With all the video games we play, eventually we will become stuck on a particularly nasty boss or annoyingly challenging level. Thankfully, the internet is loaded with things other than porn and sneezing panda videos – there are cheat websites, too. These sites, run by gamer like you and me, are designed for one reason: to get people to be Charlie Sheen (that is to say, to get them winning). With hundreds of websites for gamers out there, I took the liberty of selecting the three that I find the most helpful and easy to use. So, here we go: the three best cheat code websites out there.
Cheat Code Central (www.cheatcc.com)
With a sleek interface and more than just lists of cheat codes, Cheat Code Central is a great website and community for gamers. Featuring articles on new games, a vast forum, and categoric listings of games and systems, Cheat CC is a hit among those looking to ream that latest villain or dark wizard in their game of choice.
Game guides on this site are to the point and no non-sense, which is great when you are balancing a laptop, controller, and bag of chips in your greasy hands as you scour the internet for some quick victory tips. The search feature on the website is a standard Google-based operation, but the search results are quick and to the pint nonetheless. Overall, Cheat CC is a great site for quick fixes.
Games Radar (www.gamesradar.com/cheats)
Before I go on, I will say that Games Radar is probably the weakest site on this list. The reason it is on here is simple: the cheats—as in the actual codes to input to get free crap—are laid out simply and they are extremely easy to find, unlike many sites where you have to pry apart every link and bit of text to find how to get the Super Stabber Sword in Final Fantast VCCBX.
Like I said, Games Radar is not the best site on this list. The site, while easy to navigate and well-lit, is often hiding behind advertisements that you must click “Proceed to Page” to escape – obviously we want to proceed to the page! As well as that, the guides for the games are usually just simple text files slapped together by some loser in Algeria – not terribly helpful. But, like I said, the actual codes are easy to find and simple to look up.
IGN is easily the best site on this list for one specific reason: it is a community site – it is not strictly devoted to gaming guides and cheat codes. That being said, the game guides are phenomenal and cheat codes are easy to find, like in the other two sites. However, the content and community on this site is tremendously good. Daily articles on everything from games to television and movies keep visitors informed and vast forums keep them entertained.
Actual gaming assistance on the site is the best. Game guides are almost always in color (and you even have the option of reading the crappy Algerian text-based guides!) and each game has its own sections like FAQs, Walkthroughs, Reviews, and Cheats. With the sprawling network of like-minded people on and fresh content, combined with a clean layout and superior web design, IGN is easily the best cheat code – nay, make that gaming site in general – website.Three Best Cheat Code Websites,
