15 Devious Game Cheats You Couldn't Resist When You Were Younger

Time to get all nostalgic and remember the cheats that were far too fun to avoid.

1. The Sims: moveObjects on

Typing CTRL + SHIFT + C followed by 'move_objects on' gave you complete control of your house. But instead of making home improvements, this was mainly used to catch your Sim in the shower and trap them inside a table.

3. Grand Theft Auto 3: Spawn A Rhino


A sequenced button bash on the PlayStation controller drops a tank right in front of you. What next? Well, you jump in and go on a mindless rampage with a vehicle impervious to damage. Endless fun.

5. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3: FREAKSHOW


Typing 'FREAKSHOW' into the 'Cheats' option unlocked ALL characters. Giving you the chance to skate with Darth Maul, Wolverine, Officer Dick, Private Carrera, Ollie The Magic Bum, Kelly Slater, Demoness, and the Neversoft Eyeball Man.

6. Sonic the Hedgehog 2: Debug Mode


Now this was a little tricky to execute but more than worth it in the end. By going to sound test and playing the tracks in a specific order, you were given complete control over the levels and the power of game design was left in your hands. I said it was worth it.

8. Mortal Kombat Genesis: Blood Mode


According to the 'experts', Mortal Komat was corrupting our youth and the home version of the game had to be censored. Fortunately, there was a cheat to get that much loved gore back into the game - pressing 'ABACABB' on the genesis controller.

10. Metal Gear Solid 3: The End


Just in case you didn't have a spare couple of hours to defeat the final boss, this cheat made things a little easier. By going to the hardware settings and advancing the clock a few years, you don't even have to bother fighting The End as he dies of old age!

14. Half-Life: Console Mode


Launching Half-Life in console mode provided endless amusement and a load of cheats to get Freeman through Black Mesa in one piece. Some of these options included invincibility and invisibility.
