Why Use Game Cheats On The Nintendo Wii?

Apr 25, 2008
As more and more games are released on the Nintendo Wii and the popularity of the console increases significantly, the number of game cheat codes we see available also increases. However, should game cheats be seen a bad or good thing? Let's examine the main reasons why gamers use game cheats for the Nintendo Wii, so that you can decide for yourself if you should use them or not.

Nintendo created the Wii console for an audience that was growing increasingly alienated by the difficult game play and complexity of many of newer breed of video and computer games. More and more often, new games have turned into film like sequences where player's can only follow fixed paths and perform limited tasks. Although often beautiful looking, these video games lose much of the entertainment, skill, and fun that was evident in traditional style games.

What computer and video game producers saw as the latest state of the art games, others saw as a huge step backwards in game play and interactivity. The Nintendo Wii was specifically designed to solve these constraints by bringing fun and interactivity back in to the gaming market. They actually took this interactivity to a level that had never been seen before and have attracted a whole new breed of gamers.

Never before had gamers been so involved in the game play, and for the first time people actually had to get off their sofas to play their video games. The Wii has revolutionized the world of computer and video gaming. However, it was inevitable that this new revolution would soon get bombarded by Wii cheat codes for anyone that wanted them.

So what are game cheats for Wii?

Game cheats are special sequences of codes that you can get off the Internet, or from gaming magazines. You can then enter the codes into your Wii console. These codes then allow you to gain special abilities within a game, or even bypass certain sections or levels of a game altogether.

Why game cheats can be a bad thing

Wii cheat codes can take much of the fun out of Wii games. This is because the gamer will miss the whole purpose of what it means to play games the way they are meant to be played. Games on a Wii are based upon interaction between the player and the game, so using cheats to try and get an false advantage just so you can finish a game faster is something that true game players should not ever do. It can ruin a game and takes most of the entertainment and challenge out of it. If you abuse Wii game cheats for this purpose then you will miss out on many skills and challenges that Nintendo designed the Wii to do. Not only that, but video games can be expensive so cheating to finish a game sooner is wasting your hard earned cash.

When are game cheats good?

All gamers at some point have been stuck on a level of game that they just cannot get past. You may only be half way through the game and no matter how hard you try you just cannot get to next stage. In these occasions, a game cheat can assist you to finish the level before carrying on without using the cheat, therefore allowing you to get much more game play than otherwise possible.

Think before you cheat!

Wii video games are designed with player interaction in mind, so cheating to get an unfair advantage is kind of missing the point. It really makes no sense to start punching in cheat codes just for the sake of it, because by removing the skill and interaction from a game you have nothing left.

It's best to avoid using cheat codes on the Wii if you can, but every now and again it's worth using a code if you get really stuck and just need a bit of help with a tricky level or baddie. Cheating just because you can takes all the fun away!
