Why People Want to Cheat While Playing Games?
By this article I am going to talk about cheating on games. As my recent research showed, many people prefer playing games in unfair way. It is enough to go to the most popular video’s website called youtube and enter into search tab keywords: "hack" or "cheat". You will find a lot of videos with tutorials how to cheat on games like facebook games (farmville, cityville and all other) or any other games. The fact that these videos exist doesn’t mean that people are keen on cheating, but fact that these videos are watched by millions people is strong proof of that.
The fact that so many people want to cheat on games means something. So I ask myself why people want to cheat while playing the games? One of the answers which comes to my mind is that companies which are creating games, making them too hard and people can’t pass it without cheats. As a result companies may need to make games easier or give at least option for player to choose if he or she wants easy mode, normal mode or hard mode. However, I believe that even if such an options would be given, people would still be cheating on games, because some people cheat not because game is too hard, but because they are lazy, they don’t want play game in normal way, they want unlock everything at once without doing anything. For another group of players cheats are like gaming style. The game without cheats for them would be not interesting.
Is cheating on games something bad? The answer depends. It depends about what games we are talking. If we talk about offline games, I think that cheating is not something bad. Everyone can decide how do they want to play – in fair or unfair way. I say that there is nothing bad, because then you play games offline your unfair gaming style doesn’t hurt anyone. That is why I am against using cheats or hacks then you play online. By playing online with cheats you are distributing all other players who are playing fairly and making them angry. Moreover, almost all games online forbid using cheats and bans players for doing that, so using cheats online is illegal too.
So to sum up, I want to say that using cheats is new trend and I do not say that it is bad, just if you are using cheats you must make sure that it does not effect anyone else.
