I was reading an article about devices that let players put code into games in order to exploit and create bugs in the game. I never knew that it was possible to do things like this. The coding can help the player in the game by allowing them to skip levels, get better items in the game, or minimize damage. On the contrary, there are times when this can actually cause more damages. The codes can cause glitches and in turn give the player more dangers in the game. For example, in Super Mario, the player could be stuck in an endless loop in a level.
When thinking about these devices, I believe that they defeat the purpose of the game. The point of playing games is to struggle through them. The fun of the game is when you can finally get over the hard level or challenge that you have been struggling to accomplish. If the player cheats the level, then there is no fun left.
