For example: Maybe a final boss is too hard and you've tried numerous times to defeat but just end up resorting to "cheesing" your way through.

Almost never. The last time I did it was a few years ago with Dragon Age: Origins. I couldn't beat the final boss, so I switched the difficulty all the way down.

I've used them occasionally. Usually if I can't be bothered to collect resources or a like. But never god mode. I do like do use no clip when I finished a game, sometimes you'll find rooms your not meant too.

I never cheat in games anymore, simply because I only cheat in Single Player, and most modern games don't have cheat codes coded in.

Back in the PS2 era and before though, I loved the stupid little things cheat codes did. The flying cars in the 3D GTA titles, the super "honk" jump in The Simpsons: Road Rage, the money cheat in The Sims... Cheating in a single player game is perfectly fine. It's not cheating out anyone but yourself, and can get you out of that frustrating level you just can't complete otherwise.

I usually only cheat in old singleplayer games that I already have beat. just to make it more fun.

Same exact thing that happened to me: I had built my party around a certain character which was then removed from my party, leaving me with my pants down against the boss.

I cheat to either save myself time or to have more fun with a game. Especially to remove artificial grinds from single player games.

Money cheats are useful and also cheating to increase exp/talent system in a game instead of grinding away like a zombie. I'm not gonna grind in a single player game when I can just find the values in cheat engine and have what I want. Games feel like work if the task you are doing is too repetitive.

Some games i rarely cheat at, simulation games like Civilization or Simcity or games where the whole point of the game is to make money by building a city or empire. One simulation game I do cheat in is Sims 4, using mostly just money cheats so i can actually play the game and not waste time grinding for money and never seeing my sims.

I have to be careful sometimes not to overdo it in cheats because its just too easy to get carried away. I don't usually cheat right at the start of a game unless i feel i'm wasting my time doing something or if i'm stuck on something.

Whenever I feel like it usually. I don't have all the time in the world to play games like many here seem to have so if I can condense a 40 hour game into 8 hours or less then I'm all for it considering I only play a couple of hours a week for as long as I find the game interesting then may go a few months before another game captures my interest enough to even install it. Usually I find myself playing 80's/90's console games because they are quick to pick up and play.

Modern games are so easy there is no need for cheats.

I tell a lie! I did cheat in RDR2! I could not find all the collectables, so I got the massive guide book to the game to help me find the stone carvings and the native american thingys.

I’ve tried to cheat in these games https://bestgamingthings.com/call-of-duty-list-of-game-series/. But just for fun and only in offline mode. Actually it was not really interesting..
