Doom. my 12 year old ass was so excited when I learned about IDDQD and IDKFA. I do not remember HOW I learned about it, since the Internet wasn't a thing back then.

Somehow I feel not everyone here understands what a CHEAT is.

A cheat is a string you type in a console or console-like GUI element to obtain some effect. Or even press a sequence of keys to get the effect working (without a console or something visual, just typing/key presses).

Nowadays, almost everyone using trainers call the OPTIONS 'cheats'. Why, I don't have a fucking idea. Those are HACKS (or any other meaning you wanna give it: mods, patches, hooks, etc.). Not cheats. Hex-editing save-games, altering config files so something is run for you that gives you money or god.. those are mechanisms that imply cheating (as in you, the player, cheating to obtain something -- verb). The actions I've enumerated are not cheats (noun). Bottom-line: let's keep the original meaning of the words in place, shall we?

The first game I've used cheats on (as in press some keys or combination of keys to type in a cheat) was Enemy Infestation ([Link]).

The first game I used cheats on was Max Payne 1 and 2. I think I played Max Payne 2 first and then Max Payne 1. Wasn't aware that this is cheating but it was fun to roam around with free cam and change Max Payne into any playable character. The game that was most interesting, beautiful, fun and challenging even with cheats on was Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim.

Cheatcodes on the internet? You were so lucky! When we were young we had to buy paper magazines to get our cheatcodes!

Honestly I cannot even recall what would be the first game. Maybe SimCity raining down disasters on the city you just build?

Does rewriting the BASIC programs on a Commodore 64 count?
