Whether they’re game-breaking hacks or special Easter eggs, without a doubt the best kind of video game cheats are those that will make you laugh. We’ve listed 5 funniest video game cheats that we’ll never forget.
Flying Cars – Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
“square, down, L2, up, L1, circle, up, x, left”
There are so many cheat codes in the Grand Theft Auto series. Some of them are funny too, like the super punch and spawning random army tanks from the sky. But I’m sure I’m speaking for everyone here — our fondest memory of the series was flying a police car majestically through the air. Right?
Cars explode with one touch – The Simpsons: Hit and Run
“L1, R1, Triangle, Triangle, Square, Square”
If you’re on the younger side of gamers back in the 90’s then you’ve probably played Simpsons: Hit and Run also known as “GTA for kids who weren’t old enough to play GTA.” The game is brilliantly made, there are so many funny aspects on this game that’ll definitely give some nostalgic memories. And who could forget the cheat code where other cars explode with one touch? You just sit back and watch with joy as each cop car instantly explodes as it tries to arrest you. Literally, f*ck the police.
Play as a Dog – Rise of the Triad
Some of you may think of this as a power up rather than a cheat, but we’ll include this on the list anyway. With so many games including a special “God mode”, Rise of the Triad flipped that notion on its head and gave us a better “Dog mode.” This mode lets us run around with a fluffy little nose at the bottom of the screen and a furry paw which lashed out at enemies. Maybe if you listen closely you’ll hear enemies saying “It’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die.”
Moon Gravity – Tony Hawk’s Underground
You’re not a gamer back then when you haven’t played Tony Hawk’s Skater series. Who could forget that game? It has a lot of funny touches and Easter eggs that are literally scattered in the streets? Of all the game’s unlock-able cheat modes, the moon gravity takes the cake. Everyone will love the ability to spring exaggeratedly from the ground and do all the tricks in the list before landing again.
DK Mode – GoldenEye
Of course, no cheat article would be complete without the iconic DK Mode in GoldenEye. There have been many variants on the “big head mode” throughout the history of gaming, but to everyone, this was certainly one of the first and the most iconic.
