game cheatsWe were taught to believe that cheating was a cardinal sin. But apparently, the people who spout it aren’t video gamers by any stretch of the imagination. Looking at the surplus of websites that host cheat codes and assorted guides one wouldn’t be wrong in assuming that memorizing cheat codes and remembering which ones to use is a gaming super-skill in itself.

Video games are challenges in themselves; it’s just that cheat codes make them more interesting. From 8 bit games of old to today’s massively multiplayer online games and even Facebook games like Farmville, cheat codes are a part of the gaming culture.

Use them or abhor them, here are ten gaming websites to go to for game cheat codes.

The most popular procedures – breast augmentation, facelifts and liposuction – all have something in common.

    Are you a movie buff and love collecting banners and posters of motion pictures? Search for them online at platforms like Madred.org. This website has a huge repository of movie banners and stills from motion pictures stored in the form of high resolution images. Add them to your collection and smile.

    I remember ages ago, when the only site you needed was Captain Code. It was a dedicated cheats search engine, and gave you results you could organise as you wished. Don't know if it's still around, or indeed if it's still any good.

      No, it doesn't seem to be around anymore. Could have closed down or renamed itself.

    Is this list really relevant? All these sites already steals all their codes from one another to begin with, plus all usually have some link to Gamefaqs (a literal text link, and a metaphorical link.)

      You would want multiple sources. There's Wikipedia, but we don't stop searching do we :) 250000 cheat codes at GameFaqs is huge, but then these sites are also about things other than cheat codes.

        True, though I can't trust IGN as far as I can throw them when it comes to reviews.

    Nothing wrong with cheat codes -- sure, make yourself invincible in single player, give yourself all the weapons or skip to your favorite level. There's a reason that so many are integrated into games -- have fun!

    But please, keep it out of multiplayer. Don't ruin other people's fun.

      Agree. When it comes to single player games, they have saved me a lot of hair-splits :) But my own guess is that cheat codes aren't as common as they used to be, or am I wrong?

        Tough to say. There are other ways to cheat these days -- I don't think there are cheat codes in Skyrim, but someone could use the editor to make custom items that grant godlike powers.
