Are you a cheater? Many people pride themselves on their gaming abilities. There are scores of very serious gamers out there. Some gamers turn their hobby into a profession by playing pro.

Sometimes it's fun just to get in there and mess with things.
Cheating in video games can be thought of almost as a game itself. Spending time searching for hidden passageways, different modes, Easter eggs, and glitches can add an additional element to gameplay.
