This depends entirely on the game. I've "modded" a few different Microsoft games, and the majority were incredibly easy (despite modding not being supported)... at least, if I got started. There were a couple that I just couldn't even touch. Of course, this was back in an older era of gaming, 10-15 years ago.

I can't shake my head hard enough to show how unable to compute your "Bored activities" my Non-Programmer-Brain is :crazy:
We have a non-programmer among us? :O

And shaking your head about the bored activities of whom? ^^
Automation engineer, lateral thinker, soldier, addicted to music, books and gaming.
Nothing to see here

That wouldn't really work, and your original one would.

The difference is one of visible lightning - you can have thunder without seeing lightning (the lightning is just obscured by cloud); but rarely do you have lightning without hearing thunder.
Games I like, in order of how much I like them.

That was my reasoning when I wrote the code. But... I just... didn't point it out? :P
