Late in the game, you are able to buy a video game console that allows you to play video games at home. Even later, you're able to buy a book titled "Game Secrets", which makes all of the video games easier to beat.
However, the game gives you a choice to use the cheats that you learn from the book. If you do, Morgana comments on how it's understandable that you're frustrated. Furthermore, after beating a level using cheats, Morgana also says how it wasn't as exciting since you used cheats.
Is this just flavor text or am I actually being penalized in some way for using cheats?
