Yeah, but that's the thing... if someone can't afford a game, they won't buy it. At that point, what difference does it make whether they play it ilegally or don't? The only difference it makes is to the enjoyment of that particular person, and nothing else. You can say "oh but that person would've otherwise bought the game when they had the money", and well, that's not always true. There's loads of people who wouldn't buy the game anyway... it's not about feeling "entitled" to play it, it's just about having a good time. I'm not saying piracy is okay, of course it's not. There's a lot wrong with it. But there are good things that can come from it, too.
Of course, in your extreme example, no good would come out of it, but reality isn't extreme.
You're piracy enabling attitude legit makes me laugh in embarrassment. I literally just chuckled out loud...
Playing video games is a privilege, not a right. Of course it makes a difference BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T F***ING BUY IT! Holy shit dude... I'm gonna go out on a limb here and safely guess that you pirated alot of shit in your time.
