Do Cheat Codes have a Place in Modern Video-Games?

GPT: "Most gamers over the age of fifteen should remember a time when the majority of video-games had a plethora of cheat codes to “enhance” the gameplay experience. Whether these were solely aesthetic or offered in-game advantages varied, but it's safe to say that a large majority of games during and before the last generation of gaming offered some kind of means to cheat. This took a drastic change with the current (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii) era where barely any games offer cheat codes."

Answer: Yes, as long as they don't enable cheating towards trophies/achievements or online.

Games are getting progressively easier and easier it seems. I haven't used a cheat for years. Used to use them all of the time back in my PS2/PS1 days. In fact, I think GTAIII was the last game I seriously used cheats on...increased gore/pedestrians riot/decreased gravity with better car handling was awesome. I think they should go ahead and include cheats for people who want to use them...just don't let them get trophies or 100% completion of the game...Vice City style.

I'm all for cheat codes, offline. Completion and trophies are whatever... Online is the only place I don't like to see cheats of any kind.

Since stuff is generally not difficult enough for cheats, I can't really see them being used anymore.
