Lochnivar October 13 2009 3:32 PM EDT

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] October 13 2009 3:32 PM EDT

Ahah, awesome.

It's amazing: I haven't entered that code for years, but it was imprinted on my brain....

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- October 13 2009 3:39 PM EDT

Wow, I'm impressed, when I started pressing the code, I couldn't help think, "Wow this isn't going to work, I'm going to look super nerdy and stupid for knowing this, the websites going to laugh at me..."

Then by the end of the code, I felt like a god.

Win.

One has to love Wikipedia.

BluBBen October 13 2009 3:44 PM EDT

JW, you are not the only one that got that feeling :-)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- October 13 2009 3:44 PM EDT

Really Ranger??... Really?

QBRanger October 13 2009 3:45 PM EDT

Yes Jir, really.

Do you need me to type it again?

Admiralkiller October 13 2009 3:45 PM EDT

I thought it was longer.. ADMIN EDIT: ruining the surprise I got in before I entered it all though.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- October 13 2009 3:46 PM EDT

Yes. I want to SS it.

Type clearly, I Ranger, fail.

J/k...

But ... really? I've known that code since I was like 4 :O

QBRanger October 13 2009 3:48 PM EDT

I never used a cheat code while playing my video games.

Never got satisfaction from cheating. I guess I may have been the only one.

QBJohnnywas October 13 2009 3:51 PM EDT

The first time I used the code was on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for the first Nintendo console. I probably got most use out of it on Parodius though on the SNES.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] October 13 2009 3:51 PM EDT

Reminds me of Street Fighter 2 that came out back when I was 4.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- October 13 2009 3:53 PM EDT

It's not that its something everyone used OFTEN, just simply because it was always there.

Not to mention really really easy to memorize.

*shrug*

If you haven't cheated playing Gradius or Contra, you've never beaten said games. (Yes, I'm aware that there are HARD and EASY versions of said games, just assume I'm talking about the HARD ones.) :P

QBJohnnywas October 13 2009 3:54 PM EDT

Oh come on Ranger - using the cheat codes on games is pretty much the same as using USD in this game. Gets you some places faster...

QBRanger October 13 2009 3:55 PM EDT

Never did use a cheat code.

At least until I got to Doom, on the computer.

But never on a console game.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- October 13 2009 4:00 PM EDT

:P You're missing out then, a lot of "cheats" are nothing more than things put in the game to make it more entertaining in some way... (Golden Eye anyone)

And some games are not meant to be beaten, the "cheats" are there so that you can see passed level 5, while the creators high five each other on their own genius.

Go play Ikaruga. You'll understand the value of a "cheat code" within 10 minutes I assure you.

Doom, haha which one? I miss those games, I've beaten them all, same with the Hexens, and a few other similar off titles.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- October 13 2009 4:01 PM EDT

Man my spelling/grammar sucks. I blame sleep deprivation. Sorry.

IndependenZ October 13 2009 5:23 PM EDT

I never knew that was called the Konami Code but...

I think Dan Brown should write a book about it.

Oh and nice site too, btw.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 13 2009 6:27 PM EDT

Nuts! It wasn't up down up down left right left right a b a b.

Now i'm gonna have to go google it. ;)

Flamey October 13 2009 8:23 PM EDT

Or click the link to wikipedia that it gives you? Or were you kidding and I missed it?

Joel October 13 2009 8:34 PM EDT

A link to Adventure Quest Worlds is in the list, and I think thats awesome. I play Adventure Quest regularly still, and once I get to max level and beat all the Uber bosses, then, I'll switch to AQWorlds.

AdminShade October 14 2009 1:27 AM EDT

Gradius ftw!

kevlar October 14 2009 1:38 AM EDT
