I couldn't care less about Halo 2 personally, though negative opinions breed negative feedback. Once again, the morality of stealing was never the issue. Well, not with me, anyway.

How's downloading a game and playing it to see if you like it any different from you borrowing the game from a friend and trying it? The only difference I see is that if you borrow the game, you must return it if you want to keep your friend. If you download the game, there is no friend asking you for the game back so it's morally up to you to make the right decision. Some people can't make that hard decision so their better off keeping away from the temptation.

And what happens when you lend out your games? Ignorance doesn't excuse piracy so if you lend out your games you can't pretend that the lendee could not be copying your CD or using a No-CD crack. You may feel better because you didn't actually download or copy the game, but you contribute just as much to the problem because that's one less original that will be bought.

I haven't played it, what made you think that? My fiance pre-ordered the SE a while back...I'm waiting till then. I honestly don't care much for Halo, but she loves it, so since it will be in the house, I will give it a shot. I don't steal games, not even for a "test ride" ...just ain't my thing, I love games and want to see them flourish, so I go by the " ya takes yur chances" cliche, if her and I don't like Halo 2, oh well....there's always the option to trade it in

I was defending him based on his opinion. People said he had no right to say the game sucked because he didn't pay for the game. I understand where there coming from, but at the same point, if it sucks-regardless to how you played it, it still sucks. If it's a bad game, it's a bad game. So that's why I said, I wonder if there would have been such a backlash, if he had said "Best.Game.Ever." like i'm sure they will in EGM and every other console mag next month.

It doesn't bloody matter what he thought of the game. It was stolen, bottom line. Maybe it will suck, but I sure as hell trust the console magazines more than a thief.

You'll trust a bias, paid off magazine more than a first hand review from an average gamer...er...thief..? I say we don't trust any of them and wait for Nov. 9th.

Heh, Superfly, you should join the political thread discussions. This is nothing compared to those, and people make clearer arguments there. It's fun.
Im growing to like you, you should pop over for a beer.

That's the problem, you'd trust a console mag that gives the highest scores to their heaviest advertisers over someone giving an unbiased opinion. I consider mags that hand out extremely generous reviews as the thieves because they are the cause of me wasting $50 on a garbage game. I base my game purchases on actual gameplay or feedback from people I know, neither of those can come from a game mag.

Yeah, I remember Fable getting some pretty decent scores, and I thought that game of a pile of garbage. Same with a bunch of other games that have come out recently. I go to gamerankings.com and read the lowest-scoring review, which is usually the one I agree with. I have to hand it to Gamespy, while their reviews aren't always that well thought-out, they won't hesitate to give a 3-star rating to a big game coming out. IGN, on the other hand, is down on its knees every time a game is released. I hate that site.

If it was that bad, why did you play it for more than an hour or so, then deleted it?
