Forums - Gaming Discussion - Is it okay to Pirate games?

What about a game like Burnout 3 that you cannot buy on PC? Is there anytime it is okay to pirate?

If you already own it, then it's ok to "pirate" it.

If you don't already own it, then you're a filthy pirate!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Meh, I am too obliged to morality to do something like that.

The only time I'd consider doing it is for some obscure retro game that costs hundreds of dollars for a copy and isn't available anywhere else.

Then you buy a supported system if you want to play that game... d'uh.

Nobody is entitled to get every game for the prefered platform.

No its not.

Not that I have anything against piracy, but its that with games sales os the only revenue stream they have. You pirate them, and you take that away.



Burnout 3 is $2 on Ebay



imo. I lost a bunch of games I bought in the past. I pirated like. 1 game in the last ~10 years. and that was Red Alert 2. am not giving EA money I bought that long time ago but lost the cd

 

now if you go on the general gaming subreddit they will tell you that pirating console ISOs is fine because apparently buying a console and supporting games is the devil. 



I am 100% against current generation piracy, though I'm ok with pirating older games to play on emulators.

Yeah I think this is the general idea... although by asking "Is it okay to pirate games", using the term "pirate", you're asking if it's okay to do something illegally, lol.
