I can't understand the logic- time is far more valuable than money. So a pirate says a game is worthy of their immensley valuable time to play a game, but not worth their money?
Honestly the whole argument of "pirating because it's not worth buying" is nothing more than a lame excuse and an attempt to justify stealing. How can it not be worth the less valuable thing (money) but worth the more valuable thing (time)? The logic does not add up.
Sure, some might say time isn't more valuable then money. To those I'll say they're ignorant and irresponsible and that they do not have their priorities straight.
In which case this could quickly turn into a morality debate but in the end it stands true that such rationale as "it's not worth my money so I pirate it" is nothing more than a feeble attempt to justify and make right and act which by it's very nature is wrong in it's entirety.
Not worth your money? Then it most certainly isn't worth your valuable and precious time- thus do not play it at all.
Good reply Redeemed and i certainly agree, yes i am peeved because Crysis 2 is not the PC game it should of been. I don't justify piracy in anyway but i also can't justify dev's blaming piracy on bad sales when the dev's have created a bad game. It is going to happen we all know that and some people like Lydianknight would just lie down and take it, and flame anyone who has valid points.
Forget about piracy for a minute and know this..Crysis 2 won't do so well because people won't buy a bad game, (or a game that is not what is hould have been).
