If you couldn't afford them then you simply don't get to play them.
Oh I can't afford a car does that give me the right to break into a car showroom and pinch one? I was never going to buy one so it must be!
You know this comparison is so fckn retarded its not even funny. First off, I never pirated anything so save the self righteous bullshit for someone else. And lets break down the facts here. If a person steals a car they are taking something that physically exists, something that will cost the company money to replace. If a person pirates a game, in all honestly they are not costing anyone any expense. Sure they MIGHT have been a possible customer to actually purchase the item. But even that bears the burden of proof.
Like I said though, there are much more important things to worry about in this world than internet pirates. I'd rather let the police worry about the drug dealers,rapists, murderers than worry about 14 year old Jimmy that pirated Gears of War. Really is worrying that so many ppl see stopping internet pirates as their great crusade. If your gonna pick a battle to fight, make it one that worth fighting.
