  • FinalCause reply Yeah, we play single player games for our own entertainment and for that there are no rules.
  • Nalloc reply YES the tree makes a sound.... if you walk into a pole and no one saw it you still walked into a pole lol . and it is cheating because it's not the way the game is meant to be played as well as you are cheating yourself.
  • LuminousDragon reply 1. act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage, especially in a game or examination. ----------------- I think it is usually silly to call it cheating, because, using the definition above, who are you being dishonest to, and who is it unfair to? With the exception of something like speedrunning a level and trying to beat another players time, its not cheating. And even then, you aren't cheating in the game, just the META game of speedrunning. What people really mean is that people who do those things aren't challenging themselves, and perhaps "cheating themselves out of their full potential" or the games full experience.
  • Drivermontana reply Don't know why you would cheat yourself in a game it's pointless cus you don't get the same satisfaction in beating a boss or completing a game, unless you were really bad at the game and wanted to get to the next level etc.
