TBH though, this debate is all about perspective, to give another example; drugs vs meds.

All meds ARE drugs, however plenty of people will only consider illegal substances to be drugs whilst anything legal (whether OTC or Prescription) will be considered medications.


I get what you're saying but what about legal substances that are only illegal if you don't have a piece of paper saying you can have it? I don't think that metaphor works too well lol

That's my entire point though, people's perspective changes based on the legality, prescription drugs are considered meds (with the piece of paper) but if obtained illegally those very same substances are seen as 'drugs'.

At this point, there are some hidden secrets in games that are almost impossible unless you use a walkthrough. So no, not cheating. Hacking the game beyond its intent is cheating.

Something being too hard to do without cheating doesn't stop cheating being cheating. Hidden secrets are supposed to be . . . . hidden secrets (ie that's the intent).

Nope, I don’t think it’s cheating. Some games, if you do or say the wrong thing it’ll come back to bite you in the ass later and I hate that. (Looking at you, King’s Quest series!) So I want to know if I insult that dog in front of me now, will it cause the destruction of that town down the road in an hour? (Sounds like fun, actually.)

Who cares what others think? Getting through a game on your own isn't a badge of honor, you know? If that's how someone gauges their life, that's sad.

However, how is using a walkthrough enjoyable?

nah. don't see how knowing ahead of the time is cheating, except in this case, you didn't earn it via playing the game blind the first time.
Here's an idea to make that rabbit harder: give him Gaea Rage. And don't even have the damage: just make it crash the game and delete your saves.

That's just your justification for doing it and it IS a valid justification, that doesn't stop it being what it is.

If games wanted you to know what a choice does before choosing it, they'd let you know before doing them.

My backlog is so immense, I don't consider a walkthrough for ANYTHING to be "cheating".
