After I started getting into PC gaming, my Wii fell to the wayside with it's continual lack of games I personally want to play. I know there's a lot of good games on the wii but I would hardly call any of them great.
So, I ended up "hacking" my wii to play games off a hard drive for faster load times, and also to cheat/grief in Mario Kart Wii. Normally I am a "for the win" cheater either using star or infinite lighting.
Though at other times I solely target someone with the highest ranking and keep hitting them over and over via star power. Keeping them in place for the most part until they have no choice to come in last place or simply disconnect.
I'm in no way saying or even thinking this makes be a better player. In fact I'm a horrible player for it. I only do it for my own amusement and thanks to mario kart's online system, it's completely random as to who get's targeted.
I also admit hacking ruins games and yes this is the overall goal of hacking at least for me. Nintendo has paid attention to it and tried to ban players, but there's cheat's to get unbanned anyhow.
people hacking the wii so easily and it's online games have hopefully convinced Nintendo to go all in with digital gaming, such as letting games be patched not just the system itself.
So, has anyone else greifed in gaming before?
