    I've pirated most of these games and never experienced any of these things. You just got to make sure you find good copies and good uploaders who know what they are doing. Easy enough!

    Imagine if in Overwatch, if you got a pirated game, you could still play it, but it disables your primary and secondary fire. Also, HOLY SHIT SPYRO IS SO EVIL WITH THAT ANTI-PIRACY THING! I have that game, and now I am happy that it wasn't a bootleg or something.

    This just makes no sense. I mean, if they can tell when the game has been pirated, why not just block it to prevent people from playing it?

    But my favourite anti-pirate measure is still Gamedev Tycoon. That is total genius and made for some of the best whining on the internet.

    Zak McKracken came with a list of codes you needed for flights out of the US. If you entered wrong codes too often you were thrown in jail and got a fairly hilarious speech from the guard about piracy.
    Indy and the Last Crusade came with a version of Henry's Diary you needed to choose the right grail in the end, making it pretty much impossible to successfully complete the game without it.

    As a dude who makes pirating available for others, I will tell you one thing, no matter what devs put in their games, we can fix it and make the game playable like it's an original copy. Maybe first releases are bugged, but it's all fixed in time.

    Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate. I will pirate until the end of torrents and crackers, until it becomes illegal in my region or until I die. If I really like something, and I can afford it sooner or later, I am buying it. Until then, me and my fellow pirates pay the price in poverty. Yes. Poverty or low GDP/capita. The poverty in our countries, so your countries can prosper. Some of us(I hope most) don't do this because we want to, but because we have less choices. For one to prosper the other one has to diminish. That's how life is and no one can change it. So stop generalizing.

    You know what would be a great way of stopping piracy! What they could do is finish developing games before release and not charge more money for DLCs to complete the game you already paid for. Another good move might be to stop over hyping games and misrepresenting them at events like E3 ... but yeah silly features in the games works as well! ... I find it hard, as a gamer, to sympathize with developers when I have been stung so many times when I hand over my hard earned cash for something that quite frankly was mis-sold!

    Americans have no reason to pirate games, they get their games for really cheap. Every single fucking release is $100+ in Australia.

    The only other reason to pirate something is if the content was never properly released by the dev, or the content was banned in your country (The Guy Game, The Interview, Manhunt etc.)

    The reason it's not stealing is becuase all of your games that you paid for is not yours.

    If I was a game developer, the game would start up. Select your character. Loading...
    And a picture of a middle finger with the text 'Ye won't play now, motherfuckin pirate.'

    After you exit the game your whole PC/console would crash causing permament damage and causing a fire burning your house down and suddenly you're homeless. Or dead.

    Now think twice before pirating my shit.

    My idea for an anti-piracy measure: when you click "Play", the menu screen glitches up and the game transforms into a childish, crudely made edutainment minigame, which simulates an ethics class about not stealing. Who would like to go into buisness with me?

    Piracy is justified unless a demo of the game exists IMO, the very majority of people who pirate games do it to test the game in the absence of a demo. People who play pirated games legitimately can die, tho.

    There should be more games with these anti-pirate measures, though being forced to use discs to play games or be forced to have a stable internet connection is not the way. People who wear-out discs from over playing get somewhat annoyed when the discs need to be replaced. I'm sure everyone knows what I mean. It is nice to have a game, but to play a game to death is a bit much. Such as my CnC3KW disc, I have worn it out (5 physical cracks on the disc, preventing it from running), but to get a new copy anywhere is impossible unless you want to spend £20 or more. Not so bad, but for the fact the same game is only £7.99 in Origin store and the only way to purchase the disc is via online (the whole point of not using an online retailer is to not have the hindrance of putting sensitive information into a PC). What is everyone else's opinion?

    That with the Self destruct Units in RA2 if you use a pirated Copy isn't SO true.
    Yes they will do it, but not because it was pirated, but because you used a wrong registration code or have made an error there, for example put in a B insted of a eight.
    That have the same effect as is described here.

    So I think it hase more to do with a legal Code, insted of using a hacked Version.

    That's fine and all though it really sucks when the DRM stuff hampers players who buy the game... especially so when there was all that always on DRM which sometimes was unstable or unresponsive and was a real pain to deal with.... well at least the pirates had the luxury of not having to deal with it once they were able to get the game to run without the intrusive and annoying DRM

    Well luckily I only played one game which had annoying DRM which was heroes 6 and it at least got better
