Cheating by Video Game Participants
AbstractIn this paper, I explore the concept of cheating in the medium of the video game. Why do people do it? How does online cheating differ from offline? The existence of cheat codes seems to imply that cheating is rampant and even encouraged - orperhaps it’s just that the codes are poorly named. I also look at criminal activity in games, and at some ways to reduce cheating activities in online games.
