Buying a used game from a company that resells the original game developers' game with no profit earned by the original game developers at least helps the business in question, which begs competition. For example, GameStop and Best Buy.
While pirating a game neither supports the game developers nor any business, thereby hurting both of them. Oh, and it's breaking the law.
I'd hope you don't pirate your self. You'd go to swipe yer booty, then realize you're rich, RICH AS FILTHY DOGS, I TELL YE! But then, you'd realize you swiped your own booty, so you get sad, give the booty back to your self, then go to the bar together and have a drink whilst talking about all the scurvy lasses you'd have swab your poop deck while your self makes sure they shiver your timbers.
...... I'm tired, and that sounds funny to me now, but probably will suck to someone who's not, you know, borderline delirious due to lack of sleep. AHOY!
If you get modded it was some other douche not me XD.

Online passes mean the majority of modern games require purchase regardless for full functionality. Beyond that DLC ensures that many gamers end up paying for content regardless of whether they bought new or used. Pirated games generally aren't compatible with DLC (especially on consoles) and thusly provide less opportunity for the developer to make money.
Your logic here would make more sense several years ago, but now developers are more able to make money off of used games regardless of whether it's as good for them as buying new. Either way, buying used games isn't a crime and stealing games is. Developers would definitely prefer you buy used to stealing their games outright.
This is starting to feel like a self reassurance topic >.>
I read the posts in the topic and that is what it sounds like to me as well.I have bought used games before and I didn't feel bad but.usually it was months after the game came out.
Agreed. I believe TC, even though he claims he doesn't pirate games, in fact does pirate games; therefore, he is trying to and subsequently failing at convincing us that buying games used is worse than pirating games, thus reassuring himself that he is doing right. Lol
how about if the person that pirates the game and never intended to spend money it to begin with, but finds the game great and decides to buy it?
it works both ways
the difference is people that buy used will never go back to buy a new copy, while the person that pirates have a higher chance of going back to buy new... why? because they havent spent any money on it yet
also buying used is worse because the people that pirate probably dont intend to spend money in the first place
Do people actually believe that reasoning?
You know, because someone who pirates games, people who don't and won't pay anything towards games, will suddenly want to pay full price for games even more so than people that pay for games, but might wait for an used copy.
That's not true, if they love the game after buying it used if there is a sequel there is a higher chance of them buying it new than someone who pirated the game.
I can't take your last sentence seriously.
