I remember the magical feeling of renting the Nintendo Game Genie as a child. Playing games like Super Mario Brothers was difficult and I felt like I was missing something and not getting the full experience. Game Genie would unlock new experiences.

And it did… kind of. Not to the extent that I imagined, but I recall being able to enjoy playing games not worried about having to start over from the beginning for poor hand eye coordination.
