Hey, you sound like it's breaking the law or something
But, ever thought, that so do the developers, making some games ULTRA HARDCORE VERY MUCHOS HARD?

Later I'd come back and restart from that point, however I'd only use it once so it's like I never left at all
Exactly. That's why I think consider it non-cheating.

Don't forget betatesting purposes for the developers themselfs...
