Still no excuse for piracy. I am only able to buy my own games now because I work and earn money for it. (used to really suck when all my mates got new games for Playstation while I was using my old SEGA still lol)

Games are a luxury, not a necessity.

So you're saying that because I'm poor, because 75% of the world is poor, we're not allowed to play games?

As for paying for my own games, I'd love to do that but I'm still in high school though it is my last year. I'd like to work and go to college at the same time cause another paycheck would help my family a lot but I doubt that the college I want to go lets students to take only tests.

No, I'm saying that anyone who can't afford to buy something (video game or otherwise) does not have the right to steal it instead.

I'll pirate music to see if I like how it sounds. If I like it, I'll purchase it, if I don't, I'll get rid of it.

I admit that I download games/movies/TV series/programs and even my OS illegally, if you're going to ask me why...well, I have my reasons, first of all most of video games aren't available where I live, second if they are they have a very unfair high price, GTA IV on 360 for example costs 300 nis (that's more than 80$), even if you find the 80$ worth it or affordable, it's not here, because the price of living in my country is different from Europe and U.S.

About programs/movies/dvds/tv shows and my OS, it's all available but the stores does the same thing I'm doing, they illegally download it and sell it to me for a fair price, now why would I buy an illegaly bought thing while I can illegally download it myself?

It is not right at all to do this but to me its the only right choice.

I myself dont like pirating games. I legally buy all of my games because I support the companys. When I want to know how a game is I either download a demo or find a friend who owns it and play it there.

When the world and my country fix themselves by having a better economy, financial disparity between a country becomes a thing of the past and the availability of games is actually greater in these "forgotten realms" then sure, let's buy expensive games.

I don't like thieves and such and although games should be a luxury, it just doesn't feel right for me that one third of my pay should go to buying a game.

I'm not saying that game pirates are a lot like Jean Valjean, stealing to survive, but in a way a lot of people want to enjoy games and have a bit of luxury in their lives. Can't blame them. Every man wants to live better than the other guy.

I'll admit, my pop wasn't a guy who had a big company and was a genius entrepreneur, he was banking all his dreams on an another man's vision that proved to be just as fragile as the man.

Personally I would've loved it if my family had a business selling weapons. I mean what's better than helping the stupid find more ways to kill the stupid?

I only rely on pirated games if they don't have any official release in my country. Otherwise I insist on getting the original.

I really don't blame the pirates for the piracy of digital goods because the end user is the only person to be blamed.
