In this day and age it's mostly lack of Time! I cheat to save my Time, to see the story of a game with less time consumed as possible.

For me it is,

- Saves time. This could be the grind, which I'd prefer to skip, or a part of a game that I'm having trouble completing.
- Timers. Prefer to do things at my own pace without having to race a clock.

I believe Alpha Centauri was the first game I discovered that I could modify files to obtain certain desirable (and unintended undesirable) effects.

After passing the game originally I just wanted a means to play it as if my character were a god that commanded everything. I also wanted the ability to play through all the other factions to see the other aspects of the game without some of the frustrations I had experienced in the vanilla play. That was about the same time I stumbled onto a trainer for Diablo II and I was hooked.

Admittedly for a time I wasn't even playing the game through and just started playing with the trainers from the start. I've since reverted back to playing them through first and then looking for a trainer if I feel the game warrants replay. Employing trainers from the beginning certainly helped me reduce my backlog of titles, but I find I do enjoy them a bit more when I complete the games without the trainer first.

Time constraints, wanting to know the story, not feeling like wanting a challenge, there's a ton of reasons I could list, but if I had to choose one.

The price, 30 dollars for -lifetime- trainers to THOUSANDS of game titles..

-this-is-a-bargain- I just wish I had a better economy so I stop feeling like a bitter old man at a all you can eat buffet, who's already had 3 servings, is more or less full, but still walks over to the side-dish section and takes small-pickings to top himself off..

Frustration with repeating a difficult part over and over, and lack of time. There were instances where I wanted to keep trying but just didn't have time due to work and other responsibilities. Now that I'm retired I have more time, but less patience so I still put a cheat on if things are getting bogged down.

Well, you see, we were having problems in our marriage and we had drifted apart. I met someone who really understood me and we hit it off. One thing led to another after a long discussion and it just happened...

Oh, wait, wrong definition of "cheat".

ha ha

hey, too bad there wasn't a 'real life' cheat. Think of the possibilities . . . lottery tickets, sleeping with Pink, never getting fat . . .

I think the first time I ever cheated, or even knew there were cheats, was Blood 2.
The part at the Library, where it always crashes.
I tried looking to get someone elses save game to get past it, and a buddy said 'just use a trainer'. I said 'what is a trainer?', and he told me.
And, the trainer allowed me to get past the Library crash because I went faster through it or something?
Anyway, I didnt have to use someone elses save game.
After that, I started using no-cd cracks, because I got sic of taking a cd out and putting another one in. I play game 1, then game 2, then game 3, then game 4, then game 5, then maybe back to 1 2 3 or 4 again, then quit. So, it was a LOT of cd swapping to do. Back then anyway. 90's on up.
I usually only get a cheat now if its a hard game, harder than I expected it to be, and I die every 2 minutes, or if the game does not have a difficulty setting, I HATE when devs do that, lazy *guys*, or if I cant finish a boss battle.
But, lately, I find myself using the trainers to get through a game that is just freaking boring. And there are a LOT of games out there that are boring nowadays. Thank God for steam refund, lol.
And, I hate to say it, but I am getting up there in years, and my hand is not so steady anymore, and my brain doesnt think fast enough because I am on serious meds, so I need a trainer just to play some games.
