Out of all of the video games, there are those with insanely addicting cheat codes. While gaming.net would not have the time to cover every cheat code that gives us gamers an inseparable feeling of joy, (we did our research), providing you with a list of the top 5 cheat codes. If you have your favorite video game cheats that you are fond of, be sure to share the love on Twitter.
5. NBA Live 98–Aqua Court:
The 90s vibes are returning when we look at “NBA Live 98.” Sure, the game had grainy graphics, but it had an electrifying video intro, a motion capture technology for lifelike movements on the basketball court, etc..
There’s a code in “NBA Live 98” called the Aqua Court” where you can access by entering the code “Seaweed,” without the quotation marks, allowing the next game to take place underwater. After you play under water where the basketball will move slower than usual, you will wonder may wonder why the “Aqua Court” was not added to more basketball video games? “NBA Live 98” was released in 1997 for the PC, Playstation, and Sega Saturn (all at separate times).
4. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas—Unlock All Weapons:
Be equipped with ammunition when you unlock all of the weapons in “Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. To unlock all of the weapons, you will need to use 3 cheat codes. The “Weapon Set 1” unlocks pistols, shotguns, small machine guns, and a rocket launcher. The “Weapon Set 2” unlocks knives, sniper rifles, and flamethrowers. From the “Weapon Set 3,” you will unlock weapons like a chainsaw, fully automatic weapons, a heat-seeking rocket launcher, and remote explosives.
3. NBA Jam—Dunk From Anywhere:
While in the “NBA Jam,” you can play as polarizing characters like Bill Clinton and Al Gore, there is also the cheat code that allows you to slam dunk from anywhere, called the “Powered-Up Dunks.” Move extra swift in this game. Like superhuman abilities discovered, slam dunk from the full court and half court. This gameplay is a real life childhood dream come true for aspiring basketball players.
2. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot—Infinite Health:
Based on the Dragon Ball Z franchise, there is “Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot,” where you can obtain “Infinite Health.” That’s right. You do not have to pause the video game. Just perform your daily activities and get back to eliminating the entire faction. You can choose from characters like Goku, Gohan (as a child, teen, or adult), Vegeta, Piccolo, Future Trunks, and Vegito.
1. Gradius—Konami Code:
Hardcore gamers know the classic Konami Code (known in Japanese as the Konami Command): Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A. The Konami Code, (which gives you a full set of power-ups) first appeared on the “Nintendo Entertainment System” with the 1986 video game, “Gradius.” During the process of making the video game, the developers thought the cheat code was too difficult to play. It is argued that the “Gradius” forgot to get rid of the cheat code or just kept the cheat code in (due to not wanting to risk bugs in the video game).
2 years later, Konami released the 1-2 player video game, “Contra” with the Konami Code. If you use the same code in “Contra” on the title screen, you begin the game with 30 lives. The Konami Code has been in games like “Castlevania,” “Dance Dance Revolution,” “BioShock,” “Batman Returns,” etc.
Bonus: Grand Theft Auto 3
In the 2001 action/ adventure video game, “Grand Theft Auto 3,” you (as Claude) can fly a “Rhino Tank.” Drive with enough speed on a bridge while you have your cannon turned backwards, constantly shooting. Eventually, the “Rhino Tank” will amazingly fly in the air. This is the type of cheat code that can make us feel invincible. If you turn too fast while flying the “Rhino Tank,” be prepared for a harsh landing.
