Most of the video games today don’t have a feature where you can use cheat codes, but back in the good old days, some of those codes were an absolute necessity to finish games. Some old games added cheat codes just to reveal a few easter eggs. What were those cool features? Here are some gamer favorite cheat codes that you can try on the best gaming laptops from Sager Notebook:
