...but one that I'm sure the hardcore gamers on here can answer. I've wondered for years how people learned the "cheat codes" for games (and also, the "special moves" in fighting games.... i.e. the fatalities in Mortal Kombat). I'm particularly curious how this worked before the internet.
Did people really push enough coins into the machines trying out different combinations of movement until they chanced on something that worked, or have "moves" and "codes" been secrets released discreetly (or indiscreetly) by developers since the dawn of time?
Anyway... just curious. And it occurred to me today that I could probably get an answer here.
