Okay, no bs, I've made the voting anonymous, do you pirate games and if so how much about...

I'd really like to get a sense of what's happening with the average user, although most here are probably more in tune then average... anyways vote away please...

oh, some quick defining up front...

I would define the following as pirating:
- downloading games via torrents or from p2p
- copying a friends game
- renting a game, installing on hd, getting a nocd and playing the game after its returned
- copy or download a game, play it, then for whatever reason don't buy it

What I would not consider pirating:
- borrowing a friends game, trying it out then returning it
- renting a game playing it returning it then erasing it
- making a backup of game, losing the original and playing the backup
- copy or download a game, play it, like it, then buy it

Did I leave out any grey areas?

Without delving into what you did 5 or 10 years ago, maybe just stick to what you do now or within the last couple years...

Did I break a forum rule, I said it was anonymous?

Let's see how things compare to what the industry officials claim... or is this too taboo for some people, c'mon...

I'm sure there are forum rules here against discussing piracy.

I will leave this thread open for now. But the first sign of it going south and the thread will be closed.

To other Mods/Admins, if you think it should be closed, I leave it to your decision.

It's up to you bro, but imo, nothing good can come of this.

I am going to have to agree with DD. There have been many discussions regarding piracy, and this thread is guaranteed to turn sour quickly.

Trust me, it's for the best. Closed.
