I once was a person that might have used the odd cheat code in a good old Amiga game. But as I got older, I understood that being the highest level or wiping out planets with my starfighter wasn't what gave me pleasure. It is going from a noob pilot to an ace. All thumbs to twitchy reflexes of a cat. Beating the game, and knowing that I did it. Yes, it means that some games I just scream at, because I'm more of a drooling old cat than a fence jumping nimble one, but I still enjoy the journey.
Hopefully all those HEX editors script kiddies GenY'ers out there only need a little bit of time before they too learn what it means to be a gamer.
