Nice post Tom. You make an excellent point here about game hacks: game hacks seldom provide an absolute solution to a win condition, rather typically provide incremental improvements. For instance, no-one would make a game hack of Dragon Crawl that would give the Orb and take you to the exit. By doing this you would eliminate the entire point of the game, which is, in Suits words, to accomplish this goal through the least efficient means. Within that hacks might make some aspects more efficient, but they are rarely use to achieve the desired game state in one fell swoop.
