Have you ever STOLEN a game?
No but I was victim of stolen games.

No. I pride myself on being a working adult who can afford to buy his own toys, instead of some two bit punk skulking the aisles looking left and right afraid of being caught in the act.
Back before I was even a teenager, yeah. We're talking late 80's, early 90's. I used to steal SNES carts from Wal-Mart, back when they
used to keep them in the open, more or less. They had a plastic cover on them, but it only covered the edges. Same with blockbuster.
Retailers were absurdly trusting back in the early days.
Funny thing is, I quit doing it long before I got an SNES, but already had an awesome RPG collection. Not sure what my motivation or reason was,
other than I could. Never did without, had plenty of other games and toys, too. I was never raised like that, and would have gotten the beating
of a lifetime if my parents had suspected, much less got caught by someone. I guess I just enjoyed the adrenaline rush that came with it.
Worst thing I ever did as a young-un was go into a neighbor's house while they were gone, looking for something they kept from me. I
had a basketball goal in the backyard near their fence and sometimes I'd brick it and the ball would go over the fence. One day I went
asking for it back and one of the kids that lived there (we didn't get along well, as I recall) told me to get lost and it wasn't back there, even
though I knew better. I even asked their parents and they were rude and dismissive, too. While they were gone, I used the key they hid in
a plastic rock to go in and look for it. After I got my ball back (still in the back yard...), I looked around for the hell of it and found their
parents box o' porn and sex toys, which I promptly spread all over their house. Funny, they were ultra conservative/churchy/preachy.
I was a jerk, I guess. I swear I'm good people now, though... ..>.>

Better living through apathy. If you're into that sort of thing.
No way man, others have stolen games from me before though, it really sucks when you can't find a game till you realise it must've been stolen.
I did steal a broken tamagotchi from a store once(ONLY because it was broken) because it looked cool and thought they were going to throw it away.
OnDiscDLC posted...Yeah, back when I was growing up in the hood, me and my friends used to rob the EB Games (back before Gamestop took over most stores) every weekend. Once we got into the dope business, we were able to pay them back and they forgave us.
This is nothing to be proud of.

Never stolen a game but had some stolen from me. I was gonna trade some games with a kid in school. I put the games in my locker and around lunch time they were gone. I never had my locker broken in before and I knew the kid stole them but I had no proof. I told the principle but nothing happened.

he was obviously joking and it is kinda funny.
I used to care but now I take a pill for that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KaOrSuWZeM
A degenerate scumbag and I stole back and forth from eachother during our youth. Now, I've straightened up, and he's a public menace involved in burglary, animal cruelty/unlawful wildlife destruction, drug dealing, and pretty much everything in between. It's amazing that he's still a free man. The cops around here make the police from Demolition Man look like bad-asses.
Surrender and I will destroy you peacefully.

That's exactly why it was a "win response." He posted some hilarious **** that I KNEW he was completely making up, but you (mfinkle, and I'm sure many others) took him very seriously. It was a troll response that I found hilarious. lol

I stole a couple N64 games from my girlfriend's son because he was such a little brat years ago.
I accidentally stole a game I rented when I returned the empty case without the disc. I honestly didn't realize I had done it until about a month later when I found the disc with my other games. The rental store never called about it so I kept it. It was the first Driver game for PS1.
Back in the mid 90's my house was broken into and my 3DO system and most of the games were stolen.
