I'm the same as a lot of people here. When I first discovered the Action Replay, I thought it was the coolest things ever. It was frustrating not being able to get a lot of things in my games, but with the AR I could do anything! It was amazing not having to worry about running out of TMs or HP or anything.
But yeah, after I had abused it quite a bit (in pokemon and in other games), I grew bored of it. I began to play my games again and had a newfound love for them again and realizing how fun they were. So that's one good thing about the AR I guess? ^^
