If Metafilter was Wikipedia, we'd already have editors screaming "game cruft!" and down-voting.

The cheat "cheese steak jimmy's" complete with the apostrophe haunts my mind years after I stopped playing Age of Empires 2 simply because of the absurdity of it.

Now that Twitter is back up and I had a look - nice post. These are simple and have little context by themselves, but still have some sort of Zen quality for me - probably because I can remember getting the Game Genie for NES being a life changing experience when I was about 13. I can almost picture some pages of that silly code book. Many I didn't have to look up to use.

I had a macro keyboard set up to enter to do cheese steak jimmy's (plus the other codes) repeatedly when I hit particular keys, because my friends and I would have LAN party games where everyone would run a macro at the beginning and get huge stockpiles of resources, then spend 6-8 hours building huge sprawling bases with walls of castles five rows deep and crosshatched with bombard towers, everyone researching every tech until finally we would all agree that the safeties were off and it was time to start fighting.

Also, it would occasionally misfire in AIM windows and hit me with the repetition filter. Uninitiated friends seeing me say "lumberjack" 20 times and then disconnect were often very confused.
