    LOL any good crack has these waste of time anti hacks beat. But for real some ppl use the pirate copies to see if they like a game if they do like it they buy it as these day most games need online access to give the full experience of the game but a hacked copy can give you a demo like experience to test if its worth the money.

    I find it funny that pirates try to defend themselves like their not doing any harm. The only reason I can think of for downloading a game is to see if its good or not. I would do that for any game by EA, Ubisoft, and activision. if there good I buy, if not fuck 'em.

    Imagine if in Overwatch, if you got a pirated game, you could still play it, but it disables your primary and secondary fire. Also, HOLY SHIT SPYRO IS SO EVIL WITH THAT ANTI-PIRACY THING! I have that game, and now I am happy that it wasn't a bootleg or something.

    This just makes no sense. I mean, if they can tell when the game has been pirated, why not just block it to prevent people from playing it?

    I'm missing Earthbound on the list. A pirated version of this game will spawn hoards and hoards of enemies, and will crash as you approach the final boss.
    But my favourite anti-pirate measure is still Gamedev Tycoon. That is total genius and made for some of the best whining on the internet.

    No mention of Lucasfilm Games early titles?
    Zak McKracken came with a list of codes you needed for flights out of the US. If you entered wrong codes too often you were thrown in jail and got a fairly hilarious speech from the guard about piracy.
    Indy and the Last Crusade came with a version of Henry's Diary you needed to choose the right grail in the end, making it pretty much impossible to successfully complete the game without it.

    As a dude who makes pirating available for others, I will tell you one thing, no matter what devs put in their games, we can fix it and make the game playable like it's an original copy. Maybe first releases are bugged, but it's all fixed in time.

Now I have a feeling that you think I am the bad guy in this world, let's say that what I am doing brings a bit of happiness to those who weren't so fortunate to be born in a wealthy surroundings, is this the answer you are looking for?

    Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate. I will pirate until the end of torrents and crackers, until it becomes illegal in my region or until I die. If I really like something, and I can afford it sooner or later, I am buying it. Until then, me and my fellow pirates pay the price in poverty. Yes. Poverty or low GDP/capita. The poverty in our countries, so your countries can prosper. Some of us(I hope most) don't do this because we want to, but because we have less choices. For one to prosper the other one has to diminish. That's how life is and no one can change it. So stop generalizing.

  • Kris Curtis

    You know what would be a great way of stopping piracy! What they could do is finish developing games before release and not charge more money for DLCs to complete the game you already paid for. Another good move might be to stop over hyping games and misrepresenting them at events like E3 ... but yeah silly features in the games works as well! ... I find it hard, as a gamer, to sympathize with developers when I have been stung so many times when I hand over my hard earned cash for something that quite frankly was mis-sold!

    Americans have no reason to pirate games, they get their games for really cheap. Every single fucking release is $100+ in Australia.

    The only other reason to pirate something is if the content was never properly released by the dev, or the content was banned in your country (The Guy Game, The Interview, Manhunt etc.)

  • Chroma

    The reason it's not stealing is becuase all of your games that you paid for is not yours.
    If you would actually read the terms you would know,piracy is the only way to really own a game.

    If I was a game developer, the game would start up. Select your character. Loading...
    And a picture of a middle finger with the text 'Ye won't play now, motherfuckin pirate.'

    After you exit the game your whole PC/console would crash causing permament damage and causing a fire burning your house down and suddenly you're homeless. Or dead.

    Now think twice before pirating my shit.

    My idea for an anti-piracy measure: when you click "Play", the menu screen glitches up and the game transforms into a childish, crudely made edutainment minigame, which simulates an ethics class about not stealing. Who would like to go into buisness with me?

  • Bewaretheopinions !!!

    Piracy is justified unless a demo of the game exists IMO, the very majority of people who pirate games do it to test the game in the absence of a demo. People who play pirated games legitimately can die, tho.
