From comically oversized heads to the foulest of sidekicks, here are seven (more) hilarious video game cheats that you must go away and try immediately.
Grand Theft Auto 3 - Tank Mode
The GTA series is full of hilarious cheats, from flying cars (covered in our last list) to hidden jet packs, but as far as all out fun goes, there really is no better code than the Tank drop. This cheat, once activated, will drop a 70 tonne tank onto the asphalt for you to control.
This monster machine comes complete with a working turret meaning you can not only crush other road users like ants under your steal tracks but also blow the living snot out of the city. I spent many an hour sat within the belly of those steel beasts just laughing at the cops' futile efforts to try and stop me.
To get your own tank you must type in the following code - Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, R1, L2, L1, Triangle, Circle, Triangle (PS)
NBA Jam - Big Heads
NBA Jam is another game famed for its collection of incredible cheat codes. As we covered the GoldenEye 007 DK mode last time and everyone loves a good big head cheat code, my thoughts immediately turned to NBA Jam. What Cheat code list would be complete without a load of top heavy video game characters running riot around the place?
This big head cheat is pretty self explanatory. Once activated, all your players come complete with huge heads, making the gameplay extremely funny to play and incredibly entertaining to watch.
To activate this cheat you must, before the tipoff, at the 'Tonight's Matchup' screen, hold the 'Turbo Up' button, and the 'Steal' button until the tipoff.
Age of Empires - Big Daddy
Genuinely one of the funniest cheat codes ever, papa's got a brand new bag with this BIGDADDY cheat code.
By entering the above code you can summon a big ass convertible (Winsett's Z - Chevrolet Camaro Z28) complete with a guy holding a rocket launcher sat behind the wheel. This is by far the fastest unit in the game and can level a house with one shot.
Resident Evil - Tofu
Epic for being so bizarre, this secret allowed you to transform the protagonist into a elongated rectangle of Tofu. That’s right, complete with arms and opposable thumbs this was just as ridiculous as it was entertaining.
Who knew zombies were also vegan? Spread the word - zombies can be fed tofu instead of human flesh.
Assassin's Creed III - Turkey Assassin
This is more of an Easter Egg than a cheat per se but it is super fun and that is exactly what this list is all about. In Assassin’s Creed 3 you are able to find an innocent looking turkey that hides a deadly secret.
If you head over to Davenport homestead and run around to the back of the building, hide around one of it’s corners and whistle, you will find that a turkey will appear from out of the woods. This is where it gets really cool, if you then face the turkey and enter the Konami code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start) the turkey will reveal itself to be a fellow assassin and stick by your side.
Mind blown - clucking brilliant!
Earthworm Jim - Donkey Kong Head
Everyone's favorite soil-dweller Earthworm Jim was another game full of fun cheat codes. Today, I would like to highlight the incredible amalgamation of Donkey Kong into Earthworm Jim’s universe.
By typing in the code (from start menu), down plus C, B, A, A, A, A, B, and C you were able to play the game as Jim but Jim had Donkey Kongs' head - this is, in effect, the ultimate DK mode.
Metal Gear Solid 3 - The Problems That Come With Old Age
Not many games can boast boss fights that last as long as Metal Gear Solid series. Metal Gear Solid 3 in particular had a mammoth boss fight that would easily drain your life of multiple hours. There is a shortcut, however, that you can exploit which is both funny in its conception and useful in its time saving efficiency.
Save the game as you enter into the boss fight then immediately quit. Go into your console's date settings and jump the years forward a few, then return to your saved game. You will find that the boss has died of old age and you no longer need to fight him to complete the game.
