Cheating can be cool... against the computer. It lets you punch in codes for extra lives, bonus powers and even goofy stuff like giving your football players giant heads. If you're stuck, a cheat is a great way to make it to the next level. But what about cheating against real people?
How fun is it to cheat against your friends? It might be a laugh but it SUCKS to be on the receiving end of a cheater.
When you play against people online you're there to play a fair game - may the best player win. Cheating is disrespectful. Cheaters don't give you a fair game, they're cyber-bullies. It's totally not cool.
I was playing a game of capture the flag online one time where the blue team was blasting my red team into next week with super strong weapons. My whole team was mad cuz we didn't know what was happening. Eventually I found out that all the blue guys were cheating to get super weapons and armor. Aaarrgh! What a bunch of losers. We called them names, ditched them and found other people to play with.
Getting cheated on sucked. There were about ten of us getting our butts kicked for almost two hours. I could've watched Spy Kids, played Pokemon, listened to Mel C, or read a book instead and it would've been way more fun.
