheat Codes?
I own this book. I find it useful though I don't use it often.
Looks interesting for the newer systems. My son has a few books for the newer systems.
