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.
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.
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.
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.
