I whould like to ask you for your opinion on piracy of digital goods , video games in particular.
in the eyes of alot of people (not including me) piracy & cheating are often associated with eachother.
so it seemed a good question to ask around here.

i myself find piracy not to be tolerated
however, to not only blaim the pirates , i also blaim the dev's for the consistantly shorter getting games these days
i've been gaming for a considarable amount of time and in the old days (10 years back), games whould last 15 + hours singleplayer on avarage. now the trend seems to be to shorten the games, and make DLC available , so that we can pay for stuff that should have been there in the first place.
a good example is the CoD:Modern Warfare 2 SP , which is around 8 hours for a casual player, and the 15 euro map packs they offer ,with 2 recycled maps and 2 new ones.
im sure you all know what i mean by this example.
so from this point of view, i do understand peoples reason to go pirate games.
i do not approve it , but i do understand were they are coming from.

Honestly it depends on the company and the game. For example people love to pirate Ubisoft games because of the DRM that ubisoft implemented.

It depends.

If it's an emulator, and the game being emulated is hard to get a hold of, then I'm fine with it.

Illegally downloading other games, however, is disgusting. I don't care if you're "just seeing if it's worth buying". You could probably download a legal demo easily for a lot of games. Don't make bad excuses.

I prefer to buy games. I don't think piracy is fully justified but I can understand some of the reasons people do go pirate.

If you don't want to buy it because you don't think it's worth the price tag then wait until it comes down in price, they all do eventually.

If you can't afford a game then welcome to the real world where you miss out.

(Not saying I'm perfect)

I only buy games I really, really, really like cause I'm not a little rich spoiled brat so I don't have money for every damn game I want to play.

Also @ Shibby, you should move to Balkan. You'd be in awe to see that 95% of games here have the same price since the day they came out. For example, Call of Duty Black Ops is here 100$ and will remain like that for next 4-5 years. Just like CoD4 and WaW and many other games.

Maybe you could purchase them online?

Read my first line. Just because I don't have cash doesn't mean I or my parents have valid cards.
