The ends does not justify the means. There are plenty of other (legal) ways to find out whether or not you would like a game before you buy it. Magazines, review sites, demos, videos, etc. You can try to justify it all you like, but in the end you are doing something against the law, and harming not only you (when you do buy software you like it will be more expensive) but everyone else that buys every piece of software legally.

Reviews are opinions, and i might have a different opinion. Demos, lot of games now don't have mp and sp demos. I can't judge a video game based on pictures and videos. I don't see how "testing" out the game is hurting anyone

Yeah, but not everyone pirates a game just to "test" it before they buy it. They do it because they don't want to buy the game. Since there is no way to differentiate between the two purposes, it becomes illegal in any form. And it can hurt developers in many ways, as the source said. You can't say it doesn't when you have no idea. Sorry for sounding like an ass but it's true. And remember, you can always sell a game if you don't like it that much..

lol... I only pirate PC games so the Devs get intimidated from PC gaming market and migrate to consoles. Now I can enjoy all the great titles on 360 and PS3.

AND STOP USING ANALOGIES
It's those kinds of empty arguments that serve to prove in and of themselves that those who pirate have absolutely no justification for their motives except within their own convoluted minds.

Did you not even read the article? Often the crappy product issue is caused by the fact that you pirated the game!

And if your morals were low enough to pirate in the first place then pardon me if I don't believe your spiel about only pirating games because they don't have a demo. You can always read a review, or hear about the game through word of mouth because there is always someone who will have played it and talked about it. You'll just have to make sure those you talk to didn't lack a moral standard like you and pirate the game as well.

CS was a *bedroom-development* if memory serves me well.

Well, to all pirates I would say this:-
A great number of you, I would think, play CSS. The only reason you can do so is because of people SUPPORTING the devs.

See where I am coming from? hmm?

We'll i'm not going to be like the few(if not more) shady characters and BS liers out there saying I NEVER DID THAT, or THATS SO WRONG.. to blend in.. I pirated games before and not only games... and I have done it a long time.. Recently, I've gotten a good job, a good gaming rig and I have had no need to pirate anything recently... Except one... When I finished Doppleganger.. I wanted to REALLY Push the graphics in a game.. On my 6800 the last game I was able to play on good res was battlefield 1942... So i looked up the most recent one and .. Did Pirate Battlefield 2142 and ya know what? It looks beautiful... I un-installed it cuz i was satisfied with AI Multiplayer and such... but No online play mind you but hey.. it was pirated... I prob have quite a debt to pay to a lot of companies, Applications and Game creators... But I have turned around... mostly... I bought the most expensive editions of all the battlefields series just to feel better and i still haven't re-installed 2142 because I'm satisfied with Bf2 right now... Haven't downloaded a game sense and I have paid for nearly ever recent release of FPS's, Flight Sims, RTS and Rpgs... Except COD4 cuz I had that for my 360... I can't say I wont ever pirate again... But I'm not going to be doing it anytime soon... My shame is my avatar...

Edit: Oh and No, I have no excuse.. I wanted the game, Kazaa didn't have a real copy.. Found Torrents and there it was... I was young, still living with my parents, Underpaid job and a fast connection... I did lack the moral and for a while I justified it by saying "The Programmers and developers still get paid for the games they make despite piracy", Like I knew... (Note: I also NEVER bashed a game or gave a community my feedback.. So besdies my copy, I caused no harm... Actually, sometimes got my friends to buy it and share a cd-key with me like on Tribes 2)
