Comment Only Semi-useful to Gamers w/o other options. (Score 1) 152

I honestly believe that this patent will be thrown out. If, for some odd reason, it gets passed, then it will merely be laughed at and/or abused. My brother is a prime example of someone who would BARELY use this type of "cheating"; he loves the challenge of finishing a game and doing it on his own. He says, and I quote, "The only reason I would use this feature is to [bypass using] YouTube videos so that I didn't have to use the Internet to help me solve my problems." He goes on to say "I wouldn't save the game if I used [this feature], because I would want to do it myself." That shows a TRUE gamer; not some person who would simply use it for cheating and bypassing the requirements.
