well it is technically a form of theft, but its about as serious as taking a bunch of straws and ketchup packets from the nearest Burger King to bring home. nobody here gives a shit. cept salty game devs.This thread is so fucking funny. Of all the issues to get all morally outraged over: downloading copies of digital entertainment
This is how I know y'all are mostly leftists down deep despite a momentary affection for Trump -- some of you people fixate on the dumbest and least important shit and call it morally important while accepting actual moral outrages as perfectly OK.
Its 2019 and we have people still calling sharing files "theft". Fucking hysterical. Fight the good fight against this very important moral issue!
.. and yeah, copyright infringement is technically illegal, so if you consider breaking any laws to be immoral then it is immoral. I think all rational people can agree it is a far different level of "wrong" than actual theft, though. Since nothing is lost.
imo, those salty game devs have also pirated, i'm sure they learned to code on some WAREZ version of VB6. It's like the Mueller, if you dig deep enough everyone on this forum has engaged in some form of piracy, it's silly to be so sanctimonious.nobody here gives a shit. cept salty game devs.
ive been vidya gaming for 40 years and i figured i pirated some game at some point. best i can come up with my dad gave me his old games he no longer used or just burned me a copy of the games he was using.imo, those salty game devs have also pirated, i'm sure they learned to code on some WAREZ version of VB6.

I am actually pretty shocked that, at my office, other tech nerds are themselves shocked that I pirate movies and tv.
Or you know, to just send you cash? That's literally what gold farming is, and it exists in basically every online game with a playerbase.I guess what I'm curious about is if you could abuse some sort of game farming in exchange for some one in another country to buy you a game or some shit.
Lately I only pirate songs that I cannot find on Google Play.Meme's aren't piracy, they're fair use.
I pirated music when I was in my early 20s. I eventually decided that I'm not the sort of penniless loser that has to steal inexpensive items, nor am I able to delude myself into believing that it's a victimless crime which is obviously not true. Best case you are a leech on society and if everyone behaved the way you do, there would be no movies or video games, or certainly not on the level they are at now.
Bull-fucking-shit cupcake. If you are going to come down on someone pirating games, you playing EQ without subscription is absolutely the same thing because there is no offline EQ.My boxed edition of Everquest Titanium says otherwise.
I just chose to not utilize their subscription option and played off my disk.
