PostSubject: A question about piracy.   Thu Mar 15, 2012 4:44 pm



I have a question to you all. Do you believe it is wrong to Pirate video games/movies/music etc? If you do/dont why not?

I personally believe this. If you buy a game on another system such as XBoX 360, PS3 or even old games consoles, it's completely fine to download that game and play it.
I also believe that if you torrent a game and are really enjoying it you should buy it to support the developer.
However i also believe that content that is half assed and only made for money or developers who are pr*cks dont deserve my cash.

Also, torrents are a very good way to demo a game since you have full access to it Smile

Post your thoughts Smile

Also just remember alot of the time that your money is going to the creators 8th car, not people in need.
But does that justify it?

I just think if you don't like the game, yet you'd pirate it in spite of the developer or publisher, it still seems wrong. I do think many publishers and developers don't deserve money for their games, but I wouldn't pirate it either. It's still technically stealing and also hypocritical given you don't like the game and didn't buy it, but you'd play a copy of it. The car example is bad because if there are two of your cars out in the world, and the copy got pulled over, your ass would probably be getting the ticket without you knowing

Regardless, I'm no angel and I have pirated before, but everything I have pirated, I do plan on buying the game in the future as well as pirated games I owned prior, but can no longer play.

It's an opinionated subject.

Some developers, such as Notch, promotes pirating the games as a way of finding your opinion on it without possibly wasting money, but there are demos and trials and whatnot for most games for you to do that in, or renting a game like myself to find out how it is. Notch already has millions of dollars from Minecraft and will continue to get money, so I don't think he'd care too much that some people pirate the game, though I'm sure he'd prefer those people to buy it.

Like I said, it's a touchy opinionated subject and I'm somewhat neutral on it. With this whole SOPA/ACTA/PIPA thing, maybe I'll lean more towards pirating games, just to flip them off. Razz

I'm taking an entire college course on this so I could go on for hours.

So I won't.

Very Happy

I'll be quick and say that I eventually buy whatever I pirate (I only pirate music, due to my lack of knowledge on how to pirate games, movies, etc.)

I also think if you have bought it on a different system it's fine as well

Simple!


PIRATE IF ...

>>You own the game already, on any system. it might have broken, or you just just don't wanna but it again on PC if you have it on PS3 or Xbox.

>>You hate the game/record company with your guts (such as Electronic Assholes) and don't want to support thier *censored*, yet want to try the game (to see how shite it is)

FINALLY, if you cant get the game full stop. then you have no other way to get it, obviously.


DON'T PIRATE IF

>>You're lazy

>>You're broke. this is the most faggy reason ever. and only PBfags will say it's a good reason. no disrespect to tPB meant. just most users.

>>you're a giraffe. you can't use electronics anyway.

OF COURSE... there's music. and music gets pirated. if just does. what i have to say about that... well, go ahead. and if you absolutely love it, get the album, import it even. that's what I do.

this was a gay post by your friendly neighbourhood otaku, blood. and yes, i know it sucked. but i enjoyed posting it... i haven't enjoyed posting something on this forum in a long time...

Keep your wits about you! -Blo od
