Apologies for the reupload. Looks like this bypassed everyone's sub boxes first time round for some reason. Probably Jules' fault somehow.

Not really a punishment, but in Stanley Parable, typing sv_cheats 1in the console command will send you into the Serious Room where the Narrator condemns you there for billions of years. Doing it again will have him condemn you for infinity years, and doing it one more time will have him give up and simply leave.

This is a PC game, but I'm just gonna add Undertale. If you hack the game files or the game bugs out on a neutral ending, the phone call Sans gives you does not talk about the monsters who survived. Instead, he says, "If you get this ending, please contact the developer. If you don't, chances are--" His eyes go blank "Y O U R E J U S T A D I R T Y H A C K E R, A R E N T Y O U ."

Nobody fucking cares about all this, they all cheat in games even today and now, and lets talk about GTA, who the fuck wants 100% game completion? NOBODY! they all have fun using cheats and killing anyone they see and doing shit they want, regardless of doing or ignoring missions. GTA=FUN, GTA+CHEATS=ULTIMATE PLEASURE! besides, using cheats in single player games doesnt hurt anyone or break any rules but if it was multiplayer then its a completely different story.

Author daveincognito ( ago)
Mechwarrior on the SNES had an invincibility code. If you overused that code then the game would create invincible flying soldiers when you destroyed a mech. The work-around was to take a bit of damage before you input the code; when I did that, I didn't see those flying soldiers again. It still didn't make the game much easier, seeing how you had to defend bases from a ton of mechs that just didn't want to go down.

I like how you say never, yet forget you can use hex editors and other's alike and edit whatever you want if its a game on pc. Or even emulated.

I'm disappointed that you didn't add Paper Mario: The thousand years door. Yes the game also punish you for cheating and it's scary.

*Banjo-Kazooie* -- I typed in many cheat codes and it didn't erase my save file ever. This only works if you have the Memory Pak inserted to the controller while playing and you happen to have games saved to that.

Saints Row. Once you activate a cheat, it will remove your ability to unlock console achievements. But this is only if you cheat on the saved game you are playing at the moment. If you restart the game with a new saved game, the wall will be lifted. So there isn't a lot of risk in cheating in those game at all, unless you want to prove that you have actually played Saints Row.

What's the point of putting cheats in a game, if you're going to punish those who use it?

Author Christopher Kidwell ( ago)
The moral of this video is that some game makers are dicks, forget that the games in question are YOUR PROPERTY after you buy them from them, and you should have the right to cheat in them if you so wish to!
Now preventing you from getting achievements is fine and dandy. Breaking cartridges and doing other bullcrap like that? Not acceptable and if I remember correct, the makers of Donkey Kong 64 got sued over that and had to make a public apology.

Author Mark Jacobs ( ago)
the gta 3D era games never actually punished you for cheating... Some cheats however did overwrite parts of code that after saving became stuck in the savefile and caused mission code to behave different from how it should resulting in uncompletable missions. So yeah, that's why some games warn you about using cheats... Actively punishing people for cheats however seems unnecessary though since developers could've just not implemented them...

Cheat codes should be rewards for players who enjoyed their games fully, not punishable offenses. If I beat a game fully, especially free roam single player games, I'd want to mess around, and whats a better way to do that than to use cheat codes?

Author Jite25 ( ago)
The worst one was the mole in animal crossing (any). He (Mr. Resetti) always acted like during off the console to correct a mistake was cheating or something. But it also couldnt tell the difference between an obvious act (like win a random prize on a certain day and then turning it off/on to redo it) vs having a power outage.

Author Valentine Diablo ( ago)
How about a video that features one of a kind rewards for completing the whole story of a game? The Idea came from Nier, a game with 4 different endings, each new one accessable after finishing the one before. And if you ultimately finish the last ending, that game will delete all your saves. Thats not a glitch, thats your reward. Or maybe punishment for staying inside in front of the concole for too long. however, i'd like to know if there are more games that feature something incrediby unique for finishing it completely ( not necessarily talking about getting 100% achievements, but it could also be used )

Why do game developers care if you cheat? Unless it's a multiplayer where you can be a troll to everyone, it seems petty for developers to spend time and energy trying to get get back at cheaters especially if we're talking about built in cheat codes.

Tomb Raider II have a little diffrent cheat kode. You have to equip a flare to make it work. When you do the cheat kode without it Lara will explode. Jupind forward is to skip a level, and jumping backward is for guns.

Oh no entering a cheat will stop you getting achievements whatever will we do? Not care because achievements add nothing to the experience so really it's not much of a punishment it's more of a reward because the stupid notifications can fuck off? Oh

I cheated on GTA V and I have the game 100 percent.

Not being able to get achievements after using cheats isn't really a punishment it' makes sense they want achievements worked for that's why it's called that

G-Police did this. You can input a cheat for a level, no problem, but it won't advance you to the next level if you do.

Actually, the exploding Lara in Tomb Raider 2 happens if the player doesn't input the code correctly. The exploding Lara trick can be done in Tomb Raider 3, resulting in a softer explosion than the previous part.

Why do devs care if people who bought the game cheat? That's low ass pettiness right now. I paid for it, I should be able to play with however I damn well please.

Author Redza Abbashy ( ago)
Actually, in Tomb Raider 2, Lara doesn't explode when you try to cheat, she explodes when you did the steps to activate a cheat _incorrectly_.

Author Julio Brian ( ago)
I remember the cheat in Legend of Zelda, Link's Awakening. I did that cheat ONLY once in, and my punishment was INSTANT DEATH when I went back in the store immediately.

I think the "THIEF" renaming was for those who used the item before going back to the store...

There was another good one from one of the battletoads games (battletoads vs double dragon, i think). If you used a game genie to win, instead of the normal ending, the end boss would chew you out, saying "We may be bad guys, but at least we don't cheat!" So not only was it still ridiculously hard in spite of your cheating, you still have no idea how it's supposed to end, so it was all for nothing.
