Video Games and “Cheating”

I’ve noticed that where ever you game, there are always people using things to have an unfair advantage over the competition. There are mods, codes or products that can be used. There is one on Facebook that people use, that is causing a commotion. It automatically goes through your friends feeds, and collects rewards and gifts that they post. It also gives you the option to accept and deny all gifts at once. Now people are mad, because they consider this cheating. Honestly, I don’t see the problem. Some people have work, or kids and they can’t be on Farmville or Frontierville all hours of the day and night, waiting for there friends to post the things they need. It’s not hurting anyone. It’s funny, because these same people are always complaining about accepting and denying there gifts all at once, and they want Zynga to make a “Accept all” button for gifts. Seriously? Grow up, and let people do what they want. It’s the internet. There is no control. I know, I know, you want to whine, bitch and complain about everything there is, just because you have no way to deal with the problems you have at home. Deal with it, or quit playing the damn games.
Onto real gaming… I’ve noticed from playing my XBox 360, that there are modded controllers out there, that give you that few second edge over the competition. Honestly, this bothers me. A few seconds can be the difference between winning and losing. If you want to pay a pretty penny for a modded controller, then honestly, you need a life. There are more important things in this life, then winning at a video game, just so you can be cool before the lobby closes. Another one I heard about is a Lag Switch. I don’t know if it is real, or not, but I will tell you what I know. A lag switch basically slows the internet so when you’re playing, people can’t tell where exactly you are. I’ve seen stuff like this from people with bad connections on Halo. There in one place one second, and the next there gone. If this is a real thing, all I can say again, get a life. Seriously, you make the game mean nothing if you cheat. You see what happens to people who cheat in sports? They don’t play anymore!

In the end, people cheat at everything. There’s not a whole lot to do, besides bitch. I bitch along with the rest of you when I see the modders on XBox. All that we can do is just deal. You Facebook freaks… Just deal, if Zynga considers it cheating, then do something, until then, deal.
