You're right janggut.
When we owned the Amiga 1000, we had literally hundreds of games. We owned 5 of them. Why did we copy them? Because we could.
Now that I'm older, I don't pirate any more. Why? It is becoming harder to crack games. Games are a lot larger, hence download issues. A number of hacked games are incomplete, including only the gameplay and not the story elements. And I believe in supporting the wonderful teams who make these masterpieces and escapes.
