And yet, Breja is absolutely right. If as a developer you applied DRM, you can scream "self-entitlement" and "thief" and "pathetic" and "piss-poor" all you want, you deserved the piracy.
Plus, have you entered the pirates' heads and determined if the DRM is an "excuse to get something for free"? Let me guess. Of course not. You cannot, and we're not at the point where consumer mind-reading devices are available. You also falsely assume that pirating a game means you can't reward the devs. If you know the devs you respect and can access something like their Patreon, you're gold.
Face it, your screaming isn't going to get you anywhere. Face it, one pirated copy != one lost sale. Breja raises another good point: without piracy, some old classical games would be lost forever, unless you're willing to put down hundreds to thousands of dollars tracking a copy of the game online on eBay...or in the case of digital only games that are no longer for sale, piracy is your only option. Look what the "thieves" did. Kept providing old games, packaged games in neat installers with various configurations for anyone's needs, and stripped DRM. It is sad indeed that they're the ones providing all of these at once, and yet that's the reality.
Whaaaa, whhaaaaa. I'm going to throw my toys out of my pram because I'm a f*cking THIEF.
You DISGUST me, you utter piece of vermin. You use a shit excuse for your theft, and I really hope the devs look at posts like yours and decide to tell PC gamers to simply f*ck off, and go console exclusive.
What a bunch of self-entitled w8nkers you lot are. You make this forum exactly the shit hole it deservedly gets from those outside.
As for those games that might get lost, so what ? It's NOT for you to decide, you do not own the IP, or the copyright for those games, regardless of your excuses.
You are a SCUMBAG, and a THIEF, and I hope you get your just deserts at some point in your sad life.
calm down your acting like hes done something unspeakable to your family or something, so what if he pirated a few games its hardly crime of the century, granted i dnt condone piracy at all but you are taking it over the top
