* In ''VideoGame/TheStanleyParable'', attempting to activate cheats in the console sends you away into a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teNsICR8JGY Serious Room]] where the Narrator gives you a lecture on cheating and locks you away [[LongerThanLifeSentence for one hundred billion trillion years]]. Do it again, and he increases your sentence to [[UpToEleven infinity years]]. However, restarting the game reverts this effect.

* Downplayed in the text survival-porn RPG ''Flexible Survival''. Using any of the game's various cheats lowers your score (and can send it into negative numbers), but the only thing having a high score gives you is a cheat code that grants you 200XP instantly at the start of the game (which will boost you to just a few points shy of 6th level). And given how easy it is to earn points in the game, it's not even really a significant penalty.

** Using the Warp Barrel in River Side Race automatically pushes your time to 10 Minutes, if you want to beat Brash Bear's time you'll have to do it the legit way.

** The mildest form of this trope is that having cheats ''enabled'' but not yet used in the console, or even in developer commentary mode, prevents you from getting achievements.

* Creator/{{Valve|Software}} Anti-Cheat. When logging into a VAC-secured server, {{Steam}} verifies that critical game files have not been modified in some way (i.e., to allow players to do things they're not supposed to). If such modifications are detected, their ''entire Steam account'' will be banned from ever logging into VAC-secured servers again. If they want to be able to play the game again, they'll have to create a new account, and have the choice between repeatedly switching accounts to play different games or buying ''all'' of their games over again. (VAC is also enabled on many non-Valve games, such as the ''Franchise/CallOfDuty'' games[[note]]the FAQ specifically mentions the ''Modern Warfare'' games, though later games such as ''Ghosts'' also have VAC enabled[[/note]] and ''VideoGame/DungeonDefenders'', full list [[http://store.steampowered.com/search/?category2=8 here]].)

Examples Are Not Recent, yikes, this one was almost six years old!
** Creator/BlizzardEntertainment is now [[http://kotaku.com/5661492/is-blizzard-banning-starcraft-ii-players-for-cheating-in-singleplayer banning]] ''Starcraft II'' players for using hacking devices to cheat in the single-player campaign. Their explanation is that since the game is always online, using cheats to gain achievements in the single-player campaign would unfairly affect someone's online prestige. And, since the game is always online, [[DisproportionateRetribution banning a player's account prevents them from playing the single-player portion of the game as well]].

* The original ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'' has six clue leading to the [[FryingPanofDoom Frying Pan]]. This is a weak weapon, but can receive up to five augmentations, making it potentially one of the strongest weapon in the game. If you dig it up without finding all six clues, it deals zero damage and has no augmentation slots.

* The original ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'' has six clue leading to In ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'', you get chastised by the [[FryingPanofDoom Frying Pan]]. This is a weak weapon, but can receive up to five augmentations, making it potentially one of game's creator for cheating and not playing his game the strongest weapon way he intended. Given that the creator is ''Satan'', however, and that it's literally impossible to progress in the game. If game ''without'' cheating, you dig it up without finding all six clues, it deals zero damage and has no augmentation slots.won't be inclined to feel guilty.

* In VideoGame/TheWikiGame: When someone else completes the WikiWalk, you are notified on the side and there's a link so you can see which pages they used. If you click that before you yourself have completed the WikiWalk, you are told you aren't allowed to see until you're done. This can be annoying when you've given up and still have to wait 40 seconds for the game to end.
