They made some older games even more enjoyable. you could do things like make characters tiny, bobble heads, invisible, make all buildings throwable, or unlock unique gear and charecters you couldn't get naturally. They added to the fun of the games and were completely optional. So why did such a fun feature die out?

We've been over this many times before, but your dumb ass couldn't read back then.

Were there any games in 2015 that had cheat codes?

From what I see, cheat codes got replaced or mixed among console commands. Literally every decent game engine (and even some shit ones) allow you to bring up command line where you can input commands.

I always loved how cheat codes spread when I was in primary school. One kid would get told one by his cousin, then he'd be hot shit for a week while he showed off the new cheat code he learned. Then he'd tell somebody, or somebody would watch him use it enough that they worked it out, they'd tell everyone, and it'd be all over the school.
I miss shit like this.

You cant make money off guides and cheat magazines anymore since you can just look it up on the net

they still have cheat codes in modern games, they're just usually 16 characters long and on a plastic card in your wallet

console codes aren't the same thing because they exist for debugging reasons.

>>323435640
Where's the correlation between cheats and those?

Also GTA confirmed for best cheats. Cars can fly.

>>323435491
That is debug code

GTA V kinda counts.

It's not debugging if it was left in the open for the release version.

yes it is. It doesn't stop having a purpose if it stay in the coding. Games have content that has been cut but still in the coding as well as stuff that has been cut that remains in the open, the fucking bridge door in bloodborne comes to mind.

It still exist for debugging purposes.

IDCLIP. Greatest code of all time.
