If rental's dont work at stores, maybe there should be an online rental place with some sort of encryption so the files cant be copied to disk, but u get to play the game for 3 or 4 days.

I don't think it's a huge deal to preview a game by playing it first and then deciding to buy or not based on that experience. The real crime is deciding to try it and then not going out and purchasing a license if you keep playing it. A mountain is being made out of a mole hill here IMO.

CHILDREN CUT THE CRAP.

Superfly, your ass is too close to being banned.

The rest of you who have been bungholes in this thread (personal attacks and the like), well, this is a warning... don't be such bungholes, or there may be consequences resulting in stuff like IP banning, account deletion.. you get the idea.

It's good that some companies like to release demo versions as that might help discourage some people from downloading a cracked copy even if it is just to try it out and see what they think of it before buying.

OK, then I'll go to the grocery store and steal a box of cereal I've wanted to try. Then after I eat the whole box and decide I like it, I'll start buying that brand. Or I'll go to Marshall Fields and steal a pair of Levis. If I like how they fit, I'll go back and buy three more pairs.

Rip, I love 'ya, but that's weak.

I'm with saturn on this one. Stealing can't be justified, it's still stealing.

The morality of stealing is another argument entirely. I personally don't give a crap if you steal video games. But don't try to act like you're anything more than a theif, because you aren't. That's the point I was trying to make. Ugh, it always take me like 5 posts to say what I want to say

This is not a box of cereal, it's a piece of software. It's not the same thing.

If I steal a car I get in a lot more trouble then stealing a package of bubble gum. Both are stealing but one is worse then the other. I'm simply showing that there are shades of gray here.

I agree that even demoing a game with the best of intentions, if using a cracked copy, is illegal and wrong. But I'm going to keep on doing it anyway because frankly I don't feel guilty about it no matter how much someone wants me to. I pay for the games I keep, end of story. They get their money.

I'm not losing sleep at night over this.
