Should Wii Gamers Use Cheat Codes?

Apr 29, 2008
Game cheats for the Nintendo Wii are becoming increasing popular, but is this a good or a bad thing? Let's explore the reasons behind using cheat codes for the Wii so can decide for yourself if you should use them.

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 the big games console manufacturers say is state of the art, others say are big steps backwards in the gameplay arena. Nintendo however have solved many of these problems by bringing interactivity and simplicity back to the gaming market. Nintendo actually took the level of gaming interactivity to be something much bigger and better than anyone every expected.

Never before outside of an arcade have people become so involved in video game play and never before have people been forced to get off their armchairs to play video games. However, it was without surprise that this new revolution would soon get flooded by Wii game cheats for all those that wanted them.

So what are game cheats for Wii?

Wii cheats are special codes that you use to fix the game play in order to take an advantage or get special features. This allows you to boost your abilities, or cheat in a game that a normal player would not get.

When are cheat codes a bad thing?

It's a fact that cheating can take a lot of the fun out of video gaming and people that create or use the Wii cheat codes are usually those that miss the point of video games. Playing Wii games is all about the interaction and skills of the player, so to use cheats to try and get an artificial advantage just to finish the game sooner is something that most gamers will not do. Why? Because it can ruin the game by taking the challenge and fun out of it for the player(s) involved. If you use cheats for this reason then you will simply miss out on many of the things that the Wii was built to do. Also, don't forget that by cheating you will finish a game sooner which means you are wasting money on your games.

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!

Nintendo Wii video games are developed for optimum player interaction and in most circumstances cheats are designed to give someone an unfair advantage. It doesn't make sense to cheat just because you can. By removing the skill and interaction from a game you don't have much left.

Do yourself a favor and avoid game cheats for Wii unless you get really stuck and need a little bit of help to get you through a level. Try and play the games the way they were meant to be played and you will soon discover the whole point behind the Wii is to bring the fun back to video games. Cheating for the sake of it takes the fun away.
