Personally I don't think its cheating but all my friends say it is and I don't know what to think about it. I mean some areas are so hard its almost like there straight up forcing you to buy them.

I don't really think so, its not like the game forces you to get amiibos, giving you the alternate option to get hints via coins

I made free and frequent use of my trusty Peach amiibo and if it's just to stop that annoying beeping when down to 1 health. Just do what you feel like is right.

You can't cheat at having fun, unless you're playing a multiplayer game in which case there should be no bonus advantages for any player.

Personally, I'm not using the amiibo, but I only made that choice because it seems to be the way I'll have the most fun. I'm sure this will change when I get down to the last few moons.

It's just like using guides. If you think it's fun use it. Personally I never use guides because I feel like I am cheating and it's not fun for me but I have been using amiibo because I bought the Odyssey amiibo and wanted to do something with them. And the game being hard isn't forcing you to use amiibo, I've actually seen complaints the game is too easy (meaning the story) but they add those parts so it is harder if you want. If you are struggling and want to use amiibo, do it.

Ask your friends if they look up anything on the internet. If they do, they are worse cheaters!

@Dapper-D
Using Amiibo is NOT Cheating at all.
It just an OPTIONAL features to enhance the gameplay.
Explain to your friends about that.

well for most games yes but in odyssey it feels like it mario's amibo gives you invincibility for what seems a little long and peach give you a lot of extra life and bowser could be worse but still remember you can scan these all you want

@Dapper-D I'm going to say that using Amiibo is not cheating but it may always feel like cheating. You should play the game the way you want to, whichever allows you the most fun.

Personally though I didn't use my Amiibo except for costumes and ~5 hints.

In terms of Mario Odyssey, I used the amiibo to get hints for moon locations but other than that I didn't really use them. I don't see it as cheating, but I basically see it as turning on assist mode. It makes the game easier but personally I still like having some challenge when I play games.

That's what people say about loot boxes in Battlefront II as well.

I think you mean that's what EA says about them

I think there are a few key differences between Amiibo and Loot Boxes. The first major one being that Amiibo are also a figurine which you pay for once and then use over and over again. Even when the rewards from Amiibo are randomised (i.e. BotW) there's no extra cost to rolling the dice again. In Odyssey specifically other than costumes the reward you get is just a pointer to where a moon is. Something which you can do by giving coins to the Toad and something which happens automatically towards the end of the game.

And it's not like the game hides where moons may be. There's always some sort of hint when you get to a location like a door, pipe, sparkling bit of rock or a secondary pathway. So they're not really taking much gameplay out of the game by pointing them out. Compared to a loot box or other micro-transaction where in order to make it worth money they're using content that could have been a reward for some challenge.

Using a feature built into the game is not cheating. Abusing a glitch or modding the game would be cheating. Sounds like your friends are just salty because they cannot find or afford a certain Amiibo or 8.
