    You know, stuff like "B A ? A C ? ? A" (BARACUDA) from Sonic 3D Blast.
    When's the last time you saw them, not counting FPS games?
    No, I'm not counting the konami code's variations for nostalgia.

    Last time I saw one was for a PS2 game, Mr. Mosquito. It unlocked a little minigame, though, not cheats.

    I guess because with modern debuggers and development environments the developers don't need built-in codes to jump to specific levels in order to test them?

    thanks to the internet achievements and trophies in game button cheats will remain part of the game history and are hardly ever used.

    I used them most in the days of Spyro: Season of Ice/Flame and other games I played then.

    Now I'm used to using the developer's console in games like Garry's Mod and such (though I have used it before in other games that had a console, like Star Trek: Voyager: Elite Force).

    Just trying to think if there were any DS games I used them on.

    Therefore, Red Dead Redemption does it too.
