I love cheat codes! I usually will check to see if cheat codes exist for a game before I buy it. I love infinite power, lives, ammo, guns, etc.
The problem is most new games do not have any of these cheat codes. I remember games of the past having all kinds of cheats, but nowadays I'll be lucky if a game offers a code for a secret level.
Why is that? Why couldn't Deus Ex have a cheat that gave me unlimited ammo? Why couldn't I truly become a god in Infamous 1 & 2 where nothing could hurt me?
