Wrong. Sure, we've all pirated games at one point or another. That isn't the point. The point is, if you steal someone's hard work, you don't get to say anything about it. You forfeit your right to have a valid opinion, because you are a criminal. Normally when criminals admit their guilt they get arrested and go to jail, and forfeit their rights as citizens. Why is it any different here?

Wrong again. Several places have tried doing this. People rented the games, copied the CDs, and returned them. Gamestop used to give full cash refunds within the first 7 days of a game purchase. What did people do? Bought the games, copied them, returned them for a full refund.

So it's OK to steal if you just want to see if what you're stealing is any good? No, sorry. That doesn't make it OK. "End up getting lazy and keeping it on their HD"? Uh, ok...
