Buying a used game, thus spending money, but none of it goes to the game's devolopment.

Pirating a game, spending no money, but getting game for free against the law.

In my personal opinion I feel buying a used game is worse. Because you could of stole the old used game and then spent the money on a new game.

So when you buy the game used you're literally taking money out of the market that would have went to support game development. While when you pirate no money that would have went to a game's development is lost.

So Discuss ^_^

Please do not forget what the question is asking.

Which is "which is worse on game creators." Not which one is ethically worse.

So when you're saying pirating is worse you're saying a victimless crime is worse then a crime with a victim.

I think pirating is worse because sometimes, when someone buys a used game, if he enjoys it, he'll buy the sequel new.

This happens with pirating to. Especially when it comes to colt classics.

Buying used takes money out of gaming market that could of went to a real game developer instead of some scum sucking company taking advantage of game makers.

While pirating takes nothing from any game company other then spreading the word of its product to more people.
