I honestly hate hard games with a burning passion... Sure, they'll last longer, but the frustration isn't worth it. I feel like a game which I can play through without dying as much or having any frustrations will appeal to me more.
Too many a game have I simply stopped playing because I don't require any more frustration in my life... I mean I have enough in my personal life, why in the world would I need more in a game? Therefore, knowing that if it gets to me I might just stop playing completely, I usually do use cheats to help out if it comes to that point.

i think the only game i really would cheat on was Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 after id finally unlocked everything fairly, it was fun to unlock the stuff with one code[didnt have a memory card back then] plus the moon physics cheat was always a hoot
I hardly ever cheat. Only cheat I've used in the last couple of years was the one that let you get all powerups iin The Force Unleashed in order to get the achievment for hardest difficulty, the game was simply cheating.
In general, no, but there's always exceptions like the one above. And most of the time it's just for fun (like the flying tanks example earlier), because to make a game purposefully easier is to cheapen it.
I also used the insta-money cheat in the original "The Sims." But I had grown bored with the game and there's not really a way to win in a traditional sense. So I just messed around designing houses, because that had more appeal to me.
One of my favorite things to do in Sims 2 is build these huge elaborate houses, and then seeing how long it takes the actual Sims to burn the place to the ground. Considering I've had them start fires making poptarts not five minutes after starting the game, it generally doesn't take long. It's a pity that the Sims in Sims 3 are more intelligent and not quite as suicidally accident-prone
or as incontinent.. my neice had these hilarious sims (due to her lack of caretaking) that just kept pissin themselves and fallin asleep every 3 steps.. god that was good stuff.. the wife even fell asleep in a puddle out in the middle of the street on the way to her car..rofl
