that was the reason why I pirated the witcher 2 though

Another one was Mass Effect. The galaxy map doesn't work in a pirated copy, making it just an extended demo. You can get around this with cheat engine but still, that's just annoying.

Piracy isn't theft. It's copyright infringement.

Автор Sophie Sykes ( назад)
all games should have free demos availble, so the customer knows if they like the game or not, before purchasing

Автор gangforce ( назад)
the one from the witcher 2 isnt true. i played it this week, and no granny sadly

I fucking hate it when people shit all over other peoples hard work.

My spyro was like that and I bought it.

Автор Lorigulf Noldor ( назад)
Actually, stealing or not (stealing = "taking from other the good that other did not want to give to you, while depriving them of this good"), I think we all would agree that copyright infringement is STILL "taking from others what others did NOT give to you by their own good will". Depriving them it may be not; non-consensual taking from others it still IS, and from karmic perspective, it is still misconduct.

Oh. you mean like ridiculously difficult enemies?
Or even not loading the game at all?

Before there was not real reason to pirate because major games was good. Now games sucks.

Soooo, the anti-piracy policy for Spyro 3 was to just give it the problems of a NES game?

Hm... I pirated Mirror's Edge back in the day, I'm ashamed to say. There were no problems.
Update: Same with Crysis: Warhead.

That Witcher 2 granny sex scene is fking hilarious.

Meanwhile in the 90's, iD Software encourages people to share and copy as many copies of Doom as possible. -- Anyways I don't see a problem with pirating games, I mean people who pirate games either ain't going to buy the game anyways or use it to test if the game is worth paying for anyways. You know, like a demo, so you won't pay for something that is marketed but pay for what the game actually is.

What about age of empires 2 saying you are victorious at 5:11 minutes in the game

So developers have the time to write anti-piracy messages, but no time to finish games before releasing them for full price! Yeah piracy exists for a reason!

If a game designer could tell if you were playing a cracked version, he could just program it to say "error" and not run at all.

Whats with all the comments from people proud to be pirating...? Good job you fucked over the devs who make it feasible for you to actually play the game. Kind of sad the amount of people who think thats something to brag about.

Gamedev tycoon, a game that copy-pasted everything from a game made by kairosoft for mobile, except the graphics, which somehow are shitier. Who pays to play that :))

What most people don't really know is that ORGINAL games on most third world countries cost a SHITON more money that in EE.UU, Japan or most EU countries, for example, in my coutry (Argentina) every dolar cost almost 20 times my national currency (argentine pesos). Imagene a game like CSGO ten times is base dolar price... even with discounts it's a lot of money for us.

OK ok so I am pretty sure I came across 75% of those games first as a Pirate copy (not mine of course it was ling on the Internet) and you know what eventually I both a copy cause they were really good games. Never came across any of those "Genius" jokes. I smell something funky.

my biggest fear is what if they programmed it wrong and it can effect legal copies. some of these are pretty great. just hope when devs implement this they make sure that it cant interfere with people who buy it.

I've never heard of the self destruct sequence in Red Alert 2 and I've been a hardcore fan of the game since I was 8. And I've always played pirated copies. How is this even possible?

There's also the fun anti piracy measure either in Pokemon Black/White or Black/White2 where when you earn enough experience points for your pokemon to level the experience meter resets and the pokemon gains no level.

Автор Ignit Wacom ( назад)
I understand that piracy is not a very nice thing, but you make it sound like its the same as killing a person or something. There are people who can't afford games so easily, and love to play them. I know this is a really bad thing for indie games, but mirrors edge? That AAA game whose sales were up to millions? Come on.
Also, people who do piracy don't "feel like the best thief" or "a great pirate", they are doing it to play games who otherwise would cost them a lot.
In my case, I used to play pirated games, until I got my own money, then I bought most of the games that I had pirated, how do you know that doesn't happen with other people?

Автор FizzyWM ( назад)
I made the mistake of legally purchasing Game Dev Tycoon from the Windows Store on Windows 8 when it was first released. It treated me as though I pirated the game and constantly screwed me over because of pirates in the game.

So I pirated it and it worked perfectly and I had no issue.

Fuck that game.

You know all this crap gets fixed from the crack right? Fucking stupid video, pirate games until companies stop releasing unfinished shit ass busted games.

Автор Nemo D333 ( назад)
People who play pirated games are not pirates, they are consumers of pirated content, you mug. People who crack games, they are pirates. But this is developers fault. They inflate price for new games like everyone have loads of money to spend. Games must cost in range of £5-10/$5-10, but not £40-50/$40-50. It just ridiculous.

Автор marcus24000 ( назад)
i get that piracy is annoing but there kinda causing it,when you make a game verry expensive or make dlc´s that cost allot people tend to go for piracy,i know making a game costs allot so the root of the problem is the people making the technology are selling it to expensive. i bet that if you make a game less expensive youl sell more. especialy with more people out of jobs because of diploma demands or replacing people with robots,when all this happens wel something has got to give meaning change. if it where just the game oke but cd with music cost allot aswel and movies and going to the movies and clothes everything gets more expensive each year so people have less money to spread and if you wanna go in vacation aswel wel all this together costs allot.

If pirates weren't busy exploiting how bad software developer teams really were, they'd have no reason to fix anything at all; it's about more than just how easy software is to reverse engineer / pirate. It's about how corporate entities in control of software (and hardware! *x265 fail*) development don't have their priorities in order because profit is always first.

Автор Data Miner ( назад)
The reality is, piracy fuels inspiration. Just like drugs fuel art. If it weren't for all those 'losers' the corporations exploit, expose, and ultimately, milk for profits (like they do all the other people buying their incomplete beta products, since beta testers are now: the public! eg: hotfixes, patches, etc... stuff that should be done before the product is released to the public in order to 'beta test' for the corporation)

Another hilarious anti-piracy thing I read about was in Batman: Arkham Asylum. There's one room early in the game where it's filled with deadly poison, and you have to use your cape hovering abilities to avoid falling down there.

But if you have a pirated copy, the hovering doesn't work, and instead the cape breaks instantly, causing you to fall to your death.

I'm from brazil, and back when I got my ps1, there wasn't much games for sale here. And since the originals where so expensive for my family to afford then, my mom got me some pirate games. One of then was spyro. I really used to love that game. I expent hours playing it, and since english is not my native language and I was a child, I didn't understand what the npc's where saying. Well, when the last boss fight came to me, I was super excited. And than, in the middle of the fight, the game stops, and I went back to the beginning of the game, with all of my achievements lost. That was one of the saddest moments of my childhood. And now with this video, at the same time I get sad because of playing pirate games and never where able to play it correctly, a huge weight got off my chest. And it's so cool to know this little detail that made part of me for so long. I can only thank this channel for this.

Things that hurt the gaming industry:
1.) Buying into microtransactions
2.) Pre-ordering (this isn't 2001, stop)
3.) Buying shit DLC that allows companies to get away with making small DLC teams to pump out cheap side missions, reskinned enemies, weapons and armor that used to be free updates or downloads for anywhere from a third of the cost of the game to easily half or more.
4.) Settling for poor quality and overlooking it because it's your favorite franchise.
5.) Buying yearly releases and rewarding companies for creating subscription services in video game franchise form.

Things that don't hurt the gaming industry:
1.) Piracy. (and no you ass clowns I don't pirate games I have a well stocked steam account and GoG account as well)

Why is Settlers 3 not mentioned in this list? It was hilarious as soon as you managed to produce iron bars and the smelter was putting it on the ground, it turned into a pig. So you had meat but no iron at all. So had no chance to create soldiers :)

I remember playing a cracked version of crysis 3 and they made is so when u reached the final boss, it woudn't take any damage at all, so all the hours i spent on were kinda pointless cos i never finished the story. but yeah, i just went to youtube to see the ending and moved to my next cracked game. cheers devs

Автор deffdefying ( назад)
If I were a game developer, I wouldn't put any anti-piracy measures that occur during the game.

I'd just make cracked versions not load at all.
