Be honest. Do you sometimes pirate your game? What are your reasons.
oh yes.i do indeed. all it takes to look around in youtube, there is usually a key to be found. no need even to go to a warez site and download a keygen and rootkit.and i cant be bothered with getting a creditcard, just for games. usually they are not worth the time and trouble. and they get uninstalled democratically. q.e.d.
yes i do and i mainly get games from fitgirl repack. the reason for this is the game i like is too expensive for me and i cant get digital downloads for most games.
Do I? Yes
Reason? Because they're free
I do to see if I like them, if I like them I buy them , I have all the older games like halflife, halflife 2, bioshock, bioshock 2, rage, real looking slot machines you play in a casino, bejeweled, yes I know there all old games but I have fun playing them . I have thrown out more games I don't enjoy so I don't buy them ! I try before I buy.
Not anymore . Used to pirate PSX, PS2 and Xbox games. Stopped at 360 and PS3. If I remember rightly at the very beginning there wasn't any protection in PSX games.
Can remember CDRWin and CloneCD were the tools to use.
I don't play games now but when I did, yes I pirated some. Its because I'm poor and can't afford most of good games.
I don't play games...
(Not counting Forum Games at https://forums.mydigitallife.net/forums/forum-games.41/ , of course.)
Honestly, isn't this thread very very useless?
I mean if you learn 75%, so to speak, actually pirate or not their games, are you going to pirate yours or not too?
oh no, mr.x, it is always nice to learn how other people handle that, i suppose it has to do with ethics, so we are ethical pirates really, and the likes of sony, sega, and m$ are the indignant victims.i happen to feel they make more than enough money as it is.they attack sites like the pirate bay, with the flimsy excuse that could have made even more money, if we were all good boys, and paying through the nose for legal software. i feel no sympathy for them whatsoever. it is a good thing that mdl keeps its nose clean regarding illegal software, or the powers that be would double their efforts to suppress what little freedom that we have on the www. freedom is useless if you do not exercise it, so lets by all means use it, i say.
To answer the OP's specific question, I don't pirate games because I don't play them.
As a retired software developer, I have mixed feelings about piracy. But I don't criticize others for what they do.
Maybe it's not true for games, but there are many free and open source apps that make pirating their commercial counterparts unnecessary.
These days, I write free, open source apps. With "Open Source" being important, so that others can learn to create their own apps and possibly games.
Give a man a fish, and all that jazz.
I use Fitgirl or Mr. Dj repacks most of the times. If there's any sweet deal which is priced very low I'll buy them.
I don't get time to play games
I "pirate" them because it is the only way to get certain games DRM free!
cos im a cheap marsupial
Haven't played a game since 2008.
I pirate games but with good intentions. I pirated ffix on the psp and fell in love with the game. Bought it on the PSN store later on and finished it. I bought L4D2 on steam but could not play offline so I installed a crack and played on non steam servers. I don't condone piracy but I hated how pirates had greater flexibility with games. I downloaded roms of games that I own on NES cartridges but I don't feel bad about it. I am not buying the game again to play on my wii
Yes, everybody do it and it is free.
Not anymore. I mostly play just multiplayer games so...
I like developers who create games and software that you can use free to a certain point so that you can get to see if you can use it or its fun to play, if I think it works for me I will buy it, I have bought software and games that I gave away because after using it I found it was crap the adds for it was better then the software. today there is a bunch of useless software out there that wont let you return an opened package ! so yes I pirate software but I like to call it "software forced to be try and buy"
