PC gaming has been on the comeback trail recently, but that doesn’t mean cheaters have gone away. In fact, cheating is in no way limited to the PC, having found a special place in the hearts of many console FPS gamers. And by special place, I mean one that has syphilis… or maybe crabs. One can only hope.
Cheaters and exploiters certainly aren’t in the majority, but they’re present enough that almost anyone who has ever played an FPS has dealt with one. This video by Freddie Wong highlights a number of the cheats we see while gaming and the disastrous effects they have on games. We’re reminded by him that it’s people who start hacking and griefing, and it’s people who can stop it.
There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.
(Also, if you feel like this message might seem like something you’ve seen before, it’s possible you have. This iconic video was made in 1971 and was a very successful part of the Keep America Beautiful ad campaign. When the actor who played the Crying Indian died in 1998 the public service announcements and ads were brought back for a short time. The video was the direct inspiration for Freddie’s technology oriented version.)
