The Good and The Bad Of The New Game Genie | VGutopia

Game Genie is making a comeback on the PlayStation 3, but is it a good thing? (PS3, Tech)

I think it would be fun to experiment with, just to bend & fold the game rules for fun.
But that's it.
& of course, it will net banned from online use.

I have a feeling Son will patch for it soon, and it will be unusable.

Absolutely! I'm all for bending and folding a game to my whims. I know most traditional gamers will be put off by this. I used to be. I think beating certain games are a sense of pride to most of us. I loved talking to friends, back in the day about beating a game they couldn't. When the genie came out, you were going to beat it with the game genie. It lost it luster when beating a game. I hated my brother,he would beat a game in a night that took me a few days.

Flash forward to today, I like to dissect tower defense games and a game genie lets me tear open the mechanics of the game that weren't possible before. Take pixel junk monsters for instance, I can beat all levels with just a arrow tower except 3 on all maps dlc too. I like to play it the way it wasn't meant to be played. Game Genie adds to the experience of it.

I have feelings about trophies being impacted but still no word on it.I hope trophies are blocked though and online play. I hope some people are open minded about the Game Genie.
