  1. OFF:
    Cheating is ok if you're doin it for fun, not for progression to higher levels, or to win a multiplayer game.

    The face of cheating was changed when "bot" type programs appeared, they we're and still are the highest on my despise list.

    Though I remember in the days of MSN Gaming Zone in a Age of Empires I game, in the lobby I forgot to look if the cheats we're enabled, and I got rushed not by troops, but by cars.

    ON topic:

    I see dead people Warcraft III

    I'm quite a 'old school' gamer(first Playstation etc) but I don't think I've ever seen that so you must be talking about pacman old school or even before that hahaha =/

    The cheat codes I remember the most are ones on Duke Nukem Time to Kill, Apocalypse(Bruce Willis did the voice acting) and Grand Theft Auto games.

    Duke Nukem had things like infinite ammo and infinite health so you could just charge through it and I still enjoyed it, good story, music and feel... "Mmm Bacon bits" haha =P

    Apocalypse was the same but even though I had infinite health, ammo and lives you could still die because of the way the levels were designed for example you could fall to your death in some of the levels or you could fall into magma =/

    And Grand Theft Auto(San Andreas mostly) had the great spawning cheats like to spawn a Rhino(tank) or a Hydra(harrier jump jet) weapon cheats and making your character fat or muscle y,

    And being honest I'm the only one out of my friends that completed San Andreas to about 90%+ without using cheats(almost had all the tags =D).

    Cheats for systems before memory cards are what make this thread significant imo. Those codes that made you feel invincible, well as invincible as a game w/o a memory card could make you.
  18. Super C: Up, down, Up, down, A,B,A,B, select, start .... 10 lives I beleive.
  19. Sonic 2 on the Megadrive.
    Play music 19, 65, 9, 17 in the options in that order, then do up down left right A+Start on the opening screen to get the level select.

    Sonic 3 on the MD was hard as hell to execute.
    The moment you after the Sega logo fades from black to white and you see Sonic rolling in you have about 1 second to press Up Up Down Down Up Up Up Up to get the level select.

    Can't think of any others. Didn't really cheat in games obviously. Either that or I just cheated so much I think I'm legitimately playing the games!
  20. Down, R, Up, L, Y, B ---- Street Fighter 2 for SNES to pick the same character.
