I am actually thinking piracy isn't such a bad thing after all. Atleast you get to sample what your getting, seeing as they stopped doing demos of games knowing they will be too much of a mess to let the public in on it. Slap extra Ts and Cs in EULAs and they've got your money without any come backs.
This is the very last gaming PC i'm buying, it just isn't worth the grief anymore.
I think the behavior and implementation of all this stuff game makers put out drives a lot of people to torrents. I myself have gone that route for some time now. I get the game, if I like it I buy it and if I don't I un-install the game (call it the try before you buy approach). I also like the benefits of being able to play a game not having to use Steam. No multiplayer of course but I don't multiplay anyway.
