I've often wondered how many would have succeeded without me?
Do you, guys, easily succumb to the temptation?
Do you summon me straight away, instead of being true to the spirit of the real fighters?
Question is - should I have been revealed to the world in the first place?
Doesn't it spoil the pleasure of achieving the goal without me?

Who or what am I?

Further to some comment, I've changed one of the lines cause I think it causes a big of ambiguity.

And, also, the answer IS in the question.

Without me a lot of fighters would have been 'doomed'.

I think it is

God mode

Because

Each of the first letter spells 'IDDQD' which is god mode for the game Doom.

I found it thanks to the tag and the hint 'doomed'.

Are you

A hint

Do you, guys, easily succumb to the temptation? Do you summon me straight away, instead of being true to the spirit of the real fighters?

When someone finds a riddle too complicated, he is likely to ask for a hint quickly.

Question is - should I have revealed myself to the world in the first place?

If OP post a hint in his post, the riddle might be too easy.

Doesn't it spoil the pleasure of achieving the goal without me?

Solving a riddle without any hint is a bit more pleasuring than with hints.

Comments
I think he wants a specific videogame with secret that with it, the game is easier. He also say "the answer is in the question " so Real Fighters game?

Regarding the comment in the IAmInPLS anser, i think the answer can be:

Cheat codes in games

Do you, guys, easily succumb to the temptation? Do you summon me straight away, instead of being true to the spirit of the real fighters?

When someone struggles in a game, can activate cheat codes or commands to make it easy

Doesn't it spoil the pleasure of achieving the goal without me?

Completing a game is more pleasant without tricks

  • $\begingroup$ Again, you are in the right direction but you have to be more specific than that. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ you are very, very close, just be a bit more specific. Look at the question. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I thought this was the answer. I thought 'remember me' was about less games having them now $\endgroup$ Aug 8, 2016 at 15:58

I think it is

Trainer

Do you, guys, easily succumb to the temptation?

Do you summon me straight away, instead of being true to the spirit of the real fighters?

no body tries any game with trainer at first

Question is - should I have revealed myself to the world in the first place?

No game reveals trainer for itself.

Doesn't it spoil the pleasure of achieving the goal without me?

Its no fun playing game with trainer.

Regards.
