Gameplay videos are insufficient as they lack the ability for the player to get a feel for the controlers as well as areas that the player in the video miss. A proper solution would be a demo of the game released (like my PS1 came bundled with like 20 game demos on one CD and I had a blast learning different games and such).

Yes, but some demos lead to disappointment thus giving the pirates yet another pathetic excuse.

If you find a game disappointing why would you want it? It's not piracy if you decide "this game is disappointing" and not get the game at all.

People pirate it to "see if it's worth buying".

Then even if it is they NEVER buy it.

But that's what the demo is for...

Example: I played the demo version of MGS1. It gave a huge decent amount of time and it ended on a very good point

Spoiler:

The demo ended after the DARPA Chief has his heart attack then fades to a "To Be Continued..." screen afterwards

I was thoroughly pleased with the story and gameplay and proceeded to ask my parents to buy it (which they did after the school term ended).

Neo, I haven't had a pirated game since I was ten and I didn't understand the concept of things like copyright. I can't pretend to understand these people.

However, they tend to enjoy illegally downloading a game, claiming they'll pay for it eventually and then never doing so. I can think of one person in particular who does so.

It comes down to the fact people are like that, and want things for free. But it also comes down to pack mentality.

For example look at 4chan if anyone has been there, obviously if your not old enough don't waste your time, they gang up on people and new people will join the gang because they long to be accepted like everyone else.

Same can be for warez users, again Pirates is too good a word to describe them and Pirates are people who sell warez for profit, they see people use the same excuses they have been using for about 20 years or so now and use them themselves. Makes them feel good inside I suppose cause they know they are doing wrong, but like a drug it will continue and continue until they have no PC or no broadband to get anything, in which they turn to the pirates for their warez.

At the moment PC gaming is starting to go into the final phase of protections, server authentications and in game online phases, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has a small amount of it with investing etc and Darkspore although playing the SP campaign has times where you have to get help from other players and some stats etc are server sided.

It will get to the stage where it will be like MMO's even for SP campaigns etc, where everything you want to do needs to be online and connected to a server with a legit copy. Warez groups will see the challenge and start off making emulators of sorts but eventually they will even get bored trying to find every database item to emulate and just give up.

This also affects CH as training those games will be nigh impossible. Cal has already hinted that Darkspawn is server sided and it may come down to the fact there won't be a trainer for it.

But if the warez groups continue to make server emulators for games, then it will force developers and publishers away from the PC market. We shall see.
