As far as trusting them goes though, i don't bother with problems such as these, because i tend to not have any problem with my Key/Serial in the first place.
where would you find the installer data from a reliable place?

You also don't pay a dime when pirating so I really don't see how you came to your conclusion.

If devs/publishers see anything wrong with it then they could lock certain keys to regions which they normally don't.
Riiiiight... so they get paid the profits from a sale in India or Thailand. Care to tell me how much money they'll make off'f that? Cos they sell games out there (to beat piracy) at 10% of the price in the developed world, and that's before you take into account any fluctuations in currency.

A normal game sale is anywhere between 30UKP and 45UKP. That's the publisher getting paid and the developer (but mainly the publisher, cos they front the cash for the development and distribution). Cut that down to 5-10UKP and suddenly the developer is going from 25% of 30UKP to 25% of 10UKP. You think that's fair? Or somehow better than piracy?

Of course, that assumes they're not just intercepting during delivery games, opening them, nabbing the serial and then selling the physical copy as well as the key. Or, they've not got a decent keygen.

Region locking games is impossible on PC. I was going to be sarcastic, but I figured if someone doesn't know about VPNs and proxies then I'd better be polite - they're probably not that bright.

End of the day, CD key sites screw developers. You're happy to go with that? Cool. I prefer to ensure the developers and publishers keeping this platform alive are paid and paid well.
