How Do You Define 'Cheating' In A Video Game?

Something tells me this person doesn't know what cheating in a video game actually is. I was expecting to hear about wall hacks, aimbots and lag switching but ended up reading about someone changing difficulty levels midway through a single player game. Hell, even when you use cheat codes, god mode, etc. etc. in a single player game, the only person you are "cheating" is yourself.

We don’t always play games the way we’re supposed to. We’ve all pulled out that little trick that helps us get through a tough area, beat a boss, or get a higher score. It might not be turning on God Mode in the developer console or using an aimbot, but it’s not quite on the level either. But it’s fine. It’s not cheating. Right?
