Hello everyone,
I am just interested in knowing if there is just a way to view the code of an application or game. If not, is it just for privacy?...(I figure this may sound stupid but I just want to make sure.)

~Thanks

If it is a compiled executable, no.
You can obviously view the code of open source games, but I take it you mean commercial games.
Technically you can decompile code, but it's highly illegal.

You can dissassemble the code and see the assembly code there. There is almost no way turning the assembly code back into the C++ or another language.
