If you have money for a new computer, then you have money for games.

Pirating is making PC gaming worse for everyone, even the pathetic pirates.

No offense, but if you can't afford to buy a game can you really afford to waste time playing a pirated game?

If you can’t afford it when it first comes out… then wait till it goes on sale like some have stated. If you can’t afford it and don’t want to wait then find a better job. Also for the comment about the movie production costs; they shouldn’t be paying most of those dumbass actors millions of dollars that can’t act anyway, and the movie wouldn’t cost so damn much to produce…

If you're a pos... then just keep stealing and watch the years to come where PC games become a thing of the past. If you do download them and like the game... then buy it... don't play through the whole game and go "Wow that was a good game." then do nothing about it....
No, but that was what your "bank account analogy" basically was.

What about buying games second hand? - should that be illegal because you can play the game without the developers seeing your cash?
Haswell fun.

But you see; Someone else already bought that copy of the game. The developers already got money from it.

Sure nearly all pirated games were bought, but they are being sent to more then one person.

It's all about money

PS- title needs fixing rick
Replication is stealing?
Sharing is not stealing.
For instance I have a brother, and if i buy a game for me, does this mean that he cannot play the game because I bought it? Does that means I cannot give it to him to install it on his PC?
Off course not, it would be stupid if it is so.
There should be EULA. Nothing more or less.

The only thing that can make you feel it is steal is because developers won't get money if you have a copy. This is because they do not protect they property good. If you deliver code to me, what stops me to modify it? It is on my PC, not on yours. There are licenses that can prevent such things, but as a non-utopia, our world have backdoors.

Depends whether you consider the playing of the game or game ownership the thing that you are paying for...
Haswell fun.

Again no one said anything about hacking... I said give me your bank account numbers ... i'll put them in my active accts online and then transfer all your money out of your account into my account. Basiclly I was just trying to make the point that just because it's online doesn't mean it's not stealing.

"Anyone who wants a real experience from the game is going to BUY the game. If not, then they would never have bought it. Thus, piracy has little - no effect on a companies balance sheet, therefore making it a victumless crime."

Q.E.D.!

Ok, we're in a reality-resistant zone. I got it.

As for re-selling, yeah, the Evil Corporation - AND Warren Spector and Ted Levine - have already gotten their cut by then. That's why you can re-sell your cds, too - legally and morally.
