Lets say that you pay for mass effect 3 but, instead of going through Origin to get it,you download the game through a site like pirate bay so its drm free. would it still be considered pirating.

Yes, because you are breaking the copyright, even if you buy on a CD you don't own the game, if EA wants you to play that copy from Origin, you have to play it from Origin.

Yes, it's still pirating, but that doesn't mean it's wrong.

Right, but the law does not represent mores.

I really dont see it as pirating I gave them the money, if I bought it on console then origin would be out of the picture. but PC has to have it eh.

They'd see it as you bought 1 and stole another.

Careful pirating. Especially triple A titles. Lots of torrents are flagged and monitored. Wouldn't be surprised if your ISP got a notice from some copyright watchdog group hunting for people to financially ruin. Better off not risking it. Especially if you already bought the game.

Or you can just download a crack, instead of the entire game AGAIN
to me that's no different than simulating a console game on PC, which people here think it's perfectly legal
