View Full Version : Removal of Arcade games where you can blatantly cheat

I dislike the fact that you can cheat in some of the arcade games. Here's the games that encourage cheating:

- Sudoku:
All this game measures is how fast you can type in the sudoku into a Sudoku solver online and then fill up the numbers.

- Simon:
The pattern never changes, the game only adds to it, so this is a test of for how long you bother to write down the combination and press through it. The current record is at 50 repetitions and about 28 minutes of playing.

- Spy Hunter:
This is a bit more ambiguous, but you can pause the game by pressing spacebar. Pressing space repeatedly to make doding bullets much easier is the only way to get scores as high as the top of the high score list.


These games in my opinion take away from the fun of the arcade and caters to 'win by all means necessary' players.


Also, I finished Mini Putt 3, but it didn't give me a chance to upload a high score. What's up with that?

Don't remove them. So people cheat, I can't play the games anymore? Sudoku is one of my favourate games.

Good point. :)

Could they be only removed from the High Score system, but remain playable?
