    Very little actually. I only used cheats on Final Fantasy IV, TWEWY, and New Super Mario Bros so far.

    hm, that's a lot of thinking.
    uhm, i haxed a few "unobtainable" legends into my pokemon save, for personal usage(not trading/wifi battling with them).
    and i did testing with camera haxing for OOT style camera in LoZ PH.
    and i downloaded a completed save for jus after completing the game and unlocking a large amount of characters myself.

    for GBA i used an unlock all cheat on medabots AX, but that was because i'd have to trade parts to get all which doesn't work with a DS.

    Almost all the time, except if the game was fun (like TWEWY, PW), then I'll try my best to ignore [Cheats(Y)], other than that, I play each game with cheats, provided theere are cheats for them. Except for ones that don't have cheats (Like, Taiko no Tatsujin, up until a month ago, at least)

    I cheat randomly. Usually its because i'm board and want to mess around with making mario invincible and just run through destroying things, or in FPS's to try out later guns. But i never save when cheating. Or if i do, its on another save slot. I don't use them to get further in the game, just for effing around. Its a good time waster [​IMG]

    Oh, and i usually cheat in the Lego games because i like the stories, i just hate worrying about hitting the Jedi/Ultra/Hero whatever levels of collecting the "coin" legos. I played the hell out of LEGO Star Wars 2 (original cart, glitched to shit and back) and now doing that on the newer games seems like a waste of time to me. lol

    not very often, although i have been using them on final fantasy iv, however....
    it kinda defeats the object of most games, most of the time, especially the unlock codes.

    I preatty much only use infiniate lives in games like mario and sonic... unless it destroys the game, like nanostray or something. Overall there's only a very few games I cheat with, since it mostly ruins the point I think.

    I cheat at a "Moderate" level.
    I usually cheat on games that require many hours of effort to unlock features and such.

    Very rarely. I will use a cheat to get over a place I may be stuck in a game, or after I beat a game, but I generally don't use them.

    well, I hate cheating... I once nearly did it... but then luckily didn't do it on that one fateful game ^^.

    I did it on SM 64 and Resident Evil for the fun (lol @ burning zombies)...

    Other than that ? To unlock normally ununlockable stuff. And once in Tales of Innocence because I was bored of the last endboss... I might finish it one day... but that will take ALOT of grinding.

    So to sum it up:

    Normally I want to avoid cheating, except if I'm so bored by a game that I don't want to complete it. The only games that ever got that procedure so far are:

    Supermario 64 DS, Resident Evil DS, Tales of Innocence.

    The other cheats I ever used were only for the lol and in no wise for the sake of finishing the game.

    about 1% of the time, I try never to use cheats as if I can't complete a game then cheating would destroy the whole purpose so it's best to just give up, the only time I would use AR, however, is if a game makes me very frustrated by I still want to play on to the end due to something interesting or compelling about it (e.g. storyline, unlockables) one example of this was with Dementium:the ward, the save system with that game was so horrid and frustrating that I just gave up on the game entirely, later on I heard that the game had a very compelling storyline with a twist at the end, eager to discover it for myself whilst maintaining my sanity, I used the infinite health cheat (but no other) to complete the game and IMO it was worth it because the ending is TWISTED!

    Not really at all.
    I cheated on Metroid prime Hunters, with testing my codes, and also the colour modifiers.
    But then I used auto-trainer maker, and I have the colours built in.

    Nope don't cheat.

    I do like to use codes or whatever to get into places the developers don't want you to get into.

    Almost never, unless it's an unending grind or whenever I really get pissed off at random encounters. Also when I'm bored and I already finished the game.
